thank you in advance anyways! I do have a question that drives me mad.

How do i calculate the Swap DV01 for a Interest Rate Swap?

I think for a bond i multiply the discounted cashflows times the point in time, and divide it through the bond price to end up with duration and thus i can end up with dollar value of 1 bp.

But for a european IRS i do not know.

I think there exists the cash formula, but this suggests a flat interest curve which is not applicable.

KR and thanks everybody!

you can calc it as the difference in npv you get when you bump the yield curve and calc your npv , vs your original npv

  • $\begingroup$ agreed, so many times people conflate a dv01 with the present value of a basis point annuity - it's almost that, but not quite (particularly important when u generalise to eg credit risky swaps) $\endgroup$ – Mehness Dec 11 '16 at 12:10
