I trade a lot of treasury curves, so say I have a portfolio of treasury cash and futures products (longs and shorts). How do I find the portfolio DV01 risk and curve risk? I couldn't find anything that could help me get started online. If anyone has any resources please help.

CME has DV01s on their website, I think only for futures. Beyond that you'll need a data provider such as bloomberg, reuters, or subscribe to barclays live.

To calculate DV01 and curve risk you should be able to calculate price from yield first. You could probably take a look at QuantLib - it should able to price a bond from yield. Once you can do that, you can do whatever risk calculations you want. For example, to calculate DV01 you would change yield by 1 basis point and then reprice it.

  • $\begingroup$ What's the industry standard approach to calculating curve risk? That's what I'm stuck on... $\endgroup$ – A1122 May 23 '17 at 8:05
  • $\begingroup$ Yield curve risk is a risk of loss arising from a change in the shape of the yield curve. You can consider scenarios of the change in the shape of the yield curve: steepening/flattering; and assume that the worst case scenario would be your curve risk. $\endgroup$ – Alexander May 25 '17 at 5:41
