### Constructing the FedFunds Yield Curve with jumps at FOMC meetings

When constructing the FedFunds yield curve I want to define the curve based on two separate interpolation schemes. The first on the short end being LogLinear on the discount factors between FOMC ...

### Forecasting forward curve using Gaussian Process Regression

I have daily closing prices of crude oil monthly contracts up to 36 months. Some contracts are not very liquid so there are missing prices at random. I stitched together contracts to make them rolling ...

### How can a future exhibit both normal backwardation and be in contango?

My understanding is that "contango", when describing the forward curve, describes forward prices that are above the current spot price, i.e. $F_{t+1} > F_{t} > S$. This is directly ...

### Building a forward curve for multiple tenors - Quantlib python

I am attempting to build a forward curve for multiple tenors (1M / 3M / 6M / 12M) using the quantlib library. The input to my model are sofr swaps(1W through 50Y). It appears I am building my curve ...

### Forward interest rate curve family parametrization

There are many academic sources, books and articles, introducing forward interest rate curve. For example, those authors define $f(\tau)=f(\tau;\beta_0,\beta_1,\beta_2,\lambda)$ as a function of time ...

### How to calculate forward swap curves for different tenors using QuantLib in python

I am interested in calculating the forward curve for different swap tenors. I have the below code in Python, but I believe that this only calculates the forward discount curve. Are we able to modify ...

### What's the difference between short rate and the bootstrapped interest rate?

This thing confused me for a long time, since we can a have a curve (e.g. LIBOR 3M) bootstrapped from the market quotes of instruments (e.g. FRA, SWAP), and we can get the spot rates and also the ...
