### Dual Curve Bootstrapping - When to OIS discount?

Modern curve building methodologies, certainly implemented in top tier fixed income trading houses, use a simultaneous non-linear solver to construct all curves at once. Essentially the procedure is: ...

### Why would a 15Y swap index=EUR3M and discount=OIS, show only a EUR3M-delta at 15Y

Regardless of single- or multi-curve framework, you can always think of a vanilla, fixed-to-float interest rate swap as a linear combination of a long (short) fixed rate bond and a short (long) ...

### How to resampling the risk of a specific tenor on a interest rate curve without replace the instrument?

Let's assume that the relevant pillar $t$ of your curve is currently (exclusively) calibrated using the reference instrument $f_0$ at market quote $q_0$. The instrument could be a swap, a forward rate ...

### Bootstrap yield curve with QLNet / Quantlib

I do not yet know QuantLib but one question is general and easy to answer: My first question is why do they use different yield curve? These two curves differ by risk levels inherent in them - the ...

### Deriving a 3M libor curve from 6M libor swaps and 3M-6M libor basis swaps

Let $\delta$ be 3 month and consider points of interest $\{T_i\}_i$ evenly spaced with $T_{i+1} -T_i = 3 month$. The Forward Rate $F_m^n(t)$ from period m to n at time $t$ is defined by (1 + \delta (...
