### Volatility adjustment for SOFR/OIS caplet referencing LIBOR vol

I will refer to Risk-Free Rates (RFR) for greater generality, instead of OIS or SOFR. There are two dimensions to your question, I will treat them separately. How to adjust a LIBOR vol surface to ...

### Why is CSA currency OIS rate used in discounting instead of local currency OIS?

The problem here is that your market is not arbitrage-free: JPY OIS = 10% per day, flat USD OIS = 0% per day, flat USDJPY spot = 100 USDJPY Forward for tomorrow = 100 A quick sense check ...

### What is Dual Curve Bootstrapping? And how to do it, with an example?

A multi-curve means that you observe the discounting instruments (such as fed funds) and projection (libor, swap curve) and solve for all of them simultaneously; as opposed to bootstrapping separately ...

### Why is CSA currency OIS rate used in discounting instead of local currency OIS?

To expand on Marcino's correct appraisal of the matter: arbitrage was introduced with the 4 pieces of market data. i.e. JPY OIS = 10% per day, flat USD OIS = 0% per day, flat USDJPY spot = 100 ...

### Curve building dates overlapping impact on discount factor

There is no overlapping, the first instrument is tied to the LIBOR rate starting at $25/10/2019$, the second one is tied to the LIBOR Rate at $27/04/2020$. For the sake of clarity, let assume that ...

### Curve building dates overlapping impact on discount factor

Your rates do not overlap. You have a 6M (185/360) rate of 5%. And a forward rate agreement where the 5.2% rate starts at the end of your initial contract (4/27/20) for a period of 6M (183/360). ...

### Building a consistant Forward curve in the multicurve framework

One possible solution is to build "synthetic" short term 6M IBOR deposits by extrapolating for $T < 6\text{M}$ from the 6M IBOR deposit and 1x7, 2x8, etc. 6M IBOR FRAs as I have seen done in ...

### Yield curve bootstrapping: direct market rates vs discount factors interpolation

If we interpolate between the two libors $L_1$ and $L_2$ (spot rates) with maturities $T_1$ and $T_2$ the discount factor at $T\in(T_1,T_2)$ is  P(T)=\frac{1}{1+TL(T)}=\frac{1}{1+T\frac{(T_2-T)L_1+(...

### What XCCY pricing inputs do large market makers use for FX Forwards/Swaps?

To be blunt, we make them up - generally as an implied yield over sofr if usd is the main base currency quote. This is fundamentally true for almost every derivative price, at some level the price ...

### Cash flow mapping on multi curve framework

From recollection don't you only map the fixed cashflows? If the 6m rate is 1% and your swap is at 0.5% then on a notional of 100 you map: 6m curve @6m: +1 OIS curve @6m: -0.5 If the 6m6m forward ...

### How to construct a GBP FVA curve from a USD FVA curve

There are two aspects to consider here. Aspect 1 is funding the notional of the Xccy swap and the coupons (strictly speaking this is not FVA). Aspect 2 is funding the MtM of the swap throughout the ...
