Here is the course on pricing IRS (Interest Rate Swaps) and CCS (Cross Currency Swaps) divided into three separate sections that address basics of interest rate swaps, term structure modeling, bootstrapping zero and forward curves and mark to market and valuation.
We close the session with a short two step case study that walks through the process of building the forward curve and completing an MTM exercise for a Swap using a live example presented as a test question.
A short review of the pricing process and swap terminology. Feel free to skip if you are already comfortable with the language.
