Coverage includes forwards, futures, options, swaps, and related products and trading strategies, with practical examples that demonstrate each conceptin action. The companion website provides Excel files that illustrate pricing, valuation, sensitivities, and strategies discussed in the book, and practice and assessment questions for each chapter allow you to reinforce your learning and gauge the depthof your understanding.
