LBMA launches silver forward, gold interest rate swap curves
London (Platts)--1Jun2011/746 am EDT/1146 GMT
The London Bullion Market Association has launched a silver forward curve and a gold interest rate swap curve, the LBMA said Wednesday.
The LBMA silver forward curve contains 10 tenors from one week to three years, while the LBMA gold IRS curve contains 10 tenors from one to 10 years.
The datasets are created from data supplied by the LBMA's eight forward market makers: The Bank of Nova Scotia - ScotiaMocatta, Barclays Bank, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs International, HSBC Bank USA, JP Morgan Chase, Societe Generale and UBS.
They are currently supplied to all LBMA gold forward curve subscribers and are free of charge until the end of Q3 2011.
The LBMA gold forward curve went live in January.
"The success of the LBMA gold forward curve and the speed at which these further datasets have been established is a testimony to the efficiency of the market makers," said Kevin Crisp, the LBMA's chairman, in a statement.
"The support of the market has been encouraging and I look forward to many more developments of this kind."
