Swap Markets



A swap is an agreement between two parties to exchange two differing forms of payment obligations. There are basically two types of swaps; an interest rate swap and a currency swap. In an interest rate swap the exchange involves payments denominated in the same currency, while in a currency swap the exchange involves two different currencies.
