Recently I wrote an experience report on running Monte Carlo simulation on a GPU for the newsletter of TopQuants. My piece is here.
Recently I had to familiarise myself with commodity futures. One thing that surprised me was the common unit of measurement for natural gas. It is used in MMBtu, which is a short for a million of British thermal units. It … Continue reading

Recently I needed to build a Monte Carlo simulator of a continuous-time Markov chain. This is a pretty straightforward exercise; the only catch was that I wanted it to perform well, so I had to use a fast algorithm for … Continue reading
Let’s calculate CVA (credit value adjustment) analytically. We will see that analytical CVA calculation is quite complex even for a fairly simple transaction (a vanilla swap). A few shortcuts will help us simplify the calculation.
When we have to calculate exposure at default (EAD) on a particular trade, we seldom have to compute it analytically (e.g. as shown here). More often we just take the current MtM of the trade and add the so-called add-on. … Continue reading
