    You helped me with a swap problem earlier (posting PC11892). I have another question based upon that information.
    First question answered for posting PC11892 (answer is attached)
    In the cash market, an American Bank (A) can issue either yen 1 billion worth of bonds yielding 5.3% p.a. and priced at par or $10 million worth of bonds yielding 6.5% p.a. and priced at par. At the same time, a Japanese bank (B) can either issue yen 1 billion worth of bonds yielding 5.5% p.a. and priced at par of $10 million worth of bonds yielding 6% p.a. and priced at par. Current yen dollar rates are $0.01/yen. After the swap, the American Bank prefers to make payments in Dollars, and the Japanese Bank prefers to make payments in Yen . All interest payment are annual. An intermediary has concluded a swap deal for both banks. Assume a maturity of 7 years.If a swap intermediary fee is 30 basis points (US$) and both (A) and (B) gain 20 points from the swap, what are the terms of the spread? Show all payments!

    Additional question
    A year later, interest rates decrease as follows:

    5.3% - 4.5%, 6.5% to 6.0%, 5.5% to 4.7% and 6% to 5.5%

    Which party may be induced to sell their sap and at what price??
