Swap rate

Definition 1

The difference, whether positive or negative, between the forward 

Exchange

 rate and the 

Spot rate

 for a given 

Currency

, usually expressed in 

Point

.

Definition 2

In the case of an 

Interest rate swap

, the market 

Interest

 rate 

Paid

 by the 

Party

 responsible for the fixed payments. In general, a well-defined 

Market rate

 exists for this payment, and when a 

Swap

 is initiated, the 

Fixed rate

 paid is usually quite 

Close

 to the 

Market

 swap rate. However, as the 

Swap

 matures the 

Fixed rate

 paid on the 

Swap

 stays constant, while the 

Swap rate

 might change, and these two rates can diverge.
