I have a project and presentation due tomorrow about swap techniques, interest swap, equity swap, and other kind of swap. If you have any link direct at these information. Please post here. Any help is appreciated.

Trinity is such a tough school that they don't teach proper sentence structure?

Just saying.....

You can always start by reading up on wikipedia... The information is quite good for starters. Considering the project is due in ONE day, you'll have to work insanely hard. How long is the presentation and the project? What are you expected to cover? The simplest swap to look up would be commodity swap. Then interest swap and currency swap are a bit more complicated. Typically there is a market maker and a lot of hedging going on. Look up derivative trading online on google... Hard to tell how mathematical you want to get with this.

thanks, i am almost done. i have access to internet library and 3 books with me. I am glad that i am not totally screwed yet. Outline is done, and power point slides are also done. Only the research paper left to write, 7 pages done and 8 more to go. 10 hours is plenty of time.

P.S: and yes, wikipedia was great.
