A floating vs. floating interest rate swap, is a derivative that provides a periodical exchange of a floating forward rate at a given maturity for a different floating interest rate, defined on the same or different maturity, on the same or different principal. The floating interest rates can be a short rates (Xibor) or Constant Maturity Swap (CMS) rates, and they can be subject to optional floors and caps

Contract Terms
Maturity  Represents the expiration date or maturity of the contract (Interest rate, Equity etc.) without any business date convention adjustment. 
Currency  The Currency in which the product pays. 
Valuation Side  It defines the side or the point of view of the valuation. By setting Leg A, leg (A) pays fixed rate cash flows, and receives the floating leg (B) cashflows, vice versa, by setting Leg B, the holder pays the floating leg (B) cashflows.

Effective Date  The Effective Date is the Date on which the contract takes effect: usually the date on which first payment defined in the contract takes place. 
Leg A  Floating
Notional  The notional (principal) used to calculate the payments. It can be "bullet" (enter a single element) or "amortizing" (enter as many values as the number of payments).

Floating Rate Indexing  Specifies the maturity of the floating rate. 
Payment frequency  Frequency of payments: actually we support daily, weekly, biweekly, monthly, Quarterly, SemiAnnual and Annual frequencies. 
Reset type  Reset type specifies the fixing rules for the floating rate. InAdvance means that the floating (interest) rate is calculated at the beginning of the period and paid at the end. InArrears means that the floating (interest) rate is calculated and paid at the end of the period.

Days before reset  It is the number of days to subtract to the reset dates. Usually, if not specified into the contract, the convention is to subtract two days.

Date rolling convention  Date rolling conventions are a series of rules that indicate which date to consider when a payment date or a date used to calculate accrual interest falls into a holiday according to a business day calendar. Supported conventions are:
Following: the payment date is rolled to the next business day;
Modified following: the payment date is rolled to the next business day, unless doing so would cause the payment to be in the next calendar month, in which case the payment date is rolled to the previous business day. Many institutions have monthend accounting procedures that necessitate this;
Preceding: the payment date is rolled to the previous business day;
Modified business day: the payment date is rolled to the previous business day, unless doing so would cause the payment to be in the previous calendar month, in which case the payment date is rolled to the next business day. Many institutions have monthend accounting procedures that necessitate this;
Unadjusted: paid on the actual day, even if it is a nonbusiness day.

Day count convention  Day count conventions define how many days must be considered between two coupons payments dates or from the valuation date to the next payment date (see also the difference between clean price and dirty price of a bond) to calculate the accrued interest. The conventions are :
Thirty/360: uses 30 days in a month and 360 days in a year for calculating interest payments;
Actual/365: each month is treated normally and the year is assumed to be 365 days. For example, in a period from February 1, 2005 to April 1, 2005, the Factor is considered to be 59 days divided by 365;
Actual/365: indicates the actual number of days in the period for calculating interest divided by 365. If any part of that period of calculation of interest fall in a leap year, the rate is calculated as the sum of:
 actual number of days in that part of the interest calculation period falling in a leap year divided by 366;
 actual number of days in that part of the interest calculation period falling in a nonleap year divided by 365. 
Spread  It defines the spread rate which can optionally be added to or subtracted from the floating rate.

Rate Options  Defines how the floating rate is used in the payoff by taking into account floor, cap and collar type options.Customize the coupons in order to take into account floor cap and collar type options. 
Rate Multiplier  The rate multiplier is applied to the coupon before adding the floating rate spread. 
Floor Level  Optional Floor level (or levels) at which floating coupons are subjected. If your contract have payment specific levels enter as many values as the number of payments. 
Cap Level  Optional Cap level (or levels) at which floating coupons are subjected. If your contract have payment specific levels enter as many values as the number of payments. 
Leg B  Floating
Floating Rate Indexing  Specifies the maturity of the floating rate.
