template Instrument

This template models a currency swap. It pays a fix vs fix rate (in different currencies) at the end of every payment period. The principal in the foreign currency is calculated using an fx rate and the principal amount in the base currency. The principal is not exchanged. For example: USD 1000k principal, fx rate 1.10 -> EUR 1100k principal 3% fix rate on USD 1000k vs 2% fix rate on EUR 1100k
