Class InflationEndMonthRateComputation

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    RateComputation, Serializable, org.joda.beans.Bean, org.joda.beans.ImmutableBean

    public final class InflationEndMonthRateComputation
    extends Object
    implements RateComputation, org.joda.beans.ImmutableBean, Serializable
    Defines the computation of inflation figures from a price index where the start index value is known.

    A typical application of this rate computation is payments of a capital indexed bond, where the reference start month is start month of the bond rather than start month of the payment period.

    A price index is typically published monthly and has a delay before publication. The rate observed by this instance will be based on the start index value and the observation relative to the end month.

      • getIndex

        public PriceIndex getIndex()
        Gets the Price index.
        the Price index
      • collectIndices

        public void collectIndices​(ImmutableSet.Builder<Index> builder)
        Description copied from interface: RateComputation
        Collects all the indices referred to by this computation.

        A computation will typically refer to one index, such as 'GBP-LIBOR-3M'. Each index that is referred to must be added to the specified builder.

        Specified by:
        collectIndices in interface RateComputation
        builder - the builder to use
      • getStartIndexValue

        public double getStartIndexValue()
        Gets the start index value.

        The published index value of the start month.

      • getEndObservation

        public PriceIndexObservation getEndObservation()
        Gets the observation at the end.

        The inflation rate is the ratio between the start index value and end observation. The end month is typically three months before the end of the period.
