USD Swaps (Libor)

USD IRS single-sided gross notional in usd millions
  • 2022Q1 with $25.2 trillion compared to $25.9 trillion in 2021Q1

    1. Not so easy to do, as charts automatically assign colors based on size and woudl be tricky to assign specific colors to each CCP and for these to work nicley in all circumstances. I guess in a white paper with more time, we would do this.
