Commodity Return Leg

From Open Risk Manual


Commodity Return Leg. Return on the value of an underlying commodity.

The cash flows from a commodity may be negative as you have a cost from holding the commodity but there are no interim cash flows, so it equates to a negative interest rate. So a commodity swap is like a TRS in that it is based the return on the increase in value.
