  • Publication number: 20080290181
    Abstract: A method for calculating a foreign exchange index including the steps of: retrieving currency exchange rates corresponding to a plurality of currencies; adjusting long positions and short positions in the plurality of currencies based on an optimization algorithm; and generating the index based on the results of the adjusting step. The foreign exchange index may be calculated on a periodic basis using an optimization model implemented via a computer program, and may be used as a benchmark for a variety of financial products.

  • Publication number: 20020087570
    Abstract: A programming tool and a method of operating the programming tool models an object that moves through time using an object oriented data model. The data model includes a data parameter and a time parameter. An instance of the object oriented data model has a data value associated with the data parameter and a time value associated with the time parameter. The data value is associated with the instance of the item at the time value. A chain of instances of the object oriented data model represents the object as the object moves and changes through time. The programming tool includes a plurality of methods adapted to operate on the chain of instances of the object oriented data model.
