Detailed Description

calendar class

This class provides methods for determining whether a date is a business day or a holiday for a given market, and for incrementing/decrementing a date of a given number of business days.

The Bridge pattern is used to provide the base behavior of the calendar, namely, to determine whether a date is a business day.

A calendar should be defined for specific exchange holiday schedule or for general country holiday schedule. Legacy city holiday schedule calendars will be moved to the exchange/country convention.

Tests

the methods for adding and removing holidays are tested by inspecting the calendar before and after their invocation.

Examples: BermudanSwaption.cpp, Bonds.cpp, CallableBonds.cpp, CDS.cpp, ConvertibleBonds.cpp, DiscreteHedging.cpp, EquityOption.cpp, FittedBondCurve.cpp, FRA.cpp, Repo.cpp, and swapvaluation.cpp.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Calendar ()

The default constructor returns a calendar with a null implementation, which is therefore unusable except as a placeholder.

Member Function Documentation

std::string name () const

Returns the name of the calendar.

Warning

This method is used for output and comparison between calendars. It is not meant to be used for writing switch-on-type code.

bool isBusinessDay (const Date & d) const

Returns true iff the date is a business day for the given market.

bool isHoliday (const Date & d) const

Returns true iff the date is a holiday for the given market.

bool isWeekend (Weekday w) const

Returns true iff the weekday is part of the weekend for the given market.

bool isEndOfMonth (const Date & d) const

Returns true iff the date is last business day for the month in given market.

void addHoliday (const Date &)

Adds a date to the set of holidays for the given calendar.

void removeHoliday (const Date &)

Removes a date from the set of holidays for the given calendar.

Date adjust (const Date &, BusinessDayConvention convention = Following) const

Adjusts a non-business day to the appropriate near business day with respect to the given convention.

Examples: Bonds.cpp, CDS.cpp, ConvertibleBonds.cpp, FittedBondCurve.cpp, and swapvaluation.cpp.

Date advance (const Date &, Integer n, TimeUnit unit, BusinessDayConvention convention = Following, bool endOfMonth = false) const

Advances the given date of the given number of business days and returns the result.

Note:

The input date is not modified.

Examples: BermudanSwaption.cpp, Bonds.cpp, CallableBonds.cpp, ConvertibleBonds.cpp, FittedBondCurve.cpp, FRA.cpp, and swapvaluation.cpp.

Date advance (const Date & date, const Period & period, BusinessDayConvention convention = Following, bool endOfMonth = false) const

Advances the given date as specified by the given period and returns the result.

Note:

The input date is not modified.

BigInteger businessDaysBetween (const Date & from, const Date & to, bool includeFirst = true, bool includeLast = false) const

Calculates the number of business days between two given dates and returns the result.
