    The General Market Risk requirement for each currency must be calculated as the sum of the following:

    (a) 10% of the matched weighted positions in each maturity band;
    (b) 40% of the matched weighted position in zone A;
    (c) 30% of the matched weighted position in zones B and C;
    (d) 40% of the matched weighted position between zones A and B, and between zones B and C;
    (e) 100% of the matched weighted position between zones A and C; and
    (f) 100% of the residual unmatched weighted positions.

      A worked example under the Maturity Method of the General Market Risk requirement calculation is as follows:

      Zone Maturity Band Individual Net Positions Risk percentages Weighted Individual Net Positions By Maturity Band By Zone Between Zones
        Coupon ≥3% Coupon <3% Long Short   Long Short Matched Unmatched Matched Unmatched Matched Unmatched
      A ≤ 1 month ≤ 1 month $100 -$50 0.00% $0.00 $0.00 $0.00 $0.00

                      $55.35     $4.30    

      Total General Market Risk requirement = 10% ($55.35) + 40% ($0.00) + 30% ($0.00 + $4.50) + 40% ($1.30 + $3.95) + 100% ($4.30) + 100% ($0.00) = $13.29
