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

    (a) 5% of the matched weighted positions in each time 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 of the General Market Risk requirement calculation under the Duration Method is as follows:

      Zone Modified Duration Individual Net Positions Assumed move in Modified Duration Weighted Individual Net Positions By Timeband By Zone Between Zones
