Abstract

Many financial products sensitive to daily rate changes dictate the importance of adequate modelling of short-term rates. Their intrinsic properties are investigated based on historical market data. A new short-term rate model with the non-Gaussian random driver and auto-correlation factors is introduced. Special calibration procedures for the model are presented.Short-term rate stochastic dynamics are investigated in several numerical experiments.
