    Agreement not to move this issue to the XAPWG.
    We looked in detail at the proposal and we think most of the proposed changes are already covered or are not required from a business perspective.
    • It doesn’t make sense for a Forward Rate Agreement to support a Spread.
    • Usually FRAs are six or nine month contracts so there is no need to specify the termination date as an unadjusted date.
    • The group didn’t see a need to have Non Deliverable Settlement in FRAs.
    There are two outstanding actions triggered from the proposal:
    • Make fra/calculationPeriodNumberOfDays optional – the group never understood why this element was required originally.
    • Check with Guy Gurden whether Markit sees any Early Termination Clause in FRAs.
