In the previous posts we have seen how easy it is to price interest rate swaps
using R. I am honoured to announce that I have decided to put all the functions
I have described together into a package that is called…SwapPricer!
Ok, the name is not super original, but it should at least be easy to remember.
You can install it as follows:
# library(devtools) devtools::install_github("DavideMagno/SwapPricer")
The package is still unfortunately not on CRAN but it has an official hexagon.

library(SwapPricer) SwapPortfolioPricing(SwapPricer::swap.basket, lubridate::ymd(20190414), SwapPricer::df.table)

You can see that I have used two objects that are delivered with the package:
swap.basket which consists in a 5 swaps portfolio that can be referenced as
blueprint for your swap portfolio
df.table this is the discount curve downloaded from Bloomberg as at the 14th

We have tested the package using a 500 swaps portfolio and the results, in terms
of performance are very encouraging. We analyse them using the amazing profvis
