On ALM 6.1.1 it appears that the FE 485 (Realized Currency Gain/Loss (Interest - Net)) generated results are incorrect. Used as currency gain/loss method "Temporal" and tried to use the following validation method FE 485 = Interest Cash Flow x ((1/Current Exchange Rate)-(1/Original Exchange Rate)) (Formula taken from the Cash Flow Engine Guide, page 5-47, Accounting for Exchange Rate Fluctuations).
Incorrect FE 485 results or incorrect formula documented.
Expect generated FE 485 = Interest Cash Flow x ((1/Current Exchange Rate)-(1/Original Exchange Rate)) as documented in the Formula taken from the Cash Flow Engine Guide, page 5-47, Accounting for Exchange Rate Fluctuations/
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Load Exchange Rates
2. Load Instrument Records
3. Choose Temporal for Currency Gain/Loss Basis in Product Characteristics
4. Setup and run ALM Process
