Swaps - long and short positions.
If "John is long a interest rate swap", what does that mean? Which position is he taking?
Also, is there a long-short position for FX swaps? Intuitively for me there shouldn't be, but I'm just paranoid I'm going to see a question like "John is long a USD:EUR swap" and not know what the positioning is.
