To guage FTP, banks can first establish a FTP curve. A general curve is calculated by plotting the relationship between yield to maturity and time to maturity, then adjusted to reflect the lending needs of each location. A rate is then assigned to each of the transactions that occur at the bank. For example, a five-year bond would have a different rate than a 10-year bond. Finally, all of the rates are entered into the FTP system.
