    The General Market RiskG requirement for each currency must be calculated as the sum of the following:

    (a) 10% of the matched weighted positions in each maturity band;
    (b) 40% of the matched weighted position in zone A;
    (c) 30% of the matched weighted position in zones B and C;
    (d) 40% of the matched weighted position between zones A and B, and between zones B and C;
    (e) 100% of the matched weighted position between zones A and C; and
    (f) 100% of the residual unmatched weighted positions.
