Remarks

Each symbol is assigned an asset class. An asset class can be equities, bonds, futures, option, etc. These assigned classes are largely tradeable with the exception of InterestRate. Arguably, an index is also not tradeable, however, for purposes of simulation, we have includes the Index asset class in the tradeable list of asset classes.
