Published in Alternative Indices

A Credit Default Swap (CDS) is a contract between two parties, a protection buyer who makes fixed periodic payments, and a protection seller, who collects the premium in exchange for making the protection buyer whole in case of default. iBoxx uses CDS to indicate that the underlying reference entities and obligations are senior unsecured bonds, issued by corporate or sovereign issuers.

This data source includes both iTraxx and CDX Indices. CDX indices are a family of tradable credit default swap (CDS) indices covering North America and emerging markets. iTraxx indices are a family of European, Asian and emerging market tradable credit default swap indices.
