Where can you track thoseMarkIt indices - with some historical data if available ?
What's the update now with the Fasb 157 changes? Any upticks?
I just checked. All of them, even the BBB are off the lows. Maybe all this inflation is starting to catch hold.
You can access the Markit CDS data on Bloomberg Pro. I assume all of the Markit data is available, but haven't looked.
Well they tried to bounce. They hit 29, or 5 pts off the lows.
now they are fading back at 27.
Not much of showing after the huge rally in the equity market overall.
I guess the market was telling us the PPIP was dead on arrival all along.
Don't think so. Blp uses CMA data (or msg1, if you got it). I got a blp terminal and a subscription to markit. As far as I know (I last checked about a six months ago), there's no way to enable markit data on blp even if you have entitlement to both.
If that changed since, let me know.
And more new lows. Coming up on 2 yr anniversary.
I bet the same banks marking to myth are looking at the ABX to give their hedge fund prime broker customers, margin calls
