    Is it possible to trade credit default swaps on sovereign debt using Interactive Brokers ?

    For instance if I put in the symbol GGGB10YR:IND (for Greek debt), there is no such symbol.
    Which is the interactive brokers symbol ?
    Or can you only trade them with Goldman Sachs ?
  2. Hahaha, yeah, you can only trade them with the Squid...

    No, you can't trade sov CDS on IB. It's an OTC derivative. You can try the CME Sovy futures, but there's no liquidity.
