Does anyone know of a way to trade credit default swaps as a small trader?
you can't as a small trader. there is no single exchange for them.
with $10 million in spare capital you could.
Use Markit data.
Thanks I do not have that much right now but I appreciate it.......
Either do I !
Good luck with that... I believe there has only been on non-institutional trade in CDS ever - it was done after months of paper work (the guy who wanted to trade had several hundred million in liquid assets)....
MarkIt data costs about 100k+ a year
Thanks I like it!
Unfortunately I guess there are no options on Primus Guaranty and it has already come down a long way......
