CDS Sector Curves

Base trades on objective daily CDS sector curves data

IHS Markit delivers daily CDS sector curves reports. We calculate these curves with spreads from our end-of-day CDS single name composite pricing data, which is based on contributor submissions that have undergone a rigorous cleaning process. The sector curves are calculated for average ratings from Moody’s, Fitch and S&P, ranging from AAA to CCC and are further broken down into the different sectors associated with these ratings.
