Product Summary

Markit Pricing Data leverages a wide number of contributors to provide high quality data that delivers in-depth insight into the CDS marketplace.

Markit Pricing Data delivers information on the relationship between a CDS price and other market variables.

It helps customers understand how sensitive a particular CDS spread level is to changes in interest rates, credit quality, recover assumptions and other factors that affect CDS pricing. To gauge the sensitivity of CDS prices to market conditions, investors can “shock” their positions by calculating standard metrics.

Our CDS sensitivities report provides the following metrics:

  • Credit DV01

    The difference between the current market value and a value derived by shifting the credit curve up by one basis point

  • IR DV01

    The difference between the current market value and a value derived by shifting the interest rate curve up by one basis point

  • Implied DP

    Cumulative default probability that represents the probability of a credit event up to a given tenor

  • REC 01

    The difference between the current market value and a value derived by shifting the recovery assumption up by 1%

  • Risky PV01

    The sum of the discount factors weighted by the probabilities of survival and payment periods

  • Jump-to-Default

    The cash amount lost or gained due to an instantaneous credit event using the assumed recovery

  • Default-to-Zero

    The cash settlement amount on a generic notional of 10 million, assuming an instantaneous credit event with zero recovery
