DTCC To Provide CDS Data From Trade Information Warehouse

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) will begin to publish aggregate market data from its Trade Information Warehouse (Warehouse), the worldwide central trade registry it maintains on credit derivatives. Starting Tuesday, November 4, and continuing weekly, DTCC will post on its website www.dtcc.com/derivserv the outstanding gross and net notional values (“stock” value) of credit default swap (CDS) contracts registered in the Warehouse for the top 1,000 underlying single-name reference entities and all indices, as well as certain aggregates of this data on a gross notional basis only. The data is intended to address market concerns about transparency.

The data will be shown in two sections. Section 1 will show the outstanding notional values at a given point in time (the end of each week). Section 2 will show data relating to the weekly confirmed trade volume, or “turnover,” with respect to the same underlying reference entities and indices, as well as similar aggregations of such data. Section 2 data will be published beginning the week after the initial publication of outstanding notional values. The Trade Information Warehouse is a service offering of DTCC Deriv/SERV LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DTCC, and is the market’s first and only central registry and automated trade database, supporting the post-trade processing of over-the-counter derivatives contracts over their lifecycles, from confirmation through to final settlement.
