The article presents information on the trading of derivative indexes. As the trading of derivatives indexes goes electronic, players in the inter dealer market believe that the next step may be to list the indexes on an exchange. Moytex has been talking to several inter dealer brokers, many of whom are now interested in following market leaders in adding electronic trading to their platform. Increased buy side interest in the credit derivatives market, particularly with regard to indexes, has resulted in increased volume and liquidity. Cognizant of the need to keep up with this volume, and to cut costs as spreads tighten, brokers worldwide have logically sought to automate index trades.
