The article reports on the electronic trading of credit derivatives. The transparency in trading was brought about by the National Association of Securities Dealers' electronic bond tracking system, which reports a bond's last trading price. This made electronic bond trading more appealing for investors. The two of the largest customer-to-dealer platforms offering electronic trading of credit swap indexes are MarketAxess with its CDS index training and Thomson TradeWeb.
