The article highlights the corporate trading activities of New York-based international bond-trading platform operator MarketAxess Holdings in the third quarter of 2007. It states that the slowdown of the credit market has resulted to a 32 percent decline in the company's corporate trading volume and growth in its other trading categories such as credit default swap (CDS). According to chief executive officer (CEO) Richard McVey, the credit crunch was caused by the strong illiquidity in the corporate bond market and the shift in the client mix.
