Our CDS Page ... New and Improved!
Managing Editor, CNBC.com
Okay, this is a little geeky. But I'm all excited about our new and improved credit default swap page.
Previously, when I gushed about the page before, the section only listed the CDS prices for the PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain). Now we've added a whole bunch more.
This will be handy for following Europe's woes ... because CDS prices are a quick and dirty way to gauge how the market views the credit worthiness of a particular country. And it's interesting to see which country has a better rating than the USA (at least at this posting).
You can check out the page here. Enjoy! And yes, there is a little CDS explainer at the bottom. If you have any suggestions, let us know via email or comments below.
