Aggregate Credit Market and Credit Fundamental Review
IG markets are currently fairly valued. However, XO and HY markets appear mispriced in opposite directions. XO CDS appears to be overstating credit risk, with CDS levels not confirmed by iCDS. On the other hand, tight HY CDS spreads have not been confirmed by HY iCDS, signaling HY credit risk is being understated by the credit markets.
