Egypt debt insurance costs fall sharply-Markit
LONDON, July 4
LONDON, July 4 (Reuters) - The cost of insuring Egypt's debt fell sharply in the five-year credit default swap market on Thursday after the country's army overthrew president Mohamed Mursi and installed the head of the constitutional court as interim head of state.
Egypt's five-year CDS fell 80 basis points to 816 bps, according to Markit, after hitting record highs above 900 bps earlier this week.
