Bahrain CDS up almost 40 bps to 231.5 on Dubai-CMA

LONDON, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Bahrain’s five-year credit default swapsjumped 37 basis points to 231.5 bps on Thursday as regional sovereigns suffered the fallout from Dubai’s move to restructure the debt of a major conglomerate, CDS monitor CMA said.

Dubai CDS are being quoted as high as 500-550 bps some traders said, while the cost of insuring Qatari and Abu Dhabi debt has also surged in the wake of the news.
