Emerging markets CDS trading falls 35 percent in Q2 -EMTA

Aug 18 (Reuters) - Investors largely pulled back bearish insurance bets on emerging markets trades in the second quarter, as trading of credit default swaps fell 35 percent in the second quarter from the first quarter, a study released Friday showed.

Emerging market CDS fell to $261 billion in the April through June period, according to a survey from EMTA, the emerging markets trading association. That’s down 35 percent from the first quarter’s $404 billion in reported transactions and 9 percent lower than what level of CDS trading seen in the second quarter of 2016.
