US 10-year Treasury CDS widens to record 29.2 bps-CMA

LONDON, Sept 24 (Reuters) - The cost of insuring 10-year U.S. government debt against default rose to a record high on Wednesday as investors fretted over the feasibility of the government’s $700 billion plan to contain the financial crisis.

Credit default swaps on 10-year Treasury debt expanded to 29.2 basis points — its widest ever — from 26.5 basis points on Tuesday, according to CMA, a specialised data provider.

CMA said CDS on five-year widened to 22.0 basis points from 20.5 basis points. (Reporting by Emelia Sithole-Matarise)
