Emerging market CDS volume rose 46 pct in 2014 – EMTA

NEW YORK, Feb 5 (Reuters) – Emerging market credit default
swaps trading volume rose 46 percent in 2014 versus the prior
year, driven in large measure by the economic and political
ructions related to energy in both Russia and Brazil, according
to a survey released on Thursday.

EMTA, the emerging markets debt trading and investment
industry trade association, said volumes for CDS totaled $1.56
trillion last year versus $1.064 trillion in 2013.

Dollar mixed on GDP data, January marks greenback record run

NEW YORK, Jan 30 (Reuters) – The dollar traded mixed on
Friday after weaker-than-expected headline U.S. fourth-quarter
gross domestic product data, which included the fastest pace of
consumer spending since 2006 and left intact market expectations
of long-term greenback gains.

U.S. economic activity in the fourth quarter rose 2.6
percent, below economists’ consensus forecast of 3 percent and
nearly half of the third quarter’s 5 percent rate.

Swiss franc falls on intervention speculation as euro rises

NEW YORK, Jan 29 (Reuters) – The Swiss franc dominated trade
on major currency markets again on Thursday, weakening against
both the euro and U.S. dollar on renewed speculation of
intervention by the Swiss National Bank, while commodity-based
currencies fell against the greenback.

The euro gained broadly, even in the face of Greek political
ructions with the European Union, although the dominant theme of
U.S. dollar strength remains in tact.
