London-based MMS International, a provider of real-time financial commentary and analysis, has launched a new credit and derivatives information service.
The Credit & Derivatives Insight (CDI) service spans some 200+ pages covering the European, American and Asian credit and derivatives markets.
The service delivers real-time commentary and analysis on the performance, sentiment and dynamics of both credit and derivative markets, and offers actionable trading opportunities and dynamic hedging strategies. In addition CDI supplies information about rumoured issuance through to official mandates, first pricing, reception, secondary trading, rating changes, relative value/cash switch ideas and CDS basis reports.
For derivatives traders, CDI provides volatility and swaption analysis as well as detailed flow commentary and independent fundamental analysis of all major interest rate swap markets.
MMS International also supplies fixed income and foreign exchange commentary and analysis. Mickey Arora, chief executive officer of MMS Group, says the company has been working towards launching the service since acquiring MMS from Standard & Poor's last year.
He adds that the service opens up a whole new market for the firm, which will continue to develop CDI.
CDI is available via market data distribution vendors such as Bloomberg, Reuters and MoneyLine Telerate, as well over MMS' own desktop Internet service.
