ISDA produces its Market Analysis to correspond with the release of the Bank for International Settlement’s (BIS) semi-annual statistical release. The BIS’s most recent release covered the period ending December 31, 2011.
Our reporting aims to integrate market data to show the impact of clearing, netting, compression and collateral on notional amounts and risk exposures in the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives markets. Counterparty credit losses from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) report are also presented.
The Market Analysis draws on information sources including LCH.Clearnet’s SwapClear, TriOptima, the DTCC Trade Information Warehouse, Markit, ICE, CME and ISDA Research. Links to data sources are at the end of this paper. ISDA welcomes suggestions from readers regarding additional improvements to the Market Analysis.
