The internet and social networking tools such as Twitter are excellent sources for CDS and other derivative information, however, none of this data has been organized in a meaningful way for users until now. Twitter alone has 100's if not 1000's of CDS prices available at any given time but it is probably more than any one person can manage. In response, CreditLime has created a CDS price database and opened it up to the community. We have made it extremely fast and simple to submit credit default swap prices from a variety of sources to the public database for various types of users. It takes less than 15 seconds to fill in the required information (price and date) for companies already in the database. Once submitted, these prices will be available for the benefit of the larger community of users including yourself to search through and lookup. Users that prefer sending traditional emails can still continue to email us.

Example 1: Submit a credit default swap price from Twitter

You may be going through your tweets and come across a CDS price you would like to submit.

Example 2: Submit a credit default swap price from a website

You may be reading through your daily news on companies you have invested in and hear about a CDS price you would like to submit.

Example 3: Submit a credit default swap price from a Bloomberg message

You may be a professional swap trader or investor and going through your daily bloomberg messages and want to submit a broker-dealer's quote.

Note: CreditLime accepts actual trade prices and mid-point 5-year CDS prices (quotes) by default (if and when available...so in this case the best price/quote to input would be '[(530+540)/2]'= 535). However, if only a bid-side or ask-side quote is available, such one-sided market prices or quotes can also be entered instead.
To submit CDS prices of different tenors such as the 415/423 1-year CDS price quote in the above example or other more detailed or specific questions please contact CreditLime and we will guide you through that process.



Example 4: Submit a credit default swap price from a TV show

You may be watching a TV station like CNBC and see a CDS price update that you would like to submit.
