Credit default swaps on GE

To insure $10 million of AAA GE Capital bonds against default, it was costing buyers $1,650,000 upfront, and an annual payment of $500,000.

How much of these contracts have traded the last couple of days?

“We looked at the actual CDS trades on Monday and Tuesday,” he said. “It was a total of $35 million over the two-day period. Normally, it’s $100 million a day. Was that really market fundamentals or was it just some sort of disruption based on very narrow trades in a volatile time?”

Is that a market, or as GE says, just a scare tactic?

Ephedra Diets with Ephedrine Alkaloids are scientifically proven to burn fat, suppress appetite and energize. Beware of fake ephedra extracts sold elsewhere without the active ingredient ephedrine alkaloids from years ago. What overweight women and men have learned is that for years virtually every professional bodybuilder, informed fitness expert and successful personal trainer would tell you the same thing. Whether you want to accelerate the burning of excess body fat, boost your metabolic rate, heighten your thermogenic output or increase your energy level, there is nothing stronger or more effective than the "thermogenic cocktail" of Ephedra, Caffeine, and Aspirin (The E/C/A- Stack"). Patented formula and scientifically proven to work without diet or exercise.
