Eu Junk Bonds, What Is Being Quoted?


Recommended Posts

Technical question. We're being bombarded with almost hourly updates of Irish/Spainish/Greek debt interest rates atm but I'm a little confused as to what is really being quoted.

Is it;

1) current bond yields

2) the cost of credit insurance (CDS)

3) the spread between Irish debt and the German debt (the risk free rate)

4) the spread between insuring Irish and German debt

Sometimes the journalist pinpoints what they mean but often they don't. Is there an industry standard when quoting this sort of thing?
