I am a trader focusing largely on the credit markets, though I do dabble often in FX and Interest Rates as well. Across the credit product/market spectrum I trade everything from credit default swaps on corporate/sovereign names to cash bonds and loans to CDO's to credit indices (CDX, iTraxx). In my commentary I will try to to flesh out and offer an "inside" perspective to the headline stories that grow out of the credit markets such as, for instance, the role of credit default swaps in the current credit crisis or the counterparty exposure to AIG. I will also talk about various risk management issues, pricing and valuation credit models, counterparty risk as well as fundamental value in credit and capital structure relative value plays between equity and credit markets.
