Financial information services firm Markit has postponed the rolls of the Markit CDX North America Investment Grade, Markit CDX North America Investment Grade High Volatility, Markit CDX North America Crossover, Markit CDX Emerging Markets and Markit CDX Emerging Markets Diversified indices.
This decision was taken after Markit CDX index dealers voted to postpone the rolls due to market conditions and requests from their clients. The indices will roll into new versions on October 2 instead of on September 29 as previously announced. The indices will have an annex date of October 2 and an effective date of September 21.
As previously scheduled, the Markit MCDX index will roll into its eleventh series on October 3 and the Markit CDX North America High Yield index will roll into its eleventh series on October 6.
