Nonlinearities in CDS-Bond Basis

Emerging Markets Finance and Trade, 2013, vol. 49, issue 3, 6-19
Theoretically, the risk premium captured by credit default swap (CDS) and bond yield spreads should be equal. However, data reveals a significant difference between the two spreads. The authors explore the presence of mean-reverting behavior in this difference (CDS-bond basis) in selected emerging markets, employing alternative threshold models (TAR, TAR-GARCH, and ESTAR). Their results indicate a positive relationship between the speed of adjustment and the trading frequency of sovereign CDSs and bonds.
