TIW Market Reports provide market risk perspectives on credit derivatives traded globally, by utilizing position data sourced from DTCC’s Trade Information Warehouse (TIW). TIW is a centralized infrastructure for reporting and asset servicing on approximately 98% of all credit derivative transactions outstanding worldwide.


DTCC's Trade Information Warehouse (TIW) is a robust infrastructure that provides market participants across the globe with a wide range of automated operational capabilities. TIW’s database holds the most current contract record for both cleared and bilateral CDS positions held by all major derivatives dealers and more than 2,500 buy-side firms and other market participants around the world.

TIW Market Reports leverage TIW position-data records to deliver enriched data sets to subscribers. The reports are anonymized and aggregated across multiple fields to ensure client confidentiality.

DTCC Data Services offers the following TIW Market Reports to subscribers:

  • The TIW Weekly Stock and Volume Reports deliver detail on global credit default swap (CDS) contract activity. Historical data (older than six months) is also available, as a separate report.
  • The TIW Index and Index Options Activity Report delivers a complete list of credit default swap (CDS) index and index option positions. This report enables subscribers to view and analyze the liquidity build-up on all index and index options across the different expiry dates and conduct detailed trend analysis.

In addition, complimentary weekly stock and volume reports are available to non-subscribers after a 4-week embargo.
