CHANGE IN ROLL DATES FOR MARKIT CDX/LCDX SERIES 10 INDICES
Based on the feedback received from dealers, the roll dates for CDX and LCDX for the forthcoming roll are going to be pushed back slightly. The main reasoning behind that is the current roll date for the IG and EM suite of indices - 20th March - is an early close, and the next day is Good Friday - a day the markets are closed.
The dealers have voted to also preserve the week delay between the IG and HY roll, and between the HY and LCDX roll dates.
IG now rolls on the 25th March for this year, HY on the 1st April and LCDX on the 8th April. Markit will adjust the timing of the process so we start polling at the same time relative to the roll date.
Please note that the effective dates of the new series of indices will remain as is - 21st March for IG/EM, 28th March for HY and 4th April for LCDX.
