ISDA's Key Trends OTC Derivatives Markets
for First Half 2019

ISDA recently published its review of OTC Derivatives Market Trends between 2019, 2018 and the previous 5 years. On the whole, US dollar-denominated trading has increased particularly in the shorter-term contracts. And there was also “a noticeable boost in the share of cleared IRD contracts, as demonstrated by higher IRD notional outstanding with central counterparties (CCPs).”

Additionally in the report, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has data showing that gross credit exposure increased, showing approximately 78% of reduced mark-to-market exposure for market participants, which is further reduced by their posted collateral.
