Mark Gongloff explains the pain:

“In the credit-default swap market, spreads are wider across the board, meaning people are paying up for protection. The Markit investment-grade corporate debt index is 3 basis points wider. The index of European sovereign debt is 10 basis points wider. The index of European financials is also 10 basis points wider.”
