The cost of insuring against a possible default by Deutsche Bank on its debt has soared in recent days. Deutsche’s five-year credit default swaps (CDS) skyrocketed to 203 basis points Thursday, according to data from S&P Market Intelligence.


That’s their highest level since early 2019. The swaps rose again Friday to trade at 208 basis points at midday ET.
