Abstract: We employ a Levy process subject to only negative jumps to describe the motion of asset values. This specification permits fast computation of first passage probabilities. As a result we are able to calibrate all CDS
curves for the 125 iTraxx underliers weekly and develop a time series for the implied parameter values. A variety of models are investigated for the process: gamma, inverse Gaussian and the one sided CGMY, here referred to as CMY.
