BlueMountain is one of the hedge fund founders of CMDX, the joint venture between the CME Group and Citadel Investment Group to clear credit default swaps. The venture has been in the works for almost a year but has not yet begun clearing the swaps. 
BlueMountain had earlier bought pieces of General Motors Corp.’s $4.5 billion credit line and purchased derivatives linked to GM’s unsecured debt that would pay out if the company defaults, according to a letter from BlueMountain to shareholders. (GM filed for bankruptcy protection on June 1, 2009.)
