The Economy In Pictures: We've Seen This All Before

$7 Trillion In Bonds Now Have Negative Yields

Just ten days ago, in the aftermath of the BOJ's -0.1% NIRP announcement, we reported that after one year of NIRP had pushed the total number of government bonds with negative yields to a staggering $3 trillion, that number nearly doubled overnight to $5.5 trillion. Overnight in a historic event, the latest consequence of the BOJ losing control, the yield on Japan's 10Y JGB dropped below zero for the first time, in the process joining Switzerland as the only other country (for now) with a NIRPing benchmark 10Y treasury.

This has dragged WTI back below $30 once again and where oil goes, stocks go...

European Sovereign Risk Soars As Bank Contagion Spreads

The ECB's "whatever it takes" ponzi strategy of keeping the dream alive in Europe's financial system has finally been caught as rapid collapse in the banking system is contagiously spreading to peripheral sovereigns once again. Portugal risk spreads are up 120bps in the last 3 weeks and Spain and Italy are soaring over 35 and 50bps respectively as the almost self-dealing nature of banks buying "risk-free" EU bonds and repoing for cash via The ECB comes home to roost...

Deutsche Bank Selling Resumes After CEO Assures Employees Bank Is "Absolutely Rock Solid"

"You can tell them that Deutsche Bank remains absolutely rock-solid, given our strong capital and risk position. On Monday, we took advantage of this strength to reassure the market of our capacity and commitment to pay coupons to investors who hold our Additional Tier 1 capital.
