European Bloodbath Intensifies As Spanish Bond Yield Hits All Time Highs, EURUSD On Verge Of Going Bidless
As we speculated two weeks ago, the key word that will be regurgitated by all pundits through the end of the year is "contagion". Sure enough, the bond vigilantes who are now fully awake and stretching have brought a mauling to Spanish bonds, where 10 Year yields are now at lifetime highs. The chart below shows what will happen to US bond prices sooner or later. Should the 10 Year experience such a move in a comparable time frame, the Federal Reserve's $56.3 billion in total capital will be exhausted about 4 times over, and Ben Bernanke will be presiding over an insolvent central bank, begging for intelligent life from Proxima Centauri to have departed about 4.27 years ago in direction earth, bringing with it an extra $1 quadrillion in Terra backstop capital.
