10Y Bund Yield Drops 5 Standard Deviations, Most Ever

Tyler Durden's picture

As EFSF spreads widen and Greek CDS-Cash basis implodes, the flight to safety bid in Bunds is incredible. The largest single-day move in Bund yields ever, at over 5 standard deviations, is very noteworthy and the last hour or so has seen Bunds dislocated (lower in yield) from French debt also as OATs move to record 123bps (+15bps today). Bunds also outperforming TSYs by 9bps today (so far) and interestingly, given the Bund bid, German CDS is popping 13bps to 97.5bps (which seems like a cheap bet on Euro break-up now or potential technicals from basis unwinds).
