Spanish 10Y Bond Yield Breaches 6% - Highest In 3 Weeks As Nothing Still Fixed

Tyler Durden's picture

The yield on 10Y Spanish bonds just broke back above 6% for the first time in three weeks as the spread to Bunds also broke above 450bps. Now up over 33bps this week (along with Italy +20bps and Portugal +36bps), it seems the market is waking to the idea that words are simply not as good as actions and even actions are irrelevant if they simply kick the can. The front-end of the Italian and Spanish curves are underperforming today (Italy 2Y +12bps and Spain +22bps) as the OMT-front-running exuberance a-la-LTRO is being unwound. It seems European credit markets were indeed on to something yesterday as they underperformed. Spanish and Italian equity markets are down around 3% with France off more than 2% and credit spreads widening notably further in financials and corporates - as EURUSD slides to 1.2850.
