Greek Banks Slump, Spanish Bonds Dump, Juncker 'Fist Pump'

Tyler Durden's picture

Despite the protestation from Juncker that all-is-well and that the Troika report is positive, Europe is not happy. Bonds and stocks across most of the region's continue to weaken. The sacrosanct 2Y Spanish bond yield has leaked back to one-month highs, 10Y Spanish bond spreads are holding above 450bps (as the yield presses back towards 6%), Greek stocks broadly have given back almost 40% of their recent much-aggrandized dead-cat-bounce (remember our Eastman Kodak analogy), as Greek banking stocks are hammered on the day as recaps (as expected) are much worse than it seems hope-filled investors expected... EURUSD is sliding back towards its swap-spread implied reality. Europe's macro data is breaking lower and while some note US' decoupling, we reiterate (below) this is a lag, not a decoupling.

Greek bank stocks slumping once again...

 

And Sovereign bond spreads are bleeding wider...

 

As the EURUSD slides lower towards its swap-spread-implied fair value...

 

and the reality that nothingt decouples, it is a lead-lag relationship...
