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...

Obama is probably somehow responsible for this one too. Boy, some of you guys are sore loosers. Sometime I think you almost deserved Nixon and Bush. Luckilly, the majority voted against the corporate pupetts and religious wacos.

Looser than your girl? Impossible!

Cute. You caught a spelling mistake. Good for you!

Juncker works for Sesame Workshop?

"Sometime"... "pupetts"... "wacos".  That's three more "spelling" mistakes, all in one sentence.  Your grammar is certainly looser than mine.  I wonder who really deserves Bush and Nixon.

Looky kids, it's a Kool-Aid drinker!

Or is it a troll?

Poe's Law strikes again.

Would expect ECB to loosen collateral requirements for Greece in a moment and the Bundestag to approve Greek Bailout 3.0 (?) in due order, because "Greece is too big."  The will to do good in the EZ has not gone away over night.  It will only intensify as we approach EZ elections, unless of course the Troika is the bad cop to Germany's good cop.

Do you mean like the Global Warming and Organic Food Wacos of the Religious Left?

This sad situation, sometimes it seems funny. We all know (and European authorities know better than us) that the economic situation in Europe is disastrous. That solution will bring many "adjustments", hardships and difficulties. Societies "rich" becoming poor. We all know that Europe is a continent that needs a "rescue" total. However, the authorities look to one side, and "kick" the problem as if to gain time for a magician to come and solve everything. They look like children who do not want their mom finds out they did something wrong.

Too many people think that there is time for one more drink at the bar of the Titanic before she sinks and as a result we have witnessed positive movements in bond and stock prices that have been largely inexplicable.

The old saying that greed drives things up whilst fear feeds them on the way down, is getting closer to fruition. The seeming normality of everyday life is wafer thin and largely due to ignorance on behalf of the masses that still have a job.

There's always time for one more...but as they say the important part is location location location.

Yep. I think it is now time to make sure you are in a chair, or lifeboat as the case may be. Even though the music is still playing, the water may be getting very close to flooding the room that the stereo system is in.

People have been having one more drink at the bar since the 1970's, in fact the bar has been drunk dry and people have became alcoholics waiting for it to sink...havent you heard? they even set up AA meetings in the engine room. They have had guys on rotating 24 hr shift patterns rotating fucking deckchairs for 40 years and the fiddle player in the band has frostbite on his cock, the women and children are now grandmothers and fathers….sick of it, someone just sink the boat already.

The signals increasingly point in the direction of Greece getting more money.

Greeks are the most profoundly expert defaulters in the world.  They have defaulted as a nation on debt about 8 times in the past 150 years.  They are going to suck in more Euros from the EU and promise more austerity and it will never happen.  

The EU appears to be trapped.  They cannot face their voters and tell them the loans they already made are going to default.  So they will keep giving Greece money with which to service those loans.

The overall lesson?  Do not presume . . . EVER . . . that you have reached the end of the road down which the can is kicked.  Money is an invention of mankind that did not exist in mankind's earliest days.  It can be redefined and massaged to be whatever people want it to be.

Only oil ends this.  Watch nothing else, and I don't mean its "price".  Greece burns 400,000 barrels per day to feed the populace and buys every drop of it because they have essentially none domesticaly.

Of course they are gonna fund Greece.

They are so fucking afraid the house of cards will collapse they will piss and moan, but in the end they reach down into their pockets and money appears.

When France goes it will be a different story.

Yep, it's all going to hell in a handcart over here in Europe. It's now so cold economically that all my clothes fell off on my blog :-)  Love, Kate

The coverage is a bit lopsided, leans more to the right.

ECB to the Greek rescue - surprise, surprise. The Greeks can load up 3 billion to pay off their debts this Friday. No default, no collapse. Saved in the last second, as ever.

“Europe has created a monster out of the Greek debt problem…Debt forgiveness for Greece- which is absolutely necessary, is now much, much more complicated”

“Greece owes a lot of money, this is not a small amount.  We’re talking about hundreds of billions of euros.”

“After two and a half years of so-called debt management and rescue, what’s happened is that the total volume of debt has actually increased and the composition has changed against Greece” 

“Greek debt used to be about 300 billion euros, it was in Greek bonds and could’ve been written off under Greek law…Now, [however] it’s multilateral debt  — debt owed to official lenders. It’s a matter of public policy in Europe about who’s going to take the losses.”
