Every European stock index closed red today - that is something we have not seen in a few weeks. The drops were not dramatic - and in fact IBEX rallied from open to close after an ugly start to the day. Spanish and Portuguese bond markets sold off notably (in the front- and back-ends of the curve) and given its place as fulcrum security we suspect the slight underperformance in European credit markets relative to stocks indicates the Draghi-induced reflex buying is starting to fade. Swiss 2Y was stable; European VIX rose modestly; and EURUSD which saw some violent swings into the US day-session open is ending its day fractionally lower. All-in-all, given recent strength and momentum, sovereigns have definitely stalled and equities will need a catalyst now (Spanish bailout?).

European Sovereign bond spreads...


and EURUSD...


Question is - are Spanish bond spreads right this time? or IBEX - like last time?

Japan, you're behind the times.  Our HFT algos have been cheating humans for years now.

Shows what a f*cked up market this is. The markets need a catalyst....the fourth largest Eurozone country applying for a bailout.


Christ, if the third largest and the second largest need bailouts down the line, this market is going to take off!!

FB is red, Apples are green - nothing to worry about.

And the EURUSD-behaviour could be explained with the WSJ naming the Euro as a sound currency.
