European Credit Refuses To Take The Blue Pill

Tyler Durden's picture





 

After an almost incessant rally off Thanksgiving Day lows, European financials are seeing a quite notable divergence in their performance over the last two days. Dispersion has risen across all of credit with financial credit spreads widening significantly as both broad stocks and specifically the European financial stocks trade sideways to higher. This is the most significant divergence between credit and equity for the financials in Europe since that rally began and was then extended via LTRO hopes. Perhaps the reality of implicit LTRO subordination as increasing amounts of collateral (backing the entire capital structure of the banks) is being priced into the much more sensitive and quick to react credit markets as stocks just can't shake the momentum extravaganza.

Like the Greeks would say: "It might be rabit, it might be cat but if you have to ask, you can't afford it"

How could equity trading desks possibly ramp up bids as they sell?  How could banks possibly manipulate their own stock price in today's highly regulated markets?  That's just crazy talk.

Since CDS contracts are soon to be proven worthless (see Greece, et al), you don't need to pay attention to the credit markets anymore.

If I had half a Qualified Investor's brain, I would be liquidating my position with any and all hedge funds. God only knows their debt exposure or how they are leveraged into it with CDS's as risk mangaement...... Remaining hedge fund clientele may not be remain qualified to be Qualified for much longer.
