The ice get thinner, but the skater's confidence grows by 100+ point daily.
Anyone buying those bonds will get what they deserve
a G5 and lots and lots of money
Government obliges some businessmen to accept 1 year bonds.For example,if a state hospital owes to a pharmaceutical company 100M,it pays a part in cash and the rest in bonds.
don't worry, machines are in full control, waiting that eurex exchange resume trading
It appears that political carrier of Shmulek in Slovakia is over, the new facility will be approved , as I predicted.
But what does this have to do with Greece?
Coming from you I expect it's sarcasm, still, I'll swallow the bait. ;-)
The Euro-Mini-Bazooka the Slowaks are going to vote on is needed for the recapitalization of all EuroZone Banks that so foolishly hold Greek Bonds.
Nought from the Greeks towards me hath sped well.So now I find that ancient proverb true,Foes' gifts are no gifts: profit bring they none.
Why such a huge difference between 6m and 1 yr? 4.86% vs 159 %
I understand it's called a "steep curve" - Chairman Bernanke is busy flattening it for the UST.
From this difference you can imply the market's expectation in when Greece is going to default. Ready for it?
If we get one more lift towards 145, i'm going short, lol.
So if Greece defaults in 7 months, which has the higher yield? The one year or 6 month bond?
Think Germany and France knew Greece will miss their target and is currently trying to buy more time but it seems like they really don't have any control over this. They can't even keep the inspectors quiet until end of October. This is bad because the finance minister from Greece said they are getting a better deal after the inspection and will implement new plans by end of the month.
USA treasuries Bitchez
Germany & France know that Greece is not going to change any substance - the charade must go on until all idiot-banks are prepared for the default.
By the way, US smart money is already leaving some of the UST for stocks.
To me it doesn't make sense. It would imply that there is 0% chance of default within 6 months and 100% chance of default after 6 months.
in the article above it's explained quite clearly: "...Greece has enough cash reserves to last to the end of the year and possibly the start of next year, in part due..."
T-Bills are treated differently under default, so I believe there is barely any risk there at all, if a default occurs the T-Bills will be paid back in full.
I don't understand how we are still muddling through on Greece. All this austerity, and all the economic restructuring are not moving the country in the right direction. Do the lenders seriously think that one more round of tax hikes and public sector layoffs will have the economy spurt in the right direction? You can only push things so far. At some point the debt has to be restructured. Everyone acknowledges the lenders are not going to get paid, and yet no one talks about how to reduce the debt to a level the country can endure.
They are trying to gain as much time as possible to prepare themselves to what is going to happen and everyone should do the same.
Get ready, those who are not prepared will suffer greatly.
50% Gold, 50% Cash (USD) and you will sleep well knowing all outcomes will be good for you.
But, but, but RoboTarder sez I'm supposed to put all my money into flash-in-the-pan stocks like LULU and I'll be a zillionaire! Plus I won't have to worry about where to store all that metal and cash.
Real value is frightening & icky. I'm stickin' with The Tarder!
Pooh, who needs stocks? I'm getting 159% in safe-as-houses Gubbermint bonds!
Troika's "strict conditionality" will once again be pissed on by the Greeks. They will get their 8 billion. Venizelos aka Jabba the Hut is laughing out loud to the eurofanatic fools who keep pouring hundreads of billions to the black hole. Banks once again will smirk behind the curtain coz the tax payers will make their mistakes whole. This undemocratic political dream these eurofanatics are trying to preserve deserves to collapse sooner than later.
but then why are 26w greek bills yielding 4.86% ?? :-/
T-bills are treated differently under default, the capital in those is senior
Is that 159% or 951%?
It all gets so confusing.....;-)
From the above Bloomberg article:
"Greece has enough cash reserves to last to the end of the year and possibly the start of next year, in part due to revenue from extraordinary levies, the newspaper said."
But...but...but, on October 4, Bloomberg wrote this:
"Greece Has Cash to Meet Needs Until Mid-November, Finance Minister Says"
So which is it? Is it because of the special levy's? I'm skeptical.
I'm going to give those 1 year bonds as Christmas gifts. People will really be impressed with that 159% return!
are you sure about the seniority of bills over bonds?
also, this difference is far too big to only reflect the spread between two tranches in the liability structure....
as most people say those days..."there has to be a reason"...
I mean I have the choice today between paying 4.86% in primary for greek bills and buying a
GGB 5 ¼ 05/18/12 for 50% of par...
Really struggling to get that spread
Wait.......even if Europe recapitalizes their banks.......won't the deriatives market burst when Greek defaults? We don't know who has what.......
