One PSI Chart To Rule Them All

Tyler Durden's picture

As the Greek PSI deal rears its ugly head on our screens once again with Merkel, Schaeuble, and Papademos all pulling from one angle or another (and Dallara disquietingly silent in his uselessness), BNP created a simple flowchart of the various steps and probabilities of participation rates, retroactive embedded CACs, CDS triggers, and actual debt reduction that may (or may not) occur in the next week or two. The price action in Greek CDS and Bonds strongly suggest the CDS will trigger (as we have been vehemently explaining for weeks/months now) but there is a long way between here and there.

 

 

 

The Greek CDS-Cash basis package has risen dramatically - implying the market's expectation of a CDS trigger in the short-term is rising rapidly.
