Previewing Europe's Heavy Sovereign Issuance Flow

Tyler Durden's picture

JP Morgan may suddenly be finding itself in deep doodoo, with wide-ranging implications for what this huge prop trading loss means for other less than "fortress balance sheet" banks, all of whose trading blotters are surely riddled with comparable attempts at picking pennies in front of steamrollers, but at least "Europe is fine" and its banks are "solvent". So as a reminder, here is what Europe can look forward to next week: in a word - one of the heaviest bond issuance weeks so far in 2012. And no, these are not slam dunk Bills maturing inside the LTRO. Good luck Europe.

'Greece to sell bills'

Who would not want to invest in these bonds when you can make a average -2-5% real coupon return after adjusting for CPI!

Liquidate your PM's and get involved!

Canada has a HUGE property that thing gets managed should be interesting. Europe is simply a "fire sale in the waiting." They have kept the US Army out of Greece (for now...and mistakenly in my view), China is either "merely slowing" or "is hitting the mother of all brick walls" (plunging yields on treasuries say stop with the paranoid market manipulation baloney and start with the "brick wall in china" scenario), blah-blee-blah-blee, blah. The ONLY form of Risk Management is QUALITY, ACCURATE AND TIMELY INFORMATION THAT IS WELL RECEIVED BY RISK MANAGERS. The problem for the TOTALITY of Wall Street AND Washington TOGETHER is the last: "they simply have no interest in bad news because that's your problem not their's." Agoraphopa Nation "we can build whole new cities if we have to." And we have i might add...and "not just in the USA but in Iraq, Afghanistan...

Read the title of the article again, then once more just to let it sink in.

"Previewing Europe's Heavy Sovereign Issuance Flow"

Issuance, has nothing to do with repayment or servicing of debt. So they didn't forget to mention it, just was not relevant to the article.
