Spain CDS On Track For Record Close

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Spanish CDS, at 493bps, have just pushed above their previous record wide closing levels (though remain a few bps below their record intraday wides at 499bps from 11/17/11). The Spanish bond market, which we have numerous times indicated does not reflect the economic realities since it is so dominated by LTRO-buying and government reach-arounds, remain 45bps off their record wide spreads to Bunds. BBVA (430bps) and Santander (415bps) are also close to their record wides back in late November as their stock prices plummet.

 

Chart: Bloomberg

Looks like it's time for "The Running of the Bulls" - really let those suckers loose this time, cut into the youth unemployment problem as well as provide entertainment value.

Draw a line off the lows of 2009 to the low of 2002 to the highs of 1996 and 1994 in the IBEX 35. WE ARE THERE! It's do or die for Spain tonight now. Just my opinion but this is a low risk buy in the IBEX here.

Could someone be pushing these up and selling them at the same time thinking (knowing) they will eventually be valueless? You know, say someone like JPM. It just seems that after Greece their use and therefore value is a little suspect.

Spain is next. And we all know they are not Greece. A major part of Europe in which there is not enough confetti to bail them out. It is beginning. 

And you think one or to hedge funds trying to get out of AAPL> Gotta luv it.

Who would buy CDS anymore?  The real value of all of them is zero when there is a binary outcome of a)good luck collecting when the world is in financial ruin or b)an event is always voluntary.

A stranger off the streets attemps to sell you an I.O.U. for a certain amount with a promise to pay it back... The man has always made good on his promise to others in the past, but recently has had gambling problems, suffers from alcoholism, is behind on his child support and has ever increasing amounts of debt with no end in sight... no one else but his own mother will lend him money.

Would you lend to him?

Welcome to Europe, the second greatest ponzi in the world (after the US)!!

On a side note... ICELAND FORGIVES ALL MORTGAGES!!!
