Spanish Bonds Give Up 50% Of Gains In A Week

Tyler Durden's picture

While we have pointed out that 10Y Spanish bonds have deteriorated notably since the Euphoric moves recently, we have oft heard the stoic bulls arguing thus: but, but, but... 2Y is where the real action is and that's where the ECB will support them. Umm, sorry, even amid a dismally quiet and illiquid week which should see yields drifting lower as they roll gently down the curve, 2Y Spanish bond yields have retraced 50% of their rally from last Friday and are comfortably back above 4% once again. Perhaps, slowly but surely, the realization that for it to get better, it has to get much worse is taking hold - though obviously US equity holders have yet to get that message.

Hey where's Banzai? Is he on hiatus?

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I pinged him yesterday after wondering the same thing. Can't say where he is, just that he's "out of pocket".

But he had a shit eating grin on in his email so I suspect he's up to no good. Hopefully with a select member of the opposite sex. :>)

Well overdue BTW. Bill has been a 24/7/365 machine for nearly three years since busting out here on Zero Hedge. 'Bout time he took a restorative break.

I hope so too. But it's not the same without him around.

It was remarkable how quickly he shot to the surface once he got a little exposure here on ZH. He still would have exploded onto the scene under different circumstances. You just can't suppress such amazing talent.

I <heart> how his mind works as expressed through his art. He is wired like few others are and I see the world differently when viewed through his eyes.

Knowing WB as we do, the man is most likely planning some uber-trashing of some stupid banker-fuck/politico-douche, and will be returning soon.

I hope he is knee deep in poon, and imbibing some quality stuff. He earned it.

The EUR/USD 5 minute chart today is a comedic masterpiece.

Not a single down-tick since exactly 9:30am.

Whee whee weeeeeeeeeeeeee

Come along for the ride everyone. The market is nothing but an amusement park to get away from your job for a day, and get your screaming kids to leave you alone for a few hours. Sure it will cost half your life savings to go and you'll be forced to overpay for everything. But, you were part of the excitement, right? As soon as you leave the kids will say they didn't have enough fun and you have to go back. The park will send you discount tickets and special offers to lure you in. The party starts again.



Sorry but JCP going up 10% on the confirmation that they are pretty much toast put me in the looney bin for the rest of the day.

Shorts taking profits on the news and getting out on an a short term oversold position. The trade is too crowded. Give it a couple days and the down trend will continue.

But they are going to "hold the course", they are not panicking! Ha! Ha! Ha! Brilliant.

Those stop hunting algos are the shit though.  Market is one giant air pocket and anyone that dips their toe in gets their head ripped off. lol 

My visual is that the real market is still hanging down around 666 and JPM/GS are catching every long/short that dares to wade into thier air space.

I like to think of algos as piranha...

Oh cut out the nonsense already, same guy who just pushed EURUSD up on vapors along with every traded instrument known to mankind should be buyin them there Spanish bonds, no problemo amigo.

But, but the chart is going up so that must be bullish right? At least the SPX thinks so anyway. Once again erasing the losses from the European session. China trade collapse, Spanish bonds sell off....old news. Jackson Hole. Now that's new news. Draghi will be speaking....shorts will be trembling.

While we are in the global recession discussion the IEA and OPEC cut the oil demand forecast for next year.

"The agency expects global economic growth of around 3.3 percent for 2012, rising to 3.6 percent in 2013 — down marginally from last month’s report (3.8 percent) as the economic backdrop has worsened.

Global oil supplies grew by 0.3 mb/d month-on-month to 90.7 mb/d in July with global oil output 2.6 million barrels a day above a year ago, despite crude oil supplies declining from Iran , Angola and Libya as political and economic disruption and sanctions weighed on numbers."

So we still ended up with more oil than last year, even with supply disruptions. The world is still producing more supply than it uses. Yet oil prices are still massively elevated. With this news oil is down .75%.

I think the trading computers have all been set to defend the current level and the market will just gyrate around.
