Credit's Not Buying It

We discussed earlier how various non-US-equity asset classes were differing in their opinions on the likely events going forward. Even more short-termist, it seemed a large number of people really didn't want European financials exposure. Well, this afternoon has seen volumes dry up in ES and limp higher as IG and HY credit spreads have moved wider and wider quite comfortably. While we can never be sure, it seems credit professionals are not so comfortable being long and unhedged into the weekend.

UPDATE: and the more broad-based risk basket diverged too...
