Peripheral Spreads

June 14th, 2016 5:23 am | by John Jansen |

Fear has once again gripped markets with peripheral spreads melting down. As I noted at this hour yesterday I follow Italy and Spain in the 10 year sector versus US to gauge sentiment. By that metric markets are less than festive this morning. Last Thursday morning I had clocked 10 year Spain versus US at 29 basis points (Spain rich to US). That traded at 15 basis points at this time yesterday and rests at 5 basis points today. There has been a similar move in Italy. Last Thursday that spread as 40 basis points and yesterday it sat at 28 basis points. This morning that spread is 16 basis points.

    And but a few hours later, that richness continues to evapourate

    Sort of amazing that Italy and Spain could trade rich to US.
