This craziness in Europe cannot continue. Greece just issued 13-week paper at a yield of 4.1 percent — to put this in perspective, Germany pays 3.8 percent for its 30-year bond. That's right: Greece is paying more for 3-month paper than Germany pays for a 30-year bond.
"Although we believe these strengths currently outweigh what we consider to be the U.S.'s meaningful economic and fiscal risks and large external debtor position, we now believe that they might not fully offset the credit risks over the next two years at the 'AAA' level," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Nikola G. Swann.
Options expiration day. Global markets are mixed, futures down fractionally, as the Greek Prime Minister said restructuring of the debt was not going to happen (no one seems to believe him). This is not a bad start, considering earnings season has not started with a bang.
Futures are weaker, the Greek stock market is down 2.2 percent this morning as many seem to believe that some kind of restructuring of Greek and possibly Portugese debt is inevitable. There is talk that rather than an outright default this would entail simply extending the maturity of the debt. But since this would clearly violate the terms of the contract, it would be hard to not call that a default.
