Recommended Posts

Bloomerg link

Portugal sold 599 million euros ($778 million) of bonds due in 2020 at a yield of 6.716 percent, the country’s debt management agency said today. That compares with 6.806 percent at the previous auction on Nov. 10. The government also placed 650 million euros of bonds due in 2014 at a yield of 5.396 percent, up from the 4.041 percent on Oct. 27.

Has the corner been turned?

It all rather depends on who was doing the buying, who they were buying for, whose money they used and whether they had any expectation of ever getting it back

Yes, I am sure that the ECB will be entirely open about their bond purchases, if they have made any at all. Which they probably havent as I understand everyone is chomping at the bit to get a piece of debt from such a well managed economy with no discernible deficit.

Short conversation with the wife this morning.

"We could buy some of those with our Euros and get 6.7%, would that be a good idea"?

"Why buy Portuguese bonds at 6% when we could buy some Greek ones and get 11%"!

"Shall we"?
