going once, going twice, out!

... the next Greek auction might be the last!

After all the effort covering up the EURO's debacle, one playing the tough German guy, sorry: lady, others playing the old time friends in need Greek bonds are hitting the 7% mark again. That's about 4% more than German bonds are paying.

That is not to say that German bonds are any more secure than the Greek ones; during the last three months app. eight billion EUROs were transferred from Greek saving accounts into British and Swiss bank accounts - and that is just what is known and traceable.

Once Greece will be giving in the artificial currency will be history; the implosion of all the fatal balance sheet constructions and bends won't survive the urgent desire of all so-called Club-Med countries to follow Greece into a then strong "Bond of the Weak". Mind you, France does have a substantial Mediterranean coastline.

So, every Sunday evening you go to bed with the same odd EURO in place will be one of the very last ones.

Update 08-04-2010: 
today the 10y bond cost Greece 7.4%; Spanish money is leaving Spain the rumours say.

Carpe diem!
