Stocks are plunging across the globe as Greece looks set to default on tomorrow’s debt repayment and the reality of a Grexit hits the markets. With emergency aid to the country frozen, Athens has imposed capital controls to halt bank runs and confirmed that the country’s banks would remain shut for six working days. ATM withdrawals are being capped at €60/day. Over the weekend, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras shocked European policy makers by announcing a July 5 referendum on whether to accept the latest offer from Greece’s creditors.
With a default on the horizon, a divergence in the direction of eurozone bond yields is at work today, with money flowing into Germany’s fixed-income market, and out of Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece. The turbulence is in contrast to last week, when benchmark German bunds fell and Spanish securities advanced amid optimism a deal would be reached. 10-year bond yields: Germany -18 bps to 0.74%; Spain +24 bps to 2.34%; Italy +24 bps to 2.39%; Portugal +30 bps to 2.99%. The yield on Greek 10-year securities jumped the highest since December 2012, shooting up 379 bps to 14.63%.
No surprise that the S&P emini (ES) is lower in overnight trade with Greece on brink of default. Trade action is expected to be highly volatile as the GREK situation is highly fluid. Most key price parameters have already been exceeded, so it’s best to trade lighter than usual and be extra nimble, if yo are to trade under these conditions.
