For those of us who don't speak Bloomberg... what's that first chart, please.

Sorry, if the labelling wasn't clear.
The first chart is EUR vs 10yr Spain-Germany bond spread.

If its 4th and less than 1 yard don't punt, run it off tackle or try a 3 wide reciver set.

remember the wise comment 'if you want to sell yen you'd better find out first why it has been so strong'? guess chart 3 is the answer then...

Indeed Kwan.... next question is when the paradigm shift occurs where JGBs start to have a credit premium built into them.

Completely off topic question I'm afraid. Anyone got any idea where I can get data for government bond market aggregate turnover (US or UK)going back to before 1980 please?

I have data back to 1995 for the UK but can't find anything useful before that.

Thanks awfully.

Has it occurred to anyone speculating in the currency markets that the yen is the currency of a small, earthquake-prone island next to a nuclear-armed nutter? Not very econometric, I know, but it's a not entirely bad reason to avoid putting the family's eggs in that particular basket.

That never stopped people from investing in California.

To be fair, Jochum, Canada and Mexico are not nuclear states.
