A quick note on Greece - as of Friday, the yield on 1-year Greek debt has soared to 212%, up from 144% a week ago, just after the grand "solution" to the crisis was announced. Over the past week, the price of 1-year Greek debt has plunged by 20%, to 38.4 (bid 35.81, ask 40.97 to be exact). Which begs the question - if everyone has agreed that Greek debt will only be written down by 50%, why is the 1-year note trading at just 38% of face value, with longer maturities trading below 30% of face? This sort of incongruence isn't inspiring.
