We call it the most important chart in Europe since it’s the short-term sovereign borrowing that does most of the “heavy lifting” for governments in Europe, and it’s the short-term stuff that needs to stay cheap for the governments not to have a blowup.

This weekend, a report came out suggesting that the ECB was preparing to institute caps on the spreads between short-term peripheral debt and short-term German debt, perhaps as early as the September meeting.

This it’s no surprise to see the market snatching this stuff up.
