Spain Is Having A Monster Day

The Spanish 2-year bond yield — the ultimate proxy for nervousness in the Eurozone, since short-term Spanish borrowing is what does all the “work” in financing the government — is staging a huge rally this morning, with yields falling below 3%. Here’s a 1-month chart via Bloomberg:

On the equity side, the IBEX 35 is now up 1.5%, which comes on top of a 3.4% gain yesterday, and also a gain on Monday, making it a pretty huge week.
