The Meltdown is Engulfing Spain
This is Europe week for financial markets. Italy is currently engulfed in a political, and increasingly markets, crisis. Now the panic and political gloom is spreading to Spain. The country's Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, is set to face a no confidence vote and the outcome is very uncertain. Accordingly, Spain's sovereign yields have been rising alongside Italy's. The no confidence vote will be held on Friday and comes following a ruling of corruption against the center-right party of which Rajoy is leader.
FINSUM : Southern Europe is back in the news this week after a six-year hiatus. We don't think anything major will be caused by Spain, but the Italian situation is very dicey.
