Periphery EGB spreads look to be ending the week on a sour note: BTP spreads widening pretty sharply today, with 10Y out 8.5bp vs Bunds - through 200bp but still off the 206bp May high. 17+bp wider in Greek spreads as well.
- Not quite true on an intraday basis, but bigger picture, correlations with ECB hiking expectations remain intact. The risk-on/risk-off correlation with stocks has been pretty limited overall over the past week or so though - and the sharp retracement in equities this afternoon hasn't really had any impact on BTP spreads.
