Currently there is a lot of confusion on where to price debt risk

July 27, 2011

Treasury yields increased this morning as concern is growing that lawmakers won’t agree on a debt limit in time to avoid a default. The market is currently waiting for a deal and for the moment doesn’t appear to know how to price in the risk (or perceived risk for those of you that
