Headed for euphoria

This is not surprising given where credit markets are trading. As an example, the Merrill European High Yield Index average yield is now below 4.5% (4.46% to be precise). Keep in mind this is sub-investment grade debt mostly from European issuers. The yield on these bonds is now less than half what it was just a year ago.



Not much else to say here other than enjoy it while it lasts.
