    Kamakura Corporation launced the world's first sovereign default probability model in 2008. Background on the model is available in this introduction to sovereign default risk and this comparison between corporate and sovereign default analysis.

    The blue line is the 1 year default probability for Spain. The yellow line is the 1 year default probability for Italy.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
