Germany is open to a precautionary credit line for Spain, reports Bloomberg. Spain is supposedly interested in a bailout "line of credit" in which the ESM would approve but not disburse any funds until Spain draws on them - more "bazooka in pocket" stuff. The euro adds 35 pips to already solid gains, +0.8% to $1.3049.

    This is so silly we all know Spain will need major amounts of capital to cover its bonds for the next 3-4 years hoping the EU's economy can turn positive. We will have to wait until after the Election coming soon to see if that states votes to leave or not. If so another problem for Madrid if they can move forward creating jobs that can be a beneficial to there economy.

    Standby Letters of Credit have been a pillar that enables International business between strangers for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. It seems like the Europeans are making sense for a change.

     

    I am, however, the opposite of an expert in these matters. But I'm an investor and they are critical to me.

     

    What am I not getting?

     

    Thanks in advance.
