They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so a chart as startlingly clear as our Debt Man’s Curve must be worth 10,000 words. EWI analyst Jason Farkas first created and wrote about this parabola that displays different risk levels of bonds in late July 2010. Specifically, the chart plots sovereign, municipal and corporate issuers on the same spectrum. The resulting sharp curve up makes it easier to see why we think that bond issuers are flirting with a bad crash the same way the driver does in Jan and Dean’s hit song from the 1960s, “Dead Man’s Curve.”
More recently, Jason recorded this 10-minute video to take his Currency and Interest Rate Specialty Service subscribers through the perilous Debt Man’s Curve. Now you can view it too, and learn more about which bond issuers are hovering in and around the “Trouble Zone.” Create your free Club EWI profile now to watch the Debt Man’s Curve video.
