By now, everyone knows that "Greece is Saved" even though 2-year government bonds are trading today at 28.3%, up from 26.62% at the open.

Let's turn our attention away from Greece to the "Not Saved Yet" group of countries including Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and the big Kahuna, Italy.

Portugal 10-Year Government Bonds - 13.05%

Ireland 10-Year Government Bonds - 12.43%

Greece 10-Year Government Bonds - 16.82%

Spain 10-Year Government Bonds - 5.61%

Italy 10-Year Government Bonds - 5.12%

Please note that 10-year yields in Italy are now approaching 10-year yields in Spain.

Also note that yields are not up across the board in Europe.

Germany 10-Year Government Bonds - 2.93%

I don't know about you, but I am sure glad "Greece is Saved". I look for equally impressive results when Portugal, Ireland, Spain, and Italy are "saved".
