SHIBOR: We Have A BIG Liquidity Problem

Submitted by Tyler Durden from on 01/21/2011 12:50 -0500

When two weeks ago we first pointed out the surging Chinese weekly SHIBOR (following up on comparable observations from last summer) it prompted a variety of bemused responses, the bulk of which were of the now traditional “this is irrelevant” variety. Too bad. Today, the 7 day SHIBOR (and repo rate) has just surged to new multi-year highs and has literally exploded from 2.5% to 7.3% in a few short days. Two weeks ago we said: “In a nutshell: there is no marginal liquidity left in the world’s fastest growing economy. Eventually this will dawn on the world. Until then, BTFD.” Looking at the SHCOMP’s performance over the past two weeks, this has in fact dawned on the world. And when the headline scanning algos running our own stock markets realize that the world’s biggest marginal economy has absolutely no short-term liquidity left, the aftermath will be very ugly.
