A merry Christmas and Happy New year to all! well, now that the niceties are set aside I suppose I should apologise for the lack of posts over the past month or so. Unfortunately, I’ve been caught up in a bit of a personal quagmire that deflected my attention away from this website. However, activities will resume over the coming year.

So this is a goodbye to 2010, to its share of ups and downs and merry fun happy roller-coaster joys and an early hello for 2011. Things to come should certainly keep this site and many others highly busy with expected sovereign risks continuing over the horizon, ongoing political/economic pressures, equity market warm-ups and yields a plenty for those in the know.

With a quarter of the world’s sovereign debt loads up for grabs through redemptions and roll-overs next year, there should be enough jolts to keep us alert and maybe even something to give that infamous VIX contango a bit more meaning and substance.

But enough said, I look forward to the new year. Until then, merry holidays but, as always, watch out for the drive home and the occasional hang-overs.
