Would love to hear your thoughts on Citi CDS. Looks like market is pricing in a WaMu-like event here (as opposed to a Lehman-like disaster OR GSE-like nightmare). Any thoughts?

you are talking about a nationalization/ conservatorship type event. i have no idea how the government will treat citi as there is absolutely no pattern on previous bank defaults. look at my post Some Thoughts On N-Word Implications to see just how confused the government also is. I would not touch Citi CDS here, although my bias would be further widening with stops.
