Sovereign CDS As A Proxy For Relative Risk

Interesting observation, correlating the ratio of US to Japan CDS (especially with Japan CDS' tightening 7 bps while USA CDS was 2 bps wider) versus the JPY/USD (inverted axis). Is the sovereign risk trade trying to find other conduits for expressing relative risk in this environment where no sovereign risk seems to exist anymore as all countries are expected to print, print, print all their problems away.
