Greek CDS Auction Results: Greek Bonds Settle for 78.5% Discount

The Greek CDS auction has now completed, settling at 21.5%, or a discount of 78.5% to face value. 
RBS came in with the highest bid at 22, follow by Bank of America at 21.625, and JPM at 21.25.
Now that Greek bonds have been priced at a 78.5% discount, the credit default swaps of those who DID NOT accept the Greek bond swaps will now trigger payouts.
Time for the capital balance musical chairs game to commence.
