    We analyse the stability of linkages across Eurozone bond markets during the sovereign debt crisis. We distinguish between contagion and interdependencies as mechanisms for spreading the turmoil across bond markets. Using a three-regime Markov switching VAR, we identify two distinct phases of the crisis - the bad and the ugly - and find differences in shock transmission between them. Overall, evidence of contagion is scant and interdependence is the more common determinant of market comovements.
