"superSIV goes well, and buys the big banks time to wait for the CP markets to heal, then that's a good sign that we may have a softer landing. If the CP markets close up again and the banks have a hard time rolling over their SIV debt, then we may be in for major turbulence. "

that's a quote from an article I just read in
I need to know what these terms mean:

CP markets
superSIV and SIV

Can anyone lend me a clue here?

Thanks so much!
