the Chinese are a fast study.
they've been watching Bernanke export inflation,
they see how its done,
now they do it themselves.
The race to the bottom is on like Donkey Kong
China is willing to put at risk a huge amount of money (read hundreds of billions) in order to protect its European market and keep a third economic force financially viable in the world. The question is "How big is this rock that China is tying to its financial leg before it throws this financial rock into a financial ocean of unknown depth?" Stayed tuned to see if China suddenly gets pulled overboard.
Too little much too late.
China should sit out the collapse of the eurozone and just pick up the remaining scraps.
"I was in Vienna. I had with me an
Austrian chauffeur, Max his name
was, he spent time in the camps.
We were looking at these Viennese
cleaning up the bomb damage,
scavenging for rotting food, butt
ends, anything. I said, 'To think
a million of these people came out
to welcome Adolf on the day he
entered the city, a million of
'em, and now look at 'em.' "
Central Bank Wars Bitchez
The Central Bank war has begun
World Oligarchs having some fun
The end will come soon
When they buy out the moon
And they auction off tracks of the sun
Well done, sir.

PBOC: Panicking Bank of China
You can't win by only playing defense. China should shit $10B+ on the long end of US treasury curve to get the other central planners' attention, or bypass the planners and go straight to the NY debt market scare both the FED and the bankers behind the FED themselves.
China is buying the currency that will do best in a freegold environment. Smart move.
"Smart move" by China? Nah
This is the Dumb Virus, afflicts all Govt staff their first day in the public sector. We're now dealing with a mutant strain of the same, the Dumb & Dumber Super-Virus now widespread and growing like wildfire in all global Govts..
Chinas is no exception in fact throughout their history they've shown how well the Virus takes hold out there in the East and here we are again, losing money chasing the Euro-Disease (getting in debt following the vacuous idealogy politicians know what's best to spend others wealth on) down the drain
The toilet flush is ready for Chinas Govt just as it is for Europes and Americas Govts

When do I cash in some of my Gold? Ahhh decisions decisions

Funny! Silver, on the other hand, is really chapping my ass.
Bob, did you not get the office memo?.
it's an Industrial Commodity!.
IMF bailouts Latin America 80s China style.
Gee, Tyler, you must be joking when saying that FED loves strong EUR. Or are you just that naive? Tell me, how can FED start QE3 when euro is at 1.40? They have to push it down to 1.20 before QE3 starts. And that´s the whole story about this euro "collapse". Funny how no one cared about Italy 3 months ago, and when QE3 starts, no one will care about it again. So tell us. Are you in FED´s pocket or are you just that naive? I wonder.
What will be the first outcome of QE3?
But yes you are spot on. Unlike ALL other central banks, the Fed is the only one that wants a strong currency.
What will be the first outcome of QE3? Simple. Dollar plunge. Can FED/US afford a dollar plunge at 1.40? No. Can it at 1.20? Sure. Now, look when this eurozone scare began. As QE2 closed. Coincidence? Depends on the level of ones naivety.
In the same way as rating agencies assisted in housing bubble, they are now assisting in moping it up. And what´s better for EUR plunge, then euro-bashing? I cant believe you dont see this bankster mafia policy.
U might have a very good point
'Tell me, how can FED start QE3 when euro is at 1.40? They have to push it down to 1.20 before QE3 starts.'
Hmmm... Tiger, ... Obama is president so... Yes We Can! Dollar/Euro numbers are meaningless, whether 1.20 or 1.50. OT2 or QE3 or Trapped Wind Syndrome is a lock. Only when not if.
Euro/dollar cross is meaningless? How about correlation between oil and EUR/$ and then, by extension, oil and household consumpiton, aka GDP?
Poor Hungarian/Polish/Czech mortgage owners. Next up for the EURCHF: parity.
Now that's the JOKE of the century..............
What's worthless, and trades even up w/ the strongest currency on the planet........
some form of Greek default
some form of Greek default
Let's sack the private funds and make sure those honest bankers get their share.
I do wonder how many forms of default there are...
china won't do jack, they will need to narrow CDS spreads fast...thats the challenge, but the market is kinda sick of china posturing. china intervention only causes oil to be bid again which means just sucks in more inflation.
CDS are now completely irrelevant. ISDA shot itself, and the ECB, in the head after it made it clear that there will be no default determinations on European countries, making long position hedging thru CDS impossible. Therefore, the only way to "hedge" is to sell cash bonds.
Unintended consequences 101.
asia bonds got lifted going into the close of the session...Xover pushing wider (+18) as is Main (+5.875)
do you have the isda thing for this?
try these from the ISDA website:
It’s all Humpty Dumpty differentiation based on definition ("when I use a word ...") but buried in the video discussion underscoring that the direct payout consequences of a CDS event on Greece are not so big, because of hoped for recovery rates on the underlying and previous mark-to-market postings of collateral, is the kicker that an CDS restructuring event of default would trigger accounting rules on debt impairment, forcing bank and other holders to write down the assets, to market or myth depending on the audit firm.
What do you think will be the half life of this intervention. I sold my short positions in the premarket.

Truth is it's not China backstopping the EU.
It's the cartel behind backstopping the EU. Is that not obvious? That the same people pull the major strings?
EU middle class is older than American, so they will be sheared first.
The great middle class shear-down of 2011.
Bacstopping only creates constipated entities.
I'M AM LANCELOT!! said the chinese dude KNIGHT OF LOUND TABLE!!
CAN I TAKE YOUL OLDEL PLEASE?
MAY I LECOMEND THE PEKING DUCK? IT TASTES LIKE DOG AND SMELLS LIKE FISH!
Just look at the junks for SD
So suddenly hated is he
Once thought wise, now a punk
All his comments are junk
There's no one more vile than thee!
I'll take the General Tso and my friend the Kung Pao chicken
SNB and PBOC are on opposing sides in this game.
So what's the kindergarten version of this article im too damn hungover for all this crap. I take it something about an insolvent nation that just hasn't comes to terms with it's own problems and thus is filthy rich(china) bailing out a bunch of poor helpless bastards on the brink? Huh, another day in crazy town.
I thought Chinese were smart people, but they are making line to be the ultimate bag holders.
Idiocy do not know borders.
Idiocy does not know borders or have limits in Government
there fixed it 4 ya
If you are disillusioned at the dumb fucks running our future , just be thankful you arent Chinese and have to put up with those monumental morons in the Politburo. China a white knight? Please. Theyre panicking just to prevent a social breakdown in their own borders and they think buying Euro debt is part of the solution. Little do they know theyre going to get the mother of all monkey fuckings. Their hard asset purchases are a drip in the bucket for a country their size. Theyre double fucked.
No they are not. They already own the US and now they will own EU. Bow down to your new master overlords. They keep what they kill...
And how do you work that out? When the US and EZ default and China ask for some "assets" the answer will be "tough luck Mr Won , buyer beware"
China will just have to suck it up. They arent killing anyone.
The Chinese economy is going to collapse as the old masters of monetary shennanigans bend them over the table.
Thats how you rebalance the US economy and create jobs.
Any talk about deficits , stimulus and tax is just a huge fucking waste of time until you bring the hammer down on Asia because even with their stupidity they cant afford to keep funding US deficit spending ad infinitum with a permanently broken economic model - the question is , will the US politicians listen to the will of the people and do this at the expense of some short term corporate profits.
D-Day is nearing. All roads lead to default and a global economic collapse , its how you position to come out the other side that counts , not how long you can extend the pain.
Yeah, ok, sure
Don't forgot history, Sino-Indian Border Conflict , Korean War, they can do allot fo killing actually.
You think China will invade Spain and Italy? Then the US? Dont think so. They care about their doorstep. When was the last time China invaded a country that wasnt within their immediate geopolitic sphere?
Or are you saying get ready for a few billion Chinese on rafts washing up on Long Beach?
Have you ever been to SF? They already have a foothold. ;)
When was the last time deadbeats owed China trillions over the entire northern hemisphere of Earth?
Ok so you ARE saying China will invade. Will it be with Nukes or do they have several dozen fleet carriers hidden in a dry dock? Or are they going to cram enough personnel onto that crummy thing they wheeled out a few months ago?
The US will default on China before Chinese military can get close to threatening anyone more than a timezone or two outside their border.
