the only thing i know for sure is that Trichet and Bernanke have way too much power
Now theres a few people with way too much power, and the rest have no power whatsoever.
YOU HAVE THE FREEDOM TO GO TO WORK EACH DAY AND PAY TAXES AND STILL YOU'RE NOT SATISFIED!!
all those freedoms and no clue what to do with it... FEMA CAMP FOR YOU FOR YOUR NEXT INDOCTRINATION STUDY!
I believe that 2 of them must meet regularly and enjoy touching eachother.
Nobody knows how far they go ... still secret
I heard Bernanke submitted an application to replace Hitler as Satan's girlfriend, they said they'll keep it on file. Go long pineapples?
Why are some people believing EU statements on monetary policy?
They dont want a strong euro.
They dont want a superweak one either. EUR/USD 1.25 to 1.50 will do quite nicely if they can control it.
Yes, you're right. We should only go by the US statements on monetary policy.
CNBS is actually quite useful to watch. No, I am not talking about Steve Liesman's genius, but the commercials.
--I may be in my pajamas now...
--Get Magic Jet or Jack or whatever now
--Bill Schaeffer made a financial gain with his invention, but these results are not typical
--Attention parents and grandparents with Gerber life insurance plan for your newborn
Highly polished and professional commercials keeps me glued to CNBS
Magic Jack at least 10 years behind the technology, just sign up for free Skype, conference calls, messages, all free as long as you dont mind the CIA monitoring. But thats included with everything now anyway.
I got this one invention for Wall St it may or may not make me a profit but its a rope design with a noose at 1 end. COuld be useful and have a decent market.
I was thinking Greece should leave the Euro, but doesn't that chart say the Euro drops the Greece?
Those two options are not mutually exclusive :)
I dont see what the problem is, just start printing more fiat imaginary currency! Solves everything.
I can't glean much value from these wacky crosses. I need a EUR:Gold chart.
There you go. Here's the fiat value.
Now that is one rotten chart. Much easier to read than the engineered tea leaves.
INCREASE MARGINS ON THE 5YR BY 25% SCOTTY!!
that should fix that problem....
INCREASE MARGINS ON EVERYTHING!!!! WHOEHAHAHAHAHA!!
I think what it tells us is the US is in a worse position then Euroland (pretty scary)
Exactly, that chart is fatally flawed.
Reprint it with the Euro relative to gold.
No, I think we're both pretty much fucked up.
RACE TO THE BOTTOM BITCHEZ!!!
I take Worm's jackhammer.

Watching the various worthless currencies and 'bonds' or whatever bob up and down relative to the worthlessness of the others...what a bunch of crap.
Dividend yields on BBVA and STD are 7% and 12%.
That's too tempting for Grandma to ignore when she's getting a paltry 1 basis point on her 90-day T-Bill.
Aren’t grannies too old for STDs? I guess it depends on when u start.
Its an 8.06 yield now, but granny better have some big hairy balls if she wants to play that game. An extra dose of stupidity wouldnt hurt either.
Not one i want to hold ten years for the dividends.
Maybe it's not FX mispricing but rather CDS. Counterparty risk, anyone? Who is writting this insurance? Who holds porcine debt?
LIBOR-OIS has been widening for at least 6 months. Coincidence?
meanwhile, back at the ranch, the /es is up 6.00 for no reason other than it is not up 12.00
The Euro / PIGS CDS divergence is pricing in the exiting of Greece, et al, from the Euro. The article is written by a career FX hack inside the French bank. There are thousands of these guys collecting healthy checks writing this thin gruel each day. They all would have been fired in there had been no stimulus to banks. That is the real crime of Fed stimulus.
Market has to be considering a 2 tier Euro, the Club Med Euro vs the Buba based Euro. Spain becomes the "Buba" of the new Club Med Euro.
Haircuts of up to 50% for bondholders of PIGS debt (and they are lucky to get that).
USD to sterngthen in near term as talk (useless) of massive cuts in US spending is splayed resplendently across Lame Stream Media monosyllabic talking heads. But they are talking heads with commitment.
I think they're coordinating a default or restructuring with a new debt ceiling/QE double down. When bill gross is this short, the risk to the UST market is too great. Some of the PIIGS are perfect sacrificial lambs for this.
and lets not forget about the sh*t going on in the middle east:
"Whereas in the past the two correlated very strongly, since early 2011, the pair has diverged dramatically, leading many to speculate that just like in the case of Japan, the G-7 did another coordinate intervention to push the EUR higher"
You know, Tyler, Greek's share of Eurozone GDP is (just) 2.5%. That might have to do something with the "dramatic diverge"...
Is this USD tunneling process?
Average returns closed below 0 for the first time this year, yesteday. Whether it's lack of support from cordinated intervention or people are starting to question the EZ as a whole, cracks are starting to show.
Contradictions upon contradictions, upon contradictions......Capitalism is contradictory and these are the consequences of building on top of them.
You think they have gone...but they have just moved on. The crisis is in a 'hidden phase' awaiting the next shock.
The Pac Rim countries have an
incentive to keep the Euro high.
Their exports to Euroland depend on their ability
to afford them.
They have supported the Euro in the last crisis by
buying Euro bonds issued by the PIIGS.
kind of stupid..take germany CDS and eur/$, i guesss there will not bedislocation..
this asshole from socgen does he know that Greece is v.v. small and unimportant part of Europe.. actually not much of europe.. more like Turkey or countries from N africa/ middle east.. (egypt. Israel, etc)
germany + france+ holland+ denmark+ sweden + finland/etc is core europe.. they're pretty healthy, people are not engaged in stupid speculations like n. americanos
they are pretty frudal, hard working, v. big savings..you know that REAL N. EUROPE PROTESTANT ETHIC..
thats why despite this shit from spain/itreland/greece euro is so high today..
AS GEORGE CARLIN WOULD HAVE SAID 'EUPORE IS FINE USA IS FUCKED'
Soc Gen can't supervise its own trading desk. How about this? Markets discount the future. Maybe the market is starting to discount a two-tiered Europe/Euro.
Anyone want to guess what the name of the degenerate southern euro currency will be? If so, let's you and me split on the domain name and flip it to those wankers in a few months
