EURCHF Plummets On Casey Anthony Verdict

Tyler Durden's picture


We kid... We kid... Who the hell know what caused the surge in the Swissy. Maybe the fact that the Titanic just sank by another 5 feet. We'll confer with the violinists and let you know. In the meantime we fully expect the mean reversion algos to take over and reverse the correction overshooting by 2 std devs to the upside next.

With everything thats happening, I bet it would be safe (Portugal just got downgraded) to go without pants and underwear altogether...


NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The dollar and Treasury prices extended gains on Tuesday after Moody's Investors Service cut its credit rating on Portugal to below investment grade. The dollar index /quotes/zigman/1652083 DXY +0.38% , which measures the performance of the greenback against six currencies, rose 0.5% to 74.668, after being up about 0.2% in earlier trading. The euro /quotes/zigman/4867933/sampled EURUSD -0.89% fell 0.8% to $1.4422 after being down about 0.4% prior to the rating cut. Yields on 10-year notes /quotes/zigman/4868283 10_YEAR -1.73% , which move inversely to prices, fell 7 basis points to 3.13%, from 3.15% earlier.

By Stephen L. Bernard

  NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--The euro extended its losses Tuesday after Moody's Investors Service downgraded Portugal's credit rating by four notches and into junk status.

  Moody's slashed Portugal's rating to "Ba2" from "Baa1" and assigned a negative outlook on the rating. The rating was cut because of worries Portugal might need a second round of financing and that it might not be able to meet deficit reduction targets.

  The euro is at $1.4459 from about $1.4488 just before the report was released, according to EBS via CQG.

The NWO globalists have struck again:


International body ICSPA to fight cybercrime globally




UK Prime Minister David Cameron has welcomed the alliance.

"Our government has already injected an additional £650m to help improve our national infrastructure and protect against cybercrime, but the very nature of this threat calls for more than a national response; it demands a truly global response and that is what the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance is all about," he said.




The days of free Internet are numbered, because of those Bilderberg pigs.


Whenever you hear them use those bullshit words like "global effort" or "international leadership", then you know where this shit is coming from. These control freaks want to be so clever, but are too incompetent and stupid to even get Fukushima under control. Imagine now a global government trying to contain a Fukushima like event, running around like headless chicken. That's why central planning is doomed to fail, as it always does.

I wonder how likely it would be for you to have a tragic LULU spandex accident where you were found accidentally hanged by a pair and we dont have to listen to any more of your pointless off-topic posts about some silly bubble momo stock or other.

The real question is: what is the MSM going to cover now? This dumb ass trial has been getting 24/7 coverage, forever.

Tiger Woods may be available. O.J. Simpson may as well. Maybe they can dig up Michael Jackson..."his corpse is not rotting...OMG".

Lets all talk about "True Blood" and Sookie.

Anything but "reality"...except, of course, here at ZH.

Dip buying is absolutely ferocious.

I wonder if 3rd Quarter "performance anxiety" is setting in?

I figured everyone would dump TSCO, NFLX, AAPL, FOSL, etc. after showing an outsized position on the June 30 statement print. 

But these idiots keep buying more and more.

Check out the "bridge" buy formation (on volume) that opened HES today.  Huge buying on the price rise of oil.  Makes sense.  But then one large sell order followed it.  Oil supply/demand sets up the price action, and Algo Machines knock it down. 

PS, a large sell order on HES in the last minute of trading.  Algo Machines taking profit by scalping a finite resource.  They have no value when it comes to sustainability, their only "thought" is to make money.

PPS, The more I look at the markets, the more I notice a whipsaw across oil/PM stocks in the last minutes of trading.  SLW had a large buy, and PSLV had large sells.  XOM had a huge buy, and HES had a large sell.  NEM had a large buy order, and GG and ABX sold off.  Volatility, like a shark, is in the water, and it smells blood.

One look at Lululemon is all you need to know - f'ing amazing passing through $120 today.  Don't see any pullback...not yet.

Then when you do see a pullback in these triple digit P/E bubbles, no one will be around to sell to not even at half price. Same as DotCom, and all the other bubbles. One morning morons will wake up and see their LULU at $10 and go WHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

I see a pullback when I see it...I don't own the thing but great canary in the coal mine.

The lower the volume the easier the levitation of the entire market, the less relevant P/E's, book values.  Until there is a problem, there is no problem.

RoboT , can you sign off each post with a number between 1 to 10 , 10 being max bullish , and 1 being max bearish.

Because im working on a way to emperically measure your ST outlook and then package it into a monthly subscription.  I sense a strong correlation between your excitement and what the market does next. Youre like a 1 man put-call ratio.

Just need to formulate your yapping and then it should be easy to monetize.

Silver and oil are kicking the shit out of the markets today, because both are experiencing huge supply crunches, and gold is chasing them.  Silver demand has never been higher, and oil supply, which has been flat for five years, has finally come to the backside of production.

The Euro looks weak, but comparing Fiat is passe.  Compare everything to the asset that Central Bankers use, gold, to know what is happening:  the system is highly leveraged, and it is leveraged on gold reserves, the only real asset that Central Banks hold.

The 3-3:30 ramp. Like clockwork.  I think this happenes because ETF's have to settle earlier in the day (2:30?) and this allows the algo's to rise on vapor.

Skynet knows if it can just take out Friday's highs, the next leg of the short squeeze can ensue and S&P 1370 will burn the herd (b/c not a soul aside from B. Sack will be able to explain it).

Those who lost faith in PM's, oil, etc. will again be crucified and left chasing (always believe in the 2nd order effect, printing, rather than the 1st order of organic healing via deflation).
