How will that affect the price of their choclolate bars. They have wonderful choclolate.  Their cows are pretty too.

SOVX has been breaking apart.  Out 33 bps to 292 today.  Liquidity totally gone.  Hitting other credit markets.  Equities have ignored sovereign debt problems for almost 2 weeks, could be ugly in a hurry.

I bought 750 physical Francs back in the early Spring - just to get me through a week or two of a possible currency event - me thinks I should have bought 7500 Francs

Curious...how long was the delivery lag?

My PM delivery lags have widened by > week, and I'm seeing lots of dealers running very short on what they have "in stock."

Mayhem - I'm talking about physical PAPER currencies - the last thing you want to do in a crisis is sell your Gold.

Huh?  I'm buying, not selling.  I was referring to the lag it takes for the dealers to deliver TO me.

Euro fleeing to perceived safety of (gold-backed) currency, as well as USD.  The timing of this is uncanny, as the flight away from tattered Euro and dead PIIGS debt mask the plight of the USD.

Once the debt-ceiling is passed (which will be like a payday for the administration on its way to Atlantic City casinos), the value of the "deal" wil be halved (at best) and the free fall will continue under the guise of (euro) darkness.

I'm not bettor, but if I was I'd say the rubber meets the road when the $500B of maturing T's hits in what, 45 days?  Then the sound of twisting metal...

That are called the mood swings...

They'll bite you in the ass when you take notice and even when you don't take notice...

They come out of nowhere and bite you whitout any logical reason...

You can only chase them away by throwing your credit card to them, something made out of gold with a diamond or if you're lucky with a bouquet of flowers.

 

THE TRICK IS TO DO YOU BUSINESS IN LESS THEN 20 SECONDS!!

I'm not saying this because of the fairly dramatic intraminute action this am (U.S. time), but I and many have recognized that the euro was doomed from the start (as did many Brits, who decided to hedge accordingly).

How many different kinds of cheeses are there in France alone, and how hard was it to try and hold that place together throughout a history of attempted conquests?

Does anyone or no one agree that the Eurozone is already in a state of economic disintegration, in no small part due to their vastly different cultures and financial condition from nation to nation (Germany v Italy, etc.)?

It's hard enough to arrive at consensus in the U.S. together with the whole Red State/Blue State thing, or Canada together with the whole French/English spat.

The Eurozone is magnitudes and multiples more complex than any other economically integrated area using a common currency that anything the world has ever seen, and it should be fairly obvious that the experiment is inevitably destined for complete failure, no matter how the winding up takes place.
