EURCHF Tumbling, Prints Fresh All Time Low Of 1.1914, Commodities Plunge (Update: Scratch That, New Low Is 1.1875)

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: Timber:

Wonder what is happening with Greek deposits? Nothing good, at least nothing good for Greek banks. And it is not just Greece: all of Europe is scrambling into the relative security of Switzerland where the EURCHF just hit a fresh all time low of 1.1915, and likely to drop much lower.

And the ongoing selloff so needed for QE3 continues.

Prepare the lifeboats

"But Captain, we don't have enough for the steerage passengers." What should we do, sir?"

Captain to sailor: "Save all the bankers first.  If there is any room left, load their baggage."


"Aye, aye, sir"

last week Art Cashin said it reminded him of Black Friday


let me tell you looking at the futures this reminds me of Oct 16 87 (posted last week)

Black Friday edition of Wall Street Week 1987 in its entirety



(but unlike '87 our leader, President Obama will be doing Bankster New York tonight landing on a Wall Street helipad and taking the bankster entourage uptown for dining at Daniel followed by a Broadway show) 


"And Mr. Obama will return to New York this month to dine with bankers, hedge fund executives and private equity investors at the Upper East Side restaurant Daniel."

weren't the new issue Pretend & Extend lifeboats used up in 2008?

...they're looking a bit ragged, maybe get one more use out of them and then it's Down & Drown

...hope Obumma enjoys his dinner at the NY Parasite Club... it will be one of his 'Last Suppers' for our beloved saviour as he's getting crucified in 2012

cdskiller's picture

Is it still considered crucifixion if you drive the nails through your palms yourself? Secondly, he doesn't seem to be in any pain. I think he is ready to go. He's made a lot of new friends in high places, he can hang with them for the rest of his life. He will claim, disingenuously, but charmingly, that he fought the good fight, and travel the globe like a rock star making inspiring and hypocritical speeches with no accountability for having to follow up his words with actions. How cool is that? It's f'ng perfect for him.

Zero Govt's picture

CDSkiller  -  you mean Obumma will take up the rock star lifestyle Toady Blair has enjoyed since being pushed out by Brown... a Credit Suisse sock puppet not to mention writing a book and taking up religion (not that the word of God, or any truth, was in much evidence between the pages, just the usual slippery socialists dishonest re-writing of history having ruined Britain with another orgy of loony left spending)

Why canada?

Economically they are in a much better place than Oz, and do not have the carry unwind panic sword over their heads.

Commodities getting hit hard, they are a commodity based econ.

The correlation between equities and commodities (including gold) is very strong.  If you believe the equity market is going to collapse, I'm not sure how you can believe commodities will be able to stand up on their own.

cossack55's picture

Its that whole eating thingy.  And barter, and clothes, and fuel.

How'd that work out in 2008?

Don't know, still stockpiling.  Never one to expose myself to counterparty. Physical everything.

I'm investing in a company called B.R.A.T. & Gui. Something about boiled ropes, tar, and guillotines. Should have a pretty good return on investment in the next couple of years.

Agree, commodos and gold will suffer short term. Just do not be on margin. That is a death wish.

The swiss mainstream media (which is not much less stupid than in the rest of the world) explains now each day that a strong swiss franc is good as imports get cheaper. Since years, they complain that a strong swiss franc is bad for our economy. In the meantime, dont forget that the balance sheet of swiss banks equals 800x the GDP and for those who think their money is safe in Switzerland, UBS apparently hires more and more people from Nigeria as they claim to be open to all cultures.At least at UBS, on 3 emplyees, there is now 1 german, 1 from Africa and 1 from Switzerland.This trend seems to happen also in other banks here in Zürich.


qussl3's picture

800x GDP?

I knew it was nuts but not THAT bad........


Zero Govt's picture

British Banks are 400% of GDP but there's absolutely fuk-all backing them, apart from the usual political credit line (robbery) of citizens/small businesses wealth

Short All French Banks , Important Sir.

Meanwhile, on the war front:

Libya: Gadaffi says "You said, 'we hit our targets with precision', you murderers ... One day we will respond to you likewise and your homes will be legitimate target. "NATO will continue this mission because if we stop, countless more civilians could lose their lives," Rasmussen said"


Yemen: An investigation team from the United States has reportedly found that an attack that wounded President Ali Abdullah Saleh and several senior members of his government while performing the Friday prayers in his Sana’a presidential compound earlier in June was carried out by an advanced US-made missile designed for special assassination operations, sources close to the probe told Al Arabiya. Meanwhile, Top US official Jeffrey Feltman called Thursday for an “immediate” transfer of power in Yemen after he met the Arab nation’s Vice President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi. “We continue to believe that an immediate, peaceful, and orderly transition is in the best interest of the Yemeni people,” – Al Arabiya

Syria/Turkey: Syria troops massing on the Trukish border as Hez prepares for war

Israel/Russia: The five Russian scientists were among 44 killed earlier this week; no official investigation of foul play has been opened, though Iranian nuclear experts have in the past been involved in similar accidents

My view of the past may be faulty, but I recall that meddling in the affairs of others (especially those who envision virgins in heaven) led to a rather large melee in New York on September 11th, 2001.   It amazes me that if it happens again it will be chalked up to the "fact" that we are hated for our "freedoms".    One thing that we learn from history is that we never learn from history.

Note to self's picture

The big unwind has begun

BCTwelve's picture

I'd like to see a strong dxy close above 76.
This market still has no problem bouncing over the next couple days to squeeze everyone who's gonna get short in about 20 minutes

Note to self's picture

I'm thinking margin calls are gonna dominate the action

A poll conducted by CNBS asked if "you are confident in Ben Bernanke"?

So far 96% said no. I would attach a link but I do not want to drive traffic to that garbage outfit.

EUR/CHF parity bitchez!

Voodoo-economist's picture

as far as CHF is concerned, id suggest thats less an effect of capital inflows from foreign europeans, but rather the Swiss repatriating their money from the world.
