and then parity.

1.2329 is the Oct. 2008 low. If it makes it through that (which I think it will) it will go to parity in a matter of days probably.

So, if the Euro did plunge to parity in short order, would that represent a short-term trading opportunity to go long the Euro? Corrections tend to overshoot on both the upside and downside. Would it be a reasonable speculation for the Euro to dead-cat-bounce 10 or 15%?

IMO, yes.

I believe Tyler, in a reply to Cheeky last week, called for 1.25 then a pop to 1.40 before all doody hits the wall.

Don't quote me please, I may be mistaken on account I burned too many brain cells in my youth.

how hypocritical and ironic that the U.S. ratings agencies can downgrade and implode the Euro. This is all orchestrated folks.

A couple of weeks ago France was talking about banning the ratings agencies from Europe. They better get moving on the idea :-)

Hmmm... France, not so much. On the other hand, if Germany is the last man left standing in Europe, they may well go medieval on the rating agencies.

This is orchestrated  by the FED, punishing France for their threat to leave Euro.

Any one considering buying stock European based companies?  From a dollar perspective  ADR stocks could drop another 20% assuming the European stock markets continue to drop along with the value of the Euro.  With parity, even more.  Very interesting times.

Can anybody explain to me why US is not under threat of down grading? Is it printing press which delivers product as fast as needed? Or something else?

Hmmm, other than the rating agencies being US based and also liking the $$$ they get from their involvement in it all?  Nahh, that couldn't be could it? ;)

Eally - just think of it as a cover-up. If the US takes a downgrade (or the major states), China may become destabilized. 

I suspect they're trying to keep things going to prevent having Moody's/S&P/Fitch people from being gutted on the altar and to control the incumbent attrition in November, as well.

They're craven liars who have never taken a stand in their lives. So you can expect their primary instinct to be self-delusion and self-preservation.

The wheat then goes to the Flour Mill. The Maize Grinding Mill requires an substantial program of light grinding, sifting and purifying to produce semolina of suitable clarity and particle size. Wheat is weighed because it is transferred in to the Flour Processing Machine. It passes via a collection of corrugated rolls. For pasta, durum is milled into coarse chunks of semolina as a result rolls are going to release coarse chunks of endosperm and minimum quantities of flour. It's then lifted pneumatically to top of Flour Mill Machinery after which comes down through sifters.
