Futures Surge On Greek Bailout Report

Tyler Durden's picture


Following the previously reported news that Germany is sacrificing its political leadership, not to mention credibility, to bailout its banks, futures are currently ripping. As the chart below indicates, ES is surging right now, even as the broader risk basket is left far behind, since the markt realizes the "Brian Sack" pod at Citadel will be double taxpayers doubletime.

And since the entire stock market is now driven by the relative move in the EURUSD, with over 80,000 long EUR contracts recently eliminated in the net spec non-commercial position (as we presented previously) and as the net USD spec position moved from a net short to a net long for the first time since January, expect to see a pronounced knee jerk reaction as the FX specs proceed to get roundtripped for at least a few days. Which if nothing else buys the insolvent governments just that: a few days.

In reality this solution seems to involve a proposal to let other countries (Germany) get involved in collecting taxes from Greek citizens... since the process appears to be too complicated for the Greeks to collect their own taxes.

This is likely to produce something very different than the state run protests we've seen in Greece so far.

Germany bails out its own banks, Greece winds up empty- handed as per usual.

No haircuts for now, but Greece will still default, maybe not next week.

Bizarre kind of musical chairs where standee is taken away and shot. Who gets 'bailed' next? Ireland?

What about Italy?

World economies engaged in endless rear- guard actions to postpone the inevitable, when all the chairs are taken away and all the standees array themselves in a circle and shoot each other.

I suppose at this point I am going to have to look a little bit foolish. I am wondering at the meaning of ES.  

Expected shortfall (ES) is a risk measure, a concept used in finance (and more specifically in the field of financial risk measurement) to evaluate the market risk or credit risk of a portfolio. It is an alternative to value at risk that is more sensitive to the shape of the loss distribution in the tail of the distribution. The "expected shortfall at q% level" is the expected return on the portfolio in the worstq% of the cases.

Expected shortfall is also called conditional value at risk (CVaR), average value at risk (AVaR), and expected tail loss (ETL).

ES evaluates the value (or risk) of an investment in a conservative way, focusing on the less profitable outcomes. For high values of q it ignores the most profitable but unlikely possibilities, for small values of q it focuses on the worst losses. On the other hand, unlike


If I understand this chart correctly then I am being told that a basket of somthing (equities in the other basket?) just got a lot more risky, or that its "tails" just got larger? Financial slang is a study of its own!


Thank you in advance for any help :)

First thing you gotta look for if you are trading in the markets, is that when they start doing stupid sh*t like spending and sending oil (inflation) bid = you get riots.  Riots freak out the market.  So, this bailout rubbish is doing nothing but sending prices upward.

We are in the endgame and hedge funds struggle to hedge (downside) in asset supported markets.  But it ends.  When?  Next 6mth, we are going down...hard.

Also read up about Mandlebrot theories (markets). What the 'powers' at be always miss, is that the meltdown happens within (internal) and moves outward.  That's where we are heading.

 Im not suprised at all either. All QEs must end on a happy note and never be faded lest QEs credibility be questioned. Between the margin games to throw a little water on PMs and oil, and another can kicking for the PIGS, The dry humping of stocks will dutifully continue at least until July.

 Then things are allowed to tank, while the process of praising QE2 and selling QE3 plays out thru the usual propaganda channels (MSM). Sound familiar?

  A significant correction occuring during a QEX would call into question QE itself. The Pigmen will of course manipulate the living dogshit out of whatever is required to make sure QE is the drug of choice that would kill the pateint if ever withdrawn.

  Its not the Twilight Zone, its the Outer Limits. They control the economy and the sheeples perception of every aspect of it. (until something breaks)

Tyler...what do you mean risk their "political leadership"? They have never been in the business of doing what is best for the populace only themselves. If they siphon the dollars off to the bankers then they could care less if the lose an election. They are only their to enrich themselves and there in lies the ultimate definition of crony capitalism. So they lose an election and meander off into obscurity at the end of the day they are assured at worst case for their minion like work to walk away with an "international advisor" position @ GS ala Sen. Judd Gregg. There is no accountabilty because like minded individuals follow behind them in a great wake of Hansel Gretel crumbs to riches left by taxpayer debt and impunity by their secret handshaking self appointed monarchs of finance. Think Fat Al from that Chapelle Show skit..."kiss the rings bitches..I'm paid" They are willing to roll the dice with prosecution as long as the corporate dollars fund their replacements and judicial sheltering via judges and media propaganda. Nuremberg would have nothing on this class of 2000+ individuals who resort to the same passive aggressive abuses through gradualism. Chipping away Dufrense style and hope nobody notices till you have tunneled out of Shawshank or in our case removed every check and balance on power and the rights of the individual. Nothing but sneak thieves. History proved however that tyranny is always defeated and not in a pretty fashion. America will be looked back upon in 400 years as experiment of ideas that must be replicated and protected at all costs. Maybe it will be attempted again in Australia or a smaller land mass but it has now failed us.

Germany is risking their political leadership not only to bail out their banks but to bail out the EU as a whole. This bailout is as much motivated by politics as it is motivated by finance. EU consolidation is a dream that these people will do absolutely anything to make come true. ANYTHING. They will plunge their population into serfdom, sacrifice their first borns and cut off their dicks if that's what it takes. Sacrificing Merkel is small price to pay for those people. The banks have got the politicians by the balls because in order to save the EU dream, you have to save the Eurozone. And to save the eurozone, you have to save the banks.

There's simply no Plan B. There's only bail and kick the can. 

There's simply no political will to reform the system. And worse, there's simply no way for any country to extricate itself from debt saturation, from the interdependent and self-referential public/private debt pyramid or from the web of deceit and lies that was needed to build it up. The banks own the politicians and every developed country was involved in the web. 

That's why QE3 and QEn are inevitable: the economy will always contract without more stimulus and there's not enough economic activity to pick up the slack. Not by a mile. And then the banks would go under. 

We have evolved as a species! We no longer consider money in the same way as we did: it is no longer tethered to the laws of supply/demand. It's tied to politics. End of story.

Plan B will be the politicians turning on the bankers. 

The politicians can survive with new faces among the banking elite as they can continue sucking the wealth from the masses to finance their delusions.  The banking elite cannot survive with new faces among the political elite if they actually demand honesty and accountability from the bankers.

I was pretty certain the OBL spike (1375) on May 2 was the abc correction high (off the 666 low). Now?...not so sure.

But if we are speculating, its probably because retail is short :p

Making more Euros is like making more babies. First you get screwed, then you get bigger, then you squeeze out a delivery, and then you have post-partum depression.

The Euro is already screwed -- it is now in now in phase 2 where it grows bigger.

And when more austerity is forced on an ever militant Greek population?

The first hit/bailout is the best. Law of diminishing returns for each successive bailout....tell finally?

Since there are no consequences for "investing" in insolvent countries, because one is investing along side CB's and their interests prevail over the stability of the general population, this will go on and on until one day the general population says no more.

And there will be NO bailout on that day.

by that time bailouts will be meaningless as fiat currency in it's current form will be near worthless.....only the total loss of purchasing power by the populace will cause the type of action I think Lucy is alluding to....not bailouts themselves but their monetary hyperinflationary ramifications

actually i think it's the stupid japanese investors buying up.  since their funged and cooked PMI number came out hrs ago sans Sth Korea (better economy) struggling with good trade figures.

So we got some dodgy trades going on.
