Moody's Says Provisions Of Fin Reg Reform Bill May "Trigger Disruptions" In Credit Market

Tyler Durden's picture

Not like anyone cares what Moody's thinks but if even the rating agency can not spin some data in a benign way, there likely are some major sandtraps in there.

From Reuters:

U.S. lawmakers hammered out a historic
overhaul of financial regulations as dawn broke over the nation's
capital on Friday, handing President Barack Obama a major domestic
policy victory.

"Moody's supports
the many measures in the financial regulatory reform bill that enhance
the transparency and accountability of the credit ratings process and
is committed to implementing them in the most effective way possible,"
Moody's said in an e-mail statement to Reuters.

the same time, we remain concerned that certain provisions of the bill
could have unintended consequences or trigger disruptions in the credit
" the statement said.

Moody's triggers disruptions in the credit market.

Jail them.

DosZap's picture

Yes Tyler there are.........

2000 more pages of Regs,and no one knows what's there, except these clowns.

Anecdotes I have heard thus far, any bank may be closed(on a whim), and personal loans(to individuals, may be turned down, no matter your credit history).

This IMHO means, get ready for ONE more NEW FED AGENCY to do nothing but roam around, and stick their noses into your's, and my personal accounts, and transactions.

I personally am going to remove all funds(except for monthly needs), convert them to Cad/Aussie dollars......, and move them .

Had enough of this regimes tyranny.Stay tuned, more to come.

I am amazed these folks think that they can continue to destroy our lives, and their will be no repercussions.

There will be. Seems like they are taking down the country on purpose, and pushing us INTO a Depression..........

There are a few lights in the coal mine(d)s of the US Congress, but taken together they inform an Idiotocracy...doing the same lame processes that guarantee paralysis of full effect.

You only need a small handful of like-minded souls (circa 5-6% if you have been reading CD's "Welcome to the Insane Assylum" - CD it's an epic and thank you) to change the world but as we are probably just clawing our way above 1% would you mind passing me another beer...

No reform is serious that doesn't tax derivatives to high heaven.  

downwiththebanks's picture

Well, if the 'personal accounts' of living parasites weren't screwing over the world with destructive risk-taking, no reform would be necessary to save the capitalist system.

But they done blew it up.

Consequently, there is a global capitalist depression going on right now, managed and overseen by the bankers and the politicians they wholly own (as evidenced by this ridiculous piece of trash they're calling 'reform' today).

probably a health-care reform provision buried in the silly thing...

Yeah, we wouldn't want to mess with our highly healthy credit market.

ANOTHER... Screw Amerika "Reform" Bill...

I suppose the stock market will not be effected, in their opinion?

what's moody's opinion on the euro/yen?

that is the only relevant data in this farce of a market

so effing absurd.   all of it.

If you would like to throw up today, go to page 436 of the FinReg bill.

The Treasury has the authority to give these criminals $4 Trillion if it needed to prevent a financial collapse.

Blue Water's picture

Won't be enough, we'll just be $4 Trill deeper in debt.  You can "Bank" on that!

AccreditedEYE's picture

I don't think it would ever happen... At that point, the market no longer becomes the government. Everybody packs it in. (sad to say, yes, it can get worse than what we have now)

DosZap's picture

They have already printed enough to send countiries w/sound economies, and reserves, to the table to GET rid of us.

Add 4 Trillion, which they WILL do, will just cause every nation holding our paper to cash out..........just like everone is scrambling to not be the LAST one holding Euro 1's.

Euro 2, is being planned..............a North Euro, and a South Euro.

For real.

That looks to me to be the amount that is authorized per corporation, must take into account inflation. They may need to be bailed out next year.

They can take any paper they want.

Can you spell "Quantitative e, a, s, i, n, g?"


(I know they were taking stuff before, but it was illegal under their charter to do so, even under their emergency act.)



p.s. thanks for pdf

There is no $4 Trillion that can exist since the medium of exchange can only be real if it represents stored or soon earned receipts of goods and services. The US Treasury  might as well be issuing the green cheese of which the  Moon  consists. Madoff was prologue to the Geithner, Bernanke, Summers, Greenspan..the Fantastic Four Horsemen of the Apocalype of Confidence.

watching this euro/yen program control the markets is maddening

eats at my core

scumbags have total control over the world so long as this program is allowed to operate

and of course it is a GS/JPM/NYFED program

if it weren't them, they'd have shut it down a long time ago

it ain't like its not completely f***ing obvious or anything

jeez.   sickening.   those creeps need to be shut down.

assumptionblindness's picture

Reuters needs to verify accuracy of the statement that they included in their story.  It was likely taken out of context.  We all know that Moody's doesn't predict anything until AFTER the fact. 

To refer to FinReg as "a major domestic policy victory" for Obama is a friggin' joke!

DosZap's picture

FinReg, is just another term for MAKE WORK, and another way to get into your LIFE.(up close & real personal).

Maybe I need some help here... How could disruption be a bad thing?

Eric Cartman's picture

If anyone knows about triggering disruptions in the credit market, it's Moody's. By the way, I'm got a few Jan 11 puts on Moody's if anyone would like to join in =).
