One Minute News Summary

Tyler Durden's picture





 

US:  Futures are mostly negative in the early AM with a good portion of the trading world closed or scheduled for a half day.  Yesterday was lackluster in volume and direction as markets were not convinced by the jobless claims numbers (where even seasonally adjusted results exhibit seasonality) or stronger purchasing manager index results.

Europe:  Issuance begins anew next week, but the Italian issuance this week does not paint a good picture of the trends in European yields.  We believe the story will play out to its bitter end in 2011 and involve haircuts on sovereign bonds.

Asia:  With Tokyo closed and Hong Kong on a half day, markets are largely quiet.  The theme for Asia in 2010 will be China attempting to deflate a bubble without popping it and Japan continuing to manage growth at the zero bounds.

Don't forget India, the other, key ruBRIC.
Climbing away, almost touching it's 2006 highs of 21,000 again.
When this puppy crashes, we're going to hear a lot of whining.

This just in...Dom Perignon sales up massively.  NO!  Who would have thought it?  And I mean this just in, and I'm not kidding.  Just came over the Blow Horn.

I guess criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers just do not understand transparency...how disgusting they are when the light is put on them.  And as always,

CAPITAL CANNOT FORM IN BANKS AS CORRUPT AS THESE!

Our ruling class has been buying a lot too.

I bet Kobe beef did well this year. Lots of parties celebrating socialist take-overs of significant portions of the economy. If we reach 2014 intact, I predict interesting times...in the Chinese curse kinda way.

OT:

For those of you of a 1950s vintage, here’s a little tid-bid as it relates to one of the vilest people on this planet… We could have used a Julian Assange and Wikileaks back then. The following is a direct, recorded Henry Kissinger quote, speaking to his equally vile boss, Richard Nixon…. March 1973…. http://www.slate.com/id/2277744/

“…. The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern….”

If there ever was a miserable, cock sucking, ass hole, employed by the American People, Kissinger was it…. I knew it then and I know it now…. You think things are bad now….? Kissinger was the guy implementing American foreign policy back in the 70s….

Put that in your pipe and smoke it….

Best regards,

Econolicious

Highlighting the marked contrast between 'jews' (a people) and motherfucking conservative Israelis (a band of murderous, egomaniacal thugs).

Hey.  I really like the one minute thing.  These days, I don't have much of an attention spa--

HEY, LOOK! A BUNNY!

 

 Happy, Blessed New Year, everybody.  Please forgive my ZH transgressions as I try to be a kinder, gentler thread consumer/contributer in the days ahead.
