European Stocks And Bonds Plunge Most In A Month

Tyler Durden's picture




 

No matter what you are told by the mainstream media, peripheral government bonds have seen the worst 2-day sell-off in over a month with Spanish 10Y spreads +27bps this week so far and 2Y breaking back above 3% yield in a hurry. Just as we warned - this rally is not capital flowing back into 'tail-risk- removed govvies, it is simply fast money front-running actions and now momentum gains for the exits. Swiss 2Y rates fell their most in a month to -20bps as safety was sought. Europe's equity markets dropped for the third day in a row (hhmm more profit-taking we are expected to believe?) with the broadest BE500 index down 1.65% today and almost 3% off its recent high (the biggest 3-day drop in three months) and now at critical support once again. Equities are underperforming credit - as credit suffered the epic short-squeeze last week and we suspect remains a little gun-shy. EURUSD cracked back below 1.30 (down over 100pips to 1.2950 as Europe closes) and Europe's VIX jumped notably back above 23% - its highest in 6 weeks. GGBs lost their most in 3 months...

Europe's BE500 broad equity index suffering...

 

GGBs down the most in 3 months today...

I wouldn't know. I quit reading GSummers articles the last time he predicted QE wrong again.

Maybe, maybe not. There is NO fear today. Volume is low too. Don't play.

What we have here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. This is the way they wanted it. So they got it. I don't like it any more than you...

Helping out with distractions.  Tyler put up an amazing picture of marching Chinese yesterday.  I thought it was from Photoshop.

I guess not:

Where will all that wealth go?  That is the question.

There is nothing like a good crisis to channel the wealth from point A to desired point Z (using points in the middle as temporary stops to muddy the water).

All bounces over the last two days in equities were produced with help of capital made from stop busting right before the bounce.

The Bundesbank's fear of Fed tungsten bars

In response to public pressure, the Bundesbank, the German central bank, now wants to bring "parts" of Germany’s gold reserves home and verify their authenticity. Is fear rife in Frankfurt of counterfeit gold bars from the USA which are actually made of tungsten?

Todays drop will give the FED the chance to upgrade its software to where it can get within a 100th of yesterday's close by the close today. They did good yesterday.

Follow the US Dollar folks.  It is 57% weighted against the Euro.  When the Euro falls (likely), the US Dollar rises or so says the math.

And when the US Dollar rises, markets drop.

The Bull & Bear Mash, using the clowns scatter gun of Idiot, sorry, Elliott Wave (mis)analysis, hasn't been right in months

like your Prechter Godfather whose been calling ever more shrill for an epic decline for months and months ...calling it 20 weeks on the trot and getting it right once (ie. a 5% success rate, 95% failure rate) is not justification for contuning to pretend you have any predictive ability

Prechter should have packed up 25 years ago, you should pack up too, you've been wrong for WEEKS  

you village idioticians couldn't time an egg
