Meanwhile In Spain...

Tyler Durden's picture


Spain's IBEX stock market index has plunged by around 6% this week - the biggest weekly drop in six months. Spanish sovereign bond spreads are flat-lining, entirely ignorant of this devastation; and of course, EURUSD continues to surge. The EUR surge and IBEX plunge coincidentally began at the same time (Wednesday) as Rajoy's alleged kickback scheme was uncovered... oh yeah, and Spain lifted its short-selling ban (oops). Spanish stocks are now red for 2013...

Worst drop in IBEX in six months...


as IBEX plunges on the week...


and a total disconnect from bonds and EURUSD...

That euro/usd is heading to 1.40. Something has to give. I think Israel may have to drop some more bombs and spark something to get a nice old fashioned run to the USD.

Patience grasshoppers! Enjoy the games at play and take the free money they are handing you, then get out of the market before everyone else and sit back and enjoy the collapse!

Fonz isnt it crazy that its been ripping so high so fast (just look at that iex chart) especially this late into the rally...?

You think good ole Tom Stolper is fearing for his job? Really he was like one of those coolers the old casinos used to employ in Vegas.

Hes useless without the perfect record- guys who are only *mostly* wrong are a dime a dozen on wall street, but a guy who could get it wrong always, now that was special...

He is too busy giving that ugly dude Abe Joseph Cohen a foot rub to notice he got one right.

Something has to give soon.

WTI and the 10yr not buying in today. I think they are trying to load the boat with people shorting the 10yr before they decapitate them.

Abbey Joseph Cohen made an appearance today?  Really?

If it saw its shadow, that's a 100% indication of about six more weeks of iTulips.

Far be it from me to correct you TIS but it "Abe" not Abbey. His Dad named him Abe because he was born with a beard and looked just like Lincoln.

dont worry, the criminals would never let our market plunge .50 percent, let alone 6 plus percent.


isnt it hilarious how we wiped 94 pts off the dow the past 2 days and these criminals are going to open the market up with all those losses wiped away and then some additions

Spanish yield spreads have flat lined? Thank Ben Bernenk! He is certainly adding billions of Spanish sovereign to the Fed balance sheet to improve the credit quality of the shit he owns.

Rajoy has been taking kick backs for years as he imposes austerity on a country with 27 percent employment.    Can you say dickhead?


Spain Rajoy will address corruption scandal on Saturday

(Reuters) - Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy will speak publicly on Saturday regarding media reports alleging that he and other leaders of the ruling People's Party received payments out of a slush fund fed by private donations.

What do you prefer, a strong currency or a strong (but utterly bullshit) "market".  Lots of fees, commissions, and bonuses being skimmed in that strong "market".

Am I the only one that would prefer the former?  I purchase my inputs with currency, not stocks, but then I actually know how to produce something of real value.

For Ireland the Euro / Sterling rate is all important.


The higher the the Euro rises against Sterling the more neutron bombs are dropped on this bog....

The euros role seems to be all about the extraction of rational domestic demand both during credit inflation and money deflation periods.

EUR will remain strong because the ECB marks physical gold holdings to market.  Regardless of what the shills say there is a de jure gold standard at work in the world.  When it becomes de facto the Eurozone will be able to revalue gold upward many multiples and recapitalize sovereigns with a form of money that has no counterparty risk.  End of debt trouble for the Eurozone and end of the USD.

Ever wish someone that has inside access like Farage would bring some nice hardware to work and blow the likes of Romfueypoy into small fucking pieces?  That's childsplay compared to what they have in mind for the rest of us.  Sorry ass motherfuckers.
