Meanwhile In European Financials...

Tyler Durden's picture


Rajoy tried to assert some confidence in Spain this morning (#Fail) but the realization of the potential for fraud tape-bombs being everywhere in Europe's financial and political elite appears to be pricing in. All five of Italy's largest banks are halted currently (all down 8-12% from Friday's open) as the broad stock markets continue to sink (despite short-selling bans - so don't blame them nasty bearish speculators). Even more dramatic is the blow-out in European financial credit spreads. The Subordinated financials spread has been on the rise from the first day of 2013 - and has now seen its biggest 3-week loss in over 14 months! There is a way to play this trend in the US...


European sub financials have smashed wider all year - biggest loss in 14 months


with Spanish stocks plunging back to bonds reality (and EUR still disconnected)...


as Spanish bond spreads start to decompress from a previous unreality...

all of which has happened post-LTRO as that free-money may just have had the effect we said...


as Italian Bank stocks (all banned from short-selling) continue to plunge...


and if you want to play this trend - EUFN (the US-based European Financial ETF) has not pulled lower (yet) as risk increased in Europe...

Damn them evil speculators selling the banks. Don't they know that the Spanish banks are well capitalized and are a good investment?

They won't, unfortunately.

They can't actually.

Markets are valued in currencies and currencies would have to rise in value for markets to crash.

In case you haven't noticed its currencies that are crashing, which is also pushing markets higher as markets are valued inversely to currencies.

Very simple really it's a cash crash. So stock markets will soar.

Another way to play this is to buy Treasuries.

Draghi and Euro politicians been trying to pull a Billie Batts to Tommy D from Goodfellas:

"I fuck kids like that in the ass in the can.  in the ass in the can!!!"

"Come on, you fuckin feeling strong?"

"Relax, don't get nervous."

But Batts ended up in the trunk of that car and woke up coughing blood to Tommy D holding a knife.

Tommy D at dinner with mom: "Anyways Ma, that reminds me I need to borrow this knife."

Rajoy has received the "Dreaded Vote of Confidence" from Merkel.    He is doomed.

Sell any rallies and go short all you can!  Remember, the crash in 2007-09 took over 15 months from beginning to end and there were plenty of mini-rallies to sell during this time.  Let's crash this mother****** !!

now if we could just clean up the Wall Street massive payoffs to Washington...then we would be making headway. I saw where the new Secretary of State is a director of a couple banks...having also been paid a couple million in between jobs from some oligrach bank!
