Draghi Defends 'Strong EUR Policy' - Press Conference Live Stream

Tyler Durden's picture

Following 'no change' in policy, we assume we will be treated to a plethora of confidence-building market-implied views of just how great everything is in Europe (apart from fundamentally). Of course, the Q&A is what we want to hear and his involvement in the Monti Paschi debacle, his view on Anglo Irish, his ignorance of currency wars ("I do not talk about currencies"), and just how great the repayment of LTRO funds are (even as European stocks and bonds move into the red for the year)...

  • *DRAGHI SAYS DATA SIGNAL FURTHER WEAKNESS IN EARLY 2013
  • *DRAGHI SAYS RISKS TO OUTLOOK REMAIN ON DOWNSIDE
  • *DRAGHI SEES UPSIDE PRICE RISKS FROM OIL PRICES, INDIRECT TAXES
  • *DRAGHI SAYS ECB WILL MONITOR MONEY-MARKET CONDITIONS

it's strong until their next crisis wave...then they'll weaken it.  This is just a pause so Japan can catch up

Did he just say - in a proud voice - that the funds to banks are UP ~45% over last year?

Is that a good development?

If he wants to "defend a strong Euro", then let the greeks sort themselves out with a Drachma motherfucker.

Maybe Ben is paying them off to keep the euro strong?

Whatever it takes to get the gold back

The EURO is only strong / weak relative to another currency (or to gold).

The EURO is strong because the the Dollar is weak.  Thus, we can say that the Dragon is losing the currency war to the Bernank.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State".

Except that those dangerous people who keep thinking won't believe it.

"We're not gonna tell you about the details of the MPS issue, because I might lose my job, and anyhow, its none of your business -- Bitch"

"It was *ME* who signed most of the papers of inspection" -- Really? -- No, Really? You Gimp!!!

"You should discount most of what you hear in blogs as 'NOISE' - and should be ignored - Bitchezzz"

DavidC's picture

I'm sorry, but how can anyone believe these hubristic fuckwits? I get more angry by the day.

Michael Gove, here in the UK, has been beaten down in his moves to change some of the educational qualifications to a Baccalaureate type qualification. His defeat was described earlier today as him showing strength, on the basis that was able to take on board the feedback and attempt to try another tack. I mean, really, come on.

Pathetic.

Guy from WSJ;

"Does the MSB issue mean that the ECB is not the best governing party for the sovereign banks"

...

...

"We allow the banks to post their (shitty) loans as collateral for funds from the ECB" -- Can you say, "Re-Hypothecation" Bitchezzzz
