"U.K. Chancellor Osborne says government will not run away from debt problems, winding down of debts holding back growth."

Yeah, we'll just print away all our troubles.

"U.K. Chancellor Osborne says no excessive volatility in markets today"

Wink-wink, nudge-nudge // short our currency, guys.

At 1.5 the Pound is still massively-fuck-me-in-the-ass overvalued. I hope to see it nearer 1.2 some day. :)

Why are markets reacting so negatively to the Italian election numbers?  I thought Europe was fixed?  Doesn't Draghi have Italy's back?

Europe becoming unfixed just as sequestration set to hit in the US.  Bad news for anyone listening to CNBS.

Two words Mr. Bernanke.  MOAR QE.

Two more words.  Weimar Republic.

Tell me about it.

I got crucified years ago,importing in dollars and selling in pounds.

Went from 2.05 to 1.05 to the pound in the space of a year.

Lead time on my stuff was six months landed in the UK.

If they can get Berlusconi in, they will never vote him out until he dies.

If he can just avoid hot tubs..

Doesn't take long for the NWO bug to wear off now does it?

Look, we all know how this is going to work this week;


Month end, sequester, week full of central-bankers-on-parade to tell us how they are not really anywhere close to tightening even in the face of better-than-expected-everything-indicators.  If the ES has not made a new all-time nominal high by the end of the week then jobs are on the line (jobs as in bonuses).


Corruption at its finest, but this will be a history lesson some day in how to ram a hot rod up any naysayer’s ass, and how to create the universe’s largest global short ban in order to change not the fundamentals, but the psychology.  The message is clear – conform or be destroyed – apparently govt’s have figured out there is no challenge to their authority and will continue to steamroll all negative sentiment that is based in reality.


PS - dont forget all of the after market "solutions" to the sequester

Wrong.  The US Treasury is planning on sequester happening and for markets to be crazy later this week.  They moved the auctions up 1 day (usually Tues-Thurs, this week is Mon-Weds) and will be settling all this debt on Thursday.  Settling on Thursday has never been done before.  Usually, these settlements occur in the following week.

Brilliant observation, 100% spot on.

You can keep wrapping more gauze around a gangrenous limb, but someday it's going to have to come off or the whole body dies.

"Can you say unlimted currency swaps?"

Yes, but for some reason when it comes out of my mouth it sounds like 'time-to-go-buy-metals'...  ;)

Is the mojo of a "One People's Public Trust" rising... or is this just my imagination.

I have an erection in tandem with Silvio right now.

Who knew that this Monday would be such an eventful day. Thanks for all the fish. :)

Whoever GS wants to win will win. They are probably bored and just creating a few trading opportunities along the way.

OT  but Jim Grant was off the hook on Bloom this morning.  I've never seen him look more calm and certain about anything like he did this morning.  Gold standard bitchezz!

Ungrateful peasants lack appreciation for what Goldman has done to save them. /s

Temporalist's picture

Peasants is such a dirty word.  They are called "Consumers" in the parlance of newspeak.

Edward Fiatski's picture

Very nice, my thoughts exactly, although I do prefer the term "PEASANT" as it is more derogatory and follows "Tradition" of millenia of servitude by the unthinking massses.

Impossible to trade this crap.

disabledvet's picture

Not impossible to sell it though. "the crap" that is...

Who proofs the copy for these articles anyway? I sometimes wonder if they are created by the same editorial algos the Tylers have dissed.


The copy line that now reads: LATEST SENATE FROM RAI: BERLUSCONI 31.6, MONTI: 29.4, GRILLO 24.9, MONTI 9.2




Really Tylers, how do you let so many typos get by on so little amounts of copy? Fess up - humans really don't write these articles, do they? No human could possibly miss the repetition of the name Monti twice in the same 12-word copy line.

Don't be a clown and tell us you sit with your mouse over BUY/SELL and F5 spam ZeroHedge.

Get yourself a Bloomberg terminal if you want FLAWLESS PERFORMANCE.

Edward, the difference between me and you is that I'm a professional - and you aren't.


And because ZH positions itself as a professionally prepared site, I expect them to be professional in their presentation. I've seen relentless typos changing the entire meaning of sentences and content. It's unprofessional.


As a college professor once told me, typos are the intellectual equivalent of belching at the dinner table.


So go tell your lawyer, or your physician, or your stock/financial funds manager, that typos in your legal case, or medical report, or financial orders, don't matter. Let me know how that works out for you.


Edward Fiatski's picture

Get fucked, asswipe. A professional with an above-average IQ would spot the typo and calmly, kindly point it out. A real profession would shut the fuck up and let others act on the mistake and buy into the sell off.

Seeing as Tyler doesn't charge a subscription, yet, everything you have said is irrelevant.

Mike Shedlock had a good comment on this topic "Do not believe anything until it is officially denied."

Lewshine's picture

You guys are such friggin Boyscouts!! You think (that's the first problem), that Berlosconi will sneak in a win against Goldman's golden boy - NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!!! The key holders of the kingdom have a job, its to make it look like a race...Just like they make it look like the US market MIGHT be hanging on a thread - NOT! Let me put all your witty sppeculation to rest. Goldman's man will eek out a win - but before that happens, US equities will close higher. Look at me - This is my shocked face!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Fawkin tourist - all of ya!
