It's Going To Be A Long Night (With Updates)

Tyler Durden's picture


As liquidity started to come back into FX markets this evening, it is very clear that humans and algos are reacting to every headline, rumor, and bloviation from Europe. In the last two hours, as this chart of EURUSD shows, while the range is small, the reactions are telling. It does appear from the EUR ramps that no-news-is-good-news for now - though evidently, the facts behind that 'no news' paint a different picture. As S&P 500 futures just opened, so EURJPY was ramped 70 pips to hold the only policy tool the Fed has left at unch (for now).




and the second S&P 500 futures opened (looking like they should gap down 10-15 points based on Treasury futures and FX carry), so 'they' ramp EURJPY 70 pips to save the day...


As ES, FX, and Bonds remain divergent... (the chart above is shown in the blue oval below!!)


UPDATE: S&P 500 Futures ramped to take out Friday's stops...


Charts: Bloomberg

I thought someone would say that, and it's not entirely untrue.  But I'm wondering what event has really sealed its fate.  You will recall that, initially, the euro appreciated and surpassed parity with the dollar.  Those were the gravy days.  What event really changed that?  Was it the 2008 financial crisis?

Revealed, the secret plan to airlift stranded Britons from Cyprus: Military to rescue up to 60,000 expats as island faces financial meltdown

Sun, 03/24/2013 - 19:34 | 3370027 toys for tits
toys for tits's picture

Thanks for the article post.

Lesley, who runs an animal sanctuary in the mountains above Limassol, is down to her last 64 euros. Before the crisis, many of her 15 dogs and 20 cats were sponsored – 20 euros a month each – and that, supplemented by cleaning work, was her chief source of income.

‘It’s drying up because people haven’t now got the money to sponsor animals. Who can blame them? 

At the moment I’ve got 50 euros in my purse and just 14 in the bank and that, sadly, is it,’ she said.

‘I am worried about feeding the animals. As it is, some of the dogs are, like me, living on pasta.’ 

Whatever the outcome of rescue talks, the crisis has already dealt an irreparable blow to Lesley’s livelihood – and that of many other Britons in Cyprus. Some expressed fears yesterday that they are days away from closing their businesses.

Central planning strikes again. Stupid lying cocksucking fuckfaces Troika.

Sorry to report that the dogs may soon be dining on Lesley.  Good thing she's not keeping cats.  They don't even have to be hungry.  At least a dog has some self respect.

I think the dogs might soon be dining on Lesley. And the people might soon be dining on the dogs. And then on the bankers.

read the comments...second most popular being "this stuff is all bullshit" but i'm agreeing with you ziggy. i think this one might be the proverbial "straw that breaks the camel's back." i'll be watching dollar in "dollar get's whacked yen surges." in my view that's the cue that "the euro is done." TOTAL chaos in Europe if that's the case. Borders will have to be closed, checkpoints set up...Germany is the only country with a draft, but France, Britain and Sweden have bad ass military's. Will there be a draft in the USA? We shall see...

Indeed everybody knows a deal will be struck, that's why markets were ho-hum about it all last week and why futures are still flat even after 2 additional days of negotiating.


 Every time the last several years the market had plunged on fiscal cliffs, government shutdowns, eurozone fears, Greece, the market has come roaring back.  We have all the same string of macro-disasters this year but the market has shrugged them all off.  A year ago we'd be down 10% by now with the barrage of negative news and crises hitting week after week.  But not now.  The sheeple have been conditioned.


Nothing can bring this market down.  Nothing short of total catastrophe, like the Fed hinting they might end liquitidy injections.

You would have to have been a fool to short this market over the weekend.  Really there were one of only two possible outcomes:  1) deal reached, market soars, or 2) deal not reached, market dribbles higher on deal "hopes."  The market will go higher, the deal-no-deal drama only impacts when, tomorrow or Tuesday.


Has anybody not yet figured out how this works?  I'm just surprised there are still suckerable shorts out there.  Guess there have to be otherwise knowledgeable players wouldn't still be able to front run these moves over and over and over again.
