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...

Cyprus president offered to resign while in the EU, IMF meeting, which makes one ask, who's his boss?

Al-Khateeb, leader of FSA resigned. So some serious noise has to be made to push this to the background.

Don't panic - simple cosmetic operation. The front-office image was no longer reflecting the back-office reality, so they just made some readjustments to make it all look a little bit more consistent.

Yup, if Wily Coyote can hover in mid air, there's no reason why the Euro can't do the same.

Drink on "bomb".  We'd all be too drunk too fast on "gold" or "Germany" or "deposits" or "run".

Bomb will get us pleasantly lit.

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?

That was the big event in 2009 and hardly anyone noticed!

Europe is right next to the middle east so "intractable problems" come with the territory.

They succeeded in yoking together an ox and a donkey, which never works as it puts too much strain on the donkey.

Do not plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard.  It defiles the fruit.

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

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.
