Eurogroup Head Says He Did Not Say What He Said

Tyler Durden's picture


That thing Diesel-BOOM very, very clearly said earlier? He did not say it. After all, can't have the market getting any ideas that reality may be slowly coming back to the basket case that is Europe:


So not only are European depositors still impairable, because sadly Dijsselbloem was dead serious in his Reuters interview, but the new Eurogroup head pulled a Juncker and confirmed "it is serious" in the process losing all credibility too.

To summarize Diesel-BOOM: "If the market is red, you have to lie."

Forget Risk-On-Risk-Off, it's Template-On-Template-Off now...

His subsequent official clarifying remarks on the Eurogroup's website:

Statement by the Eurogroup President on Cyprus


25/03/2013 - Statement


Cyprus is a specific case with exceptional challenges which required the bail-in measures we have agreed upon yesterday.


Macro-economic adjustment programmes are tailor-made to the situation of the country concerned and no models or templates are used.

He said what he said, but he was wrong to begin with.  Most of the large Euro economies would have simply bailed out the banks without a second thought, and throttled their parliaments to vote for it until they complied.  The only problem with Cyprus is that the banking sector was 7x the size of their entire economy so even if they sold every last Cypriot into perpetual slavery they still would be insolvent.  Thus this was the solution they came up with.

IRELAND is the blueprint.  Fuck the taxpayers, and make them pay for the bankers.  That will always be the blueprint as long as there are enough taxpayers to get it done.

With little financial upside, depositing money in a bank is like placing a bet in a casino where the only excitement comes from finding out how much money you are going to lose.

I'll take odds that the ECB and the wise council of EU elders (/s) increases deposit insurance on € denominated deposits within a week to two at most.

Italy & Spain will break regardless (they're already broken; it's just that the true depth and intractability of their economic and financial depression will become highly visible to even the commoners despite all the Pollyanna-speak by the EU bureaucrats).

The extent of the sepsis that is present in the French economy and intra-nation banking system will also soon become apparent despite bureaucratic Pollyanna-grams, as well.

Look for massive pressure to be exerted on € denominated money markets, as the next phase of the EU's crisis.

You can't un-ring a bell and you certainly can't un-crack an egg.

I have no doubt that some of the Southern European socialist-types are starting to eyeball this situation and think "why didn't I think of this" -- of course before they even think about proposing it in their own country they'll make sure their own deposits, and those of their most important political donors, are far out of reach.

So many people are buying into that mentality lock, stock and over-leveraraged, over-a-barrel sure of it that it gives me an evil chuckle the more I hear it repeated.

We have moved beyond the "dumb money" tell into the "you have to be brain damaged if you believe markets can NEVER go down again" tell.

No offense taken. I'm not saying that the markets can never go down. I think the markets are going to crash. I should've said that it seems like policy makers believe that markets should never be allowed to go down ever again. I thought we were at a top in this market, and we probably are, but it seems like TPTB are hell bent on never letting a negative outcome happen due to the fact that rising equity markets, in their eyes, are a real time indicator of their policies working. When everyone buys into that mentality that's when the market is at the greatest risk of a crash.

For a while now the pattern has been:

Markets up; Volume down.  Markets down; Volume up.

What was different about today?

Markets down; Volume down.

The Bernanke Put is the equivalent of poison to the markets. It literally destroys the corrective feedback cycle the markets depend on. If we now start to see more Markets down; Volume down.

We are getting close to the point where the markets will one day, effectively, go bidless regardless of Up or Down

But by then, it will be too late, just like Cyprus, to get your money out.

" Dijsselbloem is considered a lightweight, even here in the Netherlands."

And you speak on what authority for us Dutchmen exactly?

Btw, since you are dutch as well you should have seen this coming. Dijsselbloem was very clear with the SNS debacle that he intended to do this very thing sooner than later, and I agree with him. Too bad all bondholders (and the ECB) cried so loudly he had to go back on that one, not this time though, and hopefully not in the future.

Time for TBTF to end, and even more than time to leave the taxpayers (of who most of us never even had anything to do with any of the banks involved) alone for a change.

Yes, and for all I care you´re welcome to have it. I do hope Ben Bernanke grows a bionic hand in that case because having all ten fingers firmly lodged on the CTRL-P button won´t suffice, although he must be having a raging boner from all of this stuff he could probably use.

p.s. I personally believe money from honest savers will flow to small local banks they know and trust to treat it well.

This is hopefully the start of the end of TBTF.

We do our banking through a local bank with a grand total of three offices.

And even so ... we do NOT let any excess money sit in the account for any longer than it takes to make a visit and withdraw the cash.

Murphy was an optimist.

Ben Bernanke is POS.

The EU just fucked the Russians for $ 10 billion ... which is only a good idea if you execute a nuclear first strike immediately afterwards.

Since the EU now has the military capabilities of Botswana ... Let's see how  the "Fuck'em & forget'em" approach works out for the EU.

History will prove these idiots wrong, given a bit of time.  Right now the market is totally goverened by algo based trading and is detached from reality.  The funds are perfectly happy to let their decisions be made by computer programs rather than use some common sense and logic.  Uncle Ben has assured them there is very little risk in the markets  - so why would you ever sell?  All selloff attempts for the last 4 months have been immediately turned around either the same day or the next day no matter what the news is.  

Any and all events that would normally signal caution are viewed as massively bullish.  Individually they would not signal panic time either but when you add them all up and ignore any and all risk metrics eventually it will lead to massive panic selling.  Just waiting on the trigger event.

Market is totally detached from risk metrics due to over computerization of trading.  Once the algo's make a turn higher off of an intraday selloff it almost never sells again.  You can average into the push all you want short but they never really let go again.  Anyone attempting that will just average to a larger loss.  That in and of itself is not normal behavior, especially after such a big push higher.  

Rather than 2-3 day corrections we get 2-3 hour corrections which undo themselves the same day or the next AM on the big gap and run higher - again very, very abnormal behavior for the markets but that is just what they are doing right now.

Question for those familiar with German voting process... has the uncertainty been resolved in the voting laws since the high court decision last summer?  I have been wondering ever since I read the following if Merkel would be able to retain power regardless of the voting constituency.

The World from Berlin: 'Germany Does Not Have a Valid Voting Law'

Germany's Constitutional Court on Wednesday ruled that the laws governing elections in the country are unconstitutional. The verdict leaves Germany without valid voting laws just over a year before the next scheduled general elections. Commentators say Chancellor Merkel's coalition is at fault.

With just over one year to go before Germans are scheduled to go to the polls in a general election, the ruling puts the pressure on Chancellor Angela Merkel to find a solution. It also means that Merkel's government, despite signs that her party is no longer willing to blindly follow her lead when it comes to efforts to save the euro, is not likely to fall prior to those elections in 2013. Without a valid voting law, the German president would surely refuse to dissolve the government no matter how many conservative rebels there are.

Maybe I'm too simplistic, but if a bank which holds my money makes mal-investments and loses my money, I should lose my money, and not expect other people to have to cover for me. Seems like that would restore fiduciary responsibility to the banks pronto.

You didn't invest with them, you lent to them. They are obliged to give you back your money even if they made a bad investment. On the other hand, they don't have to give you any of the profits if they make a good investment. See how that works?


Bank examiners are supposed to inspect the books every 3 months and shut down a bank that is insolvent, even by 1 Euro. Never, ever is a bank supposed to be able to get this far under water.

Wonder what the bank examiners have been doing for the last few years?

Ah yes, you are correct, it's called 'regulatory forbearance". Of course, it was supposed to be used in extraordinary cases not as standard operating procedure (and not followed by ignoring market reality). In short, there will always be an excuse for not following their own rules. Iceland is looking better and better to me all the time.

Diesel-BOOM, the rest of the EU/EZ-crats and every EU/EZ government can clarify the issue very easily.

Simply issue a public statement that rules out indefinitely any further expropriations from depositors' accounts across the EU/EZ.

I urge them to do so immediately, if not sooner...before the close of business today.


Absent such a cast iron assurance, one can only conclude that Diesel-BOOM is lying, having taken a look at the markets and serious risk of a bank run across Europe.


Edit: having just read the new EU statement, I do not believe it goes anywhere far enough. Expropriations have to be ruled out for the indefinite future.
