Gold & Euro Tumble As Draghi Promises More, Stocks & USD Jump

Tyler Durden's picture

So the 'market' got what it wanted to start with - a rate cut into the red so banks can start charging for deposits - and despite an initial kneejerk higher in EUR and lower in stocks, they are now resuming to the path the central planners would like. EUR is down 40 pips and S&P futures up 4 points. The USD is rising (as EUR weakens) and there is significant pressure on gold and silver. Treasury yields are also sliding (despite the equity strength). The press conference is up next and Draghi has 'promised' to unveil more policy there... The reaction moves are fading as we it better be good

When this thing explodes, and you have essentially chaos all over the United States -- I wonder where the American middle and upper-middle classes go?  Every English-speaking country will be overwhelmed almost instantly, I could see Germany and Scandavia doing quite well.  They have a huge problem with a shrinking population, nothing a little civial war and reverse Atlantic Migration cannot fix.

I cannot see them being welcomed at that point.

If you are not already there,forget it.

IDK --

Germany has a fairly large demographics problem, if they are able to import younger people with kids who are educated and/or semi-independently wealthy I think they'd be welcome.  But the Obama phone lady, and those like her will get sent through the wood chipper.

As far as I can tell Obama phone types get sent to Scandinavia.
(To be fair the Obama phone lady later said O'bozo is a disappointment, although perhaps for wrong reasons ...)

Where I live the folks alive today REMEMBER their parents & grandparents talking about the last time the bankers screwed them over

They REMEMBER & are ready.

You keep throwing out random phrases like that and you might accidentally hit on the trigger phrase for the Fed sleeper agent who starts the worldwide global financial cascade.  Please be more careful in the future.

$5 raffle? You are generous. The rate we are going it won't even buy him a loaf here in a year or two. The part that miffs me just a little bit is the way metals are fucked with they won't be of much help by then.

Good opportunity to change money into gold or at least actual bills/coins. Pay to lend out fiat? You gotta be kidding..

gatorengineer's picture

how could you be surprised that gold is down on a no-print announcement?  Seriously.... I understand the love of PM's, I love em too, but this for a change would be the expected behavior.....

STAWKS by the way should turn red today.... as this was a check to the Fed, to hold tapering..... 

Remember this 6/4/2014, may well have been the top.......................

Hindenburg...Oh Man's picture

so they have finally discovered an "Easing" policy that makes the markets go higher and gold lower. That was their real endgame. 

gatorengineer's picture

Gold under $1200 within the week.... the hope of the ECB doing more is what kept it up.... Time to buy more at $1175.

asking4it2k's picture

All news is bad news for gold. The FED hates people investing in gold. So they tell their "primary dealers" on Wall Street to sell paper gold to artifically keep the price low. This has been their plan since 2011. It will eventually be exposed. Gold should be at least $2000+ if it was not manipulated by the FED. 

The FED wants no one to save and everyone into stocks, so when we crash were all in this together and crash together..

So, if the bank takes your money outright when you hold it on deposit.......then why the fuck would you keep your money in a bank?

Seems fairly fuckin' black and white to me.

Hughing's picture

Yep, TPTB want us to buy something real, indestrucable and cheap, like a house, land or GOLD!

agstacks's picture

Where is this cheap house you speak of?

heavy.metal's picture

An indestructible cheap house, mind you. Maybe it's made of gold?

gold just sits there doing nothing, at least my bond fund nets out 0.01% apr bitchez. #WINNING!

schatzi's picture

I'm glad gold is dropping - or stagnating at this price. I still have 30% of my assets in € cash. Time to buy gold. Lots of it. Bargain bin prices allows the investment slow coaches enough time to move into gold.


Draghi is fucking up the Eurozone, screwing over future generations that will need to pay back all this debt and screwing over the already squeezed middle classes. Bubble economics at its worst. The most blatant large scale theft ever undertaken.

youngman's picture

Its pretty amazing how gold andd silver are missing out on everything this last 6 months or so....everything else is setting records...stocks, bonds, IPOs...except gold and silver...the forgotten asset for some would think the MOMO guys would see this and start jumping in.....

SirTaxedAlot's picture

see you blokes at $800/oz

You have no vision......I would have said $600/oz. I am a follower of the prophet Nadler.

I would like to pay you to hold this $100,000. Do you think I could pay you a higher rate, if I deposit $500,000 ????

Falconsixone's picture

What deposits? If you keep feeding that goose USD's your going to get more gold.

My gold charts seem to be broken. There are these long green candles on them. I thought all the candles were supposed to be red?

Isn't this called defaulting on a loan? We'll pay you back, but we won't pay as much as we borrowed.

heavy.metal's picture

Same as when you buy debt with negative yield, like happened with German bunds sometimes. Not a default IMO.

I think if you're stupid enough to purchase that, you get exactly what you deserved.

Gold spiking now.
