    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Mario Draghi's "More Policy Actions To Come" ECB Press Conference - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


Well he delivered NIRP... now it's time to really deliver. Having promised in the press release to announce further policy measures in the press conference, markets are holding back their enthusiasm for now. While we have already explained why any QE action she undertakes (whether small-scale SME ABS buying, LTROs, or large-scale sovereign bond buying) will not have any direct positive impulse to the real economy, we are sure even the merest hint of it will run stock markets higher, taking out stops all the way...

@zerohedge:  Doesnt the ECB steralize its purchases?  What are they going to do... buy all the shitty sovereign bonds and sell bunds?  Sounds like an epic plan to me.

It's pretty clear no?

Step 1: Europe buys the US bonds with money it hasn't got.

Step 2: America buys the EU bonds with money it hasn't got.

And the economy doesn't need to recovery because clearly the recession ended in 2009 and it hasn't stopped growing ever since.

SD, you are missing the forest for all those fresh, new trees

what was the situation of the european banks before they formed the ECB? they were chockerblock stuffed with USTs. because Uncle Sam promised they would be "as good as gold"

all in all, in the greater scheme of things, the ECB and the EUR are a way to get out of this dollar exposure, and to be more outcome independent

has the aggregated dollar exposure of all the ECB's NCBs decreased or increased? check yourself and see

you either produce something others value, or you make promises. where is the eurozone? in the exporting surplus area

growth? what for? in order to accumulate more IOUs?

If they're doing this because there's a 'recovery' what would they be doing if there WASN'T?!

Isn't it something?!! Six years into this shit, and they are still dreaming up programs and crap to keep the ponzi going. Isn't it about time the world pulls it's collective head out of it's ass, and admit this shit ain't working, and never will!!!

isnt NIRP deflationary....you know....since it steals money from savers and leaves them with even less purchasing power.

The savers just have to throw their money into te Dax and get themselves 30% a year.

Bullish for Germans* taking their money abroad.  Thailand, here they "come"!

* Germans have affordable education, health care and 4-5 weeks of annual vacation. They also prefer to use cash over credit.  They like to save.  So they can afford to be Globetrotters - and they are.  Like Belgium and some other small EU countries, they also prefer selling arms, rather than use them as invaders in other countries.  Good for their MIC business, w/o the blowback that the USSA generates.

Savers don't purchase. That's the problem. Their purchasing power is essentially irrelevant. But the capital drain they create by removing money from circulation is significant, on the margins.

This cunt keeps talking about price stability, so price's going up is more stable than prices coming down? Or am I missing something?
