European Stocks Plunge To Worst December Since 2002

Tyler Durden's picture

Between Draghi's disappointment, Kuroda's un-dovishness, China's currency war, and flailing faith in The Fed (as policy errors loom), it appears European stocks were not the "no brainer" investment everyone promised them to be after all. December's 5% plunge was the worst for this time of year since 2002 (2nd worst on record).

 

 

Looks like we are going to need more QE or this ship is going down.

Ehh, I don't see Trump having VP Hillary, Now if it were Jeb I would totally agree but Trump is getting attacked from all sides if he were truly in Bed with Hillary he would be the portrayed by all Media as the next coming of Christ but that is not the case.

The Dutch AEX is more than 4% up this year. Any way we are going to end this year with a bang, with or without firework. Happy New Year!

P.S. Look at the Nasdaq and see where it is today. The couple of months have not been so well but that was caused by the weather. My prediction is that it will go to 6000 next year. One big buy recomendation on all these stocks: TSLA, FB, AAPL and NFLX.

 Zerohedge never explained why Zerohedge is still trying to frighten people and refusing to tell them what is really going on. https://s3.amazonaws.com/khudes/Twitter12.15.15.2.pdf    If Zerohedge were a legitimate source of news, they would tell you how the power transition model, with 95% accuracy, and the coalition for the rule of law headed by the United States minus the Federal Reserve, has defeated the Network of Global Corporate Control identified by Vitali, Glattfelder, and Battiston of ETH Zurich  http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1107/1107.5728v2.pdf

The people of the United States consistently prefer for the US to act jointly with other nations in foreign affairs (see footnote 76).  http://www.kahudes.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/ilsaJournal1.pdf

That is how I informed General Dunford, on behalf of the Board of Governors of the World Bank and IMF, that there was an interregnum in the United States, and that his military rule in the United States was over.
