Japan's Nikkei Closes Below 17,000 As Hong Kong Money-Markets 'Break' Again

Tyler Durden's picture

With Hong Kong Dollar spot little changed (but pressing the weaker end of its peg band) and 12-month forwards suggesting notable weakness/depegging to come, it appears that the Hong Kong interbank lending debacle is far from over. While overnight money appears stable, 1-week Yuan HIBOR is up 370bps at 11.90%, and 1-month and 3-Month HKD HIBOR just snapped higher ( to Jan 2013 highs and July 2010 highs respectively). It appears comments from Hong Kong Monetray Authority's Norman Chan that it's just a matter of time before outflow of funds lead to the local currency hitting the low end of the peg sparked heavy medium-term demand for liquidity. Offshore Yuan is crepping back weaker (as is crude) after an early bounce.


And while the levels are not as exciting the relative spike is notable in HK interbank markets.





But for now spot is stable (albeit at the weak-end of the peg band)...


After an early bounce, crude is retumbling as stress hits HKD...


Offshore Yuan is giving up more short squeeze gains...



And Japan's Nikkei 225 closes below 17,000 for the first time since September...

Lucky tonight. Can Zerohedge report. World Bank, IMF and the fucking BIS (Bank of International Settlements). These cunts are up to no good. Be aware. 

Going to bed before my nuts are strung up. After 11 years, I can stay at home and get away with shit. Her words, it's time to go to bed. She always finds me on the Landi or on the back porch. I tell me her, want me to go back to the strip club lifestyle? I win debate and would never embark in that lifestyle again. She is the queen bee.

No one could replace her. I mean no one. Mrs Atomizer is the jewel of my life. It only took two failed marriages two find her. She is a pistol. A type personally like me. I love her. 

Just got busted to goto bed. Goodnight Zerohedge.

Ms. OldPhart, came to my den of iniquity, and said, It's three in the fuckin' morning and you have work tomorrow (in a shreakingloudvoice), [inhale, exhale *cough*]  39 years and it's like they know what you're up to when they're asleep.

Have to sign off now.

 What is this, The Price is Right? Whoever gets closest to the actual price without going over, or under in this case, goes to the jackpot round?

 Time to Spin The Big Wheel! (Hey you Old Phart, quit playing grab-ass with Bob's Honeys...Security!)

music:  think of "me and misses jones, by billy paul, and change it to "me and mister yellen"  :-)   Sing it with me people :-)

  Me and mister yellen, we got a thing thats going on.  We both know that its wrong, but its much too strong to, let it go now. :-)

But, me and mister yellen have a problem, so I have another song now :-(    From Ace, called how long...

Well, your friends with their fancy persuasion
Don't admit that it's part of a scheme
But I can't help but have my suspicions
'Cause I ain't quite as dumb as I seem
And you said you was never intendin'
To break up our singing this way
But there ain't any use in pretendin'
It could happen to us any day

How long has this been goin' on
How long has this been goin' on


answer: since 1913...

Mr yellen broke my heart, back to the chicago bathhouse for me...

I know...one of the better books around...I understand what you are saying...in fact, 5 secondsafter 1776 we were yet again under brithish rule...nothing new under the sun.  They lost the war of guns, but took it back with rothchild money.  In a matter of about 5 seconds.  :-(

 Too deep for most people tho, so I just have fun with it all..and I love music, dont we all?

In deep shit right now. Lie down, go to bed. Yes, many people don't understand the City of London relationship with United States. It's not a good relationship. Despite what the Jew media tells us.

You're getting me aroused...in about five years from now.

Old guys take a little longer, and wtih HER, even more longer.

One last note. Microsoft and Google are going to die by a thousand paper shreds. Think Enron accounting. Remember? Burn baby, Burn. The shell companies are transparent. You must think we're low fruit hanging muppets to invest. 

Bad mistake on your part.

That fucking Jim Cramer will poke you into stock market derivatives to bail out World Bank, IMF. Giving money away to jump start a economy is difficult. These bastards need to fleece you to made their plan seem viable. After it gets fucked up again, they'll just ask for more money. Wash, rinse, and repeat. Shhhhhh. You cannot tell the peasantry.

Bullish or Bullshit?


Both the PBOC and ECB prop desks had a busy day.  Perhaps we should send them some coffee and donuts to help them out in their buying spree?

The damage will be held in check; the big boys aren't stupid and they have a BIG Silver-Lining Playbook.  Look for other ways to prosper rather than counting on the financial system taking a HUGE shit....

LoL! Monkey markets.  A market ran by monkeys would be a huge improvement.
