All Hell Breaking Loose In FX On Reports Of Possible Blast In Macau

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Following the two theatrical speeches eaelier, we are absolutely nowhere closer to a resolution now than we were 2 hours ago. Perhaps this is why the market is not too happy and as of minutes ago, the USDJPY tumbled to new all time lows (except for that illiquid print from March 17) of 77.89, with the market set to test Noda's repeated bluster that he will finally do something against the "one way Yen." We are not holding out breath. And to confirm that a perfect storm of sorts is on the horizon, adding to the increasing illiquidity in the US and Europe, is the news out of China that 7 day repo rates just surged by 160 bps overnight, the most since July 5, to 6.80%, as the market awaits the selling of CNY 1 billion in 1 year bonds at 10 am Chinese time. If $155 MM of a liquidity outflow can move the needle in China by almost 2%, then we are in deep trouble.

Update: the BOJ may have just intervened. Just look at that chart

Update 2: perhaps not an intervention as we are now getting reports that Macau has been hit by a blast according to Xinhua

 

Crazy stuff people

i was on an elevator car alone headed to a hotel lobby when it stopped at another floor for a pickup. when the doors opened there were two attractive young ladies waiting...unsure of the direction of the elevator, one of the ladies asked "going down"....after about a 3 second pause with me looking at her intently, i declared "maybe later..??". the lady looked dumbfounded at me for a few seconds and then after realizing her comment and my reply she got a chuckle out of it...i then informed them that it was indeed headed down to the lobby. on the ride down, i could hear giggling/chuckling and when we got off at the lobby, there was actually laughter between the two of them as we walked different ways...ah, the subtle wit in life is the truly the best.

Did Ron Paul ever smoke cigarettes in his life?

If Ron Paul said,"I really don't think it's a good idea to be killing brown children on the other side of the planet with US un-manned drone airplane attacks."

"I don't think it's constitutional to do, and in fact it's probably against the Geneva Convention as well. I think it's a sin to be doing it. That's my Christian side coming out. I delivered over 4000 babies you know."

Nice one mynhair.

I want all negative arrows on this site.  Some people are just little bitches and like to click minus arrows on the internet, thinking that's going to change things. 

Whatever gets you through the night, fruits.

+5 to -7.  Here we go, bitchez.

Here are three things I read on the internet that I know to be true.  Two of them came from this site:

  • He who complains has already lost.
  • Knowledge only gains you the booby prize.
  • I want to destroy Victoria Justice's pussy.

Give me your negative arrow, fruits.  I'm sure you will sleep better at night knowing you live in a feedback loop. 

And good luck with your internet activism.  BTW, what is TZOO trading at...

...and this is a really good tune:

I don't know why you got so many red arrows.  It was your post that alerted it to me and I thought it was great.  When I saw all the red ones you had for what I was thought was helpful post I kinda...decided to pile on because I found it funny you had so many negative comments.  Dunno why you picked then up before that!

Caerus, I was just having some fun, really no idea.  Austin??? I'm a Canadian and one night on the interstate across Louisiana a convoy of pickups with Texas A&M flags and banners on went passed us in the other lane (they'd played LSU).  I was with a few friends from Texas so I decided to impress them by giving them that Hook 'em Horns sign with my fingers and fist out the window even though I had no horse in that race...well it wasn't a good idea!

No idea why I'm writing this I gotta stop drinking...

13 injured in suspected gas blast in Macao English.news.cn   2011-07-26 10:28:57

 

MACAO, July 26 (Xinhua) -- At least 13 people were injured in a suspected gas explosion in the Hotel Golden Dragon of Macao on early Tuesday morning, police said.

Police said eight of the injured have been sent to hospitals and all of them's condition are stable.

I have a hard time beliving an upscale hotel/casino has gas canister powered stoves in its restaurant. Aren't those mainly for portable stoves?

"suspected that gas leakage led to the blast"

Right...right... There's always lots of gas stored near the main entrance glass of major hotels!

Maybe the "gas leakage" was from a firing chamber of a delivery device...

There fore 'they' can be comfortable in being technically correct/honest..

I tried to junk myself, but my greenies went north, what is up with this?  Only Robo can fix this.  Sweet Poly Purebread pleads: "Oh where, oh where, has my Robotrader gone, oh where oh where can he or she be????

There are too many buttons here for me.  I am going to quit ZH and get a job with the Fed, so the only button I have to push is the print button.

Rates are lower in the U.S. at the shorter end of the curve, this is bound to have a billowing effect on the Yen.  Secondly, no reports of any kind as to the structure of real estate and debt in Asia, whether denominated in Yen, Yuan, HK Dollar or Thai Bhat.

 Because it's (NZD) pegged to the Euro and Usd.  By default it's pegged to the SPX, and commodities... NZD is a fun trade and nothing more... look at the spreads and liquidity.

Am I watching ZH do the same?

I'm sick of this.  If there is going to be a New World Order, there needs to be a New World Time.  Who gives a rat's ass where the sun is anymore?  If it's 11pm here, it should be 11pm everywhere.  What, you can't adjust your clocks?

WE NEED A NWT!

I'd go along with a universal, world wide 5pm.

Meet you ~half-way at 8:30 and call it a compromise?  I can borrow a half hour..
