And Today's Market Ramp Comes Courtesy Of...

Tyler Durden's picture

... The Eurogroup, which according to various newswires has informally decided to use the EFSF for Spanish financial sector bailout, likely to be transferred to the ESM later according to sources.

It seems that now they are not even trying. Like yesterday when the market idiotically ramped when Merkel said that the ESM and EFSF can do... what they are designed to do, namely buy bonds, so today, we "discover" that because the ESM is actually non-existent, and will be delayed as reported earlier due to German bickering, Europe will be stuck with the far smaller EFSF, which by the way has about €200 billion in dry powder left.

And this ramps the EURUSD by a whopping 40 pips. Thank you flashing red headline for giving another short-term shorting entry point.

The internet is undoing decades and decades of the social engineering programs, implimented through corporate TV and their other sources of brainwashing.

I am going to so enjoy watching the oligarchs control grid and themselves crash and burn.

I just thank God every day, as I have been doing for the past three years, for the complete and total worldwide economic collapse that I have so accurately called, as well as being accurate about the two previous mega bubble busts. I should be paid for my accuracy.

The Ramp has a huge Oil-slicked hole in it...

OUCH! BAC faceplant bitchez!

Sell the rumors and the news.

The TBTF taxpayer teat-sucking parastic drain financial players have  rigged this to tank in a big way so they can prime the pump again. In other words, they're going to throw a big, loud tantrum, tanking 401(k)s, until they get what they want.


It's 2008's, Hank Paulson's "tanks in the streets & martial law if Congress doesn't give me a blank check and The Bernank a green light, bitchez," redux, deja vu, v2.0.

I remember that being reported Hank saying that.  But I think that is going to happen anyway when all our liabilities don't get paid by the govt..

The factor that overrides your argument, reader2010, is that Zero Hedge does not have enough Michaels to repeat every day in every way the one development that will save us from absolute tyranny. And that one development, as Michael so carefully explains (and BTW it is a lie that it is repeated as a mantra) is the unraveling of the cartel noose that strangles free enterprise and free men throughout the world.

Michael's picture

Thanks JR.

I usually only repeat my own stuff from time to time, if I would like to explode the heads of some day shift lurkers in the MSM and elsewhere, and it it was the subject of recent conversation.

Michael: "The internet is undoing decades and decades of the social engineering programs, implimented through corporate TV and their other sources of brainwashing."

Really? You see a mass awakening occuring right now?

What I'm seeing is hordes of zombies walking around, staring at little screens and typing on tiny keypads. I don't see a larger percentage of the population actively questioning anything. Of course, if Social Media went down for a week, who knows what might happen.

JR's picture

The Internet is alive with the news that the empire, the cartel and the tyranny of our economy and politics are suffering a mass decline in credibility. It is becoming well known that the center of our problem stems from use of a fiat currency by a private banking cartel to control in secrecy the economy, the politicians and the country.

The internet has been the critical vehicle for the erosion of major political party power and the increase in independent registrations, the decline in newspaper and television influence on public opinion, and the foundation for the massive county by county Ron Paul movement gaining in strength every day. The GOP primary, where Independents can’t vote, is hardly a gauge for the most important political development since the establishment of the Federal Reserve – middle class awareness and backlash.

QE is forever baked in the cake. Come on, it's the final global taxing scheme.

Diminishing Returns is baked into the cake deeper than QEinfinity.

Don't you think people will wake up when QE4 is 25 trillion?

Ramp? More like a speed bump. This fuckers' going down. Margin call bithchez.

Just curious...I wonder how this drop will help JPM on their trade....if it will at all.

bigkahuna's picture

This drop is nothing, unless there are more like it in sequence, then you have big players getting out and overwhelming the algos. I am not sure how long the people in control of the algos would tolerate that.

If we have about 5 days of it, I believe that will turn the algos - and then is when the fit hits the shan.

If funds for Spain's banks come from the EFSF, the new loans would not explicitly be senior to other private claims but Spain would no longer be able to guarantee the previous loans to Greece, Ireland and Portugal.
