Having used a bunch of news services, for the average joe following zerohedge on twitter comes pretty close for breaking news.  FGoria is another good follow.

Slovakia cant gather majority on EFSF upgrade approval also.

SO - so far "yah": 1 (France); "nein!" 2 (Austria, Slovakia). 14 to go.

You mean the secret remote "push buttons"? ;-)

My bet is that esp. those countries which are still within stability-criterias of maastricht-contract will be against bailing out (read: upgrading EFSF). Yes, there are already criterias in place, just noone cares. Not even FR or DE did.


Just figures!

Didn't Turbo Timmy just DEMAND that Germany and the rest of Europe do more and expand the bailout fund? Didn't he say there is a zero chance of another Lehman event?

"The US will NEVER lose its Triple A rating"

OK...when does this guy get tried and hanged for treason against America? I am dead serious....

Believe me, all the doomers will turn out wrong for the x-th time. All 17 europarliaments will agree with the packages, sceptics dare not protest or act. The default rumors will fade, Greece will get its needed 8 billion, to pay the bills from Oct. until December. Then it will get another needed amount. And so on. Really, all the talks, panics and other nonsense will just fade and at best come back every 3 months for a short period. The euro will survive, politicians decide, taxpayers pay and the euro and everyone will live "happily" ever after. No Armageddon. All ends well. Merry Christmas. Boring world we live in.

S&P failed first attempt at breakout of top side of flag (~1180), and also filled the downside gap from Sept 9th.  Technicals bearish so far.  Bottom side of flag is down near ~1150.  Breakout of bottom side means a re-test of ~1100.

Descending megaphone chart pattern on SPY so far today.

News about Finnish 'collateral' demands, everybody already knew that anything would have been acceptable, but in this version you have to pay for collateral. Arrgh!

Another lovely Google translation:

Austria: The collateral is so expensive that only Finland will take them
14.09.2011 16:56 | Comments
A A Reuters, STT, HS

Vienna. Austria proposes that all countries of the euro would have the right to demand collateral in exchange for economic aid for Greece.

Austrian Finance Minister Maria Fekterin According to the idea, however, is that the collateral would be so expensive that only Finland would take them.

"Right. Austria drove the matter in this direction", Fekter said on Wednesday.

Fekterin that can not be in such a way that would guarantee only Finland, but the same right should be in all the euro countries.

On Tuesday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, met with Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen (Nat. Coalition Party) said that the issue of Finnish required collateral is still open and working to resolve it continues to minister and senior official level.

All of these so-called 'ministers' and 'officials' continue to pledge their nations to things that their voters and parliaments will not ratify.  You have a parliament doing one thing, representing the people, then you have career bureaucrats doing another thing because they fear the great unwind.  This is really a classic case of people versus their entrenched government bureaucrats.  How will 'democracy' hold up?

Oh, Austria!

/sarcasm on

Despite the fact that the austrians altogether each and every one of them have been on the core of the resistance against Hitler from day one in 1938 until the end in 1945 and after the war declared themselves the prime innocent victims of those nasty Germans and hence no one in his right mind in Germany takes those guys serios they at least now showed some guts.

These austrians are a lovely folk, backward dwellers of them alps, themselves being historically nothing else but germans of austrian locality all of them without exception, with a artificially constructed local self-conception made into a state doctrine of national identity due to the treaty of Saint Germain imposed upon Cisleithania (the germanic part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire) after 1918.

/sarcasm off

For that move today alone they have my utter respect for which i am willing to forgive and forget all historical resentments against them Schluchtenscheissers (epithet for an austrian, literally a chasm-shithead, used in Germany), as a Piefke (epithet for a stiff, dry and humour-free prussian, used in Austria), what has been done in their parliament committee today may be far more in the end than our politicians in Berlin will ever have the balls to do.Bravo!

Tu felix austria recusare!
