Central Planning Sends Gold To Seven Month High As EURUSD Hits 1.28 On Massive Short Squeeze

Tyler Durden's picture

Total meltup panic and confusion in all but the US equity market where the INTC punch has sent stocks reeling, as an epic, Volkswagen-like short covering squeeze has taken the EURUSD up well over 100 pips in the past few hours (with technicals now running rampant as predicted three months ago), and where gold has now soared by nearly $40 on the day, sending it to just shy of $1740 and at the highest level since February. And all of this is happening without the Fed having announced QE, which it very well may not as it would then be seen as a largely political organization, or the ECB having bought a single bond under its restarted conditional monetization program, which paradoxically still needs Spain to crumble and demand a bailout before any of its bonds are eligible for purchases. In short: total centrally planned confusion, whose ultimate achievement will be to scare the last remaining non vacuum-tube based traders out of the market.
