Dollar Tumbling To Record Low Against Swiss Franc, New Lows Against Yen

Tyler Durden's picture

For an early look at the risk aversion gripping the market look no further than the USDCHF and the USDJPY, the first of which just took out 0.75, and the second now almost at BOJ intervention levels. Ironically, since the math Ph.D.s have still not recalibrated their models, it is very likely that the collapse in the dollar will lead to an explosion in ES courtesy of the inverse correlation, which will once and for all confirm that global capital markets and now nothing but a robotic circus.

It's all bullish.

Let’s see who’s shouting SELL from the rooftops (besides ZH and the majority of the rest of the blogsphere):

That’s the short list (I’m sure there are dozens more you could add).

And as for “emergency” headlines:

Again, that’s the short list (I’m sure there are dozens more you could add).

REMEMBER FOLKS: what everybody knows isn’t worth knowing.

Good luck next week everyone.

yes...recall that in 08, the most savage counter-trend rallies (and 07) were when things were abolutely the bleakest.  When we were hours away from shit coming apart, BSC fail, LEH fail, etc.  The only time when stuff went really down and stayed there was during the LEH days but it effectively bottomed a month or two later then we got the 100% nonstop rally.

$1665 up $2.00 (numbers approx.)

I'm having an 'emergency meeting' as well, but it's of far more importance. Mine concerns the lack of refrigerated beer in the house and why it was ever allowed to reach such a critical level.

You can expect a statement shortly

I personally will be buying the dip in long-term bonds. Obama is a strong and courageous leader who knows how to inspire confindence. Congress has demonstrated great courage with their bipartisian compromise, which bodes well for the future.

Holy shit! A certified kool-aid guzzler on ZH...LOL

What's next, (D) & (R) Free Shit Empire™ paid political advertisements?!?

Well, I guess we've already got some of that rhetoric happening in the contributors section (BK anyone? LOL)

Maybe political database integration is the reason for ZH crashing every 60 seconds?

I totally agree with your comments about our great leaders in Washington.  And everyday when I ride my unicorn to work at the North Pole with Santa and the Easter Bunny, I tell anyone who will listen!

You Zero heads are so pathetic. The things you propose the country do is like finding out your wife is two months pregnant, but you haven't poked her in six months. You get so upset that you cut your own pecker off so that it can't happen again. All the while the rich guy who knocked her up is laughing his ass off over in the corner as he's plotting how he can knock up your daughter too.

Quixotic_Not's picture

You forgot to add the part where the whore used the money the rich guy PAID her at the spa and to binge on iShit...

$ to 0.  ES to infinity.  Equities explode on US debt downgrade!

Confirmation that both gold and silver will be up... wonder how long this panic will last before the big boys step in an manipulate away the pains...

Doña K's picture

Best thing to do for the Swiss and the Japanese central bankers to stabilize the FX, is to print print print and buy gold, silver, real estate, mines, forests, ports and other good assets up the kazu non-stop. Then print some more and buy each others currency. Meaning the Swiss to buy Yen and the Japanese to buy Swiss. That in the end will save both of you.

I'm long silver but I can tell you that your certainty that it will be up, after all is said and done, could well be misplaced.  Wasn't silver taken to the woodshed on Thursday when gold was up - in sympathy with the base metals?  Then on Friday silver was down - although base metals and gold were up.  If copper has the crap beaten out of it tomorrow, it's more likely than not that silver will be beaten to a pulp as well.

Quixotic_Not's picture

The trend is FIRMLY in place for long silver, as a safe medium for storage of wealth.

Now if your definition of long silver is flipping it on a quarterly/annual basis for capital gains, you WILL be taken to the woodshed on a regular basis.


Smiddywesson's picture

After all is said and done the dollar will reach zero, so where does that leave silver.

I am heavy gold, but I bought silver too. Silver is clearly the more easy to manipulate, but over the long haul, it is going where gold goes. Real value win out in the long run, when paper prices are only a distant memory

SilverRhino's picture

It will last right up until the NY open and then expect MASSIVE manipulation downwards.   And that manipulation will last mabye 2 days tops before PM's gain it back.

malikai's picture

I don't think so. They'll let it have it's run and once enough weak money is in at the top and silver particularly becomes vulnerable, it will be takedown time, possibly from a new high. I'd say now is a perfect time to own a bunch of out of the money calls. But I'd be sure to unload enough to book a little profit when silver is around $50.

Just what I think..

Captain Benny's picture

That is the exact position I have taken.  I own some OOM calls on paper silver with a plan to exit as silver approaches its recent high.  During the exit, of course, it'll be converted to physical (If I can find any available).

Smiddywesson's picture

The difference is everyone is moving from a "PMs are a bubble" mentality to a "How do I time the price manipulations so I can buy" mentality. That changes everything.

If the past is used as a probable indicator, government entities will be stomping on gold & silver with jackboots in a couple of hours. Question is....will they be over ridden by arkets forces?

If the R"oman" deciders had not skipped the year "zero" on the sun calender, then it would have been 2012 that saw the Mayan end date.  Instead, due to the mathmatical flaw, it will be 2011.  Perfect for the year of Solomon's Joachim and Boaz.

Watch these out takes from 1981 movie Rollover.  It'll give you nightmares...

I'll bet if somebody looked hard enough, the number 21214 would show up somewhere in the organization of Jim Cramer's Charitable (tax free) Trust, that invests primarily in gold, and dispenses profits to cronies ..... like every other tax free thing listed in the 60,666 pages in the US tax code.....

New World Chaos's picture

But then if we fix the flaw, wouldn't we be calling this year 2010?  Either way, end of the Mayan calendar would be end of next year.

Leonard Nimoy is clearly stating it is Oct 28th 2011

Guy's, the simple truth is they ran out of room on the rock! So now there will be new theories about who stole the next rock.........AND, what did those Mayans invest in to hedge the "end"?

Don't bet that the algos have not been recalibrated.

Who watches a robot circus? Other robots? Can sentient humans intervene anymore if we decided we wanted to? I can only think of one way-- Pull the plug on the whole thing. That, unfortunately, won't happen.
