They'll make it up on volume.

Success can be defined in many ways.
Borrowing money to lose money could be considered success, if you intend to lose money. (insert smiley here)
(or if you seek instill false confidence)(Insert winky here)
ECB succeeds! Crisis over! Turn risk back on! Save christmas bonus!
do they have a credit card I can sign up for?
Why do I keep paying 5% interest on my mortgage??
Its amazing the tricks..slight of hands that governments..central banks..and even the so called investors are doing to make this all seem NORMAL...or LEGAL
I'd like to know how a 7 day ECB bond could not be considered 'money good'?
Roast those PIIGS. Nice. Yeap
I think the 19th is when Italy has to refinance 800 billion in debt....that could be an interesting day...I might have the number wrong but its an amount where the other powers that be have to decide wether to bail them out..print cash..or let the EU go down...and every country for themselves....
can anyone explain to me why and how the EURO is staying up so well...???? baffles me
These numbers are all fraudulent - anything published by this criminal syndicate is completely false. Everything they say is a lie.
Reverso repo? What a whicked web the bankseristas weave.
It's even worse - banks borrowed at 1.25%, not 1.
is there a primer on how this shit works, who has got the piggs bonds, why do they call it serileization when there is no antiseptic or boiling involed. is the ecb making money on this deal or are they loseing loads
What is happening in Europe is all by design
“The EU was founded and initially led by ‘former’ Nazis and Fascists, as was the Charlemagne Prize awarded to Tony Blair, Edward Heath, Roy Jenkins and others for their role in removing democratic sovereignty from the nation states of Europe.” No wonder, says Atkinson, that the EU has today reproduced the policies and structures of 1940s Europe and shows all the characteristics of a totalitarian anti democratic corporatist Empire — for that is what its fascist founders intended.

Just wrote myself a check for a million dollars, guess that makes me a millionaire.
Ans will have to wait till you deposit it in your checking account.
SUCKER!! I'm a Billionaire!
Yet one wonders what is it that caused the €50 billion swing in available capital for European banks (last week the tendered for amount was €194 billion).

"...banks borrowed €252 billion at 1% from the ECB to lend €207 billion back at 0.65% to the ECB. And that is called a "successful" sterilization." - "successful" is a subjective notion, but this deal is definitely better for the tax paying public than what the effing Fed has been perpetrating for over 3 years: lending $7 trilllion to the banks at 0%, and then have the US Treasury borrow the same money back from the same banks at 2 and 3%! (soon to be much higher than that)
Against the background of the total debt, the ECB needs about 100 more bond sales, like that. 100 slugs in the vending machine, you take one out, pass it around, 99 slugs in the vending machine ......
Can someone explain to me why anyone would borrow money at a higher rate to lend it out at a lower rate? This seems to be what this thread implies. Doesnt make sense to me. Surely different banks are lending to those borrowing! In which case this is a real sterilisation.
well, if fractional reserve banking was as super-powerful as many critics seem to claim, I would think they could borrow $20 billion at 1% and then lend $200 billion at 0.65%, making a net 5.5% return. But that doesn't seem to be how it actually works.
Additionally, the connected parties (Not MF), as orchestrated ( deliberate min hype on fed emp retirement $ thef, deliberate min hype no biggie co-mingling private retirement theft, balloon, balloon ), when loaning at 1.25%, are receiving Euros in exchange for shriveling value BIGPIS debt, hence comment #1 on this thread that the ECB/Uber-levered beta fund, investable by holding the Euro, that they would make it up on volume. Connected parties de-risk, receive csh which can be 10x loaned, of which they chose to park a vast majority back with the ECB at .65%...for now...
