Emergency Meetings Galore: ECB To Hold Crisis Conference Sunday, G20 To Hold Call At 2230 GMT Tonight

Tyler Durden's picture





 

For a world that has supposedly largely priced in the US downgrade, the amount of emergency conference calls this weekend is a little disturbing. First, tonight at 22:30 GMT the G20 deputy finmins will hold a conference call It to "exchange of information and opinions." Next tomorrow sometime the ECB will hold a separate call in "response to the latest developments in the euro zone's debt crisis, an ECB source said on Saturday." Somehow we think the tangential topic of the historic US downgrade may also be breached. And, as always, the market is sure to be delighted with the outcome of this latest political hodge podge of responses to what is increasingly shaping up like a market perfect storm of epic proportions.

From Reuters:

Deputy finance ministers from the Group of 20 leading economic powers will hold a conference call on Saturday to discuss the crises in Europe and the United States, a Brazilian finance ministry official said.

 

The official told Reuters the call was scheduled for 2230 GMT.

 

"It will be an exchange of information and opinions," the official said by e-mail without providing further details.

 

Investors are eager to see signs of a coordinated policy response among major economies, which might prevent the crises from spreading or getting worse.

And also from Reuters:

The European Central Bank will hold a conference call on Sunday to discuss its response to the latest developments in the euro zone's debt crisis, an ECB source said on Saturday.

 

Italy's pledge to speed up austerity measures and whether the ECB should buy Italian government bonds could be discussed but the call's focus would be on the broader situation in the bloc, the source said.

 

Two sources earlier said ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet was due to hold a teleconference over the weekend, and that the ECB remained divided over whether to buy Italian government bonds.

Add Germany's opposition to make a "GDP-for-Italian entitlement benefits" distressed exchange and the fan is on full blast just, waiting for the latest batch of excrement to hit.

The fact that the ECB is not printing money to bail out Italy is disturbing - Italy would be  servicing less debt then Germany if it had American interest rates.

It would be a real shocker if the ECB came out on Sunday night saying they were going to raise rates and at the same time they would not bail out anybody else. That would seriously fuck over Benocide's plans for QE5000.

 I wouldn't count it out.  It is more likely that they raise rates and do some minor bailouts. The raising of rates would cause capital to rush to the EU which would help the whole situation.

Spitzer, what are you smoking to be so sanguine about Europe and the ECB? Wish I had some because from here inside the EU projekt, things are quite bleak.

I'll repost some of what I wrote on another thread.

The ECB does not control much of anything, not policy and not much of the gold, that belongs to the sovereign nations themselves: Portugal 421.5 tons, Netherlands 674.9 tons, etc. The ECB only has 553.3 tons or 30 billion USD worth. If you think Portugal will give up its gold horde for a bunch of ECB paper, well, I hope you would be wrong but anything's possible with politicians.

Our massively overvalued € aside, the mechanisms of "Europe" to deal with a crisis of the magnitude of Italy and Spain being far beyond US-levels of bankrupt (which we have know about for well over a year) simply do not exist. Italian debt at 120% GDP, that's the 3rd largest country in the EU. Here in Austria, the number of people with mortgages to pay in CHF is simply astounding and in our next-door neighbor, Hungary, it is even more dismal. Guess who is the "Countrywide" in this situation, Bank Austria, owned by Unicredit.

The national identities within Europe will agree to cooperate but will not allow truly painful sacrifice of its citizenry for the well-being of another nation, because at the end of the day, European Parliament doesn't matter at all. Germany et al have our own elections to consider and the "political will" often bandied about by punditry can be replaced with Right-Wing nationalist parties at the next election cycle and "poof" the European projekt will vanish like so much smoke, and the EUR will be good for stoking fires alongside the USD, especially after Germany closes all of its nuclear plants and becomes even more reliant on Russia for energy.

Gold was mostly sold out in the early morning of our local coin show, today.  What was left (scraps) was selling at a $2200/ounce.  Highly unusual for these guys, I have known them for 5 years.  Silver was variable (hot and cold) depending on dealer. 

I am wondering where the flight to safety will be Monday and highly suspect it will be to gold.  However,  I would be suprised to see the dollar fall much.  We'll see.

I, personally, will never go to that man's site again.

I was an avid contributor to the site until, at one point, Roubini made a post that basically said the only way to save the world was massive QE.  I posted that QE would become a mechanic that would end up only prolonging the pain by artificially holding up the economy, and that it would require a second, third and nth round of additional QE to infinity.

I then suggested the NR should rethink his position, lest he go down in history as having predicted one downturn only to suggest a solution that was clearly destined to fail in the long run.

For that post, I was banned from the site, basically for suggesting that not everything NR said was by definition perfect, and that the man himself could never be questioned.

At this point, I think I can claim that I was right, and that he was wrong, and that banning me from the site (only later to ask me repeatedly to return) was bullsh**

If he isn't open to constructive and well thought out criticism, why should I contribute.  It was through that good fortune that I came to ZH and have been here ever since.

Keep Your Eyes on the Macro Data

“It is clear to us from Friday’s [July 29, 2011] market reaction that the market has still not fully discounted the awful growth picture because if it did, the S&P would be a lot lower than it is trading.”

I can't wait to see the futures tomorrow night. All currencies should be down at least 2% across the board, except for the Yen and Swiss Franc.

If there's still a Yen carry trade, there won't be within 48 hours. The unwind of the carry trade should force mass liquidations across the board, including a temporary sell-off in commodities. Once that's over, commodities will skyrocket as buyers pile in to take advantage of the dip.

This will be a huge buying opportunity for commodity traders.

I'm gonna call 911.  That would actually be hillarious.  Save me motherfucker!  My 40lk's gettin crushed!  Well there went the first 12 pack.  A little later I load up the cooler on the 4wheeler, grab the gun and head to the creek.  It's rather stress relieving. 

SuperGay20 good luck.

Hard for me to believe the USA is collapsing at the same time as the EU without some deliberate coordination and plan.

The USA doubled it's national debt in just 5 years. That's too stupid to do, and unbelievable, unless it was purposefully done to create a new WRC.

We knew that day would come but it's quickening now.

Just imagine the catering and alcohol bill for this shindig.  Also, no hotel maid or street walker will be safe.

Ok..G7 rich f-ups now call G20 for a meeting. Since G7 will soon be Emerging Markets, G7 now calls the suckers G20 to discuss a solution for their f-ups.

Brazil Bovespa is down over 23.60% YTD and its currency overvalued against USD, kiiling exports..Q3 on the way and more pain..

G20 guys can't print money like Bernie and gang. A lot of these G7 counties should be BBB..

The reality of our sad condition is unfolding, no hiding anymore..

The car bouncing off the guard rail just found a weak spot and punched through.  Lets get it over with once and for all.  They'll print some more, and assure this, guarantee that, but we all know the count - they're holding a pair of two's and its show your cards "all in" time.  Fear and glee.  Who would've thought Germany would be the lynch pin a year ago....two years ago.  Watch these fuckers blame it on something like China or business investment or whatever.  Guess we find out whose been swimming naked next week when the tide goes out, eewwwww!

The conferences are being held for the purpose of announcing good news, just before Asian markets open on Sunday. Does anybody really think that the ECB, etc. will announce bad news tomorrow? Not likely, given that Obama has been consulting directly with Merkel, Sarkozy, et al since Friday.

Make no mistake, the two main topics of the G20 discussion will be:

 

 

1.  "Don't panic, just keep buying gold slowly"

2.  "Which one of you fu#ks is buying more gold than their share?  It's you China, isn't it?"

This is a side issue but just to make sure we go into total crazy land From the Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan gave a stark warning to Assad on Saturday that his country's patience is running out with Syrian regime over its bloody crackdown on protesters.

"Our patience s running out. Therefore I am sending Turkish foreign minister to Syria to hold all the necessary talks there," Erdogan said. I think Turkish troops are going to go into Syria ... Welcome to the party pal.
