The EUR-USD Rollercoaster Goes Down As The Goldman Stop Losses Are Triggered

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Earlier we warned everyone that the Goldman stop loss triggers were if not hot then would be any minute. That just happened and the EURUSD tumbled a good 40 pips in seconds as soon as the several supporting bids just below 1.35 were finally eradicated, bringing the Euro to a 5 week low. And as a reminder, tomorrow we have some very interesting Spanish and French bond auctions (for full list see here). As another reminder, both closed at record spreads. Better set that alarm for 2:45 am: things are getting dramaminy once again.

Last few minutes:

And the damamine nightmare since the beginning of August:

Which brings us round full-cricle to the Jen Anniston vs. Angie debate. They're both hot, but Jen's a little porcelain princess - so she'd be the crotch, on the bed, eyes clamped shut, all the lights off, thinking of England. Angie's such a freakazoid they don't have a word for her yet - she'd be the ass. With toys, handcuffs, fists, a couple of her best girlfriends, maybe her brother, and cameras rolling from every angle.

Guess Tyler's an ass man. You could see it coming, right there in the movie. "Man, you've got some fucked-up friends, I'm tellin' ya. Limber, though..."

And the press is worried:

 

http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/c9efa9fe-0fb5-11e1-a36b-00144feabdc0.html...

 

Interpretation: GS stop losses at 1.35 because it knows hedge fund Euro attacks are escalating into the endgame.  It is the US dollar, actually, that cannot be propped any longer, hence the Euro attack, hence the stop loss requirement.  Ouch, ouch.

Wed, 11/16/2011 - 00:23 | Link to Comment FlimFlam
FlimFlam's picture

And one further contextual piece.  Greece was downgraded when?  When the US dollar began tanking.

 

Assume the US dollar's fall is inevitable (I mean, really ...).  What's a financial industry to do in the face of that?  Grab assets (read: attack the Euro, apply austerity worldwide).  The implication, here, not missed by people around the world facing austerity, is that this debt-fight we're now witnessing has no solution.  Many on this site know it has no solution.  Many in the know (Dalio ad almost infinitum) know there's no solution.  One is left with just a bit of time to grab as many assets as possible.  GS stop-lossing at 1.35 is an attempt to keep the Euro from falling too quickly before assets are grabbed. 

 

Major change coming.  That line in the sand has been crossed.

Mostly American primary dealers are trying to talk down euro. They are responsible for buying all that US debt coming out 75-100 billion dollars worth per month if nobody else buys.

So naturally they are talking down competitors in Europe in order to keep the demand steady for FED crap paper. I'd bet there are a huge army of economists ordered to do just that in many banks.

"ITALY IS SELLING WHOPPING THREE BILLION EUROS! LOOK OUT!...(and btw, look here, we are trying to sell a little bit of USA debt, only 35 billion dollars)"

Yah, that makes sense.  It was hedge fund reps (incl Soros) + big bank reps that met secretly in Manhattan to talk about the Euro.  The very problem driving those meetings is what you say.

Actually it's the other way around. Failure of the super committee will trigger the default spending cuts. It's highly deflationary. That would mean the dollar would tend to move up against other currencies.

At least until the fed speaks of more QE.

If Congress comes up with zilch, they could always vote to delay the trigger cuts.

The whole trigger idea was just BS anyway, they are not going to allow massive

defense cuts with the world involved in so much conflict. Any real spending cuts

and new taxes will not take place until after the elections, and when they come 

due, will be put off again, just the way they have extended the Bush Tax cuts.

The debt and deficit spending will never be addressed by politicians until there

is a major collapse and they have no other choice.

It's far less than 20. I know from running my own business that if you have super-competent reliable types, things run smoother with fewer people. We know of a few assistants (Sacriledge, among others) but from the writing styles I would be shocked if there are even five "Tylers." My guess is three, plus a couple assistants (not counting IT), with the real Tyler doing the investment suggestions, and he has some skillz, man.

If there's substantially more than that, I suspect it's unpaid staff with super-secret Tyler posting priveledges but I doubt this.

I do miss Marla, tho. Especially the IRC DJ nights. I wonder if we're ever getting IRC back?

Could you please start making precious metal calls as well. My algo is excellent, but I can't bat 100% like you. In addition, I'm wondering how many years of experience you got under your belt because your stop levels seem to come from a free book I got on the internet. Just wondering how you liked it and whether all Squid employees make it a must read.

Wishing you all the best on the new position at MF Global making Euro calls.

some trader saying this:  "Part of it is simply a correlation trade. They're all just so linked by the computer models that when one of those three (EUR, AUD and stocks) goes, the other two go with it,"

Huge gap down on US markets coming...lets smash all supports, HFT's get loaded and short you f*cking robots.  Europe falls apart before christmas

yeah bets on Greece is exiting the EU, then Italy, Spain, Portgual...France is done too.

1.34 goes, boom, ping pong on equities then a CB prints.  Meantime EUR is going down.

gutsy call you may get in early...i'd feel more comfortable shorting at 1.30ish which imo would be h&s confirmation...i hope you're right, i'm staying away for now...it's all up to the "super duper committee" or whatever the fuck they're calling it now

1.40 here we come :-(

And I am holding a bunch of FAZ, PHYS, and EUO overnight :-(

Funny thing is even in October I picked up 10% while shorting financials. You know, the month the market was fixed.

Must dump. Everything is going to be better tomorrow because US GDP growth is going to be 3.5% this quarter according to Steve Liesman.

I guarantee Liesman will say any/or of the following "all in all it is a good report" or "it looks like we are avoiding a double dip" or "there is some good stuff in here"

Scary looking charts.  Hi all!  Just checking to see if my account works.  I registered "Weeks" ago ... but then that 4 letter word got the best of me .... "WORK" .... Yes, I'm a Slave/Serf in the Kingdom of President Zero.  (I'll be good, I promise, Well ... Sort of .... HeHeHe - Evil Grin)

so if you say "we're not gonna be the dumb money again" and you are again...what do you say to that? Here's a thought: "i want a job with CNBC." You never know! "You used to be REALLY RICH!" And now? "You're just comfortably well off."

Alas, the euro was a trojan horse designed to destroy sovereignty.

Thus, of course, they shall destroy to conquer,

with their monetary religion.

Would depend on momentum but 1.30 could see a "hail mary" bull reaction.

OK. I think this shouldn't surprise anyone, in fac I was pissed yesterday as of course the hft bozo's ramped up off the trend line at the end of the day, and if you had been following the trend lines the s and P hadn't gotten to the point it needs to for support, and udn (weekly hadn't) hit it's support line. so of course the open would be down today, now we can screw about for the week and move up going no where and then big drop. why we don't just drop to where we need, good knows. it's a hft front running scam and allowed what a joke every hourly over sell off getst boought into sp we close higher and drop to the lower low. the joke the us markets have becone, and of course if it ws charted out we hit the eop of the down trend and sold towards the end of the day. Watch the hourly macd if you want to trade this crap.
