The bond market never lies.....
Especially when Bernanke is buying every bond on the market.
As of today, Finland is making provisions to exit the Euro. Holland and Germany are also looking for the exit door.
The source is yle.fi
yep, it's there.
..and so the next stage begins.
he can't keep up with PIIGS bonds
Agreed, it has been said many times: When bonds and equities disagree -- always listen to bonds.
(The reason being is that bond traders are smart fuckers. Equity portfolio managers by contrast seldom understand the macro picture, are too focused on granular equity movements, listen too closely to management or just happened to have rich daddies. ie: They are not smart fuckers.)
The equity markets are going to get fleeced in short time.
All you idiots out here. Its just profit booking. Dont you know Le Bernank hates deflation?
Glad I booked some on Friday.
Stupid idiot Merkel. Who thought Germans were this dumb...
What surprises me most is this total BS plan hinged to free Chinese money actually WORKED for as long as 48 hours!
No shit, eh?
One would have of course believed so. How couldn't one?
Perhaps, Frau Doktor Kanzlerin does not have the best interests of the German people at heart?
Maybe it is high time to take away Angie's checkbook - before it is too late?
the Germans aren't dumb, probably the smartest country in Europe
...German politicians and bankers ...now they're as dumb fuk stupid as every other of their class across the globe
Guess those Greek pension givebacks didn't go over so well..
Same ol same ol, equities always first to jump to (usually wrong) conclusions and always last to "get it".
Newet t-shirt..if WB7 can figure out a nice pic of Merkel...
I wasted a trillion euros, and all I got was this lousy depression.
"Trick or threat the IMF" with Merkel and Sarkozy is sooo beautiful! Buybuybuy!
Damn! I can hold an erection longer than that! That's without Viagra or Super Yohimbi Powder!
The person who's erection you're holding probably wants it back by now.
No, it's cool, just a few minutes longer.
Rubber bands aren't good for ya you know.
imagine how limp the dicks at the EC and ECB ?
PS- I'm tired of that "must buy to avoid career risk" CNBC theory- if that were the case, stocks could be bid to infinity by the end of the year, and you as a fund manager would have to perform at infinity plus 1 to gain any ground back- yeah, that's likely to happen- you've underperformed the index all year, but you're gonna turn the jets on NOW, uh-huh.
A more logical way to gain ground would be to stay in cash, and let stocks decay around you, thus improving your relative position, but then that method doesn't sell as much advertising on CNBC.....
Time to tie more carrots to sticks again I guess.
so when is the ES going to come to the same conclusion as treasuries? didn't they get the memo?
Full retard equities are still busy playing with turds in the sand box.
You might speak to soon
So when do they downgrade France already?
Not too far away
In case this happens Germany will reintroduce the Deutschmark immediately.
Riiiiiiiiight. Not with Merkel and their ilk in power.
how about must buy to avoid homelessness
Absolutely no volume today in equity futures (ES, NQ). Seems suspect, funds probably wanna show some exposure especially the long-onlys since it is month end.
Dollar futures looking great however.
Now bonds are ignoring 'Yen-tervention'...uh oh.
Fiat projectile vomit.
All over everything, including the PM's for god's sake.
When are these markets going to price this cave in to the PM's
They should be soaring to the moon.
This is truely Fiat projectile vomit.
Just a quick thought: Could it be that the outperformance in credit constitutes a paradigm shift? In the last months there were a lot of discussions about safe haven assets and more than once the question was posed whether a highly diversified corporate bond portfolio may be indeed a safer investment (in terms of default risk) than most government bond investments, but at the same time with a historically high spread premium. Here in Europe, we see a lot of investors with minimum yield requirements shifting into corporate bonds at the moment. So, the divergence of credit performance may be explained by these asset allocation effects.
Gold has not retreated to pre-summit levels, yet.
huh huh...careful...bear trap on the horizon...
everything is UP UP UP...easy now: new G20 meeting to avoid implosion in Eurozone, USA, CHina , Japan, Europe...everyone are afraid about financial crisis, so, for now the code is: UP UP UP...with NO SOLUTION AT ALL. BUT not solution isnt for ever...
that was fast...somebody at the global financial information manipulation and propaganda ministry of truth is getting a pink slip...maybe even several somebody's.
although it probably wasn't their fault what they threw didn't stick to the wall for long...the politicians didn't do a particularly good job selling it.
Its nice to see negative speculation...but I caught the whole move last nite, with an entry buy above price...which I do everyday at asia open...SSI was at 17 to 1 ..long to short...what has to happen, is more small interventions to show the world that BOJ means biz. Just like the SNB did with a floor on eur/chf at 1.20 ...Personally I have caught the majority of the last 4 interventions in yen now...
DUDE. What part of Buzzkill do you people not understand?!! DAMN.
I'll have no more of it I tell you. I'll have 1400 S&P. Okay. 1375, but that's it, by year's end.
Think of the children.
I know, right?
You failed to include the children disguised as adults - the majority of the US population who make everyday Halloween in my book - in your thoughts.
Only terrorists want the stock markets to go down. Evil doers!
Everything is fine in equity markets.
Japan's Nikkei is down 94% in real terms since its 1989 highs, and the U.S. major indexes are back where they were in 1999 in nominal terms and back to where they were in 1984 in inflation adjusted (i.e. real) terms, and the Chinese equity markets have begun a rapid descent.
It's all good. Be the buy and hold bagholder, because everyone who does accordingly willl end up like Warren 'Thanks for bailing my criminal ass out, taxpayers' Buffett.
All who follow in Buffett's footsteps, buying Coca-Cola, Disney, sheetriock manufacturers and some mundane ice cream manufacturer (the name of which escapes me), will retire as rock stars, pimps and billionaires. It's so easy (and non-rigged so as to never have a chance of crucifying most who dare to invest-gamble against the black box algos, HFT scalping/frontruniing/arbitraging machines and clients of expert networks) that a cave man can do it.
Nobody escapes the curse of Ponzi risen from the dead! He has plotted his revenge on global financialists for nearly a hundred years since the collapse of his scheme in 1920. And he wants to suck their blood! All he has to do is bite financiers, bankers and central bankers and he recruits them into his underground network of conspirators who then rig their evil spider web to snag the unsuspecting, mesmerized public. He teaches them his chant "buy...buy...buy!" and they blindly follow, turning over their life savings with a smile. He has grown so powerful he can convince even gurus, even regulators, central bankers and even national leaders! And then he hooks them for life as the charge for keeping them in the game is....Blood!!!
Euro Bailout Halflife: 48 Hours
And it goes so well with Japanese yen selling which seems to have a half life of 18 hours. From 75.5 to 79.9 overnight and already this morning back to 77.79. This looks a lot like TSHTF again.
Here is what was reported at Barrons, the analysis of MFG by Sandler O'Neill & Partners September 22. It ends with:
"...MF Global's transaction volumes have a higher correlation with CME Group volumes than volumes from other exchanges. Our volume estimate for MF Global assumes a 4% increase in exchange-traded volumes to 598 million contracts.
We are reducing our fiscal 2012 and 2013 EPS estimates to 30 cents and 60 cents from 46 cents and 76 cents, respectively. We are trimming our price target to $8 from $9 to reflect the decline in peer valuations since we last updated our model.
Our revised price target is based on 1.0 times tangible book value of $8.12. There is no change to our Buy rating.
-- Richard Repetto -- Mike Adams
Shouldn't there be consequences for such "analysts" when they issue rosy projections and buy ratings on zombie corporations? Part of the reason we are in the mess we are is paid for analysis that at best sugar coats the truth and at worst is utter fiction. Oh I forgot, all analysis comes with a link to a disclaimer.
Of course there should be consequences! Corzine was rumored to be heading for work with the Obama administration, MF Global could not complete a bond deal with buyers unless Corzine STAYED with MF.
CORZINE should suffer some consequences! Where are the OWS people and HATERS OF THE RICH screaming for Corzine's head now that he walks away with a $12,000,000 bonus? Where are you?
MF Global’s futures unit earns interest income from the collateral it holds to back its customers’ trades. That revenue has been cut as the Federal Reserve target interest rate on overnight loans has been between zero and 0.25 percent since late 2008. The firm reported interest income of $113.2 million in the quarter ended in September. When rates were at 5.25 percent in 2007, the company earned $1.77 billion in the quarter ended in March. MF Global also makes money by charging fees for brokering trades at futures and options exchanges.
