As Euro Bank Pukefest Resumes, Goldman's Sigma X Lights The Way

Tyler Durden's picture

Intesa may be halted for trading on the MIB, but that sure doesn't mean that Goldman's Sigma X clients are prohibited from dumping their shares on the hedge fund's dark pool, which incidentally is always happy to accept and match client orders. Sure enough, as the puke fest in European banks resumes (and both Italy and German CDS are now materially wider on the day, the Italian 2-Year Note yield rising 30 bps to 3.95%, and the 10-Year up 20 to 5.60%), the top traded names on Goldman's dark pool once again is the who's who of insolvent European banks, starting with Italy, passing through the UK and rounding up the top 5 with Germany. But, but, the second European bailout was supposed to work? What happened?

the Euphoria in Europe is fading already.  this plan will not fix Europe and people already realize meantime, some idiot will try and ramp on the inevitable u.s. debt ceiling deal, but that has now gone on so long, the only outcome is long term downgrades and lack of faith in the u.s.

Have you read his latest? He is now fully geared for the Land of The Delusional:

'Take it from a guy who has had MS for the last 14 years, Nietzsche was right: what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. I've been fired a few times (all on flimsy grounds where I could have sued their pants off), been through a divorce, ups and downs on the health front and with personal and professional relationships, but I now realize there is absolutely nothing you can't do if you put your mind to it.'

Clutching at Nietzsche!? The last gasp of the impotent and batshit.

It was the spirochetes talking. Nothing killed them, they grew stronger and stronger, until they landed Nietzche in an asylum and finally killed him.

With humans what doesnt kill you fucks you up for the rest of your life.

In college we always puked for distance.  They are wasting allot of puke.

Dexia down 7%!

Better keep a close eye on that one because if he pukes and rolls over, a lot of French and Belgium banks will follow suit.

The new EFSF is not operational, yet. You´ll have to wait for few months to see its impact.

Good to see strong UK representation 4 Main Banks and 4 (I think they're UK) High Profile companies.

We haven't done this well in the charts since The Beatles!

Get it done, bring on the slaughter. 

Surely the only reason the Euro is at 1.43+ is because sights are still on the US. Otherwise it would have been BANG!

Wouldn't it?

The USA is losing the race to the bottom today?  Damn horses.

Zero Govt's picture

with morons like Timmay, Benny and Obumma as your jockeys i wouldn't write-off the US yet!

remember the Europeans are used to fighting in the trenches gritting it out when they're under severe pressure... the Yanks prefer lucky shootin' from Helis' or firing drones from behind desks in DC and not so sure they've got the stomach to hold on by your fingernails in the final stretch

A downgrade is a must if the rating system is not a complete fraud already. The US should be a CCC rating just above junk because that is reality. There is no way for the US to make any significant budget cuts, the US is bankrupt, end of story.

Totall chaos over here in Europe. We cannot figure who are the debtors or creditors anymore. Bring back Madoff as he is probably the only guy who can explain this fiasco. How can Italy and Spain be lined up behind Germany and France to bailout themselves? Nuts
