This thing is really going to collapse!
Why the hell isn't the EUR/USD going up???.. /sarc off/
I'm can't wait for the end of the month when we find out about the solution that will end the European crisis. I'd be concerned if the polikal leaders hadn't said it was 'all solved.'
Gawd I hope so.
The patient is gushing blood. Signs of shock and impending cardiac collapse are there for everyone to see. The European "Leaders" are meeting to plan a strategy to decide whether to put a "Barney the Purple Dinosaur" or "Mickey Mouse" bandaid on the gushing wound. I vote for a GOOFY bandaid.
G.I. Joe, bitchez!
'One wonders at this point just why the "make or break" summit is even happening?'
With all the excellent victuals, it could be the best circle jerk ever!
I visualize about 50 EU political leaders all in the cabin of a sinking ship trying to fight for who gets to steer the wheel while telling each other to get out and push cause the engine is flooded.
If the whole point of a meeting is to make sure something doesn't break, doesn't it make sense that it will if the meeting doesn't take place?
Lots of money stuck above 1200; when this bitch drops, itll be a elevator
Merkel will notify the parliament about "current status" as of tomorrow before 9am CEST
Only one appropriate action I could think to respond with a glib satisfaction
Kill the wabbit? http://youtu.be/C2VMqQ6XnmI
Have they finished printing the new Deutschmark yet?
you beat me to it!!!!
By the way Merkel is acting...an emphatic "Jawohl!" appears to be the A to your Q.
I'm in your camp to. Germany is preparing to cut itself loose from this charade. German people are too proud to persist with this shit.
sounds about right. maybe the french franc too. It would explain all the stalling and delay.
Everyone in eruope planning to simply shut the hell up and re-fortify their remaining positions, let everyone hang out to dry for a while. They may have realized that their situation was simply being used for cover by the Americans. fine with me.
And what great cover it has been. Thanks for the breathing room, fellas!
Leveraging debt to fix debt saturation was never a good concept.
Repudiation and restructuring only way to avoid world war anarchy and pandemonium (Greek word alert all + evil + disorder)
Damn I'm getting old. I remember when my weekly pay checks were printed on IBM punch cards.
I remember when I had to feed the server punchcards to run the same calculations I now run on my cell phone.
May I suggest we have a non-confidence vote for the German Chancellor.
We now need a strong Chancellor, perhaps I will be nominated
Chances are you wouldn't be as good Cancel-lor?
Is there a "ultra" popcorn that I can eat go with my Mic Ultra beer that I drink?
I'm on an austerirty diet.
I predict lots of mood swings and gnashing of teeth this weekend; people are anxious. I sure hope I don't hurt myself on this limb way out here.
I guess we will have to wait a bit longer for the launch of "Merkovy Hedge Fund, GmbH."
and the DOW is only down like 100 pts.
I'm convinced that all the trading on the stock market is now being done by the defective turret AI from Portal 2.
"...uh.... I'm Batman."
FRANCE, GERMANY NEED EXTRA EURO ZONE SUMMIT NEXT WEEK TO AGREE ON ESFS, IN SECOND GREEK FINANCING PKG
right... soon it'll be a race of printing money over printing invitation cards, menues and whatnot for "ubersummitting"
Jesus Christ. This is worse than a soap opera.
I worked with a foreman years ago who would say, "do something, even if its wrong."
As a foreman, my comment is usually "always enough time to do it again, never enough time to do it right."
Why does it make that ticking sound?
Everybodys Fucking So Fucked
EFSF = Europe For Suicide Fund
EFSF = Emit Farts Smell Farts
Extremely Fast Shit-Fan
My bet is that Greece officially defaults and announces 70% haircuts within the next 10 days. Start the countdown! The ESFS turns into debtor in possession funds.
What a theatre this whole world economy has become. Folks, all this marionetting for your viewing pleasure is for one thing........to steer investment to where they deem necessary to keep control. The dollar is the puppet that must trump all other puppets. To keep control they must keep the reserve currency-petrodollar status of the U.S. dollar as strong as possible. So, they have to make "everything else" look like shit to impose the "so called" flight to safety. Nevermind that there is OP-EX in the stocks tomorrow (Hammer the PM stocks/longs into submission) and nevermind that we have OP-EX next Tuesday in the metals. There will be some kind of paper (debt) solution next week in the E.U. after all the OP-EX's are cleared or rolled. Big hammer coming up for PM's. Sub $1600 for Gold going into next weeks OP-EX............................BTFD !
Why do they have impeccable timing (every month) ?..........because they control "everything" with paper, a printing press and a keyboard.
Free and open market ?..............Muuuuhahahahahahahah !
"Luckily, we never promised readers to have a quota of only one stupid European story per hour or else we would be worse liars than the European bureaucrats who finally discovered the abacus and punch cards,..."
Just STOP this shit Tyler - I got this far and started spewing coffee - damn!
It can make me forget that this investing/speculating/day trading yo-yo shit is *serious*.
And then you had to throw in toward the end:
"Is the catering bill so high that nobody thought of enacting a shorter than 48 hour cancellation policy?"
I mean, you could hurt somebody with this stuff, Tyler.
They forgot it is Octoberfest time, and no one will attend any meeting.
When it boils down, in the end, Germany isn't going to co-sign for shit.
Check it out, more outright buying of gov paper on no volume, no manipulation there.
one of the headlines at reuters is that the EU countries have agreed on 100 billion euros to recapitalize their banks (not enough money?), but some disagreements need to be worked out. Happy happy joy joy.
EFSF = Europen financial stability FAIL
