Eurogroup Press Conference In Progress

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update 3: Conference begins now

Update 2: At this point the conference, if at all, will be held at 3:30 am CET. Probably would be better to just scrap it all, put a fork in Greece and go home. The second the 10 page Greek "sustainability" report hits the public it's lights out.

Update: 23:00 CET has come and gone. Next stop: midnight. As a reminder, the October 2011 official second Greek bailout announcement was delayed until 4 am.

According to a just released update on the website of the European Council, the much anticipated press conference "to end all press conferences" will take place at 23:00 CET, or 5 pm Eastern. What will then likely happen is another delay until midnight, then later, then finally when Europe is sleeping a few finance ministers will say that the Deal is virtually done, the terms of the PSI are agreed upon (except that "some" creditors, those who have a blocking stake, will vote no and force the use of CACs and thus trigger a default before March 20) with the exception of a few minor outstanding items, such as whose debt is cut to bring total Debt/GDP to 120% by 2020, which they hope to get resolved shortly. And so this latest and greatest meeting will come and go, and anyone who shorted the Belgian caterers will be broke when the market opens up tomorrow, when Belgian catering ETFs all go limit up.

Watch it live, or dead, or zombie, or however the mood suits, at the following webcast.

And the full statement:

The shuffling of the deck continues.

Only difference here is that extra cards in this deck can be printed at will, with the rules of the game changing as the game is played.  Only in Olympia!

The EU, EZ, ECB and IOC may be about to announce, with the FinMin group, that the Summer Olympics will be held in Greece, not London, this summer. The Germans will supply security, the Belgians will cater meals, and the UK will set up cheap housing ala the Costa del Sol.  

Most sporting events will be as expected except the marathon.  This year, the marathon will be held on the Pelaponnese and run through Marathon.  The competitors in this event will be TBTF bankers, hedge funds, and issuers of sovereign debt - sometimes Treasury type officials, sometimes legislators that just keep deficit spending.  It is expected to take months before a medal is awarded.

Thank god they were respectful enough to wait until Presidents Day was concluded here in the US, because that is the super nice respectful thing to do.

 

Next up Mardi Gras, followed by Ash Wednesday, so maybe they should just wait until Thursday at this point.

And while we're waiting, in other news, one of the Kenyan National Ski Team's long-time and best boosters takes to the slopes.

After a challenging run down the double black diamond face wall she was heard to have exclaimed "It's so nice to take a break from all the grueling official state vacations to participate in one of my people’s ancient pastimes!”. Afterwards she joined her royal entourage for a traditional après-ski mug of hot coconut grog followed by a sit down roast antelope dinner.

Deja vu?

On 9/6/11, at the conclusion of a U.S. 3-day weekend, the SNB announced a euro peg for the swissie, effectively devaluing by 10%. Though this was extremely gold-positive, gold was smashed in the minutes before the announcement. The raid continued thru Tuesday, the 7th and gold finished down almost $50.

Fast forward to tonight. The end of a 3-day weekend. Some gold positive news out of Europe. An overnight beatdown coming? Watch the price action at the 3:00 am EST LBMA open and be prepared for anything.

@21, have been looking at stock prices for only the last few years of my life. IMO... Forget about MICRO fundamentals. Bet on a company, product, invesment, asset, commodity, stock... based upon a macro economic thesis that the whole economic/geopolitic system will implode soon... there is NO 100% safe haven investment... I however think the inflation trade will be on for sometime, thus I think AAPL will benefit from all future rounds of QE and other forms of stimuls. Physical GOLD and other hard assets also benefit in expansionary liquidity enviornments. I have gotten physical gold over the past several years as gifts and plan to hold for sometime.

But I see your point, it could reflect, as hedgeless suggests, his pussie status to the dog.

Narrator:  [V.O] This is Bob. Bob had bitch tits.
Narrator:  [V.O]This was a support group for men with testicular cancer. The big moosie slobbering all over me… that was Bob.
Robert ‘Bob’ Paulson: We’re still men.
Narrator: Yes, we’re men. Men is what we are.
Narrator: [V.O] Eight months ago, Bob’s testicles were removed. Then hormone therapy. He developed bitch tits because his testosterone was too high and his body upped the estrogen. And that was where I fit…
Robert ‘Bob’ Paulson: They’re gonna have to open my pecs again to drain the fluid.
Narrator: [V.O] Between those huge sweating tits that hung enormous, the way you’d think of God’s as big.

The press conference will announce the success that every Euro zone member contributed to.

The Germans brought the pig.

The French brought the Dior dress with décolletage revealing the pig's teats.

The Italians brought the sexy stiletto high heels for the pig's feet.

The Belgies brought the lipstick. 

The Portuguese and Spaniards brought the smoke and mirrors.

The Greeks brought the duct tape.

They should have plenty of priceless ancient treasures. A couple of them ought to cover $200 billion and then they can sue Germany for WW2 and then start working on something. Everybody else will probably need to sue Germany too.
