European Liquidity At Worst Level In Years

Tyler Durden's picture

While it is not all too surprising in light of news that Greece may be insolvent in 48 hours, that the ECB is about to commence printing with the abandon of a drunken chairsatan, and that New York has a "credible threat" of another terrorist attack, it is a fact that liquidity across virtually every European vertical is now at its worst levels in years, starting with the EURIBOR-OIS (or interbank/central bank funding spread), which soared by 6 bps to 81.2, or the most since March 2009, the 3M USD LIBOR rising for the 34th day in a row to 0.338% at multi-year highs, and with deposit facility usage at the ECB rising to a new one year high of €172.9 billion, an increase of €7 billion overnight. Of particular note is the dramatic deterioration at Credit Agricole overnight which hit 0.4% in the 3M USD Libor, far worse than the "self-reported" dollar funding at Barclays and RBS which as we reported earlier, are perceived as the riskiest European banks should the inevitable bond haircut take place. Just as Dexia long-CDS was the slam dunk trade of H1, is CA poised to be the H2 one?

(Does this above article not point to a mini-"correction"? Or is Hopium the newest Kool-Aid flavor with the greatest punch?)

Now I get it

1) Banking cartel knows their prior actions are going to cause another meltdown / collapse

2) Banking cartel calls military and puts them on notice

3) Banking cartel calls Governments and puts them on notice

4) Banking cartel orders terrorist attack

5) Governments seize the opportunity to take more control while people panic

6) Market tumbles

USD exploding higher and EURUSD falling like a rock.  I found some good analysis reports and interesting forecasts.
Well the bullish USD seems to have arrived.

EURUSD looking very bearish.

Interesting day for the ES today.  Only a matter of time before the larger breakdown occurs.

Only a matter of time before we get the Obama-Bernanke "Re-substantiation Rally".

Chip stocks are already front-running it.

weekend. banks closed, but thanks to Zh, there were plenty of warning signs.


I agree that this is the beginning of a collapse, but we need to be distracted by a false flag event

so that the US/UK/GER/FR govs can slip the banks a T-note (trillion) while we're hiding under our beds.
