EURUSD Free-Falling

Tyler Durden's picture

EURUSD just traded under1.2150, down over 130 pips on the day. The question is - will wee see the ubiquitous rip-roaring reversion rally into the European close again? Rather notably this is as big a liquidity/break-up premium to its swap-spread-implied fair-value as we have seen since the peak of the crisis in mid November last year!



and the premium to swap-spread-based fair indicates a great a concern over break up as we have seen since the peak of the crisis last fall...

Yes the dollar smells just as shitty as the euro; it is all fiat and done by decree.  Nothing but IOUs this system is.  DO away with this system:

Buy Silver!

That which has no counter party risk!  That which keeps its molecular structure and stores its wealth, however its wealth is determined!  Take the money supply back!

Anyone who bought silver in the past year has had their asses HANDED to them. Buying it for TEOTWAWKI is one thing but buying it as an investment is a poor choice. Junk away.

They should have called it Icarus, not Euro.

Anyone else notice a slight decoupling of silver from gold this morn?  They normally chart in tandem.

"one thing but buying it as an investment"

Hahahaha, good one.

I don't know - I bought 40 oz of silver over the last year - price average, premium included, 33$ per - and I still have exactly 40 oz. It feels like a rather stable vehicle, doesn't it?

Your problem is that you think of silver as a speculative investment - but those who do understand silver see it as a safe storage vehicle for accumulated wealth. These are 2 very different purposes which by definition are polar opposites of each other.

j0nx's picture

Negative ghost rider. I bought it for end of the world and trading purposes if shit breaks down along with lots of ammo. As an investment not so much. That's my point. As an investment it is not a sound choice.

... and don't sell (unless if you really fucking need to)

FYI Saudi Arabia's domestic oil consumption has doubled in the past decade.  It is rising exponentially.

Countries may become oil independent in a way they may not prefer.  If there are no oil exports to buy, then you are independent.

In light of the Olympics, I would like to introduce a new event - Can Kicking.  We have already seen the exposition phase ofthis event introduction, so to bring it into the fold of the golbalist games is the logical next step.

I can see it now, audience members cheering on their respective central bank and their can kicking ability.  The good thing is that no amount of dexterity is needed, as old white men have been can kicking for a good forty years now.

I like it.  My only suggestion;

All bankers and government monetary "experts" are forced to play, the losers are publicly executed by guillotine.

HoofHearted's picture

And the winners probably need a tar and feather treatment too.

Can we dip the top three in molten gold, silver, and bronze?

Dr. Richard Head's picture

If I could up arrow more than onece I would.

JenkinsLane's picture

I think there should be something "Hunger Games-esque" for the losers instead of just the plain ole' Frenchie - something to keep the kids interested like.

How about another introductory sport for the London Olympics?

Can kicking? No one can bend it like Bernanke!

Same thing -

Our politicians own the real world record.

Yes. Groundhog Day...

Like clockwork, London session handing it over to NY session, a few more dips, and then an EOD rip to burn the sheep shorting under 1.214s

The best they will get today, is a 38.2% retrace.

Answer: Most likely.

Selling off to cover those Chipotle losses...

Chipotle loses bring on visions of diarrhea.

Have you tried Chipotleaway? It gets the bloodstains out of your underwear.

 eur/aud gives new definition to beating someone while they are down!

Itch's picture

Somehow i think that wont happen today.

i.e swiss 10yr in 7.6% and Germany in 4.1%...til take a brave man to go all in now. Nothing wrong with scalping the bottom though.

teh eurozone is on fiya!

Reversion? We dont want it... from this side of the world. Its good for our exports... to you!

Keep paying the bills guys!

Kind regards from Europe

monopoly's picture

And we are down less than .5%. Free markets. Right!

Carl Spackler's picture

Are you saying that ANOTHER rate is being manipulated by libor-ing bankers in Europe?

   I bet the Fed does nothing!

None of it matters.  We will probably close green on the day on no volume.

Why would Spanish and Italians want to leave from eurozone when it is nicely providing a devaluation? Spanish export sectors hit the all time record this March. And Americans are once again shorting eur-usd aka shorting themselves until turning blue.

dpr10's picture

you are being sarcastic right;;))if devaluation is such a good thing, why dont you exit;;))

mark7's picture

In the export sectors devaluation usually help a lot and in the US this euro devaluation makes even harder to close the trade deficit. Airbus vs. Boeing for example, who is going to win now more orders...Airbus.

Nobody For President's picture

Uh - Airbus wingspar problems ain't gonna go away if the Euro devalues - there are quality/production/reliability issues and problems with the 370 that actually matter a hell of a lot more to purchasers than the value of the Euro on any given day or month.

aka "If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going."

mark7's picture

What a bunch of bullshit. That problem has been solved already.

CheapBastard's picture

Strong dollar will pull us out of this great recession.



BlandJoe24's picture

Not saying this is how I want it to go, but today (lit tomorrow) is options expiration, so given the dominant short interest and the historical precedent, seems likely EURUSD and equities in general will shoot way up sometime today (to squeeze out the shorts).
