EURUSD Sliding On Anti-Rumor From Europe - Headlines "No More Money To Greece From Eurozone, IMF"

Tyler Durden's picture


This is not the rumor that the central planning doctor ordered. This time from Dow Jones:

  • No Intention By Euro Zone, IMF To Give More Money To Greece, Say Dow Jones Sources -DJ
  • Major Greece creditors made clear EUR130 bn bailout loan "won't be increased by a single euro" - DJ

It remains to be clear if Greece will even get the €130 billion loan still, but that is a different story. EURUSD, and stocks, not happy.

Legarde should be her name...

LeGarde says collapse in demand could lead to global depression.

That's already happening in the general economy.  Demand for non-essentials is collapsing already, and housing is in full collapse.

Of course she doesn't care about the general economy. 

She's talking about collapse of demand in financial markers, specifically collapse of buy-side demand for sovereign debt bonds.

And yes it would lead to global depression financial markets this time, not the general economy (already in depression).

She's warning the sovereign debt bubble will collapse unless somebody keeps buying the stuff, inferring ECB should keep buying it ...or start buying it ...or start buying more of it.

She's admitting IMF can't keep buying it, they're running out of money.

I would welcome a sovereign debt collapse.  Bring it on.  Nobody buys any more sovereign debt.  Pop that last remaining bubble in the financial world.  Watch euro sovereign debt collapse.  Watch US sovereign debt collapse too.  And yields skyrocket.

It's happening in Greece now.   Greece govt bonds are collapsing in value, yields skyrocketing, because nobody wants them

...except hedge funds ...because they think they'll be able to sue Greece for full recovery ...which ain't gonna happen.

"Siam pronti alla morte. Siam pronti alla morte, L'Italia chiamò."

The most ironic national hymn of all. Italy never calls, or at least not the right number... I usually sing it under the shower, right after Einigkeit, Recht und Freiheit...

IMF "loan"? What kind of a BS term is that?

Try IMF GRANT. When you don't ever get your money back, it's called a GRANT. Fucking European schmucks.

Germany needs to learn that remembering their history of hyperinflation means nothing if they don't prevent it from happening again. The Greeks lived off the ocean for thousands of years. Let them go back to their roots.

traders dont care if things move up or down. as long as it moves they make money riding the waves. if the market moves up or down the journalist will always discover (sarc) some news why its moving.

 price is king

trade what you see not what you think and cut your losses short and let your profits run that is the way to make money in this broken market

Does this mean buy the dip and wait for the damage control headlines tomorrow? Or will reality make a difference for more than 1 day?  Too bad all the normal people could probably make a good go at civilization but when the trillionaires are in trouble bombs start dropping. Problem is bombs today are just a little more advanced.

Gold and silver coins, a foodsupply,  some cash in different forms, and a 4WD Jeep. Some beer-rounds in the local Bierstube to make friends does the rest. Goodbye to the financial illusionists.

German banks did not mind floating the weaker EU countries as this supported German exports.  The Germans took the Southern EU children to the county fair loaded them up on cotton candy, hot dogs, soda and ice cream.  Now, when a laxative or cure for sour stomach is needed (debt forgiveness or bond holder "haircuts") are not in the offing.  The Germans (banks) want it both ways. 


At the time the Euro was originated it was Thatcher who was the loudest opponent stating "didn't the whole world have to go to war twice to stop these people."  And who designs a single currency with no common Treasury (bond authority) or at least normalized tax structures across the continent.  


Now Germany will not yield and continues flogging austerity programs to further weaken the already weak EU nations.  All modern warfare being fought through financial and technology weapons of mass destruction.  


Hitler in his wildest dreams could not have imagined the coming German dominance of  Europe.  


Heard Draghi was hopping from trains to planes preaching the gospel of austerity across Italy and with no coins in pocket was seen humping a soda machine for a Coca Cola.


God help us all.
