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.

We Germans have a bottomless pocket, so we will pay all bills in the world.

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."
Excerpt from the Italian national anthem ("We are ready to die, we are ready to die, Italy has called")

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...

Treaty of Versailles screwed the Germans.

End result: it made the world safe for National Socialists and Commies.

It was a doublecross of immense proportions, enough to trigger mass insanity to a large part of the German population.

It's as if the bankers are telling the technocrats to crush the system!  I wonder, is it because the system is about to fall apart in front of everyone anyway?!  Hmmm....

Rumors, the new weapons of financial mass destruction. Let's print rumors instead of fiat - probably more efficient as it has immediate effect on the markets.

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

Plenty of good technical traders are getting fility rich.  The ones that say it doesn't work just don't know what they're doing.  I can say this because i've witnessed it for sometime now first hand.  Too bad im a broke bastard that paid off all his debt and don't have any left to play the game.

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.

I ' m out and well.  I bought a little house in a small village in Austria, surrounded by small farmers with cows, pigs and vegetables. And a river with mountain-fresh water nearby. 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.
