Futures Turn Negative, EUR Back To Pre-Summit Levels Following Global Easefest

Tyler Durden's picture


In continuing the quantum physics scramble of the past 48 hours in the aftermath of the potential Higgs Boson discovery which confirms mass exists (and will soon be blamed for America's obesity epidemic) we ask if three of the world's largest central banks eased and futures turned red, did three of the world's largest central banks actually ease? Because if today is any indication, either all the EURUSD-ES algos are being furiously shut down right now to prevent risk from being dragged far lower, or we have reached peak central planner intervention. In other news, the entire EURUSD ramp since last week's summit is now gone, which incidentally is just what Germany always wanted.

EURUSD tumbles:

to retrace 100% of the EU Summit gains...

and S&P 500 futures are up a measly 1pt...

Just hang on to your dollars my friend - if you have any. Sell your gold if you have any left. Try to avoid buying gas, it will be half the price next week.

Got USD?

central banks have turned the markets into somewhere only traders dare to tread.  The current market levels are in no way indicative of the underlying economy, but rather driven by policy.

When you leave it to the traders, they will buy the rumour and sell the fact, so the markets were seeing this as a top.


Is this what they wanted?

When the EU head puppets figure out how to get their sovereign bond rates near zero, so the serious printing can start, then it will be clear sailing to infinity.....and beyond......

They set the rules so they can also break the rules, right..???

In a public call, 160 German-speaking Economics Professors, condemned the decisions of the EU summit last week as false. Germany and the other 'financially solid' states are continually being forced to extend their liability risk.

No massive money printing and everything goes down (and USD up).

I think you're the one who doesn't get it. The dollar goes "up" against a bunch of other shit currencies. It's a race to the bottom.

Correct, the plan has always been to kill all fiat in order to replace them with a single world currency.  Economics has never been about money anyway, power and control (of natural resources in particular) has always been what all this gaming is really about.  Who will be the better slaves and who gets to be the slave master.  Place your bets, the casino is open.

I don’t know if you realise it but it’s gone up against gold too.

It’s been going up for a year now and in real terms not just compared to other currencies.

Check the facts rather than just regurgitating perma bulls crap.

Lots of fiats have gone up against gold, what's your point?  Just because a fiat currency goes up against gold, it doesn't mean I would want to hold it.  PMs are manipulated by all central banks.

Let me know when a currency is freely exchangable FOR A FIXED amount of gold, then I will be interested in holding it.  FYI, I sold some euros last week for gold on the euro strength.  I may buy more euros on the weekness.  This is how the game is played as we all race to the bottom.

No one in their right mind should be holding any fiat for too long right now.

My point is simple, PMs are in a bearish posture until there is massive money printing

How can they be bearish if their purchasing power has remained the same? 

Moreover, ZIRP is essentially money printing!!!!!!!  Now CBs are proposes and implementing NIRP!!!!

Unless you really believe that there is no cost associated with creating capital, especially when you create no real value.

In that case, I have a couple bridges for sale that you may be interested in.

The announcements seemed "sloppy". It's as if no one knew they were coming, or if they did they didn't care. If it's a "co-ordinated" move then there are a few other players missing. Very interesting.

Coordinated action by all central banks.  What could possibly go wrong?  Please, share your thoughts;

1) They get the inflation they weren't looking for - hyperinfaltion.

2) They kill all fiats (in order to feed us all a new one)
