Greece Announces Troika Call Is Over - Announcement Expected Shortly

Update 2: here comes the rhetoric:

  • Greek finance minister official says Greece is close to a deal with the Troika

...and back down:

  • Greek finance minister says some work is still needed to quantify measures

Update 1: Sigh, looks like just more talk:

  • VENIZELOS, EU, IMF CONFERENCE CALL 'PRODUCTIVE,' MINISTRY SAYS
  • GREECE SAYS CALL WAS `PRODUCTIVE AND SUBSTANTIVE DISCUSSION
  • VENIZELOS, EU, IMF TO HOLD ANOTHER CALL AT SAME TIME ON SEPT 20
  • GREECE SAYS CALL WILL BE REPEATED AT THE SAME TIME TOMORROW
  • GREECE SAYS EXPERTS TEAM TO ELABORATE FURTHER ON DATA TOMORROW

Wonder why the EURUSD melted up in the past hour on no news? Perhaps it has something to do with this:

  • GREEK FIN MINISTRY SAYS TROIKA CONFERENCE CALL OVER, ANNOUNCEMENT EXPECTED SHORTLY - RTRS

In other news, all previous 'statements' from Greece and the EU that this call would continue into tomorrow, or later, and that no statement would come, can now be assumed to have been yet another batch of innocent and well-meaning lies.
