is this just the beginning

Just a 'continuing' ... of a euro-farce yet to unfold in multiple stages yet

Need that big 'crisis' yet, to allow the big QE, bond-buying & etc

Still might be a while ... maybe later in August, maybe September, maybe even later ...

Our popular Euro-Football match of 'Tough Germanic Bankers' vs 'Latin Money Printers' is getting good ratings, so the show can continue for a while

People around the world believe it is a 'Real Fight' here ... though it is actually the Pro-Wrestling-Model at work, like in the US Presidential Pro-Wrestling of 'the Mormon' vs 'the Muslim' aka Gay-Basher vs the Gay-Arranger ...

As Jim Sinclair has long said:

« QE is coming. About that there is no doubt ... but not on anyone's schedule ... »

Tell that to the guy who just had his offer filled at 1.24.

I swear to god they are engineering this market with their commentary and shit.  Like, they fucking time everything they do, just fuckin right.  especially in currency markets.  It's amazing.

What is it about "headline reading algorithm" you do not understand?

Do you think the algorithm designers cannot talk to the media to tell them what is looked for?

STOP TRADING.  Get out of the market.  It no longer exists.

Um.. It’s called “Communications Policy”.

Back in the days when there was a semblance of morality, it was called “propaganda”.

And yes, it is an engineering process.

...they have only been doing it for the guts of a few hundred years. Big fish eat the little ones mate,(when they can).

Thank you for taking the time out from your chaotic masturbation schedule to correct me.

Why the negativity? I found it slightly humorous.

This crazy back andf forth must be hurting investor confidence.

Hype Alert's picture

The machines love it.  Investors, not so much.  The more retail investors check out of the racket, the more it's just left to the machines and becomes easier to "intervene",  with what was once called manipulation.

The euro is irreversible.  I do not think that means what he thinks it means.

Biggvs's picture

The Euro dropped during my statements? Inconceivable!

First it was Simon "Harry" Potter, and now Mario "Vizzini" Draghi.

maybe he just chose his words wisely. 

Notice.  He never lies.  He never does anything illegal.  Ever. 


In fact this entire collapsing of the world economy... was completely legal. 

The only people that have broke the law are the occasional trader, pretty much every bank trader, and politicians.

The only people to blame?  The sheep.  Crime?  Embracing Idiocracy.

I used to enjoy laughs like this almost everyday on ZH.  Ah, thanks for that.  :-)

I thought EU had 5 days to sort it all out, as per Soros.

Didn't occur to you that you are in the can did it?  Just saying.

That explains the vertigo.  I thought it was just my hangover.

do bank turds have wings?

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

No...no...we have it all wrong. Draghi is just setting up the markets for the next verbal blow job.

<Yes dear, I just said blow job on ZH. No dear, I'll never say blow job on ZH again.>

Financial porn without the laugh sound track just doesn't do it for me. Butt......whatever floats your financial boat is fine by me. :)

Draghi is just setting up the markets for the next verbal blow job.

...and when Draghi drags Timmah into the mess, it'll be Rim Tim Tim.

(Urgh, I threw up a little just typing that.)

just wait until everyone comes back from vacation....

Hype Alert's picture

What were they thinking?

Cursive's picture

The fact that reporters are openly mocking Draghi (who looks like a cheesy Peter Sellers spoof character) only exposes the financial media for the fawning idiots they are.  Why did no one in the financial media (save Zero Hedge and a few individual commenters like Mark Grant) call Draghi on his bluff from last week.

LIESman isn't talking about his rod, thats for sure.

And later today, as usual, we'll be staring in disbelief as the board turns green

Nasdaq went green for a moment already.

And all this because the ECB can't buy more debt? Step back and think about it. This is like a classic seventh grade boy-girl breakup/makeup/breakup..........

Take your medicine, Drago.
