Idiot Market Jumps On 12 Hour Old News Of Yet Another Chinese Euro Bailout, Since Refuted

Tyler Durden's picture

Apparently the latest news driving the market is this from AP, which hit the tape 12 hours ago:

China and other emerging powers have agreed to help eurozone countries facing a debt crisis by taking part in a bailout fund, the China Daily said Wednesday, citing a source close to EU decision makers.


The state-owned English language newspaper said leading emerging economies would help to finance the rescue fund through the International Monetary Fund, which would boost their voting rights in the Washington-based lender.


The agreement may be written into the final document at a second emergency summit of European leaders, due to begin later Wednesday, the unidentified source told the newspaper.


Further details on China's investment were not provided.

This would be wonderful, if only it wasn't refuted 3 short hours later by none other than Reuters:

China has backed efforts to tackle the euro zone's debt crisis but there is currently nothing concrete concerning support for a special purpose investment vehicle (SPIV) of the euro zone's bailout fund, a Chinese diplomat said on Wednesday.


"China always supported the EU's effort to deal with the crisis and has done its bit," said the diplomat, who is based in Brussels. "China will continue to do so but, with regard to the special purpose vehicle, there is nothing concrete and detailed."

Don't be like that Tyler, can't we just PRETEND it's new?  The only thing we have to fear is reality and math!  If we conquer those, stocks will go to the moon!  Stop trying to hinder progress!

hope it goes higher....I want to grab FAZ at 40.

TZA slides faster, volume is about the same.  Both FAZ and TZA are at the "buy" level again depending on the time of day you are looking...

I'm no fan of Paul Krugman, but I don't doubt these numbers.

Re: Iceland/Ireland CDS -

NYT, Oct. 25 - 'Prices are down from a spike last summer, but still very high. And for the record: as of posting time, the Irish 5-year CDS was 776, the Icelandic 5-year CDS 280.'

From Golemxiv:

'Unemployment in Iceland is 7% while in Ireland it is about 14%.'

These numbers are not lost on anyone in Europe. They all know what the answer is, it's just a matter of time. First ones out win.

I can hardly wait to see how the market reacts to this:


Just in: AP (submitted 9-Nov-1513) Spanish emissary Hernando Cortez has informed the European financial leadership that he has secured gold backed funding from Banco Montezuma Mexicana sufficient to recapitalize all Eurozone countries and banks.

hilarious.  its baffling me that the markets continue to melt up.  especially as the haircut clause will be creating a domino effect on recaps and sovereign debt confidence to be sure, per dow jones: Bigger Haircuts Would Make Greek CDS Trigger More Likely:  

NDXTrader's picture

Not to mention Brazil, India and Russia have all said repeatedly they will not participate

Well, it gave us a nice countertrend a-b-c intraday pop.

Back to the lows, bitchez!

Knowing that underlying fundamentals always catch up to and beat down unicorns, rainbows & pixie dust, I find the short term moves (whether 3 years on a longer chart or 3 minutes on a much shorter one) comical.

Math, while cold and sterile, at least never lies (statistics do when 'massaged,' but that's not math; that's man warping or abusing math, and falsifying some part of the equation towards an ulterior motive), and that's where to always look to in order to glean the truth.

Math says the only 'solutions' to the EuroDebtapocalpse are a) extremely painful for equity and credit markets, or b) extremely painful for equity and credit markets.

Take your pick, and get your half-life bets on!

Or they could print and make it extremely painful on the masses instead.

The rich cant possibly be taking a haircut can they?

Well, reuters, like the guardian, should be another media outlet that should be shutdown for market manipulation...

... well, if this wasn't a fascist society it would anyway.

Fascist, socialist, communist, is there really any difference?  We believe that there are but two forms of government:  1) People on top-government on bottom or 2) government on top-People on bottom.  As Americans, we firmly believe our Founding Fathers tried their level best to give us #1.  How it slipped through our hands is well documented and sad sad sad.......

I heard from my brothers dry cleaners cousin's girlfriend who was just in getting her nails done and she heard from the girl doing her nails that he best friends neighbor in China who runs a rickshaw overheard some men talking about a bailout.

So this must be true.

TooRichtoCare's picture

I heard it's cos Germany is gonna take over Crete & Mykonos in exchange for bailing out the Greeks all on its own, and the French & co don't have to do anything now, and can spend their money bailing themselves out.

And now they won't have to have a designated German who wakes up at 5:00am and puts out towels all on all the prime pool-side loungers whilst the rest of them sleep until 10:00am.....they'll own the whole damn thing & will tell the Brits to bugger off and put their beach towels by the entrance to the toilets!

I bet the statement says "We sure would like the emerging economies to put money in our SPV" - market up 40 points on the wish

I made the mistake of keeping a stock for 23 seconds. sorry.

Let Liesman run with this old news, and see if the algos can push S&P past 1238 to break through the bearish H&S on the 5-day.

SPY was just filling the gap up and is bouncing off of that.  Not every move is based on news.

Argentina Orders Oil, Mining Exporters to Repatriate Funds Q


The decision by Fernandez, who nationalized the $24 billion pension fund industry and has called for a limit on purchases of farmland by foreigners, is part of an effort to slow capital flight estimated at $3 billion per month that is draining central bank reserves. The policy may make it harder to attract foreign direct investment to Argentina that the United Nations estimates fell 30 percent in the first half of the year.


...for those thinking about moving to Argentina....



machineh's picture

The other side of this story is that they will have to let the peso slide ... maybe to 6 to the dollar ... making Argentina cheaper for foreigners with dollars or euros.
