Does a stockmarket crash if you put your head in the sand?
It does if you put your head up your ass
BERANKE WILL TALK THE MARKETS BACK UP!!
a topic.... hmmm....
THE FED WILL PRINT A PICTURE OF A GOLD BAR ON THE DOLLAR BILLS TO BOOST CONFIDENCE OF THE DOLLAR!
RIOTS SPREAD FROM ENGLAND TO THE REST OF THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT!! (lot's of discussions on facebook and twitter seem to point into that direction for the moment)
Yeah, just like they spreaded from Spain into the rest of europe a few month ago ? I dont think so, it needs more than that, hyperinflation or so
There must be something in the rumour. Sarkozy has jetted back to Paris and is dashing about re-assuring everyone that their fiscal plans will be in place to keep the AAA rating.
He wouldn't cut short his holiday if there wasn't a credible threat.
he forgot to take his high heels slippers to walk on the beach....
Yo Snap! No, wait. "Sacré Le Snap!"
Would love to short the Euro...but the perpetual interventions there by China make it damn near impossible to enter the trade well.
I suppose the best way to see the trade is to take it longer term. Just as gold will finally go parabolic when the end comes, so too would a short euro trade finally be a home run. It seems like shorting the euro is ONLY an end of the world trade.
Short the Euro against the Canadian dollar.
I DOWNGRADED THE FRENCH A LONG TIME AGO!!
IT WAS 1976, THE YEAR THAT I WAS BORN!
I though you Belgians and the French loved each other. No, no, sorry, I'm mistaken. I was thinking of the Belgians and the Belgians, no, oh, that doesn't work either.
As a nation, you lot don't really get on with anyone. Have some patience, though. Given current demographic trends, in 2018 Brussels could vote to twin with Mecca.
Nice wankel piston you got there
WE GET ON WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE!!!
There's me, myself and of course I!
What I love most about yesterday's stick save rally is how much volume was churned through at the highs. Fresh meat.
Anyway, Germans, are you reading this? You can now bail out the Frenchies now too. Throwing good money after bad. Does that translate into German?
Don't know if you're a gamer, but "fresh meat" is the scariest thing I've heard in a game.
<<< hrowing good money after bad. Does that translate into German? >>>
Werfen Sie gutes Geld schlechtem Geld.
Eher stolpern :-P
DM 2.0 oder RMB sofort ?
Freakin' funny, SD.
does it even matter? in the end nobody will/can pay this. i feel good this finally all comes to an end and PM prices go ballisic
fade outdoor bistro's?
If for some reason the French are not able to kick in their share of the EFSF, EUtopia would be in some serious trouble. Germany would do what it could, but it would not be enough to save the Euro currency.
you underestimate germany ;- )
The French have a history of that.
And Down Goes Frazier.
Yes. It's puzzling. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this before. I would recommend that we put the unit back in operation and let it fail. It should then be a simple matter to track down the cause. We can certainly afford to be out of communication for the short time it will take to replace it.
Now denied by Warren Woody's which affirmed its AAA rating, outlook stable...
Hell with it just halt the world!
That was quick. I thought waterfall sparkles was going to chime in and save the day. Where is our Waterfall Sparkles btw? Perhaps a little futures pixie dust is in order?
Bernankes with his herd of pink unicorns filling bags with tasty Skittles that they shit piles of. HFT traders gotta eat ya know.
Downgrade a great nation like France? Heck, you might as well downgrade the USA. Oh...
Better put a bottle of red wine in the microwave and put some cheese in the freezer because the party will soon start!
viva la france aaa
Now Fitch also affirmed AAA, outlook stable...
One day will be witness to THE EVENT that sends this entire world financial system into the abyss...
Maybe that is why we continue to watch?
Oh my God !
We are all gonna die !
Reggie currently at +1100 %
We was all gonna die in the first place...may as well go out with a bang and a party! The trick is figuring out what you can do that will cause others later to make a statue of you. Hmmmm.
S&P has no intention of downgrading France. This rumor is noise. Read the article on it today in the ZH docket.
5-yr. yield now .91%
Why not downgrade Uncle Gorilla to AA- and watch the 5-yr. go to .51%???
Banca intesa is a recent creation that includes Cariplo+Banco Ambrosiano Veneto+Banca Commerciale Italiana+Banco di Napoli+Istituto Bancario San Paolo di Torino+Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze+other minor banks from south and central Italy.
It 's a big conglomerate still full of plenty old school workers and old time garbage. The joke on Banca Commerciale Italiana was: they hire 3 people just for the mailing service, 1 to put it in the envelop, 1 to lick it and one to stamp it. And that's a bank from Milan...one can only imagine Banco di Napoli what holds in its belly. Not to mention Banco Ambrosiano, born from the still hot ashes of Calvi Banco Ambrosiano.
SocGen now down 11,5%...that is worth something right?
Here's an "In the Mood" video repleat with tail spin:
futures down 248... fire up the Teleprompter?
