The Ironic Winners And Losers From The "Spain And Italy Bailout" Summit

Tyler Durden's picture

Presented with little comment but it seems that in yet another unintended consequence of the short-term haste to make noise ralative to any sustainable long-term solution, the nations that were supposed to benefit the most from the EU Summit are now the biggest losers as their equity markets are the only ones in Europe that are down from pre-Summit levels after today's sell-the-news events. It seems once again those looking at the equity markets to signal the success of an 'event' have been dangerously wrong-footed once again... Spain swung from an 8% gain to a 4% loss


Spain (pink) and Italy (red) have swung froim +8% kneejerk to -4% and -1% resepctively...


So perhaps finally we will stop hearing - the Summit must be a success, look at the performance of the equity market!!

The GOOD is now "Tied" to the BAD and the UGLY, Via the SACKS and JP Nanosecond NY Algos.

Everything else is Stale Bread...


You just gotta know that the "SYSTEM" is on its last legs, when this Shit rules the markets 24/7 ...

Is there still time to get a raincheck for that?

Gold still trading tick for tick with Spanish bond prices.


Today we get a correction in stocks, and everybody kneejerks and piles right back into U.S. Paper.

Watch for another new high in bonds, munis and all the rest.

It's amazing what you can do with a little hot QE cash.

The banksters can't rob Spain like it were Greece if they fix it.

Wonder what fool will buy the leaning tower once they move to Italy.

Spain's jobless immigrants take on banks over mortgages


Evictions, up to 200 a day, have become a symbol of Spain's 5-year economic crisis, started by a collapse in the housing and construction industry that put millions out of work.

We now see the massive demonstrations in Spain, Greece is slowly falling to the side of the road from exhaustion & what is in store for America this summer?


@d Edwards - yes, big government continues to be the problem & not the solution.  Need to read a book out about Americans finally taking a stand against federal corruption (big banks too big to fail & now big govt. too big to fail).


If only the political parties would allow the people's choice of candidates cause no one is excited about Obama nor Romney.  It's a corporate world with corporate govts & corporate govts.

 It's perplexing, how no one is paying attention to the "melt down" in Europe! Cheap ois rates and $ selling in an election year!

   Pathetic! FX risk is starting to rear it's ugly head. Oil is artificially high, over geopolitical risk. The shit storm should swing into full gear next week, as my canned corn is 100% more expensive than it was 2 weeks ago!
