They are going to have to give up Pulling an imaginary rabbit out a Hat now!   They can't just run on rumors over and over again as this proves all the rumors were lies. 

I would say GAME OVER!

There is a redemption on Irish debt of over €4 Billion Euro on November 11th. That EFSF auction was for meant to cover that. Interesting to see what happens before then.

Added to my euro short a few hours ago. Thanks to zero hedge for pointing out the record euro short last week. This whole episode is understood by the main market participants. Is this the beginning of the end for the euro? Who cares, for the rest of us this may be a great chance to make some great fiat money from this chaos...

George Papandreou's announcement of the Greek referendum, has been a terrific boost to the spirit in the streets of Europe, however much he is criticised by European leaders, and whatever the consequences to the markets.

Even if Papandreou's government falls, it may be very hard for any subsequent government to 'cancel' this popular referendum.

Papandreou may have redeemed himself with his bold act favouring the will of the European common peoples. European populism may have just begun a great new phase.

Recommend to everyone a hearty laugh with the art of William Banzai yesterday, especially his 'The Great Euro Race' which may be an apt photo snapshot of the European sovereign situation:

WTF has caused the Euro to rise 140 pips while I slept?  Seriously, was the Pacific Ocean a huge buyer last night?  Are you saying it was a China to the Rescue story...AGAIN...that caused this rise?

OK...previously, I would have been content to see all MF Global managers locked up...but now...serioulsy...let's just arrest them all.  Everything on Wall Street has become entirely criminal...everything...everyone...every broker dealer...all of them...if China to the Rescue AGAIN is the reason.  Fucking Marxist bankers!

Might have to do with the 600+ pip move off the highs and those with profits not wanting to call Banana Ben's hand?

I'm surprised they were even able to sell 3 billion EFSF bonds. Why would anyone buy that crap. I'd rather invest in tulips than that black hole.

WTF they can't get off a EUR 3B bond and we are going to rally.

This is like rallying on Operation Overlord failing.

This is insane.
