Latest European Bailout Plan Fizzles In Record Time

Tyler Durden's picture





 

UPDATE: The Bundesbank, as usual, ready to pur some 'reality-based' cold-water on the situation:

  • *BUNDESBANK SAYS IT'S CRITICAL OF ECB COLLATERAL DECISION
  • *BUNDESBANK SAYS IT WON'T ACCEPT COLLATERAL IT DOESN'T HAVE TO

They came, they spoke, they spiked EURUSD; but now just over 90 minutes later the full force and furor of the 3 horse-men (and 1 woman) of the Euro-zone have tried and failed to get any market belief in their constant tirade of the same facts and denials. No matter what Monti, Hollande, and Rajoy say, Merkel's reply summarizes to: "No Free Lunch" and while markets exhibit their 'spasmodic' response function to any comment from Europe, sooner now (rather than later) we revert to pre-bullshit levels. As a reminder, the half-life of the Spanish Bailout was 7 hours as we noted here which must make this total reversion particularly worrying for the 'elite'.

Europe catches the flu and MS catches pneumonia. So much for that rally on a "better than expected" downgrade, now trading at $14.16 (by the way, nice job filling the gap on from yesterday's close to the morning open).

Note: Has anyone seen an article anywhere mentioning that there is a strong alignment of investors between Moody's and WFC? Forbes even had two articles last night making the case that WFC is focused on domestic markets and was, therefore, exempt from the ratings review. Not a single mention of the bath tub man.

FWIW, MS is not making waves with traders "selling on strength".

None of the banks are, for that matter. A bunch of blue chip names at the top. So if everyone is holding on a Friday, as the entire sector trades green, what does that tell you?

I couldnt agree more and I feel around my friends and wife, family etc. that I am the only one who actually thinks and says..WTF? this is bullshit, no?

I feel like I am a in a concentration camp and/or a POW camp and feel like this is bullshit....this brainwash shit doesnt work with me.

 

Everyone just looks at me like I am crazy for thinking and saying something....like the prison guards will shoot me down or something....

its simple.  Countries supplying no good paying middle class jobs, FAIL. Noone left to payoff debt, noone left to buy shit.  All these years the market cheered and rewarded companies for laying of employees, were just in actuality cheering the tighting of the rope.

 

SHow me a prosperous country, I'll show you a prosperous middleclass.  If plutocracy worked, the banana republics would be nirvanas, they are in reality shit holes.

 

ANyone telling you things will turn around, ask them- what industry or sector is prepared to create MILLIONS of well paying jobs with benefits?  Because thats what we need, about 20 million good paying jobs in the US alone.

Banana republics are shitholes, EXCEPT for the top < 1%, who live like fucking royalty.  Ask the top 1% in the US (or anywhere) if they give a flying fuck about how prosperous the country, or the world, as a whole is.

Retore the fucking rule of laws and contracts, allow for true price discovery and real consequences for BAD behavior (i.e. bankruptcy with the management, owners and shareholders paying back the creditors instead of the taxpayer).

 

Then all this bullshit fixes itself and compensation will return to thosse who's labor actually leads to the creation of real value (and not paper "products" of financial destruction).

 

Time to reap what you have sewn paper-pushers and political puppets.

It seems so weird, that with all the different incantations and spells they've tried, they still haven't found the magic words that will resolve this whole "we've spent more than we made for decades, and don't seem to be able to hide it anymore" issue and get the economy moving.  Keep trying guys! (and girl!) I'm sure those magic words exist, so just keep tossing out the promises, stern commitments, and maybe if you could cook up some fake statistics to demonstrate that things are improving that might help too.  Fuckheads...

Quick ECB, you need to print faster, give more and more and more bailout money to the PIIGS.

PIIGS,  Keep on sucking up the bailout money and asking for more. Germany can require it's people to retire at 100 to satisfy the club-med south.

PS, Germany, France wants your money too.

The EU hit an iceberg and the bailout isn't working. Bigger and biger pails needed to bail out the PIIGS.

No, it just means somebody might finally have to fucking DO something, instead of just mouthing soothing words and floating bullshit rumors.  But hey, who knows, maybe Europe will defy all precedent and stoically crash and burn, rather than pushing the fucking EASY button available to every gov't with access to a printing press.

 

Germany's fucked, as far as enforcing austerity, but I'm sure they saw it coming when they got into the whole Euro mess, and presumably they have some sort of exit strategy up their sleeve.

You guys only understand politics in terms of market perception and INSTANT currency or stock evaluation, not in the longer span which is a roller coaster, now without a compass; as this scares everybody shitless. If the market is a dodo it sends no coherent signals. Admitting that is like admitting fiat God is dead! Brain dead market! 

If the politics are incoherent each new shot just reveberates on the tarmac like a lost bullet. The kings cannot resuscitate the pope and church. No white fumes just black ones! 

Supposing you looked at it differently. Supposing your market perception was wrong; as the market is inefficient and manipulated and therefore incoherent and like a rudderless shiP, WHAT WOULD WE CONCLUDE?

The Pope will stay dead as the kings have taken over! And PM manipulation is the proof of the pudding. No safe havens from monetary manipulation! Acid test that markets are dead. 

Wowieeee....the Pope and church are dead. Our markets do not bow to any supply-demand catechism anymore, to any logic of a free trade paradigm. As money is no longer money, honest medium of exchange of real goods. Its funny money and has no value except in the electronic world! We have lost our Reserve compass for all intents and purposes. So even surrogate monies, like euros look relatively safe at core; even as europe burns in the peripherals.

Merkel is saying the same thing but she is also saying there will be banking union and sovereign to banking risk severance. Once that occurs we can see how the dodo markets react to the new picture imposed from above, like new gospel of laicity, temporal reasoning, not free market gospel but central policy market. 

 Market reaction, as it is in current decay, has been sterlised, by JPM type capers, even in PM safe haven places. Witness the PM situation.  That is the acid test. As those who run the markets, the WS/CIty cabal, are losing all credibility every day as their debts and off balance sheet shenanigans have destroyed investor confidence in their very word. They protect themselves not the investor. 

The Euro crisis is a real crisis for a faked reason, funny money logic gone mad. The current banking reshuffle in Eurozone may well allow the fake to come out from the rest of the baked cake. Its in everybody's interest.

How? We don't know that. But it won't be what you expect as seen through the logic of a broken "free" market that cannot generate any true feedback. 

This is the true message of the grand canyon divide looming up. The markets will officially be called dead. And although the Politicians and central bankers have no solutions they will weed out the power of the toxic banksta shells, all the while allowing the Oligarchy money to flow to safe havens, whose nature will have to be defined in the Grand Canyon conference, once Potus has been elected in november. Until then, Merkel will rule the roost and screw the Banksta cabal with her central bank logic. Lagarde is now on that same page.

Its politics that is now center stage not the market. Meanwhile the Brics, are like the natives getting restless, as first world continues to wobble in unstable limbo. This adds to market incoherence. Six months of extreme purgatory ahead. Watch out for the icebergs! 

It is a rant...don't lose any sleep on it!
