Live Webcast Of ECB Press Conference, Or The Last Chance For Today's "Deus Ex"

Tyler Durden's picture

Minutes ago, the ECB already delivered a major disappointment to those most desperate for a Deus Ex intervention: those praying for an ECB rate cut were EastLB (0.5%), and BNP, Credit Agricole, Margin Stanley and Nordbank, all of whom were hoping for a 25 bp cut. Incidentally, all banks that are, shall we say it, liquidity challenged. They did not get their prayers answered. Now, the prayer goes that Draghi will magically hint at the NEW LTRO (not LTRO 3, thank you Apple). In reality he will most likely continue dragging the old party line - economy is weak, we hope governments fix it, but ECB stands ready, etc, hardly the stuff of "Bath Salt your Face Off" rally legends. Watch the whole thing live at the link below.

Last chance....and this time...we're serious!

We at the ECB stand ready to run our printing press at %110, until they burn out!!! Or until Germany tells us what to do....

Eurusd's got some cement boots on at the moment. LOL.

Reporter: Mr. Draghi, honestly what kind of shape is the Euro region in?


Draghi: Oh, we are totaly and completely fucked.


Just a little fantasy of mine, where some government official actually tells the truth....

Well, you've always got the interviews of them after they leave government.

In other news, a Keynesian Econ Professor's letter to Draghi was found in a dumpster outside the ECB headquarters

"Oh please Draghi, wont you please print more money?  we dont want a real economy and sound money.  we would much rather have distorted market prices for every asset class there is.  You are the master central planner and we obey your wishes.  In order to show you our loyalty, I would like to invite you to this year's Harvard Econ Professor Lemon Party and toss your salad."

Just watched about 10 minutes of obfuscation and dissembling (otherwise known as B.S.)

How can anyone do anything with the lying at such a high level. I watched a Nixon speech as a pallative and he gives 1,000% more truth. Listen to other older politician's speeches, they are mostly attempting to be honest with the people. Maybe because the press used to call them on it in the past. With the snakes we have today, we get riddles and nonsense, they never answer the question.

Partially the fault of higher education and it's deep descent in bullshit as education, partially a centralized media, and partially our own vast laziness.

Just lookin at this guy, I'd sell anything European. But apparently there's still 'good newses' out there since Europe checked to the Fed, which certainly has 'magical stuff' to give us. Oh hooray.

Or, as of today, magical "sound bites" of false propaganda.

I heard "bouyant" and......"soft data"......this guy is clearly full of sh!t.

Never fear, this market has an almost otherworldly ability to ignore the bad and focus on the hope (now Spain banks will be fixed, yields will come down and all will be good until September when US problems such as Bush cuts, debt ceiling, unsure election and auto cuts are heaped on world issues)...

They left all the pressure on Ben. Hence, Lockhart had to give away the leak that there may be an extension of op. twist. I have the hunch there will be big disappointment on Jun 20.

He looks more like Mario the Zombie

Global Hunter's picture

I thought he looked like a corpse since the day they dragged him out and placed him in the spotlight, my thought was that he was the best deviant they could find (ie get the banker with enough deviant behaviours and addictions who will say anything asked of him in order to get the things he wants in his free time such as blow and boys).

I am for freedom of speech, but this post is so fucked up wrong I find myself challenged. 

All of us here enjoy annonymity. If that is the real name of ORI, outed by someone else, this is just wrong. ORI may have outed himself, I don't know. The spirit of this post sucks ass. 

Blue Pill,

What did ORI ever do to you? Eat your face off? What? You took a lot of time to create that post, a lot of thought. If you hate the guy, you just gave him a whole lot of your time, attention, and energy which you will never get back. Was it worth it?
