Market Response To SarKel Emergency Meeting: Dump

Tyler Durden's picture


Remember what happened to the market following Trichet's disastrous press conference two weeks ago? Well, cue it up, because it is deja vu all over again. The second Sarkozy said that neither the Eurobonds are coming as expected, nor the EFSF will be expanded, the sell off began. The only question the market has is when is the next emergency meeting?

No Eurobonds and EURUSD not plummeting? Maybe it is because the HFT robots don't understand French and German.

Who predicted that the EU was an unrealistic, cobbled together dream of Hopium and Unicorn Farts before Hopium and Unicorn Farts were household words?


Die, EU, die (it's really for the best, and in the interest of those who wish not to see crowding out of sovereignty nor unified [let alone a one world, ultimately] government).

Let individuals reign supreme, bitchez.

Order out of Chaos.  TPTB will provide more unification as the answer not less and the sheep will follow their Shepard.  I wish it wasn't so, but history is on the side of TPTB getting what they want in the end.


Instead we should have more and more regionalization, and more representative government not less. The individual should reign supreme again, but some individuals are more important then others(in their minds) and they wont let that happen.

OT (maybe): Has anyone noticed, in the US, that State Farm Insurance is now a bank?

I've said for four years that Obamacare was not forced down our throats to provide medical care for everyone, but to save the insurance companies - shrinking customer base, shrinking investments for payouts. Now that Obamacare is a failure, we're allowing all the insurance companies to become banks, like the Squid, for banking bailouts at the Fed Window.

Can someone with more experience compare the cost of bailing out the world's banks, to bailing out the world's insurance companies?

Since the bulk of our bailout money went overseas, I have to assume we'll be bailing out all the EU insurance companies, too?

Isn't this bullish for the EU?

That is called the TARP Tantrum, born in 2008 when Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY) initially refused to go along with Hank Paulson's bullshit 'tanks in the streets & Martial Law' ruse, and killed the epically bad bailout (Bunning later said 'f**k it, I'll resign, and let the people get what they deserve since I have no support in trying to protect the taxpayers from the assraping Wall Street is about to pound upon them" - no an exact quote).

I can't believe they're using such an obvious and already done trick.

Then again, facing their economic & financial reality may be causing them to get net real short, for a real long time (and that would be the smart play).

RoboTarder will show up on the next day/minute/hour that indexes pop (intraday or futures), to claim Uncle Gorilla will win.

Little does he know that Uncle Gorilla presides over Banana Republic, or that Bananas&BubblesBezelbubBernankstain has done a bang up job of using retarded monetary policy to actually break the economy and the markets.

You keep looking for exogenous factors for market movement. That's what makes ZH what it is. But maybe, once in awhile, you might tip the hat to the Prechterites and EWP folks who've been claiming that markets are moved mainly by endogenous factors, i.e., the technical traders.

But that's your call.

Sarkoleon calls an ER mtg every other day (it seems) with Merkel and she CAVES. I knew they were planning this crap pan-euro bond and to say that the debt levers would be ensconsed in German and French law is BullSHI$. There's a case going on in German courts now that the people have brought against Merkel for doing the VERY FIRST deal to save greece and we're along way down the road from that aren't we? Sarkoleon's France banks are swimming in PIIGS crap and need the cover of German strength and cleanliness. I say take out Germany now by focusing on the bonds and such so Merkel will stop this wink and handshake stuff with France and concentrate on the needs of her PEOPLE.

the market is only down a little over 1% so that is nothing compared to how bad the situation actually is. remember the talking heads are all still saying "the fundamentals of the US economy are strong". that running gag has been the best comedic line for the past ten years.

what i find funny is that gold is within $25 the price of platinum. If gold goes above platinum do we need to redo all the record sales. I mean going platinum won't be better than going gold anymore.

Yes, well more of the expected - the same. Looks like ECB bond issuance will be the only way to finance this solvency mess. The Germans and German Wanna-bes are rather behind the market on this because over there they don't really feel as though their countries and politics should be trumped by financial markets. This may, to a Yank seem backward, but in fact over-financialization has turned the US into the tail wagging the dog backwater it has become.


The financial transaction tax (which should have been enacted EVERYWHERE post 2008to at least slow down speculation) will raise some funds and somewhat quiet the public (mainly German and German Wanna-be public) outcry over these backdoor bank bailouts which are coming when PIIGS debt is restructured. This tax is a good political move.


Due to the lack of financial brainwashing on the other side of the pond, it is manifestly apparent to all that this PIIGS thing boils down to another banking crisis.


Still feel sure that Greece will have to leave the Euro & readopt the Drachma.

The SIV debt hiding trick they used with the kind assistance of everybody's favorite bankster, can be used as the reason. They willl have to default on the euro debt.


There's no way the Euro will be allowed to disappear. The rest of the world has US $ fatigue.


Does anyone really believe when they created the Euro there was NO IDEA of a member leaving? Right! Fines mean nothing to insolvent countries.
