For all the knashing of teeth the last few days, looks like Dexia is a non-event.

Hey, at least gold is up, so most of the ZH bloggers should be high-fiving the ES futures ramp.

Speaking of Dexia, on July 7 & 8 this year, S&P and Moody's gave Dexia A1 and P1 ratings, respectively.

See page 11:

While not the top ratings available, just three months later...and they're gone!


Not that we didnt already know but these ratings agencies really do not know what they're doing...or do they???

treauries closed, EU repos not reacting before 7 hours from now, why should there be a gap down in Asia? Dexia is not Lehman re direct effects. The problem has not occured during the weekend but last Tue, decisive EU policy action has lost its credibility before the announcements of crucial meetings this weekend and the structural consequences of Dexia such as credit rating impacts yet unassessable, you will have to wait at least until some time during the day tomorrow for things to unravel.

Besides futures are now completely irrelevant, look at Fridays maniacal market actions, 100 point swings in minutes.

the new world may have gotten the shit end of the biological warfare stick but keep in mind that correlation doesn't always imply causation.

They carried New World diseases back, too.  Syphilis.  It wasn't as slow-acting as it is now.  Back then, you got covered head to toe in pustules and you died within months.  Cuts both ways...

I sometimes forget that many cultures rue the day "dirty europeans" rocked their world. I wasn't trying to be insensitive. Don't worry indigenous peeps, many populations are now outbreeding the white menace, and then it will be party time.

if the ASX200 overshoots it's sell off (following S&P500 sell off) should drag the AUD down.

The market looks confused and nervous. China (fudgy) data due next few hrs, watching money supply.  also wanna see if the commie stat people freak out the market and reveal a really low CPI.  We hope.
