Milan Bourse Says Will Not Resume Futures Trading On Thursday For FTSE MIB

Tyler Durden's picture

Just in case there was any wonder what the outcome of the refutation of the short selling rumors was, here it comes courtesy of Reuters, which informs us that the Milan Bourse has decided trading will not resume on Thursday for futures on the FTSE MIB. We doubt this is due to concerns of an explosion in buying. If Italy opens close to limit down again tomorrow, and the contagion once again spreads to France, expect an imminent resumption of a short selling ban, only to be refuted yet again 10 minutes before market close, concurrent with a day-long halt in all futures trading. And so on ad inf.

The best tricks are the old tricks. Unless you are desperate. Then the best tricks are the only tricks.

More to my point.  They aren't banning short selling.  They are banning selling at all.  Manipulation medication til the end.

Nope Italy is upset no one beleives they are going to get all Austere suddenly. They denied, cried, and then got mad and took their baseball home.

Do people REALLY need one more reason to "invest" in Au/Ag?

Glad I bailed out of the markets over a year ago!

The lesson of the past two years.

Governments Will Do Anything To Keep The Juggled Balls In The Air (including murder : Gadaffi)

If the markets don't do what is needed, there will be no markets.

If the people don't do what is needed, they will be eliminated.
