More Bad News For Euro Banks: SocGen, Intesa And Unicredit Kicked Out Of Stoxx 50 Index

Tyler Durden's picture

Yes, you can't short them. But that doesn't mean you can't sell them. Which is precisely what index funds will be forced to do after the main European index, the Stoxx 50, announced that it will be removing battered SocGen, Intesa and Unicredit from its list of constituents (as well as that anachronism of a cell phone maker Nokia). Let's hope that European HFTs jump in to prop the bid. Oh wait, unlike our farce of a levitation machine, Europe does not have HFT, which is why following every overnight session it is our vacuum tubes' patriotic duty to buy everything up into the close with a millisecond holding pattern, only to dump it to other algos, and ultimately retail and ETF hands. And since every loser has an equal and opposite winner, the companies that will replace the aforementioned sinking ships are Unilever, LVMH, National Grid and Air Liquide.

Luckily I don't hold any foreign stocks. I call my portfolio "the patriot's portfolio" because it consists of only US stocks, with an emphasis on retail. This week I have been rewarded greatly for my maturity and persevierence - while European stocks plummeted, my portfolio has taken a turn for the better. These spoiled brat doomers are destroying this country's moral by rallying against the necessary fiscal and monetary easing, and quite frankly I think its time they grew up.

Are you sure it's not hairy canker?

Maybe Robo has taken on a new persona.

But, despite it all, I'm glad he's back, we need some momo to laugh at while the world ends.

No Mr. Million Dollar Bone-us. No.

We red-pill "doomers" assail your non reality based morale.

Asshat devotees of Keynes and Bernays destroy morals.

Cue Bob Pisani on the BlowHorn tomorrow morning to tell us that the only thing that matters to the tape is how the Euro banks are trading.

Nice can of gas to toss on what will be an econ fire tomorrow, anyway.

I heard him say that and thought    Whuuuuuuu?  The gold series is great, but seriously, everyone HAS to know those banks were trainwrecks, don't they???

Maybe I'm too optimistic?  (Even though I am a confirmed pessimist/realist.)

it's just the 50 but it does point out another difference. in freedumb's land we **ADD** C (and toss the much better HON) to the Dow 30 when it all turns to chit. Apparently some "over there" believe in taking out the trash.

Sweet Jesus.  I just had a flash-back to the days of free markets when this sort of info was important for trading.  Thanks for the memories, Tyler.

Gold's recent sell off for whatever reason (SNARC) isn't saying QE so even if they continue to hike the shit out of margins all this does is put an end to the "physical" versu "paper" game sooner.

Well played TBTF - MSM...well played?

Cheap Jordans just go out there and pitch and not think about Air Jordan Shoes anything else, he said. That makes it a lot easier on me. I dont have to worry about the other circumstances and just Air Jordan go out and focus on every pitch I throw. Rodriguez, who jammed the thumb fielding a ground ball in Minnesota on Aug. 21, aggravated Nike Air Jordan Sunday in Baltimore. He returned to New York on Monday Cheap Jordan Sandals and had a magnetic resonance imaging test that revealed a Jordan Max Fusion sprain. Rodriguez said doctors told him it was slightly higher than a Grade 1 sprain. He said he did not want to rule Air Jordan 13 Air Max Fusion out the possibility of coming back for Thursdays game here, but added that he was told not to touch a Jordan 11 Air Max Fusion bat for another two days. That makes a return for the Yankees final regular-season game in Boston rather unlikely. Jordan 3 Air Max miserable, Rodriguez said of the notion he would not be able to play in this rivalry. Its painful to come here on this is Air Jordan Spizikes a perfect day to play baseball at Fenway Park. This is one Spizikes 2011 of my favorite places to play. Rodriguez, who missed the series here this month, is a career .290 hitter at Fenway Park, with 22 home runs Jordan Space Jams and 69 runs batted in over 104 games. Before Tuesday nights game against the Boston Red Sox, Rodriguez took ground balls Air Jordan Space Jams at third base with a wrap on his thumb, but he did not hit. He said the thumb did not bother him in the field, but Jordan 3.5 Air Max is unable to swing the bat without considerable discomfort. He said when he did start swinging again, hopefully Thursday, Jordan 4 Air Max Fusion would reduce the number of swings in order to lessen the strain and pressure on the thumb.

Non-news. They got kicked out of the SX5P (Europe) not SX5E (Eurozone). SX5E is what trades - so will be the big one - this is just the warmup.
