Negative Euro Headlines Are Back Sending EURUSD And Its Derivative, S&P500 To Day's Lows

Tyler Durden's picture





 

As the Dow crosses 13000 and S&P crosses 1400 - the wrong way - the noise from Europe is picking up:

  • *IMF SAYS IMPLEMENTING MEASURES A `MAJOR CHALLENGE' FOR GREECE
  • *IMF: No Request From Spain For IMF Financial Help
  • *SLOVAK PREMIER FICO SEES 5O% CHANCE OF EURO AREA BREAKUP

Bah, what does the Slovak premier know: it is not like he is a member of the Eurozone. Oh wait...

EURUSD has fallen 50pips from its intraday highs; Spain 10Y (+19bps to 525bps) is at 3-week wides.

 

and the US indices look weak...

 

with S&P 500 e-mini futures (ES) testing the week's lows...

I have been shorting MS from time to time. I usually wait for them to get out from under the radar to short them.

This is a test......this is only a test. Should a real emergency have occurred, authorities would be along shortly with official instructions. This is only a test.

Someone keeps jumping into this market to avoid a huge selloff. I know I would want to jump in on a 120pt selloff right before Bernanke disappoints.....yup....

A true story here folks.

I had a Slovak mate many years ago who came here to England for work, got to know him damn well and he was a spot on bloke, but jesus christ could he drink.  I thought I was a good drinker but this fella could put a room full of hard core plonkys to shame.

I have no idea what relevance this has to the story unfolding, but it sparked off a memory of a damn fine man I had the privelige to know.

Maybe you're subconsciously reminiscing about a damn fine economy you used to know?

One where there was nothing better than drinking hard and shootin' the shit with the mates after a hard day's work... ?

Not the economy where everyone pre-postures on the words of a bunch of central bank fucks pulling everyone's plonkers and listening to a bunch of smug shitstains saying you're missing out by not participating and not believing in their rightous plans.

That's my diagnosis - please contact me for payment in pints  ;)

'Bout those shitstains poor fella,

I just happened to be on the guiness last night and well, you know, I had a late night early morning reflex action, if you know what I mean.

I may not be able to get the whites, white, so sorry, the beers are on hold mate.

I think we're seeing some leakage of information out of the Frankfurt debate at the ECB on "how do we construct a bond buying plan."

They can't get internal agreement.  Germany says no.  Finland says no.  The Dutch say no.  Austria says no.

You want to see collapse?  Let's have Draghi resign with a statement that "it cannot be done."

Funny how two stories that say that the euro and gold will go up have been posted on this site just before the euro and gold fell, together, at the exact same time again.
