Rumor Fatigue - BRIC Buying Half-Life Under One Minute

Tyler Durden's picture


While 30 minutes ago Brazil's Central Bank policy head Mendes spoke in Brasilia saying that the "Euro is less important in Brazil international reserves", and "Brazil seeks reserve currencies with solid fiscal positions", we are now supposed to believe a rumor cited by Reuters that BRICs are setting up for coordinated buying of European peripheral sovereign debt?

It appears Rumor Fatigue has taken hold as the market rallied 6pts and then sold it all back within the same minute:

Will the AMF be investigating this one?

That rumor was corrected with a rumor that Portugal/Greece will be buying HARPO bonds. We're certain that this will result in the defeat of eastasia as well as jubilant crowds spontaneously celebrating the increased chocolate rations.

Been a lot of rumoring likely via that giant hedge fund called Goldman Sachs to move the market up by a mere 250 Dow points.  My guess would be that GS has been selling into the strength being created because the $ started to rally and their massive carry trade positions started to unwind.  They needed an opportunity to get less vulnerable.

Just a guess.

Meanwhile, the dichotomy between the EU and US markets grows ever wider:

That disparity is crazy, been watching it closely too.  Europe as a whole has better fundamentals than the US.  If Germans do allow Eurobonds and create greater fiscal union than you have something like the US with a much smaller trade deficit and less overall consumer / corporate (ex-financial) debt.  If the weak countries are expelled from the union, the currency is the only one with discipline in the world and Europe is on the way to reckoning with reality while US still stubbornly sits in la-la land.  The true reckoning has to be with US consumption, that is where the greatest imbalances lie.

Sooner or later these hopium wars will end in the realization that the world is insolvent and no amount of excess reserves in any country can prop up the weight of debt around the world so these monetary regimes will fall and crumble.  It would behoove these so-called more 'productive economies' to plan ahead (which I'm sure they are to a certain degree) and not continue to weaken their future position by wasting away their current reserves on untenable situations like the euro or most sovereign debt issues that plague the world economy.

Truer words have never been written.  In fact, I would go a bit further and state that the game is nearly over, and they know it, so all of this smoke and mirrors is to blind us to TPTB buying gold.  We are all locked in steerage discussing Greece while they all scamper aboard the lifeboats.

Nobody gives a shit about the 450 million people; but they give a big shit about the 0.1% whose money is run by these TBTF shills. The lolly of the  be all and the end all of this caper. And its the same story at the US; nobody gives a shit about the 300 million + sheeple, just the 0.1% Oligarchs. So what the jeezes are you sniggering about. Unless you are an Oligarch as well. This will clean out most of Main street on both sides of the pond...DO you guys know how to count...?

There were no soldier deaths in august in Iraq. A radio talk show host was murdered. So that country is now fully governed by the psycopathic sociopathic ruling class. The soldiers will stick around until december. Government probably has to waste most of the dissenters to be on the "trusted" list.

So now the horrific hurdle is set up. Anyone bad enough to take them out is just as dangerous and horrific as they are so might as well stick with original horror show. The patronizing lock is on the gate. Now you run the scam. You can only beat us by being better than us. Then simply attack and destroy and perfect forever. Sick fucking fuckers.
