Set Your Alarm: Germany's Government Spokesman To Make Statement At 7:30 pm Berlin Time, 1:30 pm Eastern

Tyler Durden's picture

Ok, everyone can go on that Starbucks run: the market will be dead for the next hour when German government spokesman Siebert will make an announcement at 7:30 pm. No need for any UK tabloids to even frontrun the lies this time around. That said, we are concerned that the news won't be spinnable in a favorable fashion.

I'm concerned that the news WILL be spinnable in a favorable fashion.

So which official will commit his/her nation to a far, bar better thing than they have ever done before and commit his/her people to a far better demise to go to, than they have ever known?

Well...all of them of course.  Was that a trick question?

At 1:25pm Eastern they will release a statement that denies the release that they would make a statement at 1:30

This is really urgent. They need an expert. A real Pro. Has anyone the current adress of Baghdad Bob?

World politics at it's most incompetent.  Just a bunch of chimpanzees eating bananas.  An insult to the primate community actually.  The Chimpanzees have a distinct plan.  They are hungry so they eat. The European political sideshow is a mess with no distinct plan.  Confused.  And structually screwed.  No sense of purpose and unity at all.  And now the bond market is starting to feed on them and the banks are plummmeting.  

This whole thing has been worst then a slow motion car crash.  It's actually like watching a guy in a rubber cell smash his head against a wall over and over again.......    Absolute insanity absolutely.

"We have a plan to work on a plan that we will announce with no details at some time in the future."

When I yawn, people hammer me with negative reviews.

Are you using leverage to naked short your own negative reviews?

Wir sind sehr stolz zu sagen, dass Herr Warren Buffett hat der ESFS ein zusaetzlich Summe von EU400 Milliarden gegeben.  Deutschland ... uh .. ich meine, der EU is gerettet!

merkels yielding to not have a solution to EFSF and no progress has been cited, how can he not disappoint? 3 trillion euros? He talked it over with the Bernank for some extra cash?

My prof says Greece will exit.  I argued that GErmany would exit first.  If I'm right, my prof buys me coffee.

Why not on a Thursday? If I was a German any day of the week would do.

Having said that - if he was going to make the "It is with much regret" speach, it would have leaked - at least to the extent that Stocks were a bit more copperish today.

Fips_OnTheSpot's picture

Just because tomorrow is a work-day -- but we would need some HELLUVA party if they announce that. And as Germans we dont just call in sick ;-)

Are you trying to set someone up for a dirty joke or what?

Nothing happens in Europe until forced.

There are many steps that has to happen until Germany feels forced.

France, on the other hand.....

Let's hope they give us fair warning so we can spend / exchange any euros we may have whilst they are still worth something.

MachoMan's picture

Don't worry, you'll have plenty of fair warning before the bottom drops out...  just keep waiting.

Mark123's picture

It will likely just be another don't worry be happy announcement.


Move along people...nothing to see here...stock markets are safe.

Clorox Cowboy's picture

Definitely going to be a non-announcement.  Something like:  Merkozy is getting the band back together, but have decided to only release one detail of the rescue plan each month to make the fun last as long as possible.  Then next month it will be once a quarter.  Rinse and repeat.

Your problem Tylers, is that you guys don't realize how creative the market can be when it comes to making a delicious melt up sandwich out of shit and french bread.
