I feel failure in the air ...
French bonds looks nice too...
Bond vigilantes will penetrate any spreads.
UNICREDIT CEO, IN MEETING WITH ECB, TO ASK FOR MORE ACCESS TO ECB FUNDING FOR ITALIAN BANKS BY WIDENING TYPE OF COLLATERAL USED-SOURCE CLOSE TO BANK.
How much will the ECB give for a flaming bag of dog shit... such as CMBS backed defaulted loans. Hey, if JPMorgan can somehow sell this pile of flaming shit to investors, surely they are great (AAA-rated of course) collateral for the ECB.
Looks more like a W to me...
Bush's fault? :-P
BOE more stimulus
Don’t be stupid, everything is fine. We will shortly return to stable economic growth. Ben Bernanke is the new Messiah!! Moses, Mohammed & Jesus will be consigned to the dustbin of history. All heil our honest, righteous and genius leader, Ben Bernanke…
shortly ? means today :)
Yes Ben is very good isn't he? No idea what all the flak is about and why he and the Fed are taking so much stick. People are under-estimating his hard creative work .....'print'
His Mandate from the US Govt is to back-stop the banking system. Namely be the worst investor on the planet and buy up every turd Blankfein and Dimon plop on the pavement ...not the bag lady, think of Ben as a super pooper scooper
everyone knows that potus is the real messiah - the 21st century pop version of jesus.
ECB spent €1.5bn' on Spanish and Italian debt this morning and is in buying Italian bonds again.
But because EUR up 70 pips from morning lows in last 15 mins futures have covered 50% of their morning losses.
Also on Greece this is funny:
Consortium of Greek bondholders, have agreed to swap their current bonds for new ones worth just 50% of their current value, although the final figure has still to be thrashed out. But in return, they are understood to be demanding that the future interest rate on the new bonds will be around 8% a year.
Merkel just out with latest: all that is needed is some changes to the existing treaties to win back market confidence.
That's the ticket, Angie:)
EURUSD is even getting in on the game after setting a new monthly low in Euro trading. Will be nice to see it go to parity, still short the pair. As well as AUDUSD.
How does the ECB feel that everything it buys goes underwater immediately?
Like Lehmann and his brother :)
C'est la vie. It wouldn't be buying them if yields were decreasing.
I'm sure though that if asked they would report that they were happy with thier purchases as they were bought on the secondary market and therefore priced correctly.
They are idiots who think the rest of the world is more stupid than they are.
They don’t care; it’s not their money, and they will all still get their share from the Eurorocrocy trough funded by the poor old tax payers. C’est la vie (for now).
In other news the perma bulls at DB are revising GDP estimates HIGHER on un-inflation indexed Retail Sales report...wheeeeeeeee!
"Tyler Durdens('?) finest hour(s)." It is my "raison d'etre" to simply read it. We've come a longe way...starting with creating hearings in the US Senate to being the only place actually exposing what was really going on with Fukushima. There's been so much in between (HFT'ers, Prime X, Solyndra and simply "Bruce" and "Banzai"(i love that name!) in general) it's really quite amazing that none of these funadmental issues would even be discussed were it not for "here." And of course we've taken casualities and we will take more, some are lucky to have made it this far, we're with the fight of OWS...but this "Europe" story is the one that is going to have the major material impact on the global "raison de etre" for decades. It will only be "reported" on here.
UBS's new CEO is from unicredit :)
Unicredit is looking for a new CEO from.... Goldman (ECB and Fed plant)
