USDCHF Plunges To Record Low Following Generali CEO Comments Eurozone Faces Risk Of Breakup, Flight To Safety Resumes

Tyler Durden's picture

Yep. Europe again. Following comments from Generali's CEO Giovanni Perissinotto based on a transcript from a conference call earlier that the Eurozone is at risk of breakup (something which everyone knows, but nobody dares to say, especially not anyone whose CDS is trading in lockstep with those of Italy), the USDCHF just plunged to fresh all time lows. And so all the goodwill created by the robotic buying on the NFP headlines is gone.

You forget propaganda that says 24/7 and 365 days a year how great and powerful the "Super Power" is.

Now the "Super Power" will get the "Super Congress"

Too bad all the "Super People" in the "Super Power" are "Super Broke".

Europe is coming apart at the seams and the Euro is still over 140. WTF

Bam_Man's picture

Just wait until Germany announces it is leaving the Euro "temporarily".

At that point the Euro becomes a "PIIGS pen", with a value of 0.75 USD.

Europeans and their emotions are killing this sweet little bounce. God damn reality!

European break-up killing us

Debt ceiling deal killing us

Margin calls and gonzo post-Lehman risk management killing us.

Fulfilled H&S cross still killing us.

Revised GDP/and ISM still killing us.

S&P rumor of downgrading US killing us.

Roubini/Faber/Rosenberg killing us.

So why are we down only .4% and not 4%?

That 1190 area on the SPX will be keenly defended  ( 50% of QEII rally) the  "compound in" long only funds will be in a real mess if that goes.

The SNB is already intervening, but they don´t have a chance to contain this.

Thorlyx's picture

How about printing a shitload of colored paper. C'mon even the Swiss can do that. Besides, it boosts the national production figures. It's all good.

swissaustrian's picture

Just a few days until this will be done. We´ll set up a sovereign wealth fund and tie the chf to the eur...

Just some more political pressure needed.

Luckily, we have Bernanke. Whenever he opens his mouth, gold goes up. Just a matter of days and gold is at 1776 $.

And don't be so harsh on Angela (Angel: Angelus) - imagine Hitler would comment this market ("wawuff! WUFF! WUFF! maRRRRket! STEINERRRR! woff! Zerrrstörrren! woff!" ).

There are problems in Europe? I thought they fixed this in last week's episode.

Cassandra Syndrome's picture

Its the New Neo Keynesian model to replace the New Keynesians, emergency EU Summits every week, to prop up the markets and to create jobs by having these meetings all the time creating a multiplier effect. 

Makes sense I suppose...

I see...sort of the broken window fallacy applied to coffee and bagels.
