As commented previously, the reason for today’s 30 point rip in emini futures from the lows hit just 4 hours ago, was a test of the ECB emergency BTFD service, today provided courtesy of Reuters which, just after the European close, gave what is ever more [...]

Stocks, Bond Yields Drop After Rosengren-IBM-Oil Triple-Whammy

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/20/2014 09:41

As futures opened last night, it was all looking so bright as the ‘rebound’ extended and every knife-catching “in it for the long-run” manager was proved ‘right’. Then Eric Rosengren pissed in the punchbowl – explaining QE will end in October “unless somethinh dramatic happens” [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/20/2014 08:40 -0400

Draghi, we have a problem. Just as Coeure ‘promised’ the ECB, according to The FT, began its bond-buying program this morning. However, peripheral sovereign bond-buying front-runners banking on the ECB greater fool to offload to are disappointed as they are go no easy money love. The [...]

Challenge to Keynesians “Prove Rising Prices Provide an Overall Economic Benefit”

globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com / By Mike “Mish” Shedlock / October 19, 2014

When the euro declined vs. the US dollar, the ECB was happy that inflation would inch back up. The fear now is that falling oil prices will [...]

Handelsblatt: “Four German Banks On The Brink”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/17/2014 11:05

Several days ago we were confused why, out of the blue, a €1 billion loan BWIC appeared that was dumping German non-performing loans. After all, the whole point of the European “recovery” fable to date has been to deflect all the attention from the “pristine” German banks, [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 10/17/2014 09:27

ECB Exceeds it Powers At the Threat to Germany

armstrongeconomics.com / by Martin Armstrong / October 15, 2014

The storm brewing in Europe with the European Central Bank (ECB) is its plan to buy bad debt from banks in the version of stimulating the economy. Of course this is indirect and will never save Europe – but it may tear it apart. The ECB [...]

Why Tomorrow It Could Get Even Worse

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/13/2014 19:03

While today’s market dump was certainly dramatic, it was a function of the scant liquidity in the market (as we warned would be the case first thing) and outsized moves following last week’s mauling, not the result of any fundamental (or not so fundamental) news.

Very interesting times we now live in, the financial system is running out of options very quickly and “blowing up the world” seems to be the only final option. I know, this sounds grandiose and dire but let me explain.

This past week we finally saw some [...]

What the Heck just Happened in Global Stock Markets?

wolfstreet.com / by Wolf Richter / October 12, 2014

It was a crummy week for the world’s major stock markets:

One, volatility came roaring back. Forget complacency. People are still rubbing their necks from whiplash.

Draghi The Dictator: “Working With The Germans Is Impossible”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/12/2014 12:44

The war of words between Europe’s unelected monetary-policy dictator Mario Draghi and Germany’s “but it’s us that pays for all this” Bundesbank has been gaining momentum since Jens Weidmann penned his Op-Ed slamming Draghi’s OMT ‘whatever it takes’ as “too close to state financing” in 2012. A [...]
