Honestly I'm impressed the UK is holding on like it is... they just had some news come about that RBS will be needing a bailout from parliment...

All things concidered... they're holding pretty firm...

As far as austria goes... nope, haven't heard anything, but I'll take a look see if I can't find something

can't find crap on Austria...

I'm thinking perhaps the NYSE will start flat... and not really go anywhere until they hear the particulars of the morgage rescue the administration is supposed to release today...

could be wrong though... I dunno...

Russia & Czech Republic obviously still need watching.

Russia's Micex Stock Index Drops on Ruble, Economy Concern; Sberbank Falls

Baccardax: Eastern Europe Could Dump Gold
www.cnbc.com...

The ratings company issued a stark warning to bond investors exposed to the region's banks. In a nutshell, demographic demands (Europe's population is ageing fast, its birth rate is plunging and its retirement benefits are increasing) have pushed the European project ever-Eastward, bringing Poland, Hungary and the Czech and Slovenia Republics into the fold four years ago, with Bulgaria and Romania following in 2007.

With enlargement has, of course, come economic and monetary expansion; Europe's banks have lent billions to lift the region's prospects, lifting foreign currency debt-to-GDP ratios from an aggregate 30 percent in 2000 to a current 47 percent.

Currency declines, according to Credit Suisse, could take that figure to 65 percent. Put another way: the region’s on the hook for $1 trillion -- a fifth of it due for refinancing this year.

That might be a task too far when emerging Europe is expected to contract by as much as 10 percent and currencies like the Polish Zloty (down 15 percent against the Euro) and the Czech Koruna (down 13 percent) continue to free-fall. Add to that the fact that the US Treasury is set to flog $2 trillion in paper at the same time.

So, what’s left? Gold, that's what. Central and Eastern Europe are sitting atop 730 metric tonnes of bullion, with a current market value of $259 billion. The IMF needs member approval to shift it 400-plus tonnes and Western European banks have cut a deal to limit sales until next year.

They'd have to be tempted: commodity prices are sitting at 6-year lows while Gold's climb continues apace. At $1,000 an ounce, the price spread, and the lure of hard currency, might be too much to resist.

In the year 2013 civilization has all but destroyed itself. After a war that decimated the government and most of the population of the United States (possibly the world) people struggle to survive against starvation and rogue groups of armed men. One such group is called the Holnists. This group is bigger than any other and their leader, General Bethlehem, has delusions of ruling the country. A drifter is captured by the group and forced to join. He escapes at the first chance and happens on a mail jeep with a skeleton in it. The skeleton is wearing a postal uniform and the drifter takes it to keep him warm. He also finds a mailbag and starts conning people with old letters. The hope he sees in the people he delivers to changes his plans and he decides that he must help bring the Holnists down.
