UPDATE 1-Mexico central bank intervenes in forex market




MEXICO CITY, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Mexico's central bank intervened in the foreign exchange market on Friday, offering dollars directly to dealers after the peso hit a record low against the dollar, foreign exchange traders said.

"I'm being told this right now on the other line," said a trader. Two other market players confirmed the intervention.

The peso rallied as the bank offered dollars after it finished its regular dollar auctions at 1 p.m. (1900 GMT).

The peso fell more than 2 percent and traded as low as 14.9983 per dollar MEX01 on Friday, prompting the central bank to sell the maximum $400 million in two auctions under its daily dollar auction policy.

The bank began intervening on Feb. 4, selling dollars directly to banks in its first such direct sale in a decade.

Finance Minister Agustin Carstens said on Feb. 6 that the bank would continue to intervene when necessary to contain the volatility of the peso. (Reporting by Michael O'Boyle, Liz Salazar and Lorena Segura; Writing by Robert Campbell; Editing by James Dalgleish)


Mexico is dealing with inflation issues. With NAFTA and the SPP how long will it be before this starts affecting us? Those dollar will make it here eventually. If they aren't directly.

I wish we made any money from Gold here in Nevada. We have a very bad policy. Nevada produces 82% of the nations gold and takes home none of that money.

Stocks Drop, But Dow Escapes 10-Year Low

Stocks avoided a major selloff Friday but the Dow remained below its November low as worries persisted that the government could step in and nationalize some banks.


Well done, P4T. Stocks got axed and droped, but Dow escaped.

I was thinking of buying gold at 820/ounce

Now it's at $1000. The Dow is worth only about 7 ounces of gold now.

Perhaps the FDIC is reluctant to seize any of the banks that were deemed to big to fail because of the impact it will have on all of the other banks that are carrying the so called "Tarnished Assets" on their books.

The reason, the Book Value is significantly greater than the True Market Value. If the FDIC seizes one of these banks and then auctions off "Tarnished Assets" of that bank it will establish a Market Value for the "Tarnished Assets" held by all of the other banks. When the new Market Value is established through a public auction then the remaining banks will be required to write down the value of their "Tarnished Asset" holdings which will immediately show that they are insolvent because the new value of their assets will be insufficient to secure their liabilities.

GM closing at record lows...
Dodd & Frank arguing about Nationalizing the Banks...
Citi, BofA, Wells Fargo & Prudential getting crunched Friday...

Anyone?

Edit: Someone on another thread posted the "real reason" banks books are locked down is...

"The sum is greater than the parts..."

They sliced & diced those MBS way over 100% of their actual numbers...and are afraid they'll be hit with fraud...sounds right...

Underhanded nationalization? I'd say so:
Gov't reportedly mulls taking larger stake in Citi


Published: 52 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (AP) - Citigroup Inc. is reportedly negotiating with government officials to have the U.S. boost its stake in the troubled bank to as much as 40 percent, The Wall Street Journal said late Sunday, citing people familiar with the situation.

Such a move by Citigroup would result in the New York-based bank ceding far more control to the feds than executives likely desire, and would dilute shareholders' investments. The Journal, which said Citigroup made the proposal to its regulators, noted that sources say executives would prefer to keep the government's stake closer to 25 percent.

But with the company's shares trading at their lowest point in nearly two decades, Citigroup is seeking ways to stem further losses.

On Friday, shares of Citigroup fell 22 percent to close below $2, and Bank of America Corp. shares also sank, as talk of the banks' nationalization spooked investors. Both banks already have received significant help from taxpayers as the government has rushed in to try to save the financial sector. The White House, however, has insisted it's not trying to take over the two ailing financial institutions.


So far they're lying about nationalization. This is really pissing me off.

Japan was getting wrecked, it was a fuse that would have blown up the American markets in a few hours. So they invented a rumor, leaked it to WSJ and someone had their boy Drudge front page it after Japan tanked at the open.

It is an invented rumor. When the Fed takes Citibank its gonna be whole hog.
