Guess I'll make a pot of coffee and wait to see how Europe reacts to all this.

Of course, it seems that when the rest of the world tanks, we get a rally - go figure

The futures made a brief comeback there and I was all set to go to bed and then saw all the breaking news on EU Squakbox.

I'm still up ::twirl::

And now, the futures are reacting to the news. Okies, I may scamper off to bed now but, I'm leaving the bloomberg website up and may have to come peek at it through the night.


A new prediction: Hx3 will still be here posting away! Is he man or machiene?

sounds like a plan 10 mins to open...looks like ~-2.5% on open at this point.
I also am amazed at the disconnection in how the markets are reacting...I had thought earlier gold/silver might get a bump on asia tanking, but, it's earley still, plenty of time for a move...I guessed maybe ~+2%...we'll see

HSBC to Raise $17.7 Billion, Cut 6,100 Jobs as Profit Declines
www.bloomberg.com...

March 2 (Bloomberg) -- HSBC Holdings Plc, Europe’s biggest bank, plans to raise 12.5 billion pounds ($17.7 billion) as it cuts 6,100 jobs and closes its HFC and Beneficial consumer lending units in the U.S.

Net income for 2008 fell to $5.73 billion compared with $19.1 billion the previous year, the London-based lender said today in a Regulatory News Service statement. That was lower than the $13.6 billion median estimate of 10 analysts in a Bloomberg News survey. HSBC also cuts its full-year dividend by 29 percent to 64 cents a share.

]HSBC to cut back US Lending


HSBC Holdings PLC plans to curtail its disastrous foray into U.S. consumer lending by pulling back from key businesses, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. HSBC may announce the moves as soon as Monday, when it announces 2008 results that were hurt by a dismal fourth quarter and combined slowdowns in the U.S., Asia and Latin America, the report said. In particular, HSBC is largely throwing in the towel on its 2003 purchase of Household International Inc., a $14 billion deal that saddled it with a U.S. subprime lender which has seen its results worsen amid the housing downturn, the report said. HSBC had already ceased originating new U.S. auto loans, and now people familiar with the bank's plans say it will stop providing personal loans while continuing to offer credit cards, according to the report.

Thank You Sir!!!
@ 4:20 am est DJIA futures -119
star 4 U!

Boy these reporters on tv sound really shaky when they're giving their buy recommendations...hand wringing, stuttering and all...


Now AIG is breaking into 3 units with a bunch of double talk, trade this for that, wipe this out, give us this...I can't make heads or tails of it

Gold 958.90 16.40 1.74%
getting closer to my ~2% gain I guess at


(yes...I'm talkin' to myself...again...
)
