Breaking News
Italy's debt downgraded by S&P




Standard and Poor's downgraded its unsolicited ratings on Italy by one notch to A/A-1 and kept its outlook on negative, a major surprise that threatens to add to concerns of contagion in the debt-stressed euro zone.

S&P in a release dated Sept. 19 said the cut reflected its view of Italy's weakening economic growth prospects.

"In our opinion, the measures included in and the implementation timeline of Italy's National Reform Plan will likely do little to boost Italy's economic performance, particularly against the backdrop of tightening financial conditions and the government's fiscal austerity program," said S&P.

The move from S&P came as a surprise as the market had thought Moody's was more likely to downgrade Italy first.

Well as I said on the thread, China pulling the plugs on the banks in Europe is only significant NOW, IF the swaps were big. If they were tiny, it's inconsequential.

But it shows that China doesn't believe in Europe. At all.

5 possibilities...

1. The markets have gone full retard .

2. The FED and the ECB have opened unlimited credit lines to the banks.
3. China cutting off the swap lines didn't involve a lot of money.
4. QE3 is going to be massive. And the ECB is going to join.
5. People are high on lots of drugs.

Typical psychological reaction - ignoring reality and pretending everything is normal.

If it is war, then it is all enemy propaganda.

Though, it would be good if China helped Europe get rid of its womanizing PMs

Markets In Risk On Mode Following Greek Non-Default And Denials Of Greek Referendum And Siemens SocGen Bank Run



[...]
Spain announced it raised €4.46 billion in 12-18 month bonds, with a target raise of €3.5-4.5 billion.

12-mo auc avg yld 3.591% vs 3.335%, bid/cover 2.78 vs 2.14
18-mo auc avg yld 3.807% vs 3.592%, bid/cover 2.74 vs 3.23


Greece announced €1.625 billion 3M Bill auction results, in line with prior:

3-mo auc avg yld 4.56% vs 4.50%, bid/cover 2.84 vs 2.95


And this is why everyone is ignoring the far more important and bigger Chinese news overnight... At least for the next few hours as the short covering relief rally fades away.


Hm,so they take the good News and ignore the Bad News...for now anyway

EU official: More banks may need recapitalization

The fed is in meetings, that is pushing the markets up because the "hope" of Bernankes, funny how thing works this days.


The again EU needs more money, I guess it was not enough last week they need more.


Nine banks failed July's stress tests and 16 others only barely passed. Those banks have to submit plans on how the want to raise their capital buffers to the EU's banking regulator by mid-October. They then have several months to try to raise the money on the market or seek aid from their governments.

US stock futures rise ahead of Fed meeting


Stock futures are rising as investors divide their attention between Europe's precarious debt situation and a key Federal Reserve meeting.

Late Monday, ratings agency Standard & Poor's cut Italy's credit rating by one notch, citing the country's growing debt and weak growth outlook. Italy has the second-biggest debt burden among countries that use the euro, after Greece.

The Fed begins a two-day policy meeting Tuesday. Many investors hope the central bank will announce it is taking steps to stimulate the U.S. economy after the meeting ends.


Stimulate? what the heck it was the US greedy pigs the ones that started the global economic downfall with their dirty deals in the mortgages markets.
What a joke.

There's so much ``priced in QE3`` in the markets, if Bernanke doesn't print a boatload of money and announces that he will do so tomorrow, the markets are gonna tank a hell lot.

Well he's dumb enough to do that.


Update :
Well FINALLY...
BNP Freefalling

Well, as expected, the Chinese news finally filtered through to the vacuum tubes. It took them a few hours... But it is finally there. BNP is down 7.3% at last check and tumbling. Comments from the IMF, which is always behind the curve, are not helping.

BNP down 25% since Thursday highs.



Good news of the day! Here it is! JPMorgan lost $431 million on Netflix shares since july 13!

NFLX losers
Poor them!

Global Systemic Risk Near Record Highs Prompts ESRB Warning


We have been pointing to the incessant rise in the risk of the Financial Stability Board's most systemically important entities for weeks now. It appears the European Systemic Risk Board has, according to Dow Jones, issued its first warning to governments, urging them to prepare capital injections for some European banks.


Judging from the Comments,Ben might have started the Printing Presses...and Gold surged almost 30 $ in the last Hour...Insider Information again?
