Each time you have a "revelation" the world ends. It happens all the time. But it is not a historical event. It is personal event. A good one.
I think you are simply projecting meaning onto some numerical "expressions" which is very arbitrary.
66,6% is simply 2/3 of something. S&P, if it really is some kind of entity with a mind of its own, perhaps wants to maintain it's mass or volume or whatever in relation to "something" at this level, because it leaves it enough energy to maintain initiative in a dynamical environment of markets.
As for your birthday - happy birthday to you
My birthday was many months ago...
I was a little scared about the 66666 thing, but I didn't give it much attention...
And so, on 11-11-11, after doing some research about that 666 bottom of the S&P 500 in March 2009, I discovered about the "three days in November" of 2009, after the release of the movie. And realized about the downgrade and the 6.66% fall.
My interpretation now is that the 66666 in my birthday was a warning that I was about to decifer the 666 enigma...
Call me a charlatan, if you want. I'm not revealing my real name, and I'm not asking for money from anyone. I don't want to be famous, and I don't want money.
I just NEED to share this discovery with as many people I can, otherwise I will become crazy.
The yield on Italy's bonds hit a new euro lifetime high in an auction on Monday when the country managed to sell the full amount it wanted to raise.
Italy sold 3 billion euros ($4.08 billion) worth of five-year bonds at a gross yield of 6.2 percent, compared with 5.3 percent in a similar auction in mid-October, according to Reuters data.
Merkel said that it is time for a breakthrough to a new Europe. She said that rescue measures were needed to keep the euro intact. She said the European Union needs to develop new structures -- and that would mean more Europe, not less.
She also said automatic sanctions were needed to punish countries that violate Stability Pact rules.
Credit rating agencies’ freedom of expression should be restricted on “prevention of disorder” grounds, the European Commission will argue on Tuesday as it unveils controversial proposals to suspend sovereign ratings in “exceptional circumstances”.
The reform package marks the most aggressive attempt yet by Brussels to bridle an unpopular industry that some European leaders have blamed for aggravating the sovereign debt crisis with erratic and “subjective” rating decisions. However, even at this late stage, there still remain big divisions within the Commission over how powers to suspend sovereign ratings will be defined – a political disagreement EU commissioners must resolve on Tuesday morning.
Michel Barnier, the commissioner responsible for the proposal, is mounting a last-ditch attempt to increase the clout of regulators so that they can suspend any sovereign rating within the EU – a broad scope that applies to countries such as France and Italy in prescribed circumstances. But Mr Barnier, a former French foreign minister, on Monday faced a backlash from at least five other European Union commissioners – including representatives from the UK and Sweden – who are concerned that such restrictions could backfire and damage fundamental rights.
A draft of the Commission impact assessment, seen by the FT, justifies the curbs on freedom of speech as a legal measure to avoid public disorder. “One could argue that this option restricts, to some extent, the freedom of expression or information . . . of credit rating agencies. However, limitations to this are possible,” the impact assessment argues...
French banks are heavily exposed to troubles elsewhere in the EU, write Nelson Schwartz and Liz Alderman.
First it was Athens. Then Rome. Could Paris be next?
