I will bet that the Euro will be on life transfusion until the US election year is over, because even with if the dollar will come out on top if the EU collapse it will be a time frame of panic in which the US markets will go down the hill if the Euro suddenly collapse.

So I expect the 2012 to be a year of more accumulating debt with monthly bailout loans infusions thanks to our own Federal Reserve and the IMF.

Now this is just me speculating

The euro took a big dump on basically no news.

Me thinks Europe is getting downgraded before the week is out... including Germany. Maybe even tonight.

Yeah im slowly opening his eyes. Hes now a hardcore prepper for it now.
long story but a few large items are personallyGuaranty through the company and if the company goes, so does your personal weath. Just on the Verge. Sad to see someone who use to be so successful lose everything through no fault of there own.


Im thinking all the fireworks are to start in Europe the first week of January, maybe even the 2nd week when people start coming back to work. Now with the ECB cash balances rising, i wonder whats going on

The point about the ECB cash balances rising is an interesting one. Its well document that the ECB lent out multi-billion euro loans to banks at 1% interest, and the banks turned around and parked their money back with the ECB at just 0.25%, taking a small loss on their money rather than risk investing. Now how's that for so called confidence?
Seriously it shows just how perilous the financial situation is in Europe and this is (apparently) why markets and the Euro fell - on learning of this news, that being the ECB's record expanding balance sheets fro this activity.

It's interesting what he says about china.
Over the past few months I've heard a number of sources saying china is quietly in a lot of trouble.

Yields fall as Italy sells 7 bln euros of bonds


Italy sold another round of government bonds Thursday, with yields falling for 2014 and 2022 debt, news reports said. Italy raised a total of around 7 billion euros ($9 billion) of various bonds. The government had planned to raise between 5 billion and 8.5 billion euros. Italy paid a yield of 5.62% to sell new three-year debt, down sharply from 7.89% in an auction last month, Reuters reported, while 10-year bonds were sold at a yield of 6.98%, down from 7.56% in a late November auction.


Still pretty high considering the strong confidence currently.

Italy Sells Long-Dated Bonds To Weak Demand, 10 Year Prices Just Inside Of 7%, Bids To Cover Miss


* EUR 2.54 billion in 6% bonds maturing 2014, less than the target of EUR 3 billion, the yield was 5.62% compared to 7.89% previously, with the Bid To Cover worse at 1.36 compared to 1.50 on November 29.

* EUR 1.18 billion in 4.75% bonds maturing 2021, less than the target EUR 2 billion, the yield was 6.70%, compared to 5.77% previously, and a Bid To Cover just barely higher at 1.60 compared to 1.48 before.

* EUR 803 million in FRNs due 2018, less than the target EUR 1 billion, the yield was 7.42% far higher than the 5.590% from October 28, and a Bid To Cover of 1.97 lower than before.

All in all, when one ignores the purely optical "improvement" in the 10 Year pricing, since 12 bps wider, well north of 7%, this was a very weak auction, with demand missing across all tranches, and confirming once and for all that as we have been saying all along, the LTRO has been an epic failure.

Assessment from the UK Telegraph:

Euro slides after Italian bond auction falls short of target


The euro fell and stock markets remained cautious after Italian borrowing costs slipped from recent record highs in a debt sale but investors still demanded a near "unsustainable" interest rate to hold the ailing eurozone nation's 10-year bonds.



David Schnautz, rate strategist at Commerzbank in Lodon, said auction "underscores that the genuine pressure on Italy is still tremendous."



However, a sale of 10-year bonds saw the yield only fall to 6.98pc from a record of 7.56pc at an end-November sale - a yield above 7pc is the level where other eurozone governments have been forced to seek bailouts.

"Italy may have got the auction away, but it is still at a high rate," said Manoj Ladwa, senior trader at ETX Capital.

Martin Armstrong update.


OUR ultimate risk is that we will lose all our freedoms before there would be hyperinflation. The borders are closing silently. Tax havens are being attacked and every wire coming into the US is being traced to check who owns that account. Government is desperate to cling to power. It is naïve to presume that our economic troubles will cause government to see the light and accept gold as the new money supply. The bankers, who really control government like the financial crack dealers, would never allow it.


www.inflateordie.com...


The attempt to manipulate gold during the Panic of 1869 and force gold higher in price so that the US government when it returned to a gold standard would have to accept the then current market price failed. The government intentionally released a press statement saying they would sell ten times the amount of gold than what they had. The market collapsed despite the false information. Sell the rumor – buy the news. The presumption that government will be forced to give up economic POWER is just absurd.

Unadjusted number : 490 364 jobs lost. Of course ``seasonally adjusted`` by the US government...

Vitchilo thank you so much. You made my year! I can tell my husband I was right and back it up. I never thought to look at the Dept of Labor site. I figured they were keeping the correct figures a secret. The truth is a lot scarier then I realized.
