Sorry about the title. It is not my choice of words. I hope the thread is not ignored because of the sensational title. I could have worded it a bit better... I keep the original title like in Breaking news.....



This is likely to be the biggest finacial story of the month, a story that's bigger than Cyprus, and a story that you're not going to see in American mainstream media - not by a long shot.

Let's take this from the top, for BoomBustBloggers were warned weeks in advanced. On Wednesday, 27 March 2013 I published EU Bank Depositors: Your Mattress Is Starting To Look Awfully Attractive - Bank Risk, Reward & Compensation wherein I explained that the situation of extreme loss faced by Cyprus bank depositors, savers and bondholders will not be a unique story


BoomBust

The ECB has also gagged the Government from releasing any information in relation to the liquidation of the former Anglo Irish bank, IBRC.

“We are dealing with sensitive information that if released would undermine what is in the best interest of the taxpayer.

It was stated after the whole Cyprus savings haircut that it wouldn't be long before other countries that were in trouble financially would most likely use similar actions to buy some more time. Well this is it, and I don't think that this will be the last we hear about situations like this happening.

If this hits the MSM I will look for the stocks and commodities to have a nice pullback as investors begin to panic again. The lesson to be learned in all of this is that your money is only "safe" in your own safe.

I guess the denial that Cyprus was not a template is as usual the opposite of what these folks mean.

I wonder if it has had anything to do with the Gold smack down as I don't think anyone truly knows what that was about outside of pure speculation.

But, HEY don't shut the door until everyone else gets out

....but everyone jumped in on the "houses only ever go up" and houses become the ATM with equity withdrawal. Why do you think the Gov are desperately trying to stop the house crash in the UK by using stupid schemes.
Houses are 10-20% cheaper in the UK for a euro escaper, house price inflation is less than real inflation so people think they are going up when they are in fact not. Lots of money in property in the UK....

They mentioned property tax!!!! No escape.....

The only people who jumped on that bandwagon were the people lucky or unlucky enough to be old enough for the bank to throw quarter of a million on tick at you. No one is getting mortgage these days though, our housing market is screwed. Great for land lords though, rental markets doin great.

But... did this cyprus-like event already happen or is about to happen?

Sorry about my ignorance but I'm not really the most finance-and-economics inclined guy you'll meet

I read an article by Al Martin that suggested that the drop in gold prices was because Cyprus had to sell 13 metric tons of gold to try to get a larger bank bailout from the EU. If that's the case, we could see another drop in gold prices, depending on how much gold Ireland has to sell.

...

I just had a vision of the little guy from the Leprechaun movies torturing EU bankers to get his gold back. Kinda put a smile on my face.
