World's Largest Commodity Hedge Fund And Andrew Hall Taken To Cleaners On Last Week's Energy Plunge (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/worlds-largest-commodity-hedge-fund-and-andrew-hall-taken-cleaners-last-weeks-energy-plunge)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/08/2011 21:45 -0400

And once again we get a reminder why the word "hedge" fund is such a misnomer. The FT reports the Clive Capital, the "world's largest commodity hedge fund" as defined by the FT (although we are more than confident various other and much largest "energy-heavy" funds would be much more appropriate for this moniker) lost $400 million out of its (paltry) $5 billion in total AUM during last week's coordinated energy take down, initiated by the forced margin intervention in precious metals. Clive "is the biggest of several big hedge funds believed to be reeling after the unexpected sell-off hit markets late last week." Clive is not alone: "Others, including Astenbeck Capital, the Phibro-owned fund run by Andrew Hall, are thought to have taken double-digit percentage point losses to their portfolios, according to investors." The FT's take: "The scale of the losses demonstrates that even the savviest investors in commodities were wrongfooted by the correction, one of the sharpest one-day falls on record." Our is slightly different: when a trade has enough momentum, and has been working long enough, even the quote unquote "savviest investors" become a momo chasing herd, with nobody hedging, and a massive drop in prices always likely to be the deathknell for some previously vaunted investor, whose only claim to fame was being lucky enough once to be at the right time and the right place, and to put a huge levered bet that worked out. And praying that he or she can recreate those conditions.

Reuters Special Report On What Caused The "Causeless" Crude Crash; Other Hedge Fund Casualties Identified (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/reuters-special-report-what-caused-causeless-crude-crash-other-hedge-fund-casualties-reporte)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/09/2011 10:31 -0400

A tremendous report by Reuters' Matthew Goldstein, Svea Herbst, Jennifer Ablan, Emma Farge, David Sheppard, Claire Milhench, Zaida Espana, Robert Campbell and Josh Schneyer, identifies that while the shaky macroeconomic conditions and an overbought market were among the key reasons for last week's history crude rout, the match that caused an unseen before plunge in commodities was, you guessed it, "computers." Naturally, this is not unexpected to Zero Hedge readers who have been warned about the massive instability of a market comprised almost entirely of unsupervised algos, since the spring of 2009 (a phenomenon which the CFTC and SEC will not "comprehend" and/or change, until it is too late). Additionally, in addition to the previously identified losses at Clive Capital and Andrew Hall's latest plaything, Reuters also identifies BlueGold, Winton Capital and FTC. Basically, throw out a name that has energy exposure (let's not forget Touradji or Centaurus) and you likely have a winner. Must read.

As gasoline prices passed $4 per gallon in Connecticut, Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Rep. Joseph D. Courtney joined President Obama in denouncing "speculators" and urging investigation of manipulation in the oil market. There are a few problems with this.....
......Any review of market manipulation should start with the biggest manipulator -- the U.S. government itself. With nearly complete secrecy, the Federal Reserve lately has been funneling hundreds of billions of dollars to private financial institutions, purportedly to stabilize markets. Congress and the public have little idea of what actually has been done with this money, nor any idea at all of the private understandings the Fed and Treasury Department have with investment houses like J.P. Morgan Chase that often act as government agents in the markets.......

Revisiting Selfishness
(http://www.thedailybell.com/2234/Tibor-Machan-Revisiting-Selfishness.html)
Monday, May 09, 2011 – by Dr. Tibor Machan
http://images.arbp.ch/Machan.jpg (http://www.thedailybell.com/2234/Tibor-Machan-Revisiting-Selfishness.html)
Dr. Tibor Machan

Because I am always eager to do well for myself – have done this for as long as I can recall, starting with wanting to succeed in school, on the athletic field, in trying to be healthy and fit, and wanting to escape the brutal Soviets when I was only 14 – I always pay attention to people who denigrate selfishness. After all, I and most people I know well or even just a bit seem to me to be like me, are concerned to do well for themselves. None of them routinely wastes resources; none makes pointless sacrifices but tends, instead, to aim for good deals; and even those who are dedicated to helping their fellows pick and choose carefully – the reckless ones aren't receiving much aid, nor the vicious ones, only those who have shown some concern for themselves but have met with obstacles not easy to overcome. In other words, even in being generous and charitable, those who try to do well for themselves tend to receive more than those who are literally unselfish.

So then why are so many who speak up about how we ought to act make a special effort to denigrate self-interested conduct?

One could be cynical and give the answer that of course it is of possible benefit to people to urge others to be generous and charitable and not care for themselves but for others, instead, including those doing the urging. They are, after all, among these others whom they implore that they should look out for. So, then, is it a kind of perverse selfishness that may motivate people who preach unselfishness?

This may answer why the banks got bailed out. Names we know!! (http://goldtent.org/?p=57445)

-> Posted by silverngold @ 10:19 am on May 9, 2011
Any Australians here can relate to this share. I’m going through a stage where I have to re-mortgage my house loan and I found this information which answers a question I have often asked.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who are the Bank’s shareholders?

“Banks are concerned about shareholders not customers.” And it reflects in their numbers.


Who are the people that get your hard earned money in a dividend?

This is important, as, according to the Financial Review “Banks are concerned about shareholders not customers.”

“Why?” you might ask. After all without Customers there would be no bank!

The Financial Review answers: “They (the shareholders) control the behaviour of the bank”. Not the CEO, not the board, but the shareholders. So why is the CEO, who earns multi-millions, so scared of the shareholders? Again the same article said, “Bank investors treat their banks harshly!”

Well how harshly are we, the customers, being treated in return?

Bank Shareholder Listings

Each year the banks publish an Annual Report. In this, towards the end, is a list of the bank’s top twenty shareholders. Our intention was to copy these lists so that we would get an idea of the head-honchos who drive bank profit so relentlessly. These lists have been copied and are available at the links below for you to look at. As customers we feel we can now start to learn a bit about what drives the banks to treat us so harshly when we look at who is on the list.

In the process of doing this, we discovered something pretty unbelievable. In fact, it’s absurd. Banks have shares in other banks. Um Why???? To make matters even worse, we discovered that the Top 4 shareholders for all four banks are exactly the same. For example HSBC is listed as the Number One shareholder for each of the Big Four banks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Four_%28banks%29).

We don’t know about you, but we are a little concerned by this. How can there be competition when they all have the same owners?

Because we know you won’t even be able to think about believing it until you see it, we’ve listed the Top 4 Shareholders for each of the Banks below.

Top 4 ANZ Shareholders


Name of Shareholder Number of Shares % 1 HSBC CUSTODY NOMINEES (AUSTRALIA) LIMITED 446,984,331 17.46 2 J P MORGAN NOMINEES AUSTRALIA LIMITED 371,451,021 14.51 3 NATIONAL NOMINEES LIMITED 343,611,753 13.42 4 CITICORP NOMINEES PTY LIMITED 98,249,488 3.84 Top 4 CBA Shareholders


Name of Shareholder Number of Shares % 1 HSBC Custody Nominees (Australia) Limited 210,455,886 13.59 2 J P Morgan Nominees Australia Limited 154,853,734 10.00 3 National Nominees Limited 136,450,456 8.81 4 Citicorp Nominees Pty Limited 66,664,831 4.30 Top 4 NAB Shareholders


Name of Shareholder Number of shares % 1 HSBC Custody Nominees 359,630,439 16.86 2 J P Morgan Nominees Australia Limited 260,185,567 12.20 3 National Nominees Limited 244,446,877 11.46 4 Citicorp Nominees Pty Limited 97,543,050 4.57 Top 4 WBC Shareholders


Name of Shareholder Number of Fully Paid Ordinary Shares % Held 1 HSBC Custody Nominees (Australia) Limited 444,695,642 14.88 2 JP Morgan Nominees Australia Limited 379,805,564 12.71 3 National Nominees Limited 312,929,618 10.47 4 Citicorp Nominees Pty Limited 143,271,824 4.79 Back to the top (http://www.spankyourbank.com.au/who-are-the-bank-shareholders#TopofPage)

We’re not sure whether to laugh or cry. Well, we’re laughing about the notion of “competition” between the banks.We showed this page to our blogger. Needless to say, she’s infuriated and has decided to write all about it. Here’s the link to her post (http://www.spankyourbank.com.au/blog/?p=143) on this topic.

In addition to all of this, we also thought that it would be important to find out a little bit more about these Top 4 shareholders. Below are links to some information we have sourced about them, predominantly from their own websites or Wikipedia.org (http://wikipedia.org/).

Signs of daily NATO strikes against pro-Gaddafi forces are everywhere in Ajdabiya but there is no change militarily and diplomatically. Much fear remains in the eastern city as well as a deepening sense of frustration.

Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports:

4:43pm

Norway will cut back its involvement in NATO-orchestrated air strikes against Libya next month when its three-month commitment ends, Norwegisan Defence Minister Grete Faremo said Sunday, according to the Reuters (http://ca.news.yahoo.com/norway-set-curb-libya-air-strike-role-144047809.html) news agency.

Norway was one of the first European states to be willing to implement a no-fly zone over the African country per UN resolution 1973 (http://daccess-ods.un.org/TMP/4048449.3970871.html), aimed at protecting Libyan refugees from the country's bloody uprising against leader Muammar Gaddafi. The scandinavian country currently has six F-16 fighter jets flying missions over Libya.

So Much For Pimco Buying Bonds: Duration Weighted Treasury Exposure Hits Whopping -23% Short, Cash Surges To Unprecedented $89 Billion:eek (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/so-much-pimco-buying-bonds-short-duration-weighted-treasury-exposure-hits-whopping-23-cash-s)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/09/2011 18:55 -0400

So much for all the conspiracy theories that Bill Gross was capitulating in his short position against US debt even as he continued to bash US fiscal and monetary policy. According to just released April data for the flagship Pimco $240 billion Total Return Fund (which saw a $4.2 billion increase in AUM in the month), Bill Gross actually added to his short position against US government debt, bringing total market value exposure to 4% of AUM or ($10) billion. More amazing is that on a Duration Weighted Exposure basis, the firm's Treasury short is 23%, read that again, 23%! So much for that change in outlook. Additionally, Gross also sold another $8.3 billion in mortgage securities, bringing the April total to a nominal $57.8 billion. Spring cleaning at casa de Bill continued across all fixed corporate income as well, dropping the firm's exposure to IG by $1.6 billion and to HY by $2.1 billion. The only two securities which saw a token increase was in Non-US developed markets and Emerging Markets, to $14.4 billion and $26.5 billion, respectively. Yet the biggest shocker of all, is that Gross has now brought his cash position to an all time unprecedented high of $89.1 billion! That's right, PIMCO is charging a substantial asset management fee when 37% of all assets are in cash. One would think the mattress would cost far less. Either Gross is expecting a huge collapse in the bond market (so contrary to prevailing though), or this could well be the bet that buries the Allianz subsidiary.

And Here They Go For Round Two: CME Hikes Brent, Crude Margins By 25%, First Of Many Such Moves (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/and-here-they-go-round-two-cme-hikes-brent-crude-margins-25-first-many-such-moves)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/09/2011 17:20 -0400

Some brilliant Chicago-based exchange apparatchik just ask himself this simple question: "If it worked so well with silver, why not do it with crude?" The answer is here: the CME, as we predicted last week, just hiked initial and maintenance margins on Crude and Brent by 25%, as well as FX, and other petrochemicals. And, oh yes, this is prudent risk management, because while the CME kept margins flat when WTI was at $115, the massive spike from $97 to $102 is unbearably destabilizing. At this point one can only stand back and watch as the CME proceeds with hike after hike, in an absolute vacuum from the administration, which certainly had nothing to do with this decision. And really who cares: free capital markets died on March 18, 2009.

Billig-Schuhladen für die Bahnhofstrasse

(bg) Zürich – Die deutsche DeichmannGruppe mietet die leer stehenden Räume an der Bahnhofstrasse 104, wie der TA aus gut informierter Quelle weiss. Dem Unternehmen gehören die Marken Dosenbach, Ochsner Shoes und Ochsner Sport. Ochsner ist bereits in unmittelbarer Nähe mit einer grossen Filiale vertreten. Damit dürfte Dosenbach sein erstes Geschäft an der Bahnhofstrasse eröffnen. Bis Anfang Jahr geschäfteten dort das Schuhgeschäft Pasito sowie das Café Balthazar. Pasito-Geschäftsführer Werner Aerni sagte damals, dass er gerne länger geblieben wäre, doch er habe die dreimal höheren Mietzinse nicht bezahlen können :gomad Im Gegensatz zu Pasito hätte das Café Balthazar noch zwei Jahre länger bleiben können, doch der Pächter löste den Mietvertrag vorzeitig auf.

(http://www.nzz.ch/nachrichten/politik/international/der_klerus_demontiert_ahmadinejad_1.10527256.html)Irans Präsident Ahmadinejad hat am Sonntag zum zweiten Mal in dieser Woche den Revolutionsführer Khamenei seiner Loyalität versichert. Zuvor war er des Ungehorsams bezichtigt worden.

Jürg Bischoff, Beirut

Der iranische Präsident Ahmadinejad hat an der Regierungssitzung vom Sonntag erklärt, dass seine Regierung die Herrschaft des obersten Rechtsgelehrten, also von Revolutionsführer Ali Khamenei, weiterhin verteidigen werde. Nach einer heftigen Kampagne in den iranischen Medien gegen den Präsidenten wegen Ungehorsam gegenüber Khamenei scheint sich Ahmadinejad nun unterworfen zu haben. Der Präsident hatte den Zorn des herrschenden Klerus auf sich gezogen, weil er sich mit einem elftägigen «Streik» einer Anordnung Khameneis widersetzt hatte.

Exorzist und Heilsbringer

Das Kräftemessen hatte mit der Weigerung Khameneis begonnen, die Entlassung des Geheimdienstministers Heidar Moslehi durch Ahmadinejad zu akzeptieren. Während elf Tagen liess sich Ahmadinejad nicht mehr in der Öffentlichkeit blicken und nahm an Regierungssitzungen nicht mehr teil. In den konservativen Medien häuften sich Angriffe auf den Präsidenten und dessen Stabschef, Esfandiar Rahim Mashai......

The United Nations refugee agency has appealed to European countries to step up efforts to rescue people fleeing Libya in overloaded and unseaworthy boats.
"Any boat that is leaving Libya should be considered, at first glance, as a boat in need of assistance," Melissa Fleming, a spokeswoman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said in Geneva on Tuesday.

9:41am
NATO warplanes launched a new round of airstrikes in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, witnesses said.
They told Al Jazeera the attacks targeted several sites, including Muammar Gaddafi's compound.
Monica Villamizar reports.

9:19am
Trabulsia, a resident of Tripoli, spoke to Al Jazeera about NATO's airstrike on the capital early on Tuesday:
It started off at the [Libyan state] TV station.. After that, about 2 and a half hours ago there was six big hits, two were at the compound where Colonel Gaddafi stays and the other four were at an intelligence building in Zawiyyah Street. First it was a bombard from the air from the NATO airplanes and the others were rockets where you can hear them very very loudly. After you hear the rocket you hear a huge explosion and even some of the civillians reported the reflection of those bombardments and the sounds were very very heavy and there was smoke reported after every strike.

7:37am
NATO has been bombing pro-Gaddafi forces on an almost daily basis but they've been unable to stop the shelling of rebel-held centres in east and west Libya. Neither side appears to be making any headway.

One Trading Loss Day In Q1 Between Goldman, JPMorgan And Bank Of America Combined (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/one-trading-loss-day-q1-between-goldman-jpmorgan-and-bank-america-combined)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/10/2011 08:42 -0400

Zero Sum trading (in which the banks make money and taxpayers lose it) continues: following previous reports of trading perfection at both D-grade trading "powerhouse" Bank of Countrywide Lynch, and FRBNY-lite JP Morgan, Goldman craps the bad by being the only big bank so far to post a trading loss day in Q1 (even if it was for $0-25 million). This is unacceptable. As a result SLP latencies will be cut from 0 nanoseconds to -10, as Goldman will proceed to a Tachyon based trading infrastructure. In beta tests, such "frontrunning to the future" trading has already posted solid results: in addition to the humiliating trading day loss, GS had 32 days with profits of ">$100 million." And it still failed to impress... Now that HFT "girl around the block" Citi is no longer there for the taking by anyone with a growing liquidity rebate itch, this number will plunge.

On The Dislocation Between The EUR And PIIGS Insolvency Risk (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/dislocation-between-eur-and-piigs-insolvency-risk)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/10/2011 09:36 -0400

SocGen provides a very informative chart on the dramatic dislocation between the EURUSD and PIIGS risk levels, as demonstrated by Greek CDS prices. Whereas in the past the two correlated very strongly, since early 2011, the pair has diverged dramatically, leading many to speculate that just like in the case of Japan, the G-7 did another coordinate intervention to push the EUR higher in 2011 at the expense of the USD and other currencies. Is it time for a "correlated" snapback? SocGen muses: "After reaching a 17-month historical high of 1.4940 last Wednesday, the EUR/USD fell towards 1.4250. The risk of a further drop cannot be excluded short term given today’s climate, even though the 1.4250 support zone appears solid (50-day moving average) and breaking through this level would open the door to a rate of 1.4000."

Wer Foxconn wegen dieser Arbeitsbedingungen ernsthaft boykottieren möchte, der darf sich KEIN IT-Produkt mehr kaufen: keine Spielkonsole, keinen Computer, kein Tablet, kein Handy - und das von keinem Hersteller!



Ja, eigentlich schon! Ich möchte Apple nicht in Schutz nehmen, aber wenn man andere Computer und Elektronikgeräte kauft, hat man bestimmt nicht weniger "Blut an den Händen"! Und Foxconn ist mit Sicherheit auch nicht die einzige Firma dieser Art...

This one is just too good to pass by: the latest critic of US monetary, and budget policy, is none other than... Iran. From PressTV: "Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad strongly criticizes US economic policies, saying that the paper currency created by the American government is taking a heavy toll on the global economy." In an address to the fourth UN Conference on the Least Developed Countries in Istanbul, Turkey, on Monday, Ahmadinejad said that the cash injected into the global economy in the form valueless US dollars amount to over USD 32 trillion, IRNA reported. “This is while the US budget deficit for the 2011 fiscal year is expected to reach a figure above USD 1.6 trillion,” he added. Who would have thought The Onion reality of our centrally planned times would get to a point where Iran speaks more truth than our own politicians...

Weekly Insider Selling To Buying Ratio: 565x (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/weekly-insider-selling-buying-ratio-565x)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/10/2011 12:49 -0400

It has been a while since we refreshed the relentless insider selling rush. So it was good to see there were no surprises in the latest Bloomberg reported S&P 500 insider selling and buying. In the week ended May 6, there was $1.2 million worth of purchases, primarily in PBCT and NDAQ (some insider seems to think there is a possible upside catalyst here, ahem NYSE-deal), with a total of 10 insider purchases in the week. This was offset with a meager 165 insider sales, totalling $650 million, for a selling-to-buying ratio of 565x. The biggest selling occurred in GOOG, Praxair, Waters Corp, Campbell and Equity Residential. And while there are those who claim it is perfectly normal for insiders to cash out promptly without regard for the message sent to other shareholders, even Barrons' noticed the massive spike in selling in recent weeks, noting that any selling to buying ratio over 20 is bearish based on its limited universe of stocks. So, what about 565?

Vorwürfe gegen Ikea wegen «gestaffelten Entlassungen»

Dienstag, 10. Mai 2011, 17:59 Uhr
Das schwedische Möbelhaus Ikea macht Milliardengewinne. Gleichzeitig besteht der Verdacht, dass gestaffelt Personen vor ihrer Pensionierung entlassen werden. Dies, um nicht mit einer Massenentlassung publik zu werden. Das Vorgehen ist legal.

......Der Arbeitsrechtler Thomas Geiser sagt: «Bei einer Massenentlassung haben Firmen gewisse Probleme, weil sie ein Verfahren einhalten müssen. Die Entlassungen werden publik. Es ist dann nicht sehr angenehm, wenn ein Unternehmen gleichzeitig gute Gewinne macht.» Ikea beschäftigt weltweit 127‘000 Mitarbeiter. Der Gründer Ingvar Kamprad ist einer der reichsten Männer der Welt.


Herr Kamprad ein 84jähriger alter stinkereicher (sicher auch mit Hilfe seiner Angestellten) :kotzGeizkragen der auf Kumpel macht, sich duzt mit den Mitarbeitern, sich und seine Ikea als sozial vorgibt - er stellt in erster Linie ältere Menschen die noch einige wenige Jahre bis zur Pensionierung haben auf die Strasse, kaum einer findet in diesem Alter noch Arbeit :mad wieder einmal fragt man sich was so etwas in einer Gesellschaft zu suchen hat :bad

With One Trading Hour Left, NYSE Volume Is 50% Of Average (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/one-trading-hour-left-nyse-volume-50-average)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/10/2011 15:02 -0400

One quick look is enough to understand what is going on with "market participation." Now that not even Johnny 5 will come out and play, as there are no more rebates to be collected in Citi shares, NYSE volume is now at 2.5 billion shares, just barely above 50% of the average, with one hour left in trading: in other words the perfect time for the Fed-Citadel JV to ramp everything higher using nothing but ES and SPY. Once again, central planning wins. The problem, however, will be when the selling resumes, as there will be no marginal buying, especially with no more shorts left in the market and looking to cover.

In Fukushima leben seit nunmehr fast zwei Monaten die Bewohner in Sorge um ihre Gesundheit und vor allem um die ihrer Kinder. «Es gibt hier keine Mutter, die nicht Angst um ihre Kinder hat», sagt Frau Mori, Mutter von zwei Kindern. «Seit dem 15. März lassen wir unsere Kinder nicht mehr draussen spielen, sie tun mir wirklich leid.»
Kürzlich ist eine Abordnung von Eltern zum Schulamt marschiert und hat dort einen Protestbrief übergeben. Im siebten Stockwerk des Rathauses versammelten sich 50 Mütter und Väter. Ein Beamter nahm den Brief mit einer Verbeugung entgegen und versicherte, er werde sich bemühen. «Wir wollen, dass die Kinder in einer sicheren Umgebung sind», sagt Frau Mori. «Wir können nicht weg hier, weil wir unsere Arbeit hier haben, aber es muss gewährleistet sein, dass die Kinder sicher sind.».....

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts - Self-Consuming Capitalism (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/05/sp-500-and-ndx-futures-daily-charts_10.html)
“And the British political economist Fred Hirsch generalized the point: once a social system, such as capitalism, convinces everyone that it can dispense with morality and public spirit, the universal pursuit of self-interest being all that is needed for satisfactory performance, the system will undermine its own viability, which is in fact premised on civic behaviour and on the respect of certain moral norms to a far greater extent than capitalism’s official ideology avows.”

Die Anhänger des libyschen Despoten zeigen sich verwirrt, und erste Verschiebungen im Machtgefüge zeichnen sich ab.....

.....Stammesführer erhalten mehr Einfluss

Auch die Stammesführer haben seit dem Anschlag auf die Ghadhafi-Residenz eine prominentere Rolle erhalten. Letzte Woche sei gemäss «Guardian» eine Konferenz abgehalten worden, bei der Mitglieder aus rund 850 Stämmen zusammenkamen. Resultat der Zusammenkunft in der libyschen Hauptstadt Tripolis: Die Stammesführer sollen mehr Einfluss in nationalen Fragen erhalten.

Die anhaltende Absenz von Muammar al-Ghadhafi scheint viele Libyer zu einem Umdenken zu veranlassen. «Libyen steht vor einem Wechsel – jeder weiss das», sagt ein Anhänger des Regimes. Premierminister Mahmudi Baghdadi versichert jedoch, dass Ghadhafis Herrschaft nicht zu Ende ist: «Aktuell trauert er noch um seinen Sohn, aber er wird bald zurückkehren.»

Ein anderer libyscher Offizieller vermutet, dass Ghadhafi von seinen Sicherheitsleuten angewiesen wurde, die Öffentlichkeit zu meiden. Zumal der Nato-Anschlag auf seine Residenz vom 30. April als Anschlag gegen den Machthaber selbst gewertet werden kann.

And just as Citigroup predicted, US imports surge even as US exports jump to a record $172.7 billion. But the story is once again in the GDP reducing imports which jump by a whopping $220.8 billion, a $10.4 billion jump M/M. The total deficit of $48.2 billion is the highest since the June 2010 spike which hit $49.9 billion. From the release: "Exports increased to $172.7 billion in March from $165.0 billion in February. Goods were $124.9 billion in March, up from $117.8 billion in February, and services were $47.7 billion in March, up from $47.2 billion in February. Imports increased to $220.8 billion in March from $210.4 billion in February. Goods were $187.0 billion in March, up from $176.9 billion in February, and services were $33.8 billion in March, up from $33.5 billion in February. For goods, the deficit was $62.1 billion in March, up from $59.1 billion in February. For services, the surplus was $13.9 billion, up from $13.7 billion in February." Ah, financial innovation being exported as per usual. Look for another round of Q1 GDP downgrades as this number takes out a few basis points in growth. As we know from China that April exports to the US jumped even more, this import surge will likely carry over into Q2 and result in more GDP cuts.

China To "Investigate" Wreckage Of Top Secret Stealth Chopper Used In bin Laden Raid (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/china-investigate-wreckage-top-secret-stealth-chopper-used-bin-laden-raid)

It was only a matter of time before the combination of a suddenly alienated Pakistan and a top secret stealth helicopter crashed deep in its territory, would raise the specter of China, and specifically its military complex hinting it would be delighted to peek under the dress of said crashed chopper to fortify its expanding stealth program. ABC reports: "Pakistani officials said today they're interested in studying the remains of the U.S.'s secret stealth-modified helicopter abandoned during the Navy SEAL raid of Osama bin Laden's compound, and suggested the Chinese are as well. The U.S. has already asked the Pakistanis for the helicopter wreckage back, but one Pakistani official told ABC News the Chinese were also "very interested" in seeing the remains. Another official said, "We might let them [the Chinese] take a look." Gee, following two weeks of demonization did anyone possibly consider that Pakistan would now scramble to reallign itself with China? Surely not the Clinton stepford wife (or is that husband).

Ron Paul Subcommittee Hearing On The Relationship Between The Federal Reserve And Government Debt (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/ron-paul-subcommittee-hearing-relationship-between-federal-reserve-and-government-debt)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/11/2011 09:54 -0400
A hearing that is sure to spark a lot of controversy and debate will be held today at 10 am EDT, by the Domestic Monetary Policy Subcommittee, chaired by presidential candidate Ron Paul. As noted, "The hearing will explore the fundamental role that U.S. government debt plays in the monetary system; the use of Treasury debt by the Federal Reserve in conducting monetary policy; and the troubling reliance of Congress on the Fed to print money to facilitate deficit spending." Alas, there will be no Fed members testifying at the hearing, instead we will hear from Dr. Richard Ebeling, Professor of Economics, Northwood University, Bert Ely, Ely & Company, Inc., and Dr. Matthew J. Slaughter, Associate Dean, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College.

Kolumne Der Mittelstand bröckelt - auch bei uns

http://www.cash.ch/services/img/news/120/4662_Vontobel%5FWerner%5FKolumne.gif 11.05.11, 16:24
Werner Vontobel - Mit der Umverteilung des Geldes von der produzierenden Wirtschaft in den Finanzsektor gibt es vor allem einen Verlierer: Den Mittelstand. mehr » (http://www.cash.ch/news/topnews/der_mittelstand_broeckelt_auch_bei_uns-1034034-771)

Die Zahlen haben uns in den vergangenen Tagen zu denken gegeben:

- Die Fondsbranche "vernichtet", so die "Financial Times", jedes Jahr weltweit 1300 Milliarden Dollar. Das sind rund 2 Prozent des weltweiten BIP, die von den Anlegern zu den Fondsverwaltern fliessen ohne - so die Financial Times - irgendeinen Mehrwert zu generieren.

- Ivan Glasenberg, der Chef des Zuger Rohstoffhändlers Glencore, wird durch den Börsengang zum 9,6-fachen Dollarmilliardär. Vier weitere Glencore-Partner werden mit je 2,7 bis 3,8 Milliarden Dollar vergoldet.

- Gemäss dem neuesten Verteilungsbericht der OECD sind die Einkommen in 17 von 22 untersuchten OECD-Ländern heute ungleicher verteilt als 1985. In Deutschland etwa ist zwar das BIP pro Kopf seit 1985 um 43 Prozent gestiegen. Die Einkommen des reichsten Zehntels der Haushalte haben real um 45 Prozent zugenommen, dass ärmste Zehntel jedoch hat jedoch 3 Prozent Einkommen eingebüsst. Seit etwa 2000 sinken die Deutschland die realen Einkommen nicht nur der Unterschicht, sondern auch des Mittelstandes.

Diese Umverteilung von unten nach oben ist auch eine Umverteilung von der produzierenden Wirtschaft in den Finanzsektor. Die Fondsverwalter, Hedgefonds-Manager und Rohstoffhändler sitzen an den Hebeln der Macht - und nützen das aus. Die Einkommen der wenigen Bankenkader entfernen sich immer mehr von denen der grossen Masse der Handwerker, Staatsangestellten oder Industriearbeiter. Das widerspiegelt sich auch in der jüngsten Einkommensentwicklung der Finanzmetropole Zürich.

Im Kanton Zürich entfielen nach den neuesten Zahlen der Eidgenössischen Finanzverwaltung 2007 rund 8 Prozent aller steuerbaren Einkommen auf das reichste halbe Prozent der Bevölkerung, das reichste Zehntel kassierte rund 33 Prozent. Das sind Verhältnisse wie in den USA, und die Tendenz ist stark steigend. Betrachtet man nämlich rund die zehn Jahre zwischen 1997 und 2007, so zeigt sich, dass nicht weniger als 32 Prozent aller Einkommenszuwächse dieser Periode auf das reichste Prozent der Einwohner entfiel. genau gleichviel wie auf die "ärmsten" 90 Prozent. Pro Kopf gerechnet war deren Einkommenszuwachs um den Faktor 90 geringer. Das bedeutet aber auch, dass die "Mittelschicht" jetzt unter dem reichsten Prozent anfängt und unmittelbar unter dem obersten Zehntel schon wieder aufhört.

Das zeigt sich übrigens auch bei der Entwicklung der versteuerbaren Vermögen seit 1995. Auch hier hat nur das reichste Prozent richtig zulegen können, die nächsten 9 Prozent wurden ein wenig reicher und die "ärmsten" 90 Prozent haben gar im Schnitt 20 Prozent ihres Realvermögens eingebüsst. Diese Umverteilung auf der Vermögensseite bedeutet auch, dass die unteren 90 Prozent dem reichsten Zehntel (der Bodenbesitzer) auch mehr Miete bezahlen müssen.

Der Mittelstand böckelt weltweit - und neuerdings auch bei uns in der Schweiz.

...ist doch idiotisch - das Fundament einer Gesellschaft ist doch ein gesunder Mittelstand :cool also warum muss man ausgerechnet den dem FinanzZirkus zum Frass vorwerfen - diese Heinis können wohl kaum einen Nagel in die Wand schlagen, geschweige denn einen Acker umgraben oder sonst was :dumm :kopf

Jeremy Grantham Goes Bearish: "Now Is The Time To Fight The Fed" And "Stocks Trading 40% Above Fair Value Are Badly Overpriced" (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/jeremy-grantham-goes-bearish-now-time-fight-fed-and-stocks-trading-40-above-fair-value-are-b)

Just released from Jeremy Grantham, who has gone, for all intents and purposes, "balls to wall" bearish. "I do not feel the same degree of confidence that I did, which was considerable, that the Fed could carry all before it until October 1 of this year. A third round of quantitative easing would very probably keep the speculative game going. But without a QE3, there seem to be too many unexpected (indeed unexpectable) special factors weighing against risk-taking in these overpriced times. I had recommended taking a little more risk than was justified by value alone in honor of Year 3, QE2, and the Fed in general. Risk now should be more reflective of an investment world that has stocks selling at 40% over fair value (about 920 on the S&P 500) and fixed income, manipulated by the Fed, also badly overpriced. Although the taking of some “extra” risk by riding the Fed’s coattails has been profitable for six months, I admit to being a bit disappointed: I really felt the market had the Fed’s wind in its sails and would move up deep into the 1400 to 1600 range by October 1, where it would be, once again, over a 2-sigma 1-in-44-year event, or, officially, a bubble. (At least in a world where GMO is the official.) At such a level, I was ready to be a real hero and absolutely batten down the hatches, become extremely conservative, and be prepared to tough out any further market advance (which, with my record, would be highly likely!). The market may still get to, say, 1500 before October, but I doubt it, especially without a QE3, although the chance of going up a little more by October 1 is probably still better than even. And whether it will reach 1500 or not, the environment has simply become too risky to justify prudent investors hanging around, hoping to get lucky. So now is not the time to float along with the Fed, but to fight it. Investors should take a hard-nosed value approach, which at GMO means having substantial cash reserves around a base of high quality blue chips and emerging market equities, both of which have semi-respectable real imputed returns of over 4% real on our 7-year forecast. The GMO position has also taken a few more percentage points of equity risk off the table."

Rajaratnam Guilty On All 14 Counts of Insider Trading - Faces 19+ Years In Prison (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/05/rajaratnam-guilty-on-all-14-counts-of.html)

"The tapes show he didn't believe the rules applied to him. Cheating became part of his business model." "He" is a microcosm of a financial system in which the currency of fraud drives out honest price discovery and displaces productive activity, and large institutions game the markets on a daily basis with near impunity, while the public underwrites their steady gains and occasional but spectacular losses.

Sentencing will be on July 29.

Hedge fund founder convicted in inside-trade case
May 11, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) — A former Wall Street titan was convicted Wednesday of making a fortune by coaxing a crew of corporate tipsters to give him an illegal edge on blockbuster trades in technology and other stocks — what prosecutors called the largest insider trading case ever involving hedge funds.

Raj Rajaratnam was convicted of five conspiracy counts and nine securities fraud charges at the closely watched trial in federal court in Manhattan. The jury had deliberated since April 25, and at one point was forced to start over again when one juror dropped out due to illness.

Prosecutors had alleged the 53-year-old Rajaratnam made profits and avoided losses totaling more than $60 million from illegal tips. His Galleon Group funds, they said, became a multibillion-dollar success at the expense of ordinary stock investors who didn't have advance notice of the earnings of public companies and of mergers and acquisitions.

Rajaratnam will remain free on bail, though now with electronic monitoring, at least until his July 29 sentencing.

The verdict came after seven weeks of testimony showcasing wiretaps of Rajaratnam wheeling and dealing behind the scenes with corrupt executives and consultants. Some of the people on the other end of the line pleaded guilty and agreed to take the witness stand against the Sri Lanka-born defendant.

Authorities said the 45 tapes used in the case represented the most extensive use to date of wiretaps — common in organized crimes and drug cases — in a white-collar case.

The defense had fought hard in pretrial hearings to keep the avalanche of audio evidence out of the trial by arguing the FBI obtained it with a faulty warrant. Once a judge allowed them in, prosecutors put the recordings to maximum use by repeatedly playing them for jurors.

"You heard the defendant commit his crimes time and time again in his own words," Assistant U.S. Attorney Reed Brodsky said in closing arguments.

"The tapes show he didn't believe the rules applied to him," the prosecutor added. "Cheating became part of his business model."

In one July 29, 2008, call, Rajaratnam could be heard grilling former Goldman Sachs board member Rajat Gupta...."

Justice, this time, is served. Raj found guilty on all charges. Next up: up to 20 years in federal pound me in the ass penitentiary (20 years on each of 9 counts, and 5 years on the remaining 5 so a total of 205 years possible). But that's ok, Raj Raj certainly frontran that verdict and is most likely prepared as necessary.

Fed To Monetize Just $93 Billion In Next 30 Days: Lowest Monthly Total In All Of QE2 (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/fed-monetize-just-93-billion-next-30-days-lowest-monthly-total-all-qe2)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/11/2011 14:14 -0400
The fed has just released its new POMO schedule for the period from May 12 to June 9. In essence, every single day between now and Thursday June 9 will see a POMO, except for holidays and June 2. The total amount to be monetized is just $93 billion consisting of $80 billion in Treasurys (no surprise) and just $13 billion in MBS, confirming that as we have expected, the QE Lite component of monetization is coming to a rapid end as few if any prepay their mortgages with the Fed any longer. The MBS component is down from $17 billion as of the last schedule, and from $22 billion two months ago. The total monthly amount of $93 billion is the lowest of any monthly QE2 schedule. And following the end of this schedule, there is just another 20 days before QE2 ends on June 30, meaning from now until the end of the ramp, there is at best about $160 billion in incremental capital courtesy of Brian Sack and Printocchio. Furthermore, as of the end of this POMO schedule, the Fed will have monetized just $711 billion. Throw in another $60 billion total for the remaining period through June 30, and the Fed will be woefully short of its upside range of monetizing up to $900 billion in USTs and Agencies.

They weren't murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it.

Thanks to an extraordinary investigative effort by a Senate subcommittee that unilaterally decided to take up the burden the criminal justice system has repeatedly refused to shoulder, we now know exactly what Goldman Sachs executives like Lloyd Blankfein and Daniel Sparks lied about. We know exactly how they and other top Goldman executives, including David Viniar and Thomas Montag, defrauded their clients. America has been waiting for a case to bring against Wall Street. Here it is, and the evidence has been gift-wrapped and left at the doorstep of federal prosecutors, evidence that doesn't leave much doubt: Goldman Sachs should stand trial.....

.......This isn't just a matter of a few seedy guys stealing a few bucks.

"The People Vs. Goldman Sachs" - Taibbi's Magnum Opus (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/people-vs-goldman-sachs-taibbis-magnum-opus)

Matt Taibbi does the seemingly impossible: translates the 650-page Levin report "Wall Street and the Financial Crisis: Anatomy of a Financial Collapse" in simple English, and lays out the criminal case against one Goldman Sachs for everyone to read, comprehend, and scratch their heads how nobody has gone to jail yet: "They weren't murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it. When it came time for Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein to testify, the banker hedged and stammered like a brain-addled boxer who couldn't quite follow the questions. When Levin asked how Blankfein felt about the fact that Goldman collected $13 billion from U.S. taxpayers through the AIG bailout, the CEO deflected over and over, insisting that Goldman would somehow have made that money anyway through its private insurance policies on AIG. When Levin pressed Blankfein, pointing out that he hadn't answered the question, Blankfein simply peered at Levin like he didn't understand....This isn't just a matter of a few seedy guys stealing a few bucks. This is America: Corporate stealing is practically the national pastime, and Goldman Sachs is far from the only company to get away with doing it. But the prominence of this bank and the high-profile nature of its confrontation with a powerful Senate committee makes this a political story as well. If the Justice Department fails to give the American people a chance to judge this case — if Goldman skates without so much as a trial — it will confirm once and for all the embarrassing truth: that the law in America is subjective, and crime is defined not by what you did, but by who you are.

This won't sit too well with the GCLU. We are, in fact hearing, that there is already a protest organized to protest police brutality, which will culminate with more cops beating the austerty out of more protesters, and so forth at an exponential pace.

Guest Post: Some Thoughts On The Recent Commodity Correction (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/guest-post-some-thoughts-recent-commodity-correction)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/11/2011 18:58 -0400

The recent correction in the commodities markets may be providing Bernake, Geithner and their easy money acolytes with a sense of relief given the relentless run up in prices of raw materials since the announcement of QE back in 2008, but they should not sleep tight just yet. As anyone in the markets will tell you, when any underlying has a price move so vertical in its trajectory it’s bound to face a correction as the smart money, having gotten in for fundamental reasons much earlier along the trend line now wait for the panic buyers or the Johnny-come-lately’s to give the rally that last unsustainable spike to unload their longs and leave the suckers holding $40.00 silver in their purses. So one must step back and take a long view. Although it would appear that those of us who warn that inflation is not just a threat but very much a fact of life now were knee-jerk pontificators jumping on the commodities rally trend for political (read: Fed/Obama bashing) reasons, the analysis is quite sound. Most important, it is methodical not emotional as price surges tend to make investors and analysts from time to time. Here are some facts: even with the inevitable correction in commodities, as of this writing crude oil is 35% more expensive than it was a year ago…advancing with ups and downs along the way from as low as $17.50/bbl in November of 2001 to its current level of over $100/bbl or around a 19% annual appreciation in a decade since the Fed started giving away dollars. Silver 93% Wheat 84% Cotton 100% Coffee 55% Cattle 10% etc etc. Gold is up 22% for the year. More revealing, it is up an astonishing 450% since 2001. In that same decade the USD index against all currencies shed 40% of its value.

Yeah, comic relief!

They are laughing as they slaughter the sheep.... The FED "exit strategy" is to cause a panic exit out of everything that makes sense in a corrupt and broken finance system . Push the money flows into the Zombie recovery story, low inflation moderate growth. Get out of the real and into the fantasy.

Crude Plunges, But Someone Tell The Gas Stations And Refiners: Average Price Of Regular Rises By 2.2 Cents Overnight (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/crude-plunges-someone-tell-gas-stations-and-refiners-average-price-regular-rises-22-cents-ov)

Once again someone forgot to tell gas station operators that the CME is doing all it can to generate a feedback loop which kills commodity prices and general price stability (price plunges, vol surges, leading to margin hikes, leading to more plunges, leading to even more vol and even more margin hikes, etc). After gas prices rose by about a cent yesterday, the rise according to AAA continues, with average gas prices on the verge of a post 2008 high, even as crude prices have taken a nearly $20 hit in the past two weeks. Yesterday the average regular price was $3.984, up from $3.962 yesterday, and unchanged from a week ago.

From a note: The rating on Goldman Sachs stock is being lowered to Sell from Neutral. The price target is being cut to $120 per share from $163 per share. It now appears that the pressure on the Justice Department to bring a criminal lawsuit against Goldman is building to a high pitch. The new Matt Taibbi article in Rolling Stone Magazine is another all-out attack on the company. However, this time the attack is backed by a 650 page Senate report signed by both a Democrat and a Republican.

Every regulator in the universe will be present at Senate Banking Committee hearing discussing Dodd-Frank (Do-nk) Monitoring Systemic Risk and Promoting Financial Stability. Which means there will be nobody to greenlight a margin hike for at least 2-3 hours, as supposedly even Blackberries are not allowed. Which means crude may even lift a few offers before today's take down brings it to $80 by EOD courtesy of Obama's E*trade account.

Irish Bombshell: Government Raids PRIVATE Pensions To Pay For Spending (http://www.prisonplanet.com/irish-bombshell-government-raids-private-pensions-to-pay-for-spending.html)

May 11, 2011

The Irish government plans to institute a tax on private pensions to drive jobs growth, according to its jobs program strategy, delivered today (http://www.finance.gov.ie/viewdoc.asp?DocID=6828).

Without the ability sell debt due to soaring interest rates, and with severe spending rules in place due to its EU-IMF bailout, Ireland has few ways of spending to stimulate the economy. Today’s jobs program includes specific tax increases, including the tax on pensions, aimed at keeping government jobs spending from adding to the national debt.

The tax on private pensions will be 0.6%, and last for four years, according to the report (http://www.finance.gov.ie/viewdoc.asp?DocID=6828)......

Libya Live Blog (http://blogs.aljazeera.net/live/africa/libya-live-blog-0)


12:14pm
Libyan rebels, bouyed by their capture of Misurata airport, geared Thursday for an assault on the town of Zlitan that would take them another step closer to the capital Tripoli.

Zliten is a town in the Misrata District of Libya. It is located on the southern coast of the Mediterranean Sea west of the Gulf of Sidra. The name is given to both the town and the whole area and is situated 160km east of the capital, Tripoli.

The airport at Misrata, Libya's third-largest city fell to the rebels on Wednesday after long and intense fighting with troops loyal to Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi, an AFP correspondent said.

Guest Post: Why Growth Is Dead (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/guest-post-why-growth-dead)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/12/2011 14:29 -0400

The end of the second round of quantitative easing (QE II) is going to be a complete disaster for the paper markets -- specifically commodities, stocks, and then finally bonds, in that order, with losses of 20% to 50% by the end of October. The only thing that will arrest the plunge will be QE III, although we should remain alert to the likelihood that it will be named something else in an attempt to obscure what it really is. Perhaps it will be known as the "Muni Asset Trust Term Liquidity Facility" or the "American Prime Purchase Program," but whatever it is called, it will involve hundreds of billions of thin-air dollars being printed and dumped into the financial system.

Long Bond Flops on Poor Auction results (http://traderdannorcini.blogspot.com/2011/05/long-bond-flops-on-poor-auction-results.html)

Reports are that the $16 billion, 30 year bond auction, generated poor demand. That should not come as much of a surprise after the big rally has dropped yields down to levels that no one in their right mind would want to lock up capital at for 30 years.

Bonds dropped nearly a full point on the auction news but are once again finding buying at a critical technical juncture. No surprise there also in this heavily rigged market.

So your probably going to smirk a bit here, but what do you think of the call folks like Turk or Russell are making about a "a huge rebound" or "silver to make new high in a matter of weeks"?
I enjoy reading both of those guys, but if that was to happen the 200MA probably won't get tested.
Guess it still boils down to confidence in currencies still?
Thanks

(interesting handle by the way) I make it a point of not making predictions. As a trader I have found that extremely expensive over the years. What I try to do is to interpret what the market price action is saying and make trading decisions based off of that. It has served me well over the years.

If silver goes on to do what some are saying and makes new highs within a matter of weeks, then that is fine with me. If it does not, that also is fine. Long term we all believe it is going to do just that. For trading purposes however I would want to see price action confirming a new leg higher. Right now, the market is still range bound so any predictions are just that, predictions. If they work out, the guys who made them will look like heroes; if they do not, they will look like zeroes. Personally I do not see the point. Traders do not have that luxury. Hell, I have been predicting the bond market to break lower for years and look at where that has gotten me for my troubles!

SP 500 and NDX Futures Daily Charts - SP Coiling For A Move (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/05/sp-500-and-ndx-futures-daily-charts-sp.html)

Today's big drop turned out to be a bear trap deluxe.

But even with the big recovery, nothing is resolved, and the stock indices are coiling for a bigger move. Which direction remains to be seen, but watch for more head fakes.

Goldman Sachs caught a big downgrade today from Dick Bove, and that helped to dampen the enthusiasm for the big cap financials. Dick cites the litigation against Goldman that has the weight of a 600+ page Congressional Report behind it.

I would still look for a pre-emptive settlement, fine and wristslap from the SEC after the commensurate campaign contributions.

Alan Blinder Fires First Shot Across QE3 Bow: Says We Need More Stimulus To Boost Employment (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/alan-blinder-fires-first-shot-across-qe3-bow-says-we-need-more-stimulus-boost-employment)

http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/images/Blinder_0.jpg

A little under a year ago Moody's Mark Zandi and Princeton economist and former Fed vice chairman Alan Blinder penned a paper titled "How we Ended the Great Recession" which did nothing but extoll the virtues of spending trillions in both fiscal and monetary stimuli and preventing U3 from hitting 16% (of course how one proves a counterfactual is irrelevant: just remember - if the Fed disclosed its top secret bailout plans the world would end. Same thing here - accept it - after all the guy is a professor at Princeton). In a nutshell Blinder is nothing but Paul Krugman on steroids: a man who believes that there is nothing worse in this world than establishing fiscal (and monetary) discipline now. Well, in an interview with Tom Keene earlier, Blinder fired the first shot across the QE3 bow, telling his Bloomberg host that the US needs "somewhat more" :rolleyes fiscal stimulus once again in order to boost employment (hold on: didn't we end the Great Recession, and certainly the normal one in the summer of 2009 according to the NBER?). How this would be accomplished in the current climate is not explained. Instead what Blinder says makes one wonder just who is on the tenure committee at Princeton - when asked how we bring the deficit in without austerity, the Princetonian responds: "Unfortunately I think it is very subtle for most political processes especially for the political process in the US. What we should be doing is somewhat more fiscal expansion but at the same time legislating into law fiscal consolidation for the future. Starting 2 years from now, 3 years from now, 18 months from now. But not now." Of course never now: why bite the bullet now when it can be kicked to some other administration in the indefinite future? Especially when tenure money and/or Wall Street bribes are at stake...

Zitat von emiliolojo
Aber und das ist der springende Punkt in Spanien kaeme keiner auf die Ideen die Arbeitende, verarmte Bevoelkerung auszunehmen, umgekehrt man hilft wie man nur kann mit 400 Euro programmen fuer Leute die schon 2 Jahre in Arbeitslosigkeit sind. In Deutschland ist jeder mit 25 000 Euro verschuldet, und ihr koennt sicher sein das sie bei jeden einzelnen Eingetrieben werden. Deswegen sind ja auch Wirtschaftnachrichten hier so relevant. In spanien kuemmert jeder sich um seien eigene Nase, und das hat ueberhaupt nix mit glauben zu tun, sondern mit dem freiheitgedanken den es seit 25 Jahren dort gibt. Ihr koennt weiter lache , aber jeder von euch ware froh, dort zu leben.

Ich lebe und arbeite in Spanien und das seit über 20 Jahren. Was Sie da von sich geben ist kompletter Humbug!
Spanien ist abgesehen von seinen positiven Seiten, die sicher weder im politischen, noch im wirtschaftlichen zu finden sind, ein einziger korrupter stinkender Sumpf!
Der spanische Nationalsport und integrierter Bestandteil der hiesigen Mentalität ist Neid und Missgunst!
Ja, wie Sie schon richtig schreiben (so ziemlich das einzig wahre in Ihrem Post) die "VERAMTE ARBEITENDE BEVÖLKERUNG"..
sofern es überhaupt noch eine solche arbeitende Bevölkerung gibt bei 5 Mio offiziellen Arbeitslosen und zusätzlich über 1 Mio arbeitslosen "Autónomos" (ehemalige Selbstständige), die in keiner ALOsenstatistik auftauchen, weil sie nicht in die Alosenversicherung einbezahlen (können)! Ach so, stimmt, ich habe die Schwarzarbeit vergessen, da gibt es noch ein paar mies bezahlte Jobs!
Das kam natürlich alles so, weil die Spanier ach so solidarisch und menschenfreundlich sind...
Und nicht zu vergessen, die spanischen Politiker sind ja nun auch wirklich kompetent und so gar nicht bestechlich und einzig und allein um das Wohl ihrer Bürger besorgt...udn verschaffen Ihnen Jobs in den Ayuntamientos (sofern es Verwandte sind) und über ERES schöne, satte vorzeitige Pensionen (auch sofern es Verwandte oder gute Freunde sind), dabei spielt es keine Rolle, ob besagte Person jemals in der Firma gearbeitet hat, die diese ERE mit den vollkommen unbestechlichen Gewerkschaften COO und UGT aushandelt.

Sie haben wohl auch nicht mitgekriegt, dass für mehr als eine Mio Alos die 400 im Feb/ März ausgelaufen sind und diejenigen, die die 400 € jetzt -vielleicht- bekommen, sind gezwungen, vollkommen hirnrissige "Fortbildungskurse" zu besuchen, wo sie in der Regel dumm rumsitzen und darauf warten dass Abend wird, aber es kommt noch besser, viele der in solche hirnlosen Kurse gesteckte Arbeitslosen müssen, um sich an so einem Kurs beteiligen zu können enorme Fahrtzeiten und vor allem Kosten in Kauf nehmen, für letzteres und Verpflegung unter tags geht dann ein guter Teil wenn nicht alles dieser "ach so sozialen" Finanzhilfe wieder drauf.
Die abgehaltenen Kurse sind so deppert und total am Markt vorbei, dass die Eingliederung von Alos dieser Massnahmen bei knapp über 0% liegt.
Dieses Land ist VOLL AM ARSCH!

For anyone who is sitting by the terminal bored by the meltdown of the EURUSD, redirect your attention to RMBS please where the stock has crashed, either up or down, and has been halted not once, not twice, not three times... but five times in a row, an all time world record, and a confirmation that the morons at the SEC have taken a farce and converted it into a tragedy.

Goldman Fires The Second Shot Across The QE3 Bow: "Successful Fiscal Consolidation Needs Monetary Policy Help" (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/goldman-fires-second-shot-across-qe3-bow-successful-fiscal-consolidation-needs-monetary-poli)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/13/2011 21:02 -0400
http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/images/GS1_1_1.jpg

Yesterday, when we presented the Bloomberg interview of Princeton economist and former Fed vice chairman Alan Blinder, we speculated that his statement that "more easing is necessary" was the first shot across the QE3 bow. Today, Goldman's Sven Jari Stehn has fired the second one in a paper just released titled: "Fiscal Adjustment without Fed Easing: A Tall Order" in which he basically takes our conclusion from the Blinder interview to the next level. As Blinder said previously, in order to improve the once again deteriorating labor picture, more fiscal stimulus would be necessary. That, however, is impossible, especially in a Congress where everyone is now promising $4 trillion of deficit cuts over the next few years. The only difference is how this cutting will be achieved: republicans want spending cuts, while democrats are demanding tax hikes for the richest. While neither approach will work in the US without the shock of a bond-crash induced austerity, Goldman conducts an thought experiment in which it evaluates the effectiveness of a tax-based and a spending-based fiscal consolidation. While finding that on average spending based deficit reduction is more effective, it only truly works in parallel with assistance from monetary policy: be it an interest rate decrease (impossible due to ZIRP) or further Large Scale Asset Purchase (QE) program. In other words, the only thing that can prevent an economic contraction in the next 2 years of semi-austerity, will be more monetary easing.

Tokyo Electric Power Co. concealed data showing spikes in radiation levels at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant in March, one day before a hydrogen explosion injured seven workers.

There are quite a few people around the world who look upon this institution as yet another artifice for utilizing a pot of public money to clean up the financial clusterfucks left behind by the Banksta globalists. On terms tantamount to...you guessed it, rich country/poor country double standards and nothing less than cross border financial rape.

Rape is a serious offense, both in the criminal act itself, but also when perpetrated in the figurative sense against the people of a country.

So is it so surprising that the leader of this institution has the history which the previously hushed MSM today reveals?

I for one am not surprised at all.

However, the accused should always be accorded the benefit of the doubt.

It is the IMF everyone should be doubting at this time. Is it not?

There's one thing almost as bad as being lectured on human rights violations by Hillary, being lectured by the IMF on fiscal responsibility.

And isn't this as good a time as any to be bringing it up?

Fukushima Update: A Very Bad Situation

Well, it now turns out that much of my worst fears and about Fukushima have been confirmed with the news that TEPCO has finally admitted that reactor #1 has experienced a meltdown event that may have breached the primary containment vessel. Further, truly alarming levels of radiation are now being reported in and around Tokyo.

The prospects for containing the situation at reactor #1 are now much dimmer than previously admitted. A melted core is far more difficult to cool because the geometry of the slag heap at the bottom is not nearly as favorable as long thin tubes around which water can be relatively easily circulated.

The Quadruple Dip: Housing Starts, Permits Drop, Miss Expectations; Houses Under Construction At New Record Low

http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/pictures/picture-5.jpg
Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/17/2011 08:44 -0400


Since the triple dip in housing was recently circumvented courtesy of QE2, and was "transitory" in theory today's subpar housing starts and permits data is the beginning of the quadruple dip. And subpar it was: starts came at 523K on expectations of 569K, down from revised 585K previously. Permits were also ugly, missing expectations by a comparable account, printing at 551K, with consensus of 590K(and the previous revised this time lower from 594K to 574K). In starts, annualized single-family units dropped from 415k to 394k, with declines in Northeast and South, and increases in the Midwest and West. The actual, non-annualized number of starts was 46.8k, with 36.2k in single family units. Completions increased modestly from 532k to 554k. And the most interesting number was the number of houses under construction, which hit a fresh all time low on an annual, seasonally adjusted basis, or 418k. At this point it is probably passe to bring up the Cramer clip calling the housing bottom back in 2008 (http://www.cnbc.com/id/26406036/Cramer_Calls_the_Housing_Bottom).

There are signs that two further reactors at Japan's troubled Fukushima plant may have gone into meltdown. Similar problems were earlier confirmed at the number one reactor. Its operators are suspected of failing to properly cool them after the earthquake. RT gets some insight on this from Professor Christopher Busby, who's from the European Committee on Radiation Risks.

When we first speculated (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/deluge-latent-rape-accusations-against-dsk-imminent)that many women would step up and claim they were being abused by DSK a few days back, we had no idea just how right we would be. Yet even we had no idea about the moral caliber of the women doing the "stepping up." Well, The Telegraph has just released the bombshell. "Dominique Strauss-Kahn hired prostitutes from the "Manhattan Madam" who infamously also served Eliot Spitzer, the disgraced former Governor of New York, she claimed on Wednesday night. Kristin Davis said she provided young women for the IMF chief in 2006, as he ran for the French Socialists' presidential nomination, and that one complained about his "aggressive" behaviour. "He was a client of my agency," she told The Daily Telegraph. "When men abuse women I'm no longer going to protect their identities". As for DSK's preference: ""He wanted an 'All-American girl', with a fresh face, from the mid-West," she said. "A girl in January 2006 complained he was rough and angry, and said she didn't want to see him again"."And the hits just keep on coming...

...

President Bill Clinton survived his sexual escapades, because he was a servant to the system, not a threat. But Strauss-Kahn, like former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, was a threat to the system, and, like Eliot Spitzer, Strass-Kahn has been deleted from the power ranks.


Strauss-Kahn was the first IMF director in my lifetime, if memory serves, who disavowed the traditional IMF policy of imposing on the poor and ordinary people the cost of bailing out Wall Street and the Western banks. Strauss-Kahn said that regulation had to be reimposed on the greed-driven, fraud-prone financial sector, which, unregulated, destroyed the lives of ordinary people. Strauss-Kahn listened to Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz, one of a handful of economists who has a social conscience.

Perhaps the most dangerous black mark in Strauss-Kahn’s book is that he was far ahead of America’s French puppet, President Sarkozy, in the upcoming French elections. Strauss-Kahn simply had to be eliminated.

Fukushima Reactor 1 Drywell Reading Hits All Time High 204 Sieverts/Hour (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/fukushima-reactor-1-drywell-reading-hits-all-time-high-204-sievertshour)

Remember Fukushima, the worst nuclear catastrophe in the last 20 or so years which soon will surpass Chernobyl in total radioactive emissions into the environment? Well, the radiation in the now officially melted down Reactor 1 has just hit the highest ever reading since the crisis began, or 204 sieverts/hour, recorded in the drywell (http://atmc.jp/plant/rad/?n=1). Not Micro. Not Milli. Sieverts. It appears the "excuse" that the counters are broken isn't being used this time, although we are confident that the "spurious reading" allegations will fly.

Super Typhoon Songda Projected To Pass Over Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/super-typhoon-songda-projected-pass-over-fukushima-nuclear-power-plant)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/26/2011 16:50 -0400



http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/images/songda_1.gif

So far the only good news to accompany the Fukushima catastrophe has been that for all the fallout, the radiation has been mostly contained due to Northwesterly winds which have been blowing any radioactivity mostly out and into the Pacific (coupled with relatively little rainfall), as well as the dispersion of irradiated cooling water which promptly enters the Pacific after which it is never heard of or seen again (there is at least a several year period before 3 eyed tuna fish feature prominently in restaurants across the country). This may be changing soon now that Super Typhoon Songda, which according to Weather Underground will form shortly as a Category 5 storm with 156+ mph winds, will take a northeasterly direction and 2 days later will pass right above Fukushima. The good news: by the time it passes over Fukushima it will be merely a Tropical storm. The bad news: by the time it passes over Fukushima it will be a Tropical storm. As the latest dispersion projection from ZAMG shows, over the next two days the I-131 plume will be covering all of the mainland. Although judging by how prominent this whole topic is in the MSM lately, it seems that conventional wisdom now agrees with Ann Coulter that radioactivity is actually quite good for you.

Adam Curtis - All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace - Ep 1/3 - Love and Power (23/5/11) (1/5)


xX5jImWRREc


This series of films investigates how people have been colonised by the machines they have built.

...

Episode One - Love and Power

In this episode Curtis tracks the effects of Ayn Rand's ideas on American financial markets, particularly via the influence on Alan Greenspan.
Greenspan joined The Collective in New York which discusses Rand's books, such as Atlas shrugged.

Rand's ideas came to heavily infiltrated California, particularly Silicon Valley, and the computer utopian belief (Californian Ideology) that computer networks could measure, control and self-stabilise societies, without hierarchical political control, became widespread.

Rand entered into a disastrous affair with a married person in the collective, with the approval of their spouses.

Greenspan persuaded the newly elected Bill Clinton in 1992 to let the markets grow, and cut taxes, and to let the markets stabilise themselves with computer technology.

Although the Asian miracle had lead to long-term growth in South Korea and other countries Joseph Stiglitz began warning that the withdraw of money from the Eastern economies could cause devastation.

Curtis shows that the economic crisis that befell the Eastern countries such as Indonesia and South Korea was a direct result of Rand's ideas leading to the transfer of control foreign financial investment from politics to banking institutions leading the housing bubbles to burst, causing large financial losses in the East. However, after each country agreed to IMF bailout loans, foreign investors immediately withdrew their money, triggering massive economic disasters.

To avoid a repeat, China decided to control America's economy via similar techniques. The belief in America was that computers could stabilise the lending of money and that this would permit lending beyond what was actually sustainable, leading ultimately to the 2008 collapse due to a similar housing bubble.

Two Distractions With One DSK

http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/pictures/picture-5.jpg
Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 05/29/2011 17:10 -0400


Who needs birds and stones when you have an insolvent fiat-based world and a IMF head fond of single (and/or) double-dipping. If anyone is still confused about the ritual sacrifice of the head of the world's bailout organization (if only on paper), here is Bill Buckler explaining how the immaculate timing of DSK's being dragged out of a plane and made into a full blown media farce achieved two very substantial targets: "First, it removes the “international” aspect of the moves the EU is making to damp down the ongoing Greek (and others) debt crisis. That turns the “sovereign debt crisis” into a strictly European problem and makes sure the headlines keep coming. Second, the stoush of who the next IMF head will be is now predicted to last until (at least) June 30. This takes the spotlight off the winding down of the Fed’s QE2, which is scheduled to end on - that’s right - June 30." David Copperfield would be so proud...

From William Buckler's latest edition of The Privateer (http://www.the-privateer.com/):
Osama Bin Laden was simply “taken out” by US armed forces. That’s the official line anyway. IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn did not suffer so terminal a fate. He was simply stung, hauled off to jail and removed from his post. As with the Bin Laden episode, the timing could not have been improved upon. Strauss-Kahn was removed just as he was on his way to a meeting with European Union (EU) and Euro zone officials to “deal with” the latest flare up of the Greek debt drama. Presto, the Greek debt drama duly worsened, commodity prices fell some more (for a few days), the US Dollar rebounded and the Treasury’s debt limit was hit without a tremor.

As to Mr Strass-Kahn’s “indiscretion”, the entire thing is peurile in the extreme. In what has been called the “honey trap”, it had little to do with removing him as a potential rival to President Sarkosy of France in the next French elections. The whole idea was to put the IMF in disarray. This served and serves two purposes. First, it removes the “international” aspect of the moves the EU is making to damp down the ongoing Greek (and others) debt crisis. That turns the “sovereign debt crisis” into a strictly European problem and makes sure the headlines keep coming. Second, the stoush of who the next IMF head will be is now predicted to last until (at least) June 30. This takes the spotlight off the winding down of the Fed’s QE2, which is scheduled to end on - that’s right - June 30.

The IMF is usually portrayed in the mainstream media as a “Washington-based” international financial organisation. It is. There is only one nation which has enough voting power within the IMF to torpedo ANY major decision it makes all by itself. That nation is the US. Substantial IMF policy actions call for an 85 percent “approval” vote amongst the member nations. The US voting “quota” is 17 percent.

The only substantial IMF change would be a change in these voting quotas. The US quota has not changed. When the “emerging nations” won an increased vote, they won it from Europe, not the US.

Any questions?

Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street



ed2FWNWwE3I

Quants are the math wizards and computer programmers in the engine room of our global financial system who designed the financial products that almost crashed Wall st. The credit crunch has shown how the global financial system has become increasingly dependent on mathematical models trying to quantify human (economic) behaviour. Now the quants are at the heart of yet another technological revolution in finance: trading at the speed of light.

What are the risks of treating the economy and its markets as a complex machine? Will we be able to keep control of this model-based financial system, or have we created a monster?

A story about greed, fear and randomness from the insides of Wall Street.

Mark Mobius Echoes Carl Icahn: "There Is Definitely Going To Be Another Financial Crisis" (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/mark-mobius-echoes-carl-icahn-there-definitely-going-be-another-financial-crisis)

http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/images/May%2030%2011%20PL%20Mark%20Mobius048_sm_0.jpg

In an almost verbatim repeat of Carl Icahn's words of caution (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/carl-icahn-confesses-system-not-working-properly-warns-another-major-problem-coming)which we noted yesterday, Templeton's legendary chairman Mark Mobius said that "another financial crisis is inevitable because the causes of the previous one haven’t been resolved" during a luncheon (menu included herb crusted chicken breast with cheese and tomato sauce, mashed potato and green vegetables, seasonal salad) at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan (http://www.fccj.or.jp/node/6617)in Tokyo. Bloomberg reports: "There is definitely going to be another financial crisis around the corner because we haven’t solved any of the things that caused the previous crisis,” Mobius said at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan in Tokyo today in response to a question about price swings. “Are the derivatives regulated? No. Are you still getting growth in derivatives? Yes." Unlike Icahn, Mobius stopped short of calling for a return to Glass-Stegall and a repeal of the abominable Gramm-Leach-Bliley which unleashed the era of zero margin derivatives and financial system neutron bombs. On the other hand, it is nice of Messrs Icahn and Mobius to speak up now, two years after the ongoing systemic instability transferred $3.5 trillion in capital from current and future taxpayer generations to the present financial elite. We do, however, forgive them because in their better late than never contrition, they join the likes of Zero Hedge who since January of 2009 have warned, over and over, that nothing in the structure of capital markets has changed, and that the market could any day open not only bidless, but broken beyond even Brian Sack-ian band aid repair.

And so the thunderous herd of highly overpaid and always wildly inaccurate Wall Street lemmings better known as "economists" starts moving. :bertyYesterday it was that paragon of the 0.000 batting average Joe LaVorgna who cut his NFP forecast from 300,000 to 225,000 (a number we expect will be cut to about 155,000 today, or indicative that little Joey was off by about 100% as usual), and today Morgan Stanley has already fired the reactionary salvo, trimming its NFP forecast for this Friday's number from 175,000, accompanied by Credit Suisse which cuts from 185,000 to 120,000. And these lemmings are paid 7 digit salaries why again? So far the most resilient is Goldman's Jan Hatzius, who just threw up all over the ADP number, but has so far refused to cut his NFP prediction of 150,000. We give him at most 48 hours before he does following today's upcoming abysmal CPI number.

ANGELA AND THE BLACK SWAN

William Banzai Yeats

A SUDDEN blip: the monetary union teetering still

Above the staggering Frau, her thighs caressed

By the outliers, her beloved Vaterland caught to pay the bill,

He holds her helpless wallet upon his breast.

How can those terrified political fingers push

The feathered PIIGs glory from her loosening thighs?

And how can body, laid in that black rush,

But feel the deranged fiscal heart beating where moral hazard lies?

A shudder in the voters engenders there

The broken wall, the burning EURO roof and tower

And unified currency dead.

Being so caught up,

So mastered by the brute blood of the speculators air,

Did she put on this flawed knowledge under his power

Before the indifferent beak could let her drop?

Land around Fukushima now radioactive dead zone; resembles target struck by atomic bomb


Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/032568_Fukushima_dead_zone.html#ixzz1Od2CcyvE


(NaturalNews) It is nothing short of astonishing that the nuclear catastrophe we've all been told was "no big deal" has now escalated into the worst nuclear disaster in the history of human civilization. It's so bad now that soil samples taken from outside the 12-mile exclusion zone (the zone considered safe enough by the Japanese government for schoolchildren to attend school there) are higher than the 1.48 million becquerels a square meter limit that triggered evacuations outside Chernobyl (http://www.naturalnews.com/Chernobyl.html) in 1986.

In other words, the radiation (http://www.naturalnews.com/radiation.html) level of the soil 12 miles from Fukushima (http://www.naturalnews.com/Fukushima.html) is now higher than the levels considered too dangerous to live in near Chernobyl. This is all coming out in a new research report authored by Tomio Kawata, a fellow at the Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (http://www.naturalnews.com/Japan.html). That same report also reveals that radiation from Fukushima has spread over 230 square miles.

What we're facing here, folks, is a Fukushima dead zone (http://www.naturalnews.com/dead_zone.html) where life will never return to its pre-Fukushima norms.

At a financial conference today, Dimon told Fed chief Ben Bernanke there’s no longer any reason to crack down on Wall Street. “Most of the bad actors are gone,” he said. “[O]ff-balance-sheet businesses are virtually obliterated, … money market funds are far more transparent” and “most very exotic derivatives are gone.”

Republicans Are Pushing For A "Brief" Default As China Warns US Is "Playing With Fire"


Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/08/2011 07:30 -0400

Yesterday Reuters reported that a troubling, yet potentially inevitable development may be imminent: the default of the US, granted, a short-lived one (though we are not sure just how the world's "reserve" currency will be backed by a national that is technically insolvent). Luckily for the US, everyone else (except China) is just as bankrupt. Yet if there is one thing pushing Lehman into competitive bankruptcy just so that Goldman would have a monopoly in the US fixed income sales and trading market, it is that any such action will have massive downstream consequences, and in the pyramid of "unpredictable downstream effects", the insolvency of the US is at the very top. And just to make it clear, now that a default is becoming a palpable option, China announced (http://in.reuters.com/article/2011/06/08/idINIndia-57573120110608?feedType=RSS&feedName=businessNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+reuters%2FINbusinessNews+%28News+%2F+IN+%2F+Business+News%29)that the United States is playing with fire if it opts to briefly default on its debt, which could undermine the dollar, Li Daokui, an adviser to China's central bank said on Wednesday. Yet the statement could very well backfire after Li, speaking on the sidelines of a forum, said China needs to dissuade the United States from defaulting on its debt, but he believed China may hang on to its investment in U.S. Treasuries in any case. This is precisely the case made by Stanley Druckenmiller (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/druckenmiller-calls-out-treasury-ponzi-scheme-its-not-free-market-its-not-clean-market-ident): in fact, should there be a technical default, US bonds will become a true safe haven investment as America will for the first time take a step to indicate that it believes the relentless abuse of its fiscal situation is coming to an end.

Hillary Clinton Seeks To Run World Bank

We are surprised that the "recidivist rapist" post-DSK PR backlash took so long. Yet it is now here. From Reuters:



Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been in discussions with the White House about leaving her job next year to become head of the World Bank, sources familiar with the discussions said Thursday.
Far more importantly, another rat leaves Obama's sinking ship. In the meantime, feminists everywhere rejoice, because, you know, Hillary, extremely experienced in economic, bankruptcy, and other financial issues is a woman. Next up: Oprah seeks to run the Bilderberg group, in order to give it a more "streamlined", humane appearance and Rachel Maddow in rumored to run the Trilateral Commission. Obviously, Erin Burnett is a shoo in for the CFR. And yes, the world has now officially gone crazy.

From Reuters (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/06/09/us-obama-clinton-worldbank-idUSTRE7586P720110609):

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been in discussions with the White House about leaving her job next year to become head of the World Bank, sources familiar with the discussions said Thursday.

The former first lady and onetime political rival to President Barack Obama quickly became one of the most influential members of his cabinet after she began her tenure at State in early 2009.

She has said publicly she did not plan to stay on at the State Department for more than four years. Associates say Clinton has expressed interest in having the World Bank job should the Bank's current president, Robert Zoellick, leave at the end of his term, in the middle of 2012.

"Hillary Clinton wants the job," said one source who knows the secretary well.

A second source also said Clinton wants the position.

A third source said Obama has already expressed support for the change in her role. It is unclear whether Obama has formally agreed to nominate her for the post, which would require approval by the 187 member countries of the World Bank.

The White House declined to comment.

A spokesman for Clinton, Philippe Reines, denied she wanted the job or had conversations with the White House about it.

Revelations of these discussions could hurt Clinton's efforts as America's top diplomat if she is seen as a lame duck in the job at a time of great foreign policy challenges for the Obama administration.

However, the timing of the discussions is not unusual given that the United States is considering whether to support another European as head of the World Bank's sister organization, the IMF.

The head of the IMF has always been a European and the World Bank presidency has always been held by an American.

That unwritten gentleman's agreement between Europe and the United States, is now being aggressively challenged by fast-growing emerging market economies that have been shut out of the process.

The United States has not publicly supported the European candidate for the IMF, French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, although Washington's support is expected.

Neither institution has ever been headed by a woman.

If Clinton were to leave State, John Kerry, a close Obama ally who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is among those who could be considered as a possible replacement for her.

Electric Company Of Saudi Arabia Warns Country May Run Out Of Oil By 2030 (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/electric-company-saudi-arabia-warns-country-may-run-out-oil-2030)

Sometimes we wish the oil minister of former OPEC member Saudi Arabia ("we can supply any amount of oil"), Wikileaks ("Saudi Said To Have Overstated Crude Oil Reserves By 300 Billion Barrels or 40% (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/did-wikileaks-confirm-peak-oil-saudi-said-have-overstated-crude-oil-reserves-300-billion-bar)"), and now Saudi Arabia's very own electricity company would coordinate their story. In a little noticed comment by Abdel Salam al-Yamani, head of the Saudi Electricity Company, in Al Mashka, which so far has been captured by only El Economista (http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.eleconomista.es%2Fmercados-cotizaciones%2Fnoticias%2F3137131%2F06%2F11%2FArabia-Saudi-teme-que-se-agote-su-crudo-en-2030-si-se-mantiene-el-consumo-actual.html&act=url)magazine, has provided the most recent insider confirmation of peak oil: a very troubling development for those who still naively believe that Saudi Arabia has any marginal boosting capacity, or more importantly, is willing to risk pumping more than possible. Yet, caught between a revolutionary rock and various other cartel nut cases, Saudi will soon be forced to sell as much oil as it can in order to placate it increasingly angry population with ever greater and ever more frequent "gifts" buying the transitory admiration of its people.

Many have asked for it, so here it is: the full list of gentlemen (and ladies) attending this year's Bilderberg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_Group)conference. Some wonder if like in previous years, when following the group's 2009 and 2010 meetings in Greece and Spain, the host countries have subsequently had to deal with some sad episodes of sovereign insolvency, if 2011 host Switzerland, despite its ironclad Swiss National Bank (except for all those dollars on the balance sheet of course) may be next...

Venue location: Suvretta House, St. Moritz (http://www.suvrettahouse.ch/en/).

David Rosenberg provides the key bulletized market observations that have marked the broad capital markets over the past few months.



$950 billion of paper equity wealth has been wiped off the map in the past six weeks.
The Dow is below 12,000 for the first time since March 18th.
The Transports are down more than 8% from the nearby highs and are down for the year as well
The Transports/Utilities ratio has broken down to its lowest level since November 9th of last year.
The Nasdaq is now down for the year (-0.3%)
The Russell 2000 index is also down for the year (-0.5%).
The S&P 500 is just 1.1% away from seeing the same fate.
The S&P 500 has declined in each of the past six weeks, the longest losing streak since June-July 2008.

2 hours 53 min ago (http://blogs.aljazeera.net/liveblog/libya-jun-13-2011-1808) - Libya (http://blogs.aljazeera.net/liveblog/Libya)
Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi killed 21 rebels on the frontline between Ajdabiya and Brega in east Libya, a rebel commander told AFP.

"Our men were tricked. Kadhafi's soldiers pretended to surrender, coming with a white flag, and then they fired on us," Mussa al-Mograbi said. About 20 rebels were wounded and transferred to hospital in Ajdabiya, 160km south of Benghazi.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday urged African leaders to abandon Libya's Muammar Gaddafi, saying it was time to live up to their pledges to promote democracy across the continent.

Clinton, the first US secretary of state ever to address the 53-member African Union, warned that unreformed African leaders were at risk from the same tide of democracy sweeping the Middle East, proclaiming "the status quo is broken and the old ways of governing are no longer acceptable."

"It is true that Gaddafi has played a major role in providing financial support for many African nations and institutions, including the AU," Clinton said in her speech at the AU's headquarters in Addis Ababa.

"But it has become clear that we are long past the day when he can remain in power."

Nine people were killed on Sunday when forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi bombarded the rebel-held town of Zintan with artillery and rockets, a rebel spokesman said on Monday.

"There were nine martyrs from the bombardment ... yesterday. More than 40 others were wounded," the spokesman, called Abdulrahman, told Reuters by telephone from Zintan. "It was the heaviest bombardment in several weeks."

Germany has recognised the rebel council based in Benghazi as the legitimate representative of Libyans, a rebel official said during a visit by German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.

"He said that he came here to support the Libyan revolution, to support the national council. They believe it is the legitimate representation of the Libyan people," Abdel Hafiz Ghoga, vice chairman of the rebel National Transitional Council, told Reuters after meeting the German delegation.

"He said clearly ... that the national council is the legitimate representation of the Libyan people," Ghoga said, adding: "It is a very a big step and we appreciate it." [Reuters]

AFP news agency reports: Recep Tayyip Erdogan , the Turkish prime minister, has expressed support for Britain's efforts to put pressure on Syria at the UN Security Council, David Cameron, the British prime minister's spokesman said Monday.

"Prime Minister Erdogan welcomed the UK's efforts to put pressure on the regime through a Security Council resolution and they agreed that Britain and Turkey should work hand in hand to achieve this," the spokesman said.

He said the two leaders noted that "the situation had deteriorated markedly in the last week and agreeing that the violence was a cause of deep concern".

"They agreed on the importance of international unity in response to a crisis that is increasingly dangerous for the Syrian people and the region," he said.

"The troops are divided. Four tanks defected and they began to fire on one another," said 35-year-old Abdullah, who fled Jisr al-Shughur on Sunday and crossed the border into Turkey in order to find food.

"When they started to fire on each other, I decided to flee," the AFP news agency quoted him as saying.

A cousin of the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, has been banned from traveling abroad as the government investigates the violence in the country.

The state-run SANA news agency said he ban was imposed on Brig. Gen. Atef Najib, who ran the security department in the southern province of Deraa.

The uprising erupted there in mid-March after the arrest of 15 teenagers who scrawled anti-government graffiti.

Judge Mohammed Deeb al-Muqatran of the Special Judicial Committee said the travel ban is precautionary in order for Najib to be available for questioning, the AP reported.

Al-Muqatran was quoted as saying on Monday that "no one has immunity, whoever he is".

In the videos contained on this page, Infowars reporters Paul Joseaph Watson, Aaron Dykes and Luke Rudkowski interview activists and journalists covering the elite meeting in Switzerland.

They detail how activists from We Are Change Switzerland have a written letter from the Swiss parliament informing police that they must respect the rights of those documenting the meeting and not interfere with their work.

Swiss People’s Party representative Dominique Baettig, who wrote the letter, is going to march to the meeting along with two other leading politicians from the Swiss People’s Party and demand to be allowed inside to confront the elite attendees, including Henry Kissinger, who they wish to see arrested for war crimes.

One of the Swiss politicians, Lukas Reimann, appeared exclusively on the Alex Jones show today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iSSrCTFmUc) to details their plans.

Here is a picture of the letter (in German) referred to in the videos below:

Exclusive: In Q1 Bernanke Spurred Inflation By Successfully Offsetting The Ongoing Collapse Of The Shadow Banking System (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/exclusive-q1-bernanke-spurred-inflation-successfully-offsetting-ongoing-collapse-shadow-bank)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/13/2011 23:10 -0400

While the rest of the economic world was staring transfixed at the ongoing collapse in American home equity (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/flow-funds-update-aborted-attempt-hand-over-releveraging-government-business-sector)disclosed by the most recently Z.1, we were busy analyzing the as always far more important liability side of the ledger. After all, the quarterly Z.1 update provides the only undisputed update of the state of the Shadow Banking system, or more specifically, Shadow Liabilities. Not only that, but it also fully exposes the periodic changes in the "overt" Commercial Banking system's liabilities. The results as always hold some very dramatic surprises, although those who read and understood our recent expose on the surge in foreign-banks' cash courtesy of the Fed spike in reserves, may have a sense of what is coming. In a nutshell, and not very surprisingly, Shadow Liabilities dropped once again, and for the 12th consecutive quarter (or 3rd year in a row), although the $81 billion decline was the smallest since the $604.9 billion rise (the last one recorded) in Q1 2008. The drop since then is now a total of $5.1 trillion, and the total now stands at $15.8 trillion, a far cry from the all time high of $20.9 trillion just before the 3 years of consecutive declines. That the shadow system continues collapsing is no surprise: after all with the securitization machine dead, and the nationalized GSEs (with $6.6 trillion in liabilities) unable to relever there is little marginal debt that can be accrued to the shadow banking system. Yet oddly enough, despite drops across most other shadow liability verticals, there were some very strong performers, with Open Market Paper seeing the biggest surge since Q2 2007 at $74 billion. Though what was most surprising (or least, considering that it is Bernanke's only role now, as we have said since last July, to reflate the conventional banking system liabilities, and thus assets, through QE) is that traditional liabilities of Commercial Banks exploded by $424 billion in Q1, more than offsetting the drop in the shadow banking system, and leading to a $343 billion jump in the liabilities of the consolidated financial system. To all those wondering, here is your answer where the inflation in Q1 came from. Yet the biggest stunner in the data set is just where the biggest jump in commercial bank liabilities came from. Jumping from $19.4 billion to $232.4 billion over the quarter, accounting for two thirds of the Q1 "inflation" was... interbank liabilities due to foreign banks. And there you have that foreign bank (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/exclusive-feds-600-billion-stealth-bailout-foreign-banks-continues-expense-domestic-economy-)smoking gun again...

Was The Iraq War Merely A Smokescreen For "The Largest Theft Of [Taxpayer] Funds In National History"? (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/was-iraq-war-merely-smokescreen-largest-theft-taxpayer-funds-national-history)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/14/2011 10:59 -0400
Back in 2004, following the disastrous Iraq war, started on false Weapons of Mass Destruction pretenses, and which was nothing but a backdoor subsidy to various energy contractors close to the Bush administration, the US government decided to impose a mini Marshall Plan and literally flood the country with billions in crisp $100 bills. The LA Times reports: "Pentagon officials determined that one giant C-130 Hercules cargo plane could carry $2.4 billion in shrink-wrapped bricks of $100 bills. They sent an initial full planeload of cash, followed by 20 other flights to Iraq by May 2004 in a $12-billion haul that U.S. officials believe to be the biggest international cash airlift of all time." And here we are making fun of the Chairsatan and his puny helicopter. Yet where the story gets very disturbing is that it now seems that more than half of this "reconstruction" funding was blatantly stolen! "Despite years of audits and investigations, U.S. Defense officials still cannot say what happened to $6.6 billion in cash — enough to run the Los Angeles Unified School District or the Chicago Public Schools for a year, among many other things. For the first time, federal auditors are suggesting that some or all of the cash may have been stolen, not just mislaid in an accounting error. Stuart Bowen, special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, an office created by Congress, said the missing $6.6 billion may be "the largest theft of funds in national history."" Is another huge political embarrassment in store for the current US administration (even if on this occasion it can legitimately be blamed on the predecessor?): it appears so: "The mystery is a growing embarrassment to the Pentagon, and an irritant to Washington's relations with Baghdad. Iraqi officials are threatening to go to court to reclaim the money, which came from Iraqi oil sales, seized Iraqi assets and surplus funds from the United Nations' oil-for-food program." Prepare for many more hearings involving Halliburton et al. As for where the money is - why, it has long been spent.

"The Largest Theft Of [Taxpayer] Funds In National History"
Wrong. NOT even. That began with the bailouts in 2008 and is still ongoing.
About the $12bn worth of $100 bills lost in Iraq as covered in the UK Guardian Newspaper article linked to above, the huge, impressive Large Hadron Collider that will answer fundamental questions about the nature of our universe which couldn't be built in the US because it was "too expensive," has a total budget of $9bn. Not only is that less than the amount of money lost in the Iraq cash transfer, it is less than the cost of one month of US military operations in Afghanistan.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Hadron_Collider
And the ENTIRE, highly impressive network of huge, US Optical Astronomy Program telescopes at our various observatories IN TOTAL cost less to build than 1/2 of one month's operations in Afghanistan.
When discussing the billions wasted, it is necessary to put that huge amount of money into perspective by showing what it COULD have bought instead.

Inflation, Deflation, and Stagflation, Japan and the US (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/06/inflation-deflation-and-stagflation.html)

Here is a question from a reader which I found to be well stated and probably of a more general interest."I was thinking about your general forecast which you posted a while ago, and I wanted to see if my understanding of it was correct.

You had said that your forecast for the US was stagflation because the US is a net importer, unlike Japan which is a net exporter, despite both countries pursuing a policy of ZIRP + QE.

Is the reason for Japan's deflation that all the excess liquidity leaves Japan in search of a yield (due to ZIRP + QE), and not into tangible goods (due to Japan being a net exporter/net producer)? This would be in contrast with the US, where much of the excess liquidity from ZIRP + QE flies into tangible goods due to the imbalance caused by the US being a net importer/net consumer (though undoubtedly much of this excess liquidity leaves the US in search of a yield as well). Is this correct?" This is a very nice summation of a portion the effects, but misattributes the causes. And like most summations it crushes many of the key points of a slightly more complex theory and overstates the importance of current trade balance.

In a fiat currency not constrained by external standards or other exogenous constraints, monetary inflation and deflation are always and everywhere a policy decision. As latitude on the monetary supply is constrained, so obviously the freedom to decide (choose if you will) is obviously constrained to a similar degree.

If you are Greece and under some contraints imposed by the ECB that controls your currency, you have fewer choices and greater prices to pay in making them. If one controls their own currency and is large and 'important' enough to make their decisions stick it is another matter altogether. The Wall Street banks understand this all too well.

The US is a democratic republic and a huge net debtor, in both current and future obligations. The choice of genuine deflation as such would therefore be a national economic and political suicide favoring foreign holders of its debt. I cannot think of a reasonable scenario for such a choice except for coercion such as war reparations and under heavy constraint. But it is a possible choice.

Further complicating the decision is the inescapable fact that the US holds what is still the world's reserve currency despite a movement to alternatives. A stronger dollar and monetary deflation would crush the world economy by destroying the interconnected global banking system as it is now constituted, in addition to devastating its own domestic economy. Deflation does favor the ends of a powerful few, however, so it cannot be said to be off the table.

Further complicating matters is that the people of the US are more independently minded, educated, and well armed than is normal around the world, despite a more recent program of cororatist propaganda that seems to have co-opted their news media. They are more like the Swiss in some regards. I know this comes as a surprise to most of them, but it is how it is. The US is a beacon of liberty to the world for good reasons, although that beacon occasionally flickers and suffers abuses, sometimes seemingly irrecoverable.

Their increasingly predatory financial system, together with the ownership of the world's reserve currency, probably dictated the accumulation of that large debt, significantly held by foreigners, if one subscribes to the theory of Triffin's Dilemma, (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/04/eisenbeis-whats-central-bank-to-do.html) which I do. The US had to print more than it consumed to supply currency for growth in the developing world, which was unfortunately engaged in currency manipulation and state mercantilism, and the financial system turned this into debt which it owned.

So the obvious choice is for a monetary inflation to soften the blow of what is going to be at least a de facto default on what is now a mathematically unpayable debt. Let's be clear about this. The US is facing a default and the bulk of the discussion now is about how to distribute the pain, and not fix the problems which caused the crisis in the first place.

The mercantilists who hold dollars, as a result of their gaming the global trade and fiat regimges, wish the US to suck it up and take it all. This is preferable to growing their own domestic economy and allowing their people to become more independently powerful, thereby threatening them. And the domestic monied interests wish the pain to fall largely on the weak and the many, the elderly and the poor. All of these actors are in a power position because they were the greatest beneficiaries of those structural distortions that have led the world to this crisis in the first place.

And yet the monetary inflation will not be able to have its usual effect, the magic that fiat has worked in the post WWII environment. This is because the economy is distorted, and organic growth of jobs and the median wage has been rendered untenable without significant reform in the domestic economy and global trade.

And the powers that be and the thought leaders are stuck in a credibility trap, through which they cannot effect the required reforms without indicting themselves, or at the least, dismantling the socioeconomic structure to which they own their ascendancy, whether it was through sheer luck and positioning in one of the bubbles, or in service to the monied interests by dismantling the regulations and promoting the frauds.

So the most likely course is an ineffective attempt to maintain the status quo, which cannot possibly become self-sustaining. And this is stagflation, which will continue until some crisis is large enough to change it.

It is tempting to use Japan as an experimental counterpoint to the US, but highly misleading and the cause of much misunderstanding.

Japan is most unlike the US, although the Yanks like to think of the rest of the world as little Americas, yearning to evolve into their image. The political structure is that of a one party government that was imposed on a military oligarchy which in turn had evolved from a relatively recent system of feudalism. There was no popular revolution in Japan that created their system of government. It was imposed. And the people have adopted it to suit their own preferences. There is nothing wrong with that. Nations should be able to have the type of society that suits their national character within some reasonable degrees of freedom of choice. One size does not necessarily fit all.

The Japanese economy is highly controlled and centrally planned, following an industrial policy formed by an entrench bureaucracy in MITI and the handful of kereitsus that essentially run the country like feudal lords of old.

It is a closed society, an island, with a largely homogeneous population and limited immigration. The oligarchy has a sense of national honor and responsibility. The social mores would not permit the type of personalities of the 'greed is good' world view, at least not explicitly.

Deflation suited them, and that is what they obtained. But it is important to realize that the people did not suffer deprivation because of the social contract between rulers and people, the lords and serfs. This social contract is essential to understanding the situation. And of course the fact that the people continue to have a decent, if somewhat constrained by western standards, style of living that has been consistently acceptable to them for many years.

Lower prices yes, but the losses and deprivations were not visited on the people, at least not yet. There is not the same cult of selfishness and greed, and denigration of obligation as there is in the states. Contrast CEO pay in Japan and the US. The losses were exported around the world and finessed by an increasing government debt, much of it wasted on the keiretsu's pet projects, despite the ongoing trade surpluses. But Japan appears to be heading for a change as the corruption and mismanagement of the oligarchy continues to peak through the studied facade.

So this is more the basis of my forecast, and I do not see a change in this until the US changes its financial system, and reforms its political system in a meaningful way, to diminish the influence of wealth and power and restore a balance with the voting public. There are no such things as free trade or free markets, just as there is no free lunch. All is subject to imperfection and abuse, and requires diligent effort, frank discussion, transparency, and conscious intentions. Opening your markets to slave labor makes everyone a slave.

The world economy is a very complex system, and those who think they understand it with slight effort are probably wrong and sometimes tragically so. Unfortunately they are also easily led, and in the pursuit of simple solutions may choose power over wisdom, to their own destruction.

Complete Ron Paul Highlights From Last Night's New Hampshire Debate (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/complete-ron-paul-highlights-last-nights-new-hampshire-debate)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/14/2011 19:57 -0400

While last night's republican debate was at best a complete waste of 2 hours, and at worst something not even fit for the pages of Zero Hedge (and we have very low standards - Zero "low hanging fruit" Hedge is what we are often been called), there was 20 minutes worthy of popular attention, and all of them belonged to Ron Paul. The Texas anti-Fed crusader presented his rational opinion, substantiated by actual fact and, more shockingly, math, glaringly standing out from the herd. Alas, since America always and without fail elects precisely the candidate it so rightfully deserves, it pains us to conclude that Paul has zero chance at the presidency. That said, we hope to convert at least one additional human to his cause by presenting the complete highlight reel from yesterday. Yes it is commercial- and other candidate-free so the signal to noise ratio is not seppuku inducing.

Lange Mondfinsternis

Himmelsspektakel: Am Mittwochabend geht der Blutmond auf (http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/weltall/0,1518,768390,00.html)

.....Seit fast elf Jahren habe es keine so lange totale Mondfinsternis mehr gegeben, sagte der Stuttgarter Astronom Hans-Ulrich Keller. "Alles in allem, also mit dem Durchlaufen von Kern- und Halbschatten, dauert sie vier Stunden und 40 Minuten." Allerdings lässt sich nur der zweite Teil der Finsternis in Deutschland beobachten. Der Mond geht bereits verdunkelt auf.

Von 20.23 Uhr an beginnt der Mond, sich in den Kernschatten der Erde zu schieben. Davon ist in Deutschland noch nichts zu sehen, denn um diese Uhrzeit ist der Mond noch nicht aufgegangen. Erst nach 21.00 Uhr erscheint der Erdtrabant tief am Südosthorizont. An den meisten Orten ist er dann bereits vollständig verfinstert - diese sogenannte Totalität beginnt um 21.22 Uhr und dauert bis 23.03 Uhr. Um 0.03 Uhr ist der Zauber vorbei, der Mond hat den Kernschatten wieder verlassen.......

Televizing The (Second) Greek Revolution - Three Live Streams From Syntagma Square (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/livestreaming-greek-general-strike-and-parliament-blockade)

Greece's D-Day has arrived: June 15 may soon be the 2011 equivalent of May 6, 2010 when the reaction to the realization that Greece was insolvent hit the population, together with a peak in hostilities, not to mention the US market flash crashing. In addition to a general strike, thousands are already packing the central Syntagma square in Athens, where MPa have started congregating to commence deliberations on the Troica's mid-term fiscal proposal. Already there has been tear gas fired at protesters who are gradually shifting away from their peaceful posture and slowly becoming unruly. Below is a live feed of the square as well as a link to an English live blog following up to the minute events.

Contagion Risk Increases – Euro Falls As Moody’s May Cut Rating On 3 Large French Banks Exposed To Greece (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/contagion-risk-increases-%E2%80%93-euro-falls-moody%E2%80%99s-may-cut-rating-3-large-french-banks-exposed-gr)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/15/2011 07:20 -0400

The euro has fallen on international markets as the European sovereign debt crisis is deepening and appears to be reaching a dangerous denouement. European stock markets are also weaker due to serious divisions in Greece and in the EU as to how to resolve the Eurozone debt crisis and prevent contagion. Moody's has placed three large French banks on negative review based on their exposure to Greece. The problem looks increasingly intractable meaning that contagion appears more likely every day. Gold is higher against the euro, pound and Swiss franc and lower against the U.S. dollar, the yen, Kiwi and Aussie dollar. Demand continues to be very strong especially from China and India where the World Gold Council said that there is a “tidal wave” of “gold demand coming”. The dollar is firmer despite yesterday’s stern warning from Bernanke that America’s credit rating is at risk. Bernanke urged policy makers to again increase the debt ceiling – this time to over $14.3 trillion – in the hope that this will prevent a U.S. downgrade.

Der grosse Widersacher Salehs (http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/ausland/naher-osten-und-afrika/Der-grosse-Widersacher-Salehs/story/15581216)

Der jemenitische Stammesführer Al Ahmar hat mit dem Präsidenten Saleh gebrochen und zu den Waffen gegriffen. Mit seinem Reichtum und seiner Macht bringt er den Staatschef zunehmend in Bedrängnis......

......Das Bündnis zwischen Saleh und Al Ahmar zeigte besonders in den vergangenen Monaten immer deutlichere Risse. Als Massenproteste gegen den Staatschef ausbrachen, bot sich der Stammesführer zunächst als Vermittler an. Doch der Konflikt spitzte sich weiter zu. Als die Sicherheitskräfte am 18. März das Feuer auf friedliche Demonstranten eröffneten und mehrere Dutzend Menschen töteten, wandte sich Al Ahmar von Saleh ab. Seine Kämpfer hielt er jedoch vorerst zurück. Trotz der Gewalt des Regimes wollte die Opposition ihre Bewegung friedlich belassen.

Dies änderte sich im Mai, als die Regierungstruppen versuchten, das Anwesen Al Ahmars zu stürmen. «Saleh ist ein Angehöriger unseres Stammes, aber er hat zur Gewalt gegriffen», erklärte Al Ahmar. Saleh habe Zwietracht Land säen und das Land in einen Bürgerkrieg ziehen wollen, sagte der Stammesführer weiter. Mehr...

Daniel Hügli - Schweizweit zittern Banken-CEO und viel Prominenz um ihre Leasing-Autos. Denn der zuständige Autohändler ist plötzlich abgetaucht. Und mittendrin im grossen Schlamassel steckt die Fiat-Finanzierungstochter Fidis......

......Riccardo S. hinterlässt nicht nur wütende Gläubiger, die dem offenbar in Liquiditätsnot geratenen Secondo mit erklecklichen Summen unter die Arme griffen. Höchst verunsichert sind auch rund 1200 Kunden von SAR Premium Cars, darunter viele Privatbanken-CEO, Wirtschaftsprominente, Spitzensportler und andere Leute mit viel Geld und einem Faible für superteure Luxuskarossen. Viele von ihnen müssen um ihre Autos und ihre Anzahlungen bangen.

Denn mit SAR Premium Cars baute sich Autohändler Riccardo S. in den letzten vier Jahren in Zusammenarbeit mit der Fiat-Autofinanzierungsgesellschaft Fidis Finance in Schlieren ZH ein grosses Autoleasing-Geschäft auf. Es war das Herzstück seines kurzlebigen Imperiums. S. bot seiner betuchten Klientel günstige Leasing-Raten an.

Zoologie

Männliche Putzerfische halten ihre Weibchen schlank ;):oo:hihi


( SDA ) Männliche Putzerfische sind dafür verantwortlich, dass ihre Weibchen nicht zu dick werden, wie die Zoologische Gesellschaft London (ZSL) mitteilt. Der Grund für die Bevormundung: Bei einer bestimmten Grösse wechseln Putzerfisch-Weibchen das Geschlecht und werden für Männchen zu Rivalen. Männliche Putzerfische halten sich in ihren Korallenriff-Revieren Harems mit bis zu 16 Weibchen. Geboren werden alle Putzerfische als Weibchen. Wenn eines von ihnen zum grössten Tier in der Gruppe wird, wechselt es sein Geschlecht und wird zum Männchen. Forscher der ZSL, der Universitäten Neuenburg und Zürich sowie der University of Queensland haben nun herausgefunden, dass männliche Putzerfische die Grösse ihrer Weibchen genau im Auge behalten und alles unternehmen, damit grosse Weibchen nicht zu viel naschen.

The Greek Bankruptcy Case Study Is Now A Cartoon (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/greek-bankruptcy-case-study-now-cartoon)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/15/2011 18:53 -0400

With the Greek crisis approaching surreal proportions, now that everything from this point on is a carbon copy of events from May 2010 onward, and the only question is whether Europe will succeed in kicking the can down the road for another year (not with the 2 Year at 28% it won't and the 30 Year priced at 40 cents on the dollar) all one can do at this point is laugh at the daily dose of denial at the Keynesian-cum-monetarist experiment. Alas, one also has to be dead serious about this stuff because it just may usher the eventual implosion of capitalism once again, since many (us among them), believe that the downstream effects from the bankruptcy of Greece, and thus the ECB, and thus Europe, will make Lehman seem like a walk in the park (and the only reason Greece hasn't blown up yet, of course, is that Greece does not have a profitable fixed income trading desk that Goldman would love to gets its tentacles around). So in reporting on today's events we combine the hysterical with the somber. First, we present the latest NMA cartoon summarizing the Greek fiasco in only a way that NMA can. We also share the latest Greek summary piece from SocGen (which itself will be downgraded substantially when Greece folds). It should serve sufficiently well to defuse any left over levity: "This looks like a last ditch effort from Papandreou to save the situation as his Parliamentary majority is eroded, and the opposition threatens to renege on the conditions adhered to when the IMF Stand-By Arrangement was originally signed back in May 2010. Meeting these programme requirements is a binding condition for a continuation of the EU/IMF quarterly disbursements, which are necessary to plug Greece’s funding gap. Greece’s situation, and the euro area’s sovereign crisis, have reached a new level of uncertainty."

Historic Collapse In Philly Fed Which Prints At -7.7 On Expectations Of 7.0, Weakest Since July Of 2009, Biggest 3 Month Drop Ever (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/historic-collapse-philly-fed-which-prints-77-expectations-70-weakest-july-2009-biggest-3-mon)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/16/2011 10:12 -0400

As we predicted following yesterday's disastrous New York Fed, we get the second confirmation that the economy is now contracting, courtesy of the Philly Fed, which just printed at negative 7.7 on expectations of 7.0%. This is the lowest number since July of 2009, and is the biggest three month collapse in the history of the series, plunging from 43.4 in March to -7.7 in June (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/sorry-you-cant-blame-philly-feds-collapse-japan-and-goldmans-take-todays-trifecta-bad-news), or an over 50 point drop in three months. As expected, the Fed is telegraphing that the economy is collapsing and that stocks needs to plunge another 20% before Operation Twist (QE3) is given a green light. And make no mistake: the downside 3 month momentum in the series at -51.10 is the worst ever: all those buying stocks in advance of more easing are completely forgetting that they will take major losses before the market is low enough to allow actual easing to proceed.

The GOTea is laughing today because the Dems took out one of their most effective members for something that they would have ignored.

(http://2012.com.pa/)Steve Forbes will IWF abschaffen! – Ein guter Beginn. (http://www.wirtschaftsfacts.de/?p=12480)

Juni 15, 2011


Die Aktivitäten des Internationalen Währungsfonds (IWF) geraten ins Rampenlicht der Finanzmärkte, nachdem Steve Forbes, Herausgeber des Magazins Forbes, schrieb, dass der IWF abgeschafft werden sollte, da die Institution mehr Schaden anrichte als Gutes tue. Die Welt brauche den IWF schlichtweg nicht, sondern wäre ohne dessen Interventionen in die Märkte besser gestellt. Doch wie soll man dies Regierungen erklären, die vordergründig einen Kapitalismus hofieren, der längst schon zu einer Art Staatssozialismus avanciert ist?

Man kann einen Crash auch herbeireden.Vermutlich haben Goldman&Sachs und Konsorten schon genügend Millionen und Milliarden für entsprechende Wetten eingeschossen,um wieder e.inmal einen ordentlichen Reibach in Europa zu machen.Ich erinnere an die unselige Rolle,die Golman&Sachs bei der Einführung des Euro in GR spielte.Komischerweise wetten sie offenbar nicht gegen das eigene Land,die USA,die nun wahrlich nicht besser darstehen als Europa.Es heißt immer nur "Warnung vor Crash in Europa"....

Goldman, JP Morgan Have Now Become A Commodity Cartel As They Slowly Recreate De Beers' Diamond Monopoly (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/goldman-jpm-have-now-become-commodity-cartel-they-recreate-de-beers-diamond-monopoly)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/16/2011 23:57 -0400
About a month ago we reported on an inquiry launched (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/inquiry-monopolistic-trading-practices-jpmorgan-lme-launched-sending-pms-higher)into JPM's "anti-competitive" and "monopolistic" practices on the LME which have resulted in artificially high prices for a series of commodities which had been hoarded by the Too Big To Fail bank. Today, the WSJ continues this investigation into a practice that is not insular to JPM but also includes Goldman Sachs and "other owners of large metals warehouses" which can simplistically be characterized as a De Beers-like attempt to artificially keep prices high for commodities such as aluminum, courtesy of warehousing massive excess supply, artificially low market distribution of the final product, while collecting exorbitant rents in the process. Specifically, "Goldman, through its Metro International Trade Services unit, owns the biggest warehouse complex in the LME system, a series of 19 buildings in Detroit that house about a quarter of the aluminum stored in LME facilities. Coca-Cola and other consumers say that Metro in particular is allowing the minimum amount of aluminum allowed by the LME—1,500 metric tons a day—to leave its facilities, and that Metro could remove much more, erasing supply bottlenecks and lowering premiums for physical delivery in the process. Coca-Cola, which has complained to the LME, says it can take months to get the metal the company needs, even though warehouses are allowing aluminum to come in much more quickly. Warehouses, meantime, collect rent and other fees." It is not only Goldman's Metro operations, but includes JP Morgan's Henry Bath division, and naturally commodities behemoth Glencore, all of which are taking advantage of the LME's guidelines and rules which make the imposition of a pseudo-monopoly an easy task. The primary driver of this anti-competitive behavior is the fact that GS, JPM and Glencore now control virtually the entire inventory bottlenecking pathways: "In recent years, major investment banks like Goldman and J.P. Morgan and commodities houses like Glencore have been snapping up warehouses around the world, turning the industry from a disperse grouping of independent operators into another arm of Wall Street. The LME has licensed about 600 warehouses around the world. The transformation has raised questions about whether the investment banks, which also have big commodity-trading arms, are able to use their position as owners of warehouses to manipulate prices to their advantage."And since the outcome of this anti-competitive delayed tolling collusion ends up having quite an inflationary impact on end prices, the respective administrations are more than happy to turn a blind eye to this market dominant behavior which buffers the impact of deflation on input costs. We may have seen the end of the OPEC cartel. Alas, it has been replaced with a far more vicious one - this one having Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan as its two key members.

Saudi Women June 17 Driving Guidelines
Saudi women planning to drive on June 17 should observe the following guidelines for their safety:

1) Islamic dress code

2) There won’t be any gatherings. Go out only to run important errands, visit the hospital, drop kids off at school, etc.

3) It is encouraged that you videotape the event and upload it on Youtube.

4) Drive within city limits only.

5) To reaffirm our patriotism, fly the Saudi flag and lift up a photo of Abu Mit’ib (the King).

6) No need to be scared. If the police arrest you, you’ll only be required to sign on a pledge.

7) It is preferred that whoever plans on driving to have an international driver’s license.

8) It is better if a male accompanies you to protect you and to guarantee your safety (since the ball would just be starting to roll).

9) Avoid driving into any empty plots or deserted or faraway areas because that might pose some danger to you.

10) Driving is not scheduled for one day only. Saudi women are starting Friday but will continue to take to their cars beyond that date until a royal decree is issued.

11) Any woman who fails to comply is responsible for any possible consequences.

12) Ensure notifying family and friends of your intentions to drive (in case you go missing they’ll have an idea how to act).

13) If you have a phone with internet connection, follow WOMEN2DRIVE on Facebook and Twitter.

Die Phase der Bewunderung im Westen für den Aufstieg Chinas und die damit verbundene übertriebene Überhöhung des chinesischen Modells (autoritärer Kapitalismus unter "Partei"kaderdiktat), dürfte allmählich seinem Ende entgegengehen.

Saudi women drivers take the wheel on June 17

A simple two-line email - sent to me at the beginning of May from a mysterious account named "W2Drive" - was all it took to put Manal Al-Sharif and I on the same path. A group of Saudi women were now renewing the call that began in 1990, when an group of prominent Saudi women, mainly from academia and conservative Riyadh society, drove their cars. Their rebellious actions were in vain, for the country was on the verge of the first Gulf War, and it was easy to discredit their initiative; all it took back then was to proliferate conspiracy theories - alleging these women were pushing a foreign agenda, trying to Westernise the country and break the unity of the people.

The first campaign ended with the women involved severely punished, with a ban on work and travel that lasted for years. These women subsequently avoided any media attention for the following 20 years, putting a lid on their failed attempt.....

Brad DeLong Vs. Jim Grant on the Need for QE 3 - Will the Tide Turn Before the Next Crisis? (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/06/brad-delong-vs-jim-grant-on-qe-3.html)

Notice that the need for reform and rebalancing the system never really comes up in the discussion. This is old thinking, and its killing the economy.

As you know, I think both 'expansionary austerity' and 'stimulative easing' are missing the point and ineffective, because the economic, financial, and global trade system is broken, corrupted, and badly in need of reform and structuring.

What the Fed is doing is keeping the zombie banks upright at the expense of the long suffering middle class and savers. The monied interests are gorging themselves on malinvestment, public policy failures, and a well financed campaign of economic propaganda such as that which led to the tragic lapses of regulation and the overturn of Glass-Steagall.

The effective tax rates of the super wealthy are less than 15 percent, because they draw a major portion of their annual increase in wealth from capital gains and dividends, and unrecognized entitlements. as well as a wide menu of tax avoiding schemes.

And while they moan about the nominal headline tax rates, paid only by the 'little people' even if they do not know they are little, corporations and the truly wealthy have not enjoyed just low effective tax rates in the post WW II era. And yet it is still not enough.

In light of the severe unemployment problems plaguing a large portion of families, austerity seems like a cruel joke, a coup de grâce delivered by the bankers to the income producing classes who depend on labor in the creation and delivery of real products, and not artificial arbitrage and gaming the system.

But on the other hand, stimulus seems just another excuse for the special interests to put on the feedbag once again to the detriment of the many of the next generation. There is no comparison between the Obama Administration and the New Deal in terms of real change and productive innovation.

There has been a very strong recovery in corporate profits in the non-financial sector, and the financiers barely missed a beat in distributing a healthy chunk of GDP to themselves in bonuses, while the ashes of the financial crises which they caused still glowing. And their behaviour in the mortgage and derivatives markets has been despicable. I am appalled that people put up with this sort of thing, much less defend it out of some mistaken belief in neoliberal 'free markets.'

The people should never have to bailout reckless banks who engaged in speculative self-interest, and particular when they did so with the intent to personally enrich themselves, come what may."The UK Chancellor of the Exchequer's guiding philosophy is refreshingly pro-market: 'All banks should be allowed to fail safely without affecting vital banking serviceswithout imposing costs on the taxpayer.'" George Osborne UK Considers Separating Retail and Investment Banking (http://m.yahoo.com/w/yfinance/article?id=http://xml.news.yahoo.com/us/news/rss/richstoryrss.html%3Fu%3D/afp/20110616/bs_afp/britainfinanceeconomybankingosborne&offset=11&backlink=/topstories/10/&.ts=1308260438&.intl=us&.lang=en)

The second chart gives some indication of the nature of the problem. The US enjoyed an extraordinary period of productivity and expansion, and the middle class was thrown under a bus. And now they are expected to pay to subsidize the unsustainable bonuses and lifestyles of the monied interests.

It is rare to find a market where the technical evidence is so compelling for a strong rally yet the fundamental basis for such a rally so lacking. Exactly where do Bulls think the growth and rising profits are going to come from? The answer for the past few years has been massive Federal Reserve/Federal intervention and stimulus, and a weakening U.S. dollar that boosted overseas profits via the legerdemaine of currency devaluation. But three years of these policies have accomplished nothing but load the taxpayer with staggering amounts of debt: none of the causes of the 2008 implosion have been fixed or even addressed. As Armstrong notes, the massive interventions did not shorten the crisis, they have prolonged it. This reality has filtered down to the political swamp, and now the politicos are hesitant to bet their own futures on additional trillions in stimulus and quantitative easing. For the first time in memory, the Federal Reserve is on the defensive. Simply put, its policies have failed to accomplish anything except prop up a rotten, insolvent banking sector that needs to be declared bankrupt and swept into the dustbin of history.

"Simply put, its policies have failed to accomplish anything except prop up a rotten, insolvent banking sector that needs to be declared bankrupt and swept into the dustbin of history."
This could and should have been done a decade ago when the consequences wouldn't have been as drastic. Still, doing it now is better than waiting and can kicking even longer as the scope of negative consequences continues to build.

Es gibt Tipps für Frauen, die sich in Saudiarabien verbotenerweise ans Steuer setzen wollen. Man müsse das Mobiltelefon an einen Ort legen, wo der Polizist es nicht erreichen könne. Und man vernimmt, dass einige Männer sich überlegten, sich in Frauenkleidern ans Steuer zu setzen, um die Polizisten zu verwirren. Das ist gelebte Solidarität!

SP 500 Futures Intraday (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/06/sp-500-futures-intraday.html)

As can be seen on the chart, and I have marked it in blue for the non-technicians, the SP futures are in a tightening triangle.

The reflects the uncertainty in the market with regard to the Greek (and Irish etc.) default possibilities, as well as the upcoming FOMC decision next Wednesday the 22nd which is likely to reveal the nature of QE3, whatever the Fed may decide to call it.

I think it is more likely to involve a line in the sand promising action, rather than immediate new action itself. The Fed's balance sheet is quite large already. And the markets may test their resolve sooner rather than later.

Less remarked amongst Americans preoccupied with their Weiners is the semi-annual Russell 2000 rebalancing which will occur on Friday, and may drive volatility in individual stocks that are in and out of the club.

Whichever way the market breaks, it should have some impetus behind it since it has been winding up now for nine days.

These are short term things. All the Fed and the Europeans are doing is playing for time with a backdrop of a disordered, struggling economy.

Moody's Warns May Cut Italy Credit Rating (On Friday Afternoon in Option Expiration) (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/06/moodys-warns-may-cut-italy-credit.html)

This announcement took the wind out of the equity market's sails and added a little more edge to the upcoming Sunday evening trade.

Watch the US-EUR and EUR-CHF crosses.

Even better if you are able watch the bond spreads since they are leading the currency moves these days.

The remainder of today's trade is a bit of a throw away because of the option expiration, but next week on Wednesday the Fed should announce some decision relative to son of QE2, and on Friday the Russell is rebalanced.

Plenty of volatility coming for the traders, and headaches for investors and producers seeking a stable income. That is the US casino economy.Moody's Press Release

Frankfurt am Main, June 17, 2011 — Moody’s Investors Service has today placed Italy’s Aa2 local and foreign currency government bond ratings on review for possible downgrade, while affirming its short-term ratings at Prime-1.

The main drivers that prompted the rating review are:

(1) Economic growth challenges due to macroeconomic structural weaknesses and a likely rise in interest rates over time;

(2) Implementation risks surrounding the fiscal consolidation plans that are required to reduce Italy’s stock of debt and keep it at affordable levels; and

(3) Risks posed by changing funding conditions for European sovereigns with high levels of debt.

Moody’s review will evaluate the weight of these growing risks in light of the country’s high rating but also relative to some credit-strengthening trends that have been observed in recent years and are expected over the coming years, such as improved fiscal governance, lower budget deficits and a modest economic recovery.

RATIONALE FOR REVIEW

First, the Italian economy faces growth challenges in an environment characterized by long-term structural impediments to growth and potentially rising interest rates. Structural economic weaknesses — mainly low productivity and important labour and product market rigidities — have been a major impediment to growth in the last decade and continue to hinder the economy’s recovery from the severe recession it experienced in 2009. Italy has so far only recovered a fraction of the nearly seven percentage points in GDP that it lost during the global crisis, despite low interest rates, which are likely to rise in the medium term. Growth prospects for the Italian economy in the coming years will be a crucial factor that will determine the government’s revenues and the achievement of fiscal consolidation targets.

Second, there are implementation risks to the fiscal consolidation plans that are required to reduce Italy’s stock of public debt to more affordable levels. Against a backdrop of rising interest rates and weak economic growth, the government may find it difficult to generate the primary surpluses that are needed to place the public debt-to-GDP ratio and the interest burden on a solid downward trend. The adoption of additional conservative fiscal policies may prove more difficult in the near future because the current government’s electoral support is weakening, with the government facing challenges in gaining public approval for its policies. For example, the government’s recent energy and water supply proposals were rejected by popular vote.

Third, the fragile market sentiment that continues to surround European sovereigns with high levels of debt poses additional risks for Italy. The continued stability of market demand for Italy’s debt is uncertain at current yields. Although future policy actions within the euro area could reduce investors’ concerns and stabilize funding costs, the opposite is also possible. In any event, going forward, investors appear likely to differentiate more among euro area sovereign borrowers than they did prior to the financial crisis, to the disadvantage of euro area countries with higher-than-average debt burdens, like Italy.Posted by Jesse at 3:27 PM (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/06/moodys-warns-may-cut-italy-credit.html) :verbeug

Is The Highest Equity Put-To-Call Ratio Since S&P 666 An Indication Of A Market Bottom? (http://www.zerohedge.com/article/highest-equity-put-call-ratio-sp-666-indication-market-bottom)

Submitted by Tyler Durden (http://www.zerohedge.com/users/tyler-durden) on 06/17/2011 19:42 -0400

Last Friday, the CBOE Equity Put/Call Ratio reached the highest level in the past two and a half years, higher not only than May 2010 when the market plunged on the first Greek bankruptcy, but higher than March 2009 when the S&P hit 666, and lower only than the second week of January 2009. Additionally, while this one off event may be discounted, the 10 Day Moving Average, as shown on the chart below, has now lifted to levels not seen since February 2009. A quite note by Stone McCarthy captures the conventional wisdom on the topic: "Where a 1-day rise in this indicator alerts us to investors temporarily seeking protection against a market decline, an extreme high by the 10-day smoothing line reveals a more comprehensive sentiment buildup that typically proves to be a more reliable contrary indication of a meaningful bottom being NEAR." Perhaps. However, never in the past has the Put/Call ratio been at such levels even despite the multi-trillion backstop of central banks, and worse still, just two weeks in advance of when the Fed will end its daily stimulus program. The is a saying that being contrarian in the face of conventional wisdom is the only sure way to make money. The problem with that saying is that conventional wisdom is quite often actually correct. Furthermore, last time we checked back in January 2009 Greece and Europe were not about to go Chapter 11, nor was a $900 billion asset purchasing program about to end...

US Seeks to Curtail OTC Highly Leveraged Retail Trading in Paper Commodities and Currencies (http://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2011/06/cftc-to-curtail-off-exchange-highly.html)

As part of the reform of derivatives, Dodd-Frank is seeking to prohibit Over the Counter (meaning non-exchange) trading of commodities at leverage of greater than 10:1.

The off exchange traders, particularly those trading in currencies, had expanded their markets into various commodities, offering non-product backed paper trading at very high rates of leverage.

The Congress and CFTC started taking a dim view of this sort of activity, and has tentative prohibited it as of July 15.

This does not curtail any on-exchange trading, such as the CME, or any ETFs, or any other product with a leverage of less than 10:1 or actually involving substantial physical backing or intended delivery of product within 28 days.

I have not quite gotten the time to assess the impact if any this might have on retail trading in forex itself. I have included a few forex related documents below. My initial take was that this is targeted at retail currency speculation, and gold and oil fall into it as a secondary effect. I have relatives visiting this weekend to celebrate my wife's recovery from her recent illness so I have not had time to inquire further.

This is my reading of the situation, subject to additional information. I am trying to obtain the forex type contracts detail to understand customer rights, if any, in obtaining delivery of spot commodities.

There *could* be something to this if there is in fact a means to obtain delivery in some reasonable way. But otherwise it looks like a crackdown on speculation by smaller specs in off exchange products and push to move them to exchanges for all but the larger 'exempt few' who enjoy privileged access to almost everything.

I am a little surprised that people were not screaming about 'currency controls' which might be a little more to the point that talk about prohibiting the trading in gold, oil, and silver.

For the most part it seems like much ado about nothing with regard to gold and silver and oil etc., but its good for clicks, and it helps to cheer up those sitting in depreciating paper on the sidelines who have missed the commodity bull markets.

Gold money was not private property in the 1930's, it was an instrument of the state, and subject to the state's disposal. That is not the case now.

Forex.com reportedly sent out this notice to customers on Friday.

Important Account Notice Re: Metals Trading

We wanted to make you aware of some upcoming changes to FOREX.com’s product offering. As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act enacted by US Congress, a new regulation prohibiting US residents from trading over the counter precious metals, including gold and silver, will go into effect on Friday, July 15, 2011.

In conjunction with this new regulation, FOREX.com must discontinue metals trading for US residents on Friday, July 15, 2011 at the close of trading at 5pm ET. As a result, all open metals positions must be closed by July 15, 2011 at 5pm ET.

We encourage you to wind down your trading activity in these products over the next month in anticipation of the new rule, as any open XAU or XAG positions that remain open prior to July 15, 2011 at approximately 5:00 pm ET will be automatically liquidated.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience complying with the new U.S. regulation may cause you. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service team.

Sincerely,
The Team at FOREX.com Here is one of the relevant products offered by Forex.com (http://www.forex.com/learn-gold-leverage.html):
How Leverage for Spot Gold Works

Leverage for spot gold trading is set at 100:1. This means that for every $1 you have in your account balance, you have $100 in buying and selling power for gold trading. As a result, leverage increase a client's buying and selling power and enables clients to participate in a market that may otherwise be cost prohibitive. Keep in mind that increasing leverage increases risk. This is the long and short of it. If you want to trade paper, there are still plenty of ways to do it. But you might not be able to do it in the US unless you are using an exchange with structured counter party risk and contracts, and regulated leverage.

Here are some related documents, that interestingly enough deal with the Forex aspects of this ruling.

Die lahmende US-Wirtschaft wird wohl mit weniger billigem Geld der Notenbank auskommen müssen. Die Federal Reserve (Fed) wird auf ihrer Zinssitzung am Mittwoch kaum drittes Programm auflegen.....

......Das heißt, dass nach dem Ende von QE2 fällige Anleihen bis auf weiteres in US-Staatsanleihen investiert werden", meint der Fed-Beobachter Bernd Weidensteiner von der Commerzbank.

Damit würden nur :rolleyes noch zehn bis 20 Milliarden Dollar pro Monat in das Finanzsystem gepumpt - dies ist jedoch nur noch ein Bruchteil der Summe, mit der die Konjunktur zuletzt von der Fed gestärkt wurde. Notenbank-Chef Ben Bernanke wird die Entscheidung am Mittwochabend auf einer Pressekonferenz erläutern. Der Zinsentscheid selbst wird bereits zuvor um 18.30 Uhr (MESZ) bekanntgegeben......

Gewalt in Syrien

Alltag hier, Massaker dort (http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/0,1518,769236,00.html)

Syriens Diktator terrorisiert sein Volk systematisch. Assads Soldaten stürmen nur einzelne Orte, gehen dort mit unglaublicher Härte vor - überall sonst verzichten sie auf Gewalt. Die Taktik ist perfide: Im ganzen Land verbreitet sich Angst, doch die Regierung kann sich als friedliebend inszenieren. Von der türkisch-syrischen Grenze berichtet Hasnain Kazim mehr...
