  • What Is Holding Up The Euro? (FXE) 0 comments
    May 1, 2012 8:48 AM | about stocks: FXE

    I read an interesting comment on ForexLive.com this weekend that stated that the Euro is being propped up by EU banks shedding assets over seas at a rapid pace and bringing that capital back home.

    Which begged my question - if they are shedding assets rapidly than that would imply that they are doing so a values less than stated FMV (whatever that is).

    As a result then doesn't that imply that additional write downs will soon be showing up on bank balance sheets?

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
