    Sizable pre-open gains in stock index futures melt away with the crumbling of Greece's ruling coalition as good of an excuse as any for selling. Just like the old days: The euro (FXE) quickly slips about 70 pips and the Stoxx 50 (FEZ) drops 1%, now flat on the session. S&P 500 (SPY) futures +0.25%.

    Europe turns decidedly lower, the Stoxx 50 now off 0.8% following Mario Draghi's press conference, with markets perhaps deciding to punish his somewhat smug performance: "OMT has probably been the most successful monetary measure for some time." - a curious statement considering it doesn't yet exist and Draghi admitted the legal paperwork isn't complete. Leading to the downside is Italy (EWI), tumbling 2.3%. The euro (FXE) continues to rise, +0.7% to $1.3182.

    The euro tumbles about 30 pips as European Industry Commissioner Antonio Tajani tabs the currency as too strong and calls on the ECB to manage its level to better-help exports. FXE now up just 0.1%.

    The euro (FXE -0.4%) tumbles as Mario Draghi - in prepared remarks in Rome - says the ECB is ready to act again in coming weeks. The comments are not a whole lot different than what he said post-rate cut at his press conference last Thursday.

    It tells you all you need to know, says Danske's Owen Callan, that the ECB would consider negative deposit rates rather than buying government paper. Draghi saying he has an "open mind" on negative deposit rates looks to be what sent the euro tumbling about 100 pips on one 5-minute bar. FXE -0.6% premarket.

    "There was a very strong prevailing consensus towards an interest rate cut," says Draghi, now taking questions at his press conference. The answer suggests the vote wasn't unanimous (Weidmann?). As Draghi points to higher stock prices as one measure of the ECB's success, markets turn tail, the Stoxx 50 (FEZ) now off 0.5%, and the euro (FXE) really tumbling, -0.8%.

    European equities climb following mixed eurozone PMI data, with German shares just about brushing off poor PMI readings for the country, although the euro falls vs the dollar. EU Stoxx 50 +0.8%, London +0.5%, Paris +1.2%, Frankfurt +0.1%, Milan +0.7%, Madrid +1%. Euro -0.7% at $1.2979.

    Smoking the euro (FXE -1%) but offering no help to European stocks (FEZ -3%) is the ECB's (and Germany's) hawkish Jens Weidmann suggesting the central bank could slash rates if punkish economic data keeps rolling in. He brushes aside the idea the region's debt crisis is anywhere near over. "The calm that we are currently seeing might be treacherous."

    The euro's (FXE) continued sharp decline - off  nearly 10 big numbers since early February - has the bears feeling their oats. Guggenheim's Scott Minerd - burned badly shorting the common currency in 2011 - says he got short again at $1.34 and sees the euro going to parity with the greenback as the ECB will eventually have to buy up peripheral government debt.

    Like in Asia, European shares rise, as do U.S. futures, following news of Cyprus's €10B bailout deal, with the EU Stoxx 50 +1.3%, London +0.6%, Paris +1.4%, Frankfurt +1.1%, Milan +0.4% and Madrid +0.8%. S&P futures +0.35%, oil +0.4%, gold -0.1%.

    Asian shares fall sharply following news of the raid on bank deposits in Cyprus as part of the island's bailout. The planned move also sends the euro and oil lower, while the yen regains its safe-haven status. Japan -2.7%, Hong Kong -2.4%, China -1.5%, India -0.9%. Euro -1.3% vs the dollar, -1.3% vs the pound, -2.2% vs the yen and -0.6% vs the Swiss franc. The yen is also +0.9% vs the dollar. WTI -1.2%, gold +0.3%.

    Crisis on. S&P 500 futures -1% and the euro -1.2% as Brussels "faced with a drowning member state, instead of throwing the Cypriot people a lifebuoy, (throws) a millstone around its neck." EU leaders risk triggering bank runs in Cyprus (and elsewhere?) by going after bank depositors to fund the country's bank bailout.

    Draghi: Risks remain to the downside, he says, announcing cuts to the ECB's EU GDP growth (or contraction) forecasts for 2013 and 2014. The euro (FXE) shoots higher, now +0.7% at $1.3058. Go figure.

    The currency markets are whipsawing a bit following the Italian election, with the euro recovering smartly against the dollar after dropping sharply earlier to a seven-week low of $1.3039; it's now +0.2% at $1.3083. The euro is -0.6% vs the yen at ¥120.4015 as the Japanese currency regains somewhat of a safe haven status.
