  • Stock futures and the euro rocket higher on a "breakthrough" in Brussels, where there is agreement, according to EC President Van Rompuy, on a tighter union (i.e., central fiscal authority), and on allowing banks to be recapitalized directly by the rescue funds. S&P 500 +1%, the euro +1.2% to $1.2589.  [View news story]
    It's like Spain banks bailout. Even before you blink your eye the same news turns negative. Remember, a couple of weeks ago, Asia rallied assumed Spain banks were bailed out. And, the rest is history not so long ago.

    If there's a QE3 all the emerging markets will fly high. Indian markets are already moving up hoping something may happen like this.

  • Precious metals accelerate their slide alongside the drop in equity markets and the euro. Gold is down 4.5% to $1,589/oz., the lowest price since September. Silver, off 8%, drops below $29/oz. On the industrial side, copper -4.8% to $3.27/lb., still well above the $3 level hit in October.  [View news story]
    This is understandable as Euro said no to just printing money.

  • October figures show China had its first monthly net outflow of foreign currency in 4 years as the path of the yuan may not be the one-way bet it once was (higher). "Three years ago, perhaps the yuan was wildly undervalued, but now on the basis of these flow values, it's fairly valued," says ING's Tim Condon.  [View news story]
    There's a massive outflow from India,too. Indian interest rate is one of the highest and still west dumps rupee. I can't understand the logic behind it.

  • Fixing Wall Street: Abolish Credit Default Swaps [View article]
    I love CDS even though I've have never participated in it. It's a great way of insuring any debt. I love the way it's unregulated. I fancy myself making fortune in CDS someday.

  • Fed official says more bond purchases may needed [View article]
    If there's QE3, it will drive commodities, emerging markets and their currencies. There will be an inflationary pressure on US. As simple as that.

  • Stocks jump on reports of progress in Europe [View article]
    Oh, wait for couple of more day, say on Thursday, the market will lose 2% again saying that France and Germany never agreed anything like that.

  • Market recap: Sellers, skeptical of the market's ability to sustain recent gains as Europe's leaders seem to pay only lip service to their fiscal condition, knocked ~2% off all the major indexes. Concern about European exposure of banks was hardly quelled by a better-than-expected Q3 report from Citigroup. Apple fell a bit despite its huge iPhone 4S launch. NYSE losers led gainers five to one.  [View news story]
    Okay, this is the second part of "Bi-weekly" Greece is good and bad tirades. Yes, last week Germany and France agreed (or we believed so......) and this week they're not. And the market pendulum swings again.

  • CBO estimates $1.3 trillion deficit for 2011 [View article]
    The issue is not the deficit or debt. It's how they're used to create jobs confidence among people. Corporate + Citizens' Savings = Govt Debt. When people start spending govt can repay their debt. It shouldn't be a problem.
