  Things are getting interesting - if this news will become reality we have a life line for the Italy. Will we have the Xmas party now? Market is like a coil and suppressed by all the negativity - move to the upside can be really dramatic if Risk Trade will be coming back. Disaster is so apparent in Europe now, with Japan, UK and US to follow that we have more reasons to believe that everything will put on the line to save Italy and Europe now. We will agree that in order to stop all this mess maybe 5 trillion Euro bazooka needed, which means further unprecedented credit extension, Inflation and Gold with other commodities flying high again.

IMF Readying Loan of as Much as $794 Billion for Italy, La Stampa Reports

By Tommaso Ebhardt - Nov 27, 2011 

The International Monetary Fund is preparing a 600-billion euro ($794 billion) loan for Italy in case the country’s debt crisis worsens, La Stampa said.
The money would give Italy’s Prime Minister Mario Monti 12 to 18 months to implement his reforms without having to refinance the country’s existing debt, the Italian daily reported, without saying where it got the information. Monti could draw on the money if his planned austerity measures fail to stop speculation on Italian debt, La Stampa said.
Italy would pay an interest rate of 4 percent to 5 percent on the loan, the newspaper said. The amount could vary from 400 billion euros to 600 billion euros, La Stampa said.
