  1. Well done RB, I think you are doing the right thing. What % of your $ long position are you keeping?
  2. Now, now... we don't want this to turn into a TFH thread, do we ?
  3. You absolutely nailed it. The labour market in the Eurozone is extremely rigid: at times like these, firms cannot let workers go even if they need to. Add to this the fact that economies within the Eurozone are far from being aligned in terms of inflation, unemployment rate and national debt to GDP ratio... I'm not sure about going back to 1.62 - but the Euro is massively overvealued at these levels, that's for sure.
  4. Great find. Rubin cleared $30.6 million on his stock sales, while Prince got $26.5 million, former COO Robert Druskin got nearly $32 million and former Global Wealth Management unit chief Todd Thomson got $25.7 million, the suit said. Implicitly, this is what senior management at ALL the big firms involved in CDOs have been doing systematically, in order to buy time and sell their shares before the inevitable stock falls. It's good to see at least some of these people named and shamed. :angry:
  5. "Closed at 17990"? The FX market never closes dude...
  6. Add shocking unemployment figures earlier today, and inevitably US stock markets are... Dow +1.28 S&P +3.25 Nasdaq +18.06 go figure...
  7. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...&refer=home Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) -- One in 10 Americans fell behind on their mortgage payments or were in foreclosure during the third quarter And things have only gone downhill since...
  8. Sorry, they escorted Him out of the building with His P45 half an hour ago...
  9. No, she isn't. If she were, she'd have left him already
  10. Link http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206...&refer=home
  11. I fully expect this to develope into a Tin Foil Hat / Mad Max / Death of FIAT currencies / Bean hoarding thread. Just wait and see
  12. Basically HSBC STR'd it 20 months ago and now they're buying it back. Not all banks are led by incompetents by the looks of it ... glad I opened an account with HSBC
  13. The £70 figure is there, just under the headline. I think you are letting fear and anger get the better of you dude
  14. Wow... this is (almost) turning into a consensus! How unusual for HPC
  15. Not if everyone else also starts printing money - and they will.
  16. I think you'll find that Gordon B would much rather join at parity than at 1.62 Euros. (not that I see this happening, mind)
