FX Trading –Will Our Hero Engender A Bounce?
I guess that little coordinated interest rate cut thing didn’t do the trick.
But don’t despair citizens. Right now he’s strapping on his cape to prepare for yet another episode of “The US Treasury Saves the World” news conference to explain why the latest scheme hatched in the last 15-minutes will be just the ticket.
Our guess today is we see Mr. Paulson on Tout TV pledging all that taxpayer money that was going to take weeks to get to institutions–the ones dropping dead by the day—will now be delivered immediately, by carrier, in large boxes, very late at night lest your average money grubbing citizen (taxpayer) not be confused they rank up with the institutional ilk.
Execs at AIG are really excited by this idea. In fact, all future trips to spas and resorts on the taxpayer dime will be in the dead of night. A burden for sure given their usual MO, but one has to be flexible during these times.

Euro futures Daily:
