    Alan: @Ross, No doubt. If Draghi going against an explicit board decision, and not being open enough, that is against protocol for sure. But in the professional world, two wrongs don't make a right, and professionals don't air dirty laundry, not when you still have internal options. If the article is correct and a blocking minority is against QE, those people have friends. The debate is legitimate. But what the Germans (or whoever the sources were) did seems to be way out of bound, especially for conservative central bankers. - November 6th, 2014 02:05:12 PM

    Alan: Often EUR/USD will do a V, down at the beginning of dovish Draghi and then shoot back up. Low in 2013 at 1.2750 was during a Mario presser, another low at 1.33 after November 2013 cut, I think June 2014 (?) low above 1.35, rallied a big figure that day etc. Short from 1.2521, I decided to reverse and go long at 1.2426, S/L 1.2376. In my mind the risk/reward was worth it. I pivoted too early. - November 6th, 2014 02:00:28 PM

  • Joseph : This might be the stupidest CNBC interview of all time

    User Avatar
    Joseph: It appears that the anchor was deliberately pissing on Shanahan's Cheerios. In the middle of the conversation the banner popped up 'IRELAND NOT A TAX HAVEN?' which is obviously a rhetorical question. It was the overall interview that intended to show that no one takes Ireland's (or the IDA) economy seriously enough to engage in a normal conversation. The Irish make the false and dangerous assumption that their apparent economic juggernaut is the result of their attractive workforce, but the world knows (including their EU masters) that it's simply due to their corporate tax rates and loopholes... which is why the EU masters have been slowly bribing their current government to capitulate to their wishes to balance it, knowing that this would be a crushing blow to their economy. Shanahan represents the IDA, of course he's going to glorify the image of Ireland's workforce as if that's the major draw. I should quantify my remarks. I live in the RoI. The job I have pays less than half of what it would pay in the US (same company, same job title) and less than two-thirds of what it would pay in the UK and/or Germany. Ireland is a 'white' India to American and European companies. It's an offshore site where they can pay nearly the same for a native-English speaking resource as they would for an Indian resource. The only gold mine here is the fact that the companies can literally skirt all of their tax liability by setting up shop in Ireland. That's it. Recently, the EU masters, through debt relief bribery, managed to get Ireland to close the 'double Irish' loophole resulting in a scramble to ease the fears of the US multi-nationals from pulling the plug here. They have five years to find the next tax haven,... - November 6th, 2014 01:57:00 PM

    Greg Michalowski: @nicoco Intraday, the price is currently staying below the closing level from yesterday and 200 bar MA on the intraday chart. Intermediate and longer term trend remains positive (100 hour MA at 113.64 and moving higher) The move higher was rejected pretty quickly, so there could be some further wander lower toward that support at the 100 hour MA. - November 6th, 2014 01:30:53 PM
