UPDATE: Riots Hit Cyprus After Bank Accounts Frozen
http://www.activistpost.com/2013/03/eu- ... ts-to.html
Activist Post

ATMs were drained over the weekend in Cyprus after European Union chiefs decided late Friday night to raid private savings accounts to help pay for the country's $13 billion bailout.

Of course it was a holiday weekend and banks are closed on Monday, preventing a panicked bank run. It is now being reported that the Cypriot cabinet has extended the bank holiday until Thursday in an effort to calm the growing unrest. Electronic transfers have also been halted in order to prevent capital flight.

Riots are now being reported in Cyprus as citizens are furious at the Troika's decision to rob the citizens to pay for the bad debts of banks.




course 2dimes and assfitz will say riots are a good thing, they bring neighbors together, kind of like a bbq

She's not that entertaining. Chubby women are fine with me, and I'm sure her personality is great and all, but why don't you do us a favor and change your avatar?

Euro took something of a dive this afternoon.

EUR/GBP
Close Friday 0.8653
Open Monday 0.8547
Close Monday 0.8587
5.45pm (UK) Tuesday 0.8518

Euro value peak was 25th Feb this year at 0.8789

EUR/USD

Close Friday 1.3079
Open Monday 1.2927
Close Monday 1.2941
5.45pm (UK) Tuesday 1.2859

I am waiting for news but the Euro was holding steady, even rising slightly after the sharp drop at opening Monday. At 1.00pm UK it was 1.2948 USD then a sharp correction occurred mid afternoon and within 1 hour (3.10pm and 4.10pm) the value slid from 1.2939 to 1.2867. This fall then bottomed (from profit taking I would warrant) before the slide continued more gently. Market in NY is still bearish regarding the Euro and I imagine the Asian markets will follow suit when they open soon.

There has been something of a small sharp rise within the last 45 minutes (7.00pm UK) with some trades as high as 1.2901 on the spreads with a very large (huge) purchase taking place at 7.11pm. The spread on this purchase was somewhat anal clenching to those of us on the peripheries at nearly 0.45 of a cent! Since then the trades have been much narrower at around 1.2879 to 1.2883

Not a single vote in favour of the bill needed to pass for the haircut to happen.

Rejected with 36 votes against and 19 abstentions. One deputy was absent.

Now the fun starts

Pretty much every seat Moscow and St Petersburg to/from Cyprus is booked. Now a minimum 6 hours wait.

A new report from Dow Jones suggests that Cypriot banks now won't be re-opened until next Tuesday.

They managed to start some riots and still have no revenue from stealing money. Now everyone there's paying attention and most are probably looking to move their money.

What's your guess on the remaining lifespan of most of the Cypress banks now? Of course the people there will be the biggest losers when the Russians pull out and leave them broke.

Just in - Reuters

Wolfgang Schaeuble, the German finance minister

"We regret the decision," Schaeuble told ZDF television. "Cyprus requested an aid programme. For an aid programme we need a calculable way for Cyprus to be able to return to the financial markets. For that, Cyprus's debts are too high."

Schaeuble added that it was a "serious situation" now in Cyprus and said the country had no one to blame for its situation other than itself. He said he doesn't think its "business model" works anymore and warned Cyprus must act quickly.

Fc comment (sure thing Wolfgang. Perhaps you have a plan B?)

Sticky question. There are a few other items to consider in this. Not least of which is the small fact that The Bank Of Cyprus' Biggest Shareholder is a Russian Oligarch, Dmitry Rybolovlev with a not insignificant 9.9%.

News is that Russian interests have offered a €5 billion loan if Russian shareholders are allowed to increase their stakes in Bank of Cyprus.

We may just be seeing the greatest sell off of a country we could be witness to in our lifetimes.

of the size of Cyprus? Quite a few. But then the other countries would not be presently providing the dry cleaning services various Russians use :)
