Could you elaborate on wont be allowed?
Not sure, but it might be racist with Boy Wonder in office for the market to crash.
Why, I'd be happy to!
There will be an end to the QEs someday.
Nah!....EU making sure all Putins and Olegarks revenues throughout the EU are safe and secure..... Europe won’t let Russia fall..not going to happen. He and his olegarks have way too many billions stashed off shore in countries outside Russia.
Markets always shake at the sound of a feather landing on a pillow....
So after all that the DJIA finished down less than a percent yesterday and futures are up over a percent this morning. Gold and oil are back down and all the European markets are back up. What’s changed? Nothing. That’s the point.
But Europe will never voluntarily cut off something like 40% of their natural gas supplies. That’s why Europe isn’t going to do anything about this.
Russian markets ‘recovering’ on Putin’s speech today.
No war with Ukraine...stability to the country.
What will Europe do if the Ukrainians shut the gas off? The pipeline in Ukraine belongs to Ukrainians. Europe has no control over the pipeline, Ukrainian, or the gas, Russian.
If Ukraine shuts off EU gas, Vlad will shut of Ukrainain gas.
The gas is talked about but is moot. That movie has already been shown
That's their fear. So they aren't going to do anything that might anger Putin. They may take some meaningless stands, cancel a few visits, make a few speeches. But Europe will not take any position to force Putin to give up the Ukraine. And if Europe won't take a stand then anything the U.S. does will be meaningless as well. And that would be true if Romney or McCain were in the White House.
The Euro weenies don’t have to anger Putin. The Ukrainians already kicked the shit wagon over. We’ll see what happens as the Ukrainians mobilize their reserves. They’ve started calling up Ukrainian males subject to military duty.
That is the biggest issue between Russia and Ukraine. If you check the temperatures in Ukraine, they’re about at the point most Ukrainians could get by without the gas. The comment has been made that Putin has succeeded in doing something no one else in history has done. His actions have united the Ukrainians. Even the majority of the ex-president’s Party of the Regions are against Putin who is claiming that their man is still the legitimate president.
If that doesn’t tell you something about Ukrainian resolve, nothing will.
