aside from that NO innovation at all came from germany in the past 50 years . All major innovations came from USA.
Germany is behind the curve, its administration is more expensive than US administration , that sucks on real GDP.
Yes US can indeed kick the can down the road much longer.

Xaron, you're absolutely right but there's a difference 1) US has the world's reserve currency and 2) its economy is "perceived" to be on the right path to recovery. Hence it can kick the can down the road longer - its day will come but later. Europe's problems will come to the fore within days/weeks.

Who cares about troubled Irish bonds? Who cares about the EFSF not being to payed back? US debts will never payed back as well, same is true for Japan.

Moreover losses from Irish troubled bonds mount on Ezone banks, and RBS.
And more violent riots in Greece, Italy stocks in big trouble. Austerity and exploding inflation simply don't match. My prediction was: EFSF will never be paid back. Germany will be biggest loser.

Tony, what about the unresolved debts issues in the US? Markets get tired of looking at Europe all the time...

Intuitively the Euro should be falling given sovereign debt issues still unresolved. This kind of spike always happens before a big fall. My guess is tomorrow's Irish decision will not be Euro friendly.

Why is the market so optimistic about this inflation driven tight retorics of ECB? If anything, it is the European economy that litterally will suffer shortage of energy, not the US. What kind of growth will Italy / Germany show come end of 1Q2011?

Aforementioned stops were duly tripped through 1.3740 in early trade. Classic risk aversion play (heavy selling of EUR/CHF), Cyprus downgrade, Chinese Minister warning of slower Chinese Jan-Feb some of the factors impacting in the early move.
I was going to report buy orders at 1.3700/10 before our systems went down, which is now pretty much self evident. Russia was notable buyer around the lows and weve ralied back to 1,3745 at writing.
Sell stops now seen through 1.3700 and more through 1.3680.
