    Default Euro to collapse within two weeks? $900 million says it will.

    Leading economists and market specialists have been stunned by a huge bet that has been placed on the downfall of the Euro within the next two weeks.

    This is a huge bet for any person to make and must suggest some inside infromation or simple madness. Eitherway someone is going to make a huge amount of money or have a serious hole in their pocket.

    Someone has placed a GIGANTIC $900 million EURO PUT trade on the Euro to crash vs. the dollar within 2 weeks. Is this a ‘smart bet’ by someone who has seen the writing on the wall with the situation in Cyprus or does someone have inside knowledge that something big is about to happen? Beware! We have seen this before as shared in the videos below; in fact, it happened prior to September 11th, 2001, and we ALL saw what happened thereafter. This story is brought to us by Derivatives Intelligence.:
    $900 Million Says Euro Crashes In 2 Weeks: PUT Trade Rocks London Options Market |






    A EUR900 million trade rocked the London options markets this morning.

    The two- week put on the euro against the U.S. dollar stood out as options trading in EUR/USD has been quiet this year due to the range-bound nature of spot, according to traders in London.

    Been a lot of "Cry Wolf" stories about the Euro.

    That said it is highly unstable & may not last forever...

    Ah, this old chestnut,

    Remember this?

    The eurozone really has only days to avoid collapse - Financial Times, 27 November 2011

    And to think that some people take Munchau seriously.

    Actually, you're right. If this had been a 900 BILLION flight of capital out of the eurozone, then that would have been a story.

    900 million would keep Cyprus running until June.

    Why do you think US banks keep having to be bailed out?

    There have a number of shorts like this and bigger. All of them bet wrongly and all of them were by US banksters.

    None of them can get into there heads that there is political will in Europe to save the Euro.

    Also the Euro has been on the receiving end of a financial assault form the USA for some years now that would have decimated the Dollar if it had been on the dollar.

    It is a currency war and only one side is firing and actually losing, which is kind of ironic.

    Was this 900 million bet made with the traders own money? Or was it made with someone elses money in the expectation of a huge bonus if it wins and the taxpayer taking the loss if it doesnt?

    It could also be a put protection strategy by someone holding significant Euro denominated assets, hedging against a downward movement in the € to offset a potential loss in existing portfolio. Either option though points to someone with a strong view that the € will weaken in the short term. It could be an expensive hedge policy or a straight forward crab shoot.
