OH for got the Most Important quote from that story

Bittar, who joined Deutsche Bank in 2001, took billion-euro positions on the direction of short-term interest rates with the firm’s own money and reaped hundreds of millions of euros in profit for the bank.

The lender started to scale back its proprietary-trading operations in 2008, and Bittar was named global head of money market derivatives trading, moving to Singapore, in the years that followed, according to the CFTC. The lender dismissed him in December 2011, people with knowledge of the situation said in 2013.

The financial trader accused of helping precipitate the “flash crash” will now spend the weekend behind bars, having been unable to pay £5.05m bail.

He faces extradition to the US on Department of Justice charges which carry a maximum sentence of 380 years if he is found guilty

Among the Deutsche Bank AG traders whose e-mails were made public when the lender was fined a record $2.5 billion for rigging Libor, one stands out.

“LETS TAKE THEM ON !!” he said in a Sept. 21, 2005, message to a rate-submitter at Deutsche Bank, according to the bank’s settlement with the New York Department of Financial Services, which described Bittar by his title. The rival bank “IS DOIN IT ON PURPOSE BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE EXACT OPPOSITE POSITION.”

“Ok, let’s see if we can hurt them a little bit more then,” the submitter replied

Saying the company has received hundreds of résumés since posting the job opening to its website earlier this week, Goldman Sachs human resources manager David Browning reported Thursday that a high-level position with the investment bank had attracted applications from every official in the United States Treasury Department. “Within just minutes of listing the open position on our jobs page, the flood of applications from email addresses started rolling in, and it hasn’t slowed down since,”

most of the Treasury regulators who applied for the job highlighted their previous experience working closely with Wall Street financial firms and included a letter of recommendation from former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.

the new hire was needed to take over the responsibilities of a former Goldman Sachs executive who had recently left for a high-ranking position in the Securities and Exchange Commission.

CB FWIW I don't think Varafoukis is doing a good job for the Greek people. He might not be in it for the money. Who knows? But he certainly seems to be in it for the fame. I don't know enough about his background to know who pulls his strings but judging on results he's not someone I think particularly highly of.

He may have failed, but I doubt he lied -- lies that got millions killed, nor do I think he is duplicitous (Yellen) who portends to care while literally starving the elderly.

CB - Varoufakis is a prime contender for the AHNC (All Hat, No Cattle) award (the much coveted Golden Sombrero) along with Yellen and some minor political figures -- either or both of the current leaders can disqualify themselves with an act commensurate w/ their talk

Varoufakis missed his opportunity earlier when the Good Cop Bad Cop card should have been played - now it is a question of the Troika Bad Guy who appears to be Draghi -- IMF is powerless and EU Council is too prone to further consults so it falls to the ECB to test the Greeks // Capital controls to stop the EUR drain in Greece could be tied to a EU withdrawal deadline (your money or your life) BUT ... only talk from Greece so far

We shall see if he or his mates have a PLAN - it appears not, hence, his Frontrunner Status (see below for a picture of the Award and a recipient at its presentation ceremony some years ago)

So they patch it up. Varafoukis is the fly in the ointment. Some suggest he is on the Soros payroll. (What someone else?) So Varafoukis drags things on for as long as he is able. (Which is what he is paid for.)

fwiw, I've been following Varafoukis, via his blogs and his interviews on Max Keiser, for years. If he could, he would like to pull an Iceland on the ECB and the Banks that have raped - his thinking - Greece. That is what the present Gov was elected to do. If he/they fail, he'll just get another academic postion...albiet better paid thanks to his experience. But I don't think he'll cave to the Bankers.

But, frankly, you do know that Greece was set-up to fail, don't you? And by dissing Varafoukis, aren't you siding with those who, as your regular postings here imply, you believe are corrupt. Or are you so cynical that you can no longer recognize someone who is not just in-it-for-the-money.

Global-View Week ahead Planning Guide for Trading

An aggressively easy ECB monetary Policy is locked in until well into 2016. It has been resulting in negative interest rates well out the curve. Low interest will continue to be a chronic weight on the EUR until this policy can be lifted. The falling 2-yr German schatz is a manifestation of that policy.

Fed policy signals have been mixed. In sum, the Fed is preparing the markets for an eventual slight increase in the Fed Funds target, but is assuring markets that any policy tightening will be extremely gradual. We are expecting no policy changes form the Fed this Wednesday. U.S. economic indicators remain mixed.

The upcoming week is a full one for data. Monday, April 27 features the Markit flash Service PMI data for the U.S.

On Tuesday, U.K. GDP and the U.S. Conference Board Consumer Sentiment are due.

On Wednesday April 29, the major focus will be the latest policy decision of the Federal Reserve. No rate changes are expected.

The session also sees 1Q15 U.S, GDP.

Thursday April 30 features flash Eurozone CPI data, which is a policy focus for the European Central Bank. The Fed inflation policy target, the PCE deflator is due as well.

On Friday May 1, many markets will be closed for the May Day holiday. Key markets that are open will see final Manufacturing PMI data for April.

So they patch it up. Varafoukis is the fly in the ointment. Some suggest he is on the Soros payroll. (What someone else?) So Varafoukis drags things on for as long as he is able. (Which is what he is paid for.) But eventually they (Europe and Greece) get down to brass tacks and a deal is hammered out. In the meantime Germany enjoys a relatively capped Euro and (supposedly) all other Euro nations are suitably chastened by the spectre of what might happen to them if they get out of line (ie. don't implement neo-conservative policy agendas). Seriously isn't this script just a little bit boring by now?

Then there is the biggest question of all: How can a guy working from his parents’ house in suburban England whose only actionable orders were to BUY stock market futures cause such a sensational collapse in U.S. stocks? On the day of the flash crash, Sarao never actually sold stocks. He was trying to trick the market into falling so that he could buy in more cheaply. But whom did he fool with his trick? Whose algorithms were so easily gamed that they responded to phony sell orders by creating a crash?

It would also be interesting to know how it occurred to Sarao that his trick might work. There’s a fabulous yet-to-be-told story here, about a smart kid in the U.K. who somehow figures out that the machines that execute the stock market trades of others might be gamed -- and so he games them. One day while he is busy trying to trick the U.S. stock market into falling, the market collapses, more sensationally than it has ever collapsed.

Apparently the Russians and Chinese have funds and are ready to help the Greeks out if need be. Don't know what the other side of the bargain is. The Europeans don't have a monopoly on funding at any rate. And the people in the 'lets dominate the world' crowd don't like competition apparently. Why? Beats me.

Well there seems to be some belief that if Europe doesn't come to a reasonable deal with Greece then Greece will embrace Russia (and China). And in some quarters this is not seen as a good thing. So the strategy seems to be: keep Greece in the EU. Why? No idea. Geopolitical nonsense best understood by complete maniacs.

The USD/JPY trade since the PATIENT died has been supported at the daiy 89ema - this period has seen the smallest decline of the three declines since Ben's "never mind", Oct touched 89 ema, Dec to Jan saw two sharp drops but no approach to 89ema - the current period seems just a time correction that may end before the 21 dma crosses the 55 ema - early May sees a lot of forces as the markets start to cling to every new (even insignificant) datum as the Fed wrings its hands
