AL 14:13 - I have difficulty watching Merkel genuflecting to Kerry who appears to be chaperoned by Victoria "fu*k europe" Nuland at the g-7 meetings like a bad fart that has not left the room. Unless the reason Merkel is on the American bandwagon is that 0bama's gang have something black-mailable on the German "leader" - maybe there is something in those snoopings of her phone scandalous headlines - in which case Merkel would be a certifiable idiot in which case she should somehow fake some near-death disease and abdicate instead of letting herself be played like a puppet to the detriment of the German Nation (ie. EU)

Swift sanctions.......The European Union will name 15 more Russians subject to asset freezes and a travel ban on Monday and senior EU diplomats will meet the same day to discuss the next steps, EU sources said.
Is this the only thing that they can think of.... pathetic...
What is clear is that the main gas tap to Europe runs through Ukraine and a little terrorist action of cutting a hole in one of the pipelines could easily destroy any hope of the nascent EU recovery instantly (IE Russia does not need to turn the tap off per see). The US forgets that the trade flow from the EU into Russia is 10x the trade from the US. Hence any sanctions hurt Europe more than Russia
PS An alternative would be for Russia to institute maintenance on the pipelines to reduce the flow to a trickle.
PPS A Russian default along the lines of the one back in 1998 would also hurt EU banks dramatically
The list and possibilities of what Russia can impose on the west are almost endless. Once again 0 and Merkel are blind to un-intended consequences of their ridiculous sanctions
and they also fail to recognize the history of Ukraine which has always been a puppet/over run call it what you wish for 4000 years but more especially they fail to see history over the last 150
FX impact on the majors is unclear and hence why volatility has dropped back to 2005/2006 lows (and may drop even further) in that the push pull so far this year may very well continue right the way through the summer despite (or should that be in spite of) the risk on/off bipolar nature of so called investors who now seem to have a time horizon of 48-72 hours at best. The issue with this is that the major funds whether they be mutual or hedge run by Fink / Ebsworth / Dalio etc etc are too large to have any serious internal bottom line impact unless they decide (unlikely) to liquidate on masse
With the news fixation of the FX market then it seems that 20 mins per day at a max of 2 times per day (invariably at unsociable hours) remains the only driver of very mediocre returns

(Reuters) - Leaders of the Group of Seven major economies agreed to impose extra sanctions on Russia over its intervention in Ukraine, where armed pro-Moscow separatists detained a group of international observers and accused them of being NATO spies.
