[font=Georgia, serif]Italy 'bad bank' plan promises no gain without pain for lenders[/font]

[font=Georgia, serif]Tom Beardsworth and Sonia Sirletti, (c) 2016, Bloomberg(c) 2016, Bloomberg

[font=Georgia, serif]Italy's banks may have to swallow a bitter pill if they're to offload billions of euros of non-performing loans to a state-backed bad bank.
[/font]

[font=Georgia, serif]The government is set to agree with the European Commission on a mechanism to help banks sell soured loans, said two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because the talks are private.

State guarantees for the program, which could be used by individual lenders or several banks jointly, would be less than 40 billion euros ($44 billion), they said.[/font]

[font=TiemposTextWeb-Regular, Georgia, serif]While Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has vowed to reduce this ratio through public-asset selloffs to satisfy the European Commission’s budget rules, it’s much higher than it was at the same point in 2010 when, under Silvio Berlusconi, it stood at 97.1 percent of GDP.[/font]

[font=Calibri, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, sans-serif]ECB President Mario Draghi attempted to talk the Euro lower and the market higher today in a lengthy one hour press conference following his decision to not change interest rates. 

Markets are now closed, so let's put a spotlight on the results (or lack thereof) of Draghi's verbal intervention.

[font=Calibri, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, sans-serif]That is the key chart for someone who desperately desires the euro to sink vs. the US dollar.[/font]

[font=Calibri, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, sans-serif]In 15 minutes, the Euro sank from 1.09 to 1.078. For the rest of the day, the Euro rallied right back where it started from.[/font]

[font=Calibri, 'Helvetica Neue', Arial, sans-serif]How that's supposed to cause inflation remains a mystery given that it's not done a damn thing yet.[/font]
