John Ward – Drivel Of The Day: Vandals & Yobs Are Just Growing Up Boisterously – 13 November 2013

JohnW“Whatever you do, don’t antagonise them,” top cop tells MPs

This is what Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer told an All-Party Child Committee a couple of days ago.

Doesn’t seem to have occurred to Jacquinthebox that when they’ve finished growing up boisterously, these feral kids will get Waynetta up the duff and they in turn will have Sam Psychopath.

But nobody GsAF any more. The full strength (or rather weakness) of Cheer’s remarks can be found at Drivel of the Day, home page right hand column.

Flying High : US Regulator Okays $17 Bn AA – US Airways Merger – 13 November 2013

RT logoThe US Department of Justice has given a green light to the merger of US Airways and American Airlines, creating the world’s largest air carrier. Experts fear the deal will mean higher prices as they have already increased 15% since the 2009 merger peak.

US authorities said the two companies need to sell facilities at seven airports to complete the deal. The airlines are required to sell 104 slots at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and 34 at New York City’s La Guardia, and slightly reduce its presence at five other airports.

In August the Justice Department blocked the merger, saying the monopoly created will kill the incentive to improve the quality of commercial aviation in the US, as well as increase prices.

Naturalnews-Logo2(NaturalNews) President Obama’s repeated lie that Americans who liked their insurance plans could keep them under Obamacare is turning out to not be the biggest lie of all regarding the law.

ZeroHedge – Equities Act Weak, Confused Following Oscar-Worthy Good Cop, Bad Cop Performance By The Fed – 13 November 2013

ZeroHedgeAs non-collocated, carbon-based traders walk in today, they are once again greeted by a very unfamiliar shade of green in the equity futures market. There has not been a specific catalyst for another day of equity weakness however it started in Asia, where we again witnessed a bout of EM vulnerability led by the likes of Indonesia. This follows weakness in EM across EMEA and LATAM yesterday that saw major EM sovereign CDS about 3-5bp wider while a number of LATAM 10yr rates were up between 5-10bp. EM FX in EMEA was under some pressure yesterday as well (PLN and ZAR notably), but this abated as the day wore on. This morning Indonesia CDS is quoted about 6bp wider while cash bonds are down about half to 1 point. Asian EM FX is generally weaker across KRW, INR and IDR. Asian equities have been sold from the open today including a 2% drop in the Jakarta Composite index which is on track for its largest fall since Sept 30th. The disappointment over lack of detail from the Chinese government’s Third Plenum meeting is showing up via a 2.0% drop in the HS China Enterprises Index and 1.3% drop in the Hang Seng.

DealBook – Federal Regulators Unveil Rules On Their Sometime Proxies, Bank Consultants – 13 November 2013

DealBook

By BEN PROTESS and JESSICA SILVER-GREENBERG

Private bank consultants, long known as Wall Street’s shadow regulators, are now facing some regulation of their own.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, which oversees some of the nation’s biggest banks, announced on Tuesday that it had adopted some of the first federal standards governing the use of consultants. The standards, which outline how the agency will review consultants and monitor their work for banks, could curb the influence of a multibillion-dollar industry that faces questions about its perceived coziness with Wall Street.
