The honest to god assessment of Geithener’s meeting with Draghi and German Finance minister Schauble today or the ECB meeting on Wednesday is that US and Europe in a Coordinated Central Bank effort willl affirm to more Central Bank Liquidity Swaps and the three fold action from ECB could include a threat to banks that unlesss they take their deposits from the Central Bank, they could face negative deposit rates on the same.
The third trick up Mario Draghi’s sleeve and which would trump Bernanke’s forced non event an hour later the same day, would be to reintroduce ammunition of as low as EUR25 BLn for the Stability program called the Securities Market Programme.
If you really think that means more positive things for the Euro, invest on, but I think Wednesday is a day of multiple disappointments with just Tuesday left for market to avoid its own cliff with the Dow straddling 13000 again and NASDAQ trading below 3000 with both Apple and Facebook hitting low chords with their results

Japan will also be reporting better earnings growth in Q2.
