You guys are gonna get your act together you being a real drag on the global economy and especially for the US economy is not something that escorted something that the eurozone knows.
And exactly how well received that advice will be well.
Will it remains to be seen but certainly the ECB last week -- last Thursday announcing that.
You know -- we're gonna do whatever it takes to preserve -- -- hero.
That gave a huge boost to the markets as we know the Dow gaining close to 400 points in just a last Friday.
And Thursday's session but the question is what can the ECB do.
Well they could expand the -- buying program again they could cut the interest rates although the impact on that will probably slight to negligible.
They could also continue to offer cheap money to banks but unfortunately in Europe via the banks here just -- pouncing on those savings.
Two businesses and consumers but certainly the markets expect something.
And with the announcement from the ECB in the fact the Timothy Geithner is here I think there's a belief that there's some sort of behind the scenes coordinated effort in the works.
But it ECB doesn't come up with something spectacular the so called shock could all the bazooka on Thursday there's a good chance that they'll be able to downward pressure on the markets.

So so there is there's -- Citi.
It's a balance really.
It is a balance tonight it has a number of people I spoke to Tracy is said there -- -- would you trade the Euro for the deutschemark and they said absolutely.
There is that balance between helping their neighbors but not being exploited.
And certainly there's such a sense of Germany is gonna shoulder -- the burden.
He'll be itching to see whether Germany goes along with what the ECB wants to do.
