Crollo improvviso a Piazza Affari: Unicredit affonda fino a -10% poi recupera


Incredibile crollo alla borsa di milano pochi minuti fa. Il titolo unicredit è passato da 1,47 fino a 1,314 euro ad azione in pochissimi minuti accusando un calo superiore al 10%. In questo momento è stato sospeso dalle contrattazioni per scostamento prezzi. Non ci sono notizie al momento che giustifichino tale crollo. Guardando il grafico oltretutto si scopre che il crollo è avvenuto con la vendita di circa 30 milioni di azioni in pochi secondi. Probabilmente si è trattato di un errore di qualche operatore che ha messo uno 0 di troppo in un suo ordine. Tuttavia, ci sono state notevoli  ripercussioni anche sugli altri titoli bancari e sull'indice Ftse Mib che è passato da +1,45% a -1% a quota 19290 punti. Vedremo se nelle prossime ore si saprà qualcosa a riguardo.  
In questo momento unicredit, in fase di pre-asta quota 1,37 euro.

  1. Most people don't know that UniCredit is the direct descendent of Oesterreichische Credit-Anstalt, the largest bank in Eastern Europe before World War II. Translated the name means: Imperial Royal Privileged Austrian Credit-Institute for Commerce and Industry. It was a Rothschild bank. The family founded it 1855, and it became one of the most important banks in Europe.

    Credit-Anstalt held assets and took deposits from all over Europe. In 1931, the bank failed as a direct result of the U.S.'s Smoot-Hawley tariff. The act crippled Germany's economy and led French investors to redeem all the capital they'd lent to the bank. The failure of Credit-Anstalt caused Austria to abandon the gold standard, which set off a series of economic dominoes. Germany left gold… then Great Britain… and finally, in 1933, so did America.

    The failure of Credit-Anstalt is what really kicked off the Great Depression. I have long been convinced the failure of its successor bank – now called UniCredit – would presage the next global monetary collapse.

    I first began warning investors about UniCredit's likely collapse and its historic role in the world's monetary history back in March 2010. Since then, the bank's shares have grown weaker and weaker. And since March, the shares have fallen off a cliff, hitting lows not seen since March 2009.

    The sudden weakness in UniCredit's shares (down 21% in the last several weeks) indicates to me that big trouble is brewing in Europe. I don't believe efforts to stop the crisis in Greece will work. The austerity measures undertaken in Ireland, Spain, Italy, and Greece have severely weakened these economies, causing loan losses to banks like UniCredit.

    And if there's a run on UniCredit (and I believe there will be), the losses will be too large for Italy to manage without a huge international bailout. UniCredit has borrowed $300 billion from other European banks. And Italy's government already owes creditors more than 120% of GDP. There aren't any easy solutions to this problem.
