01[10:28] {@Threei}  The U.N. Security Council is preparing to hold an emergency session on Ukraine amid worries about a renewal of full-scale conflict in the rebel-held east.
01[10:28] {@Threei}  this tidbit is the most bewildering:
01[10:29] {@Threei}  The Security Council has met well over a dozen times on Ukraine since the crisis began early this year, but little action can be taken as permanent member Russia has veto power.
[10:38] {ese} buy stop mack .51 full lot

[10:42] {nemo} ahhh
01[10:43] {@Threei}  if the world is lucky, ruble drops to zero and below in the next week or so
[10:43] {nemo} yeah, polar vortex
[10:44] {ese} agreed
01[10:44] {@Threei}  but my strong feeling is, this monster won't die before he kills Ukraine
[10:44] {Jfjf64} Valerie / Amy wine house / that's a song
[10:45] {Jfjf64} Jpm liked
[10:45] {ese} from what I was reading yesterday the central bank has used so much money trying to prop up the ruble it doesn't have anything left to lend anyone...including the govt
[10:45] {Jfjf64} Jf too
01[10:45] {@Threei}  well, not exactly right
[10:45] {Jfjf64} Ty vg
01[10:46] {@Threei}  they did spend a lot but far from all (unfortunately)
01[10:46] {@Threei}  yw
[10:46] {ese} it had to stop trying to prop it up......something like only 400million left in the coffers from billions.....that ain't gonna last long
01[10:46] {@Threei}  nah, this is wrong number
01[10:47] {@Threei}  too optimistic
[10:47] {ese} will try and find the article....but that seemed awefully low to me to
01[10:47] {@Threei}  they have way more than that
01[10:50] {@Threei}  as of Sept 30, Foreign currency reserves is $396B
[10:51] {ese} CBC News Posted: Nov 11, 2014 11:30 AM ET:Before floating the ruble, the central bank was spending its reserves in an effort to stabilize the currency. It had $510 billion at the start of the year, but only about $400 million remains.  Now it plans to limit loans to banks that use the money to go out and buy dollars, which it calls “speculative demand.”  The
[10:51] {ese} The ruble is also expected to come under more pressure next year, when Russian companies and banks will have to pay back about $100 billuon in hard currency debts
01[10:51] {@Threei}  they are wrong, it's 400 Billion
[10:52] {ese} ya ....that would make sense
01[10:52] {@Threei}  either mistype, or someone misread the comma in this number: 396,476.60 million
[10:53] {dino} whats a couple hundred billion among friends
[10:53] {ese} even so.....400 billion ain't gonna last long ....not for a country that huge
[10:56] {ese} hmmmmmmm......Bill Gates is worth about 1/8th of that
01[10:57] {@Threei}  send oil to 50-60, and no amount of reserves will save them
[10:58] {RonS} hey jf...
