    German Chancellor Angela Merkel celebrates during the Euro 2012 soccer championship quarterfinal match between Germany and Greece in Gdansk, Poland, on June 22, 2012. The markets were less than thrilled with Merkel insistence that under no circumstances will Germany provide an FDIC-like guarantee for bank deposits.

Angela Merkel made her most forceful comments yet on the possibility of Germany providing some kind of shared eurobonds and an FDIC-like guarantee for bank deposits - she said "not in my lifetime."  That quote comes courtesy of Reuters, there is a string of comments coming from the same source as we speak.

And, well, the markets certainly didn't love to hear that door slamming shut.

 Would you like them

I could go on but, well, you get the picture.  Not happening, which kind of throws some cold water on this Friday's eurosummit.

More to come.
