doesnt look likee it goes down monday - from zerohedge-
" The Hill reports that a Senate aid with knowledge of the talks said late Saturday afternoon there is "no major progress." The rare weekend negotiations continue with the sticking point still taxes - which will come as no surprise to any who read/listened to Ron Paul's clear analysis of the idiocy taking place - but differences on other issues, including spending cuts, linger. Reid has scheduled a Democratic caucus meeting for Sunday afternoon to give his colleagues a chance to weigh in on a potential deal. McConnell has said he would do the same. "
no progress saturday and both sides of the senate are just having meetings to get their members feedback, meaning no deal before mkts open monday imo. i imagine that means further selling and the vix keeps going up. looks like those who thought this had a good ride may be right. i really thought those DC weasels would do something at the last minute.
