First - BBT is a bank and the financial mess in Europe is affecting banks (does not matter if they have no exposure). Second - the economic mess we are in was 25 or more years in the making. Slight improvement in a few indicators does not fix the problem. The cycle of healing the economy and resetting world finances will take years - nor weeks or months. Third - the FED is out of bullets and deflation is here (check oil, metals, ags, etc) and the FED cannot stop the natural economic cycle (they have delayed it, now it happens).
