Crisis time in Europe and if they cave to Greece they cave to everyone else. Read on
The increasingly fierce attacks on austerity in Lisbon are likely to heighten fears in Berlin that fiscal and reform discipline will break down altogether in southern Europe if Greece’s rebels win concessions. Worry about political "moral hazard" is vastly complicating the search for a solution in Greece. “Greece is the testing ground and everybody is watching very carefully. That is why the Spanish and Portuguese prime ministers have been so hawkish,” said Vincenzo Scarpetta, from Open Europe.
I see Greece one day closer to default and crumbling Euro. Good for a 15% correction when it kicks in.
France and Germany are no where close to a deal with Greece, even though the Greek Finance Minister keeps claiming a deal is a week or so away. In fact Germany is now claiming the gulf between what Europe wants and what Greece wants (reform vs more IOU's) is wider then ever.
Germany and France have strongly urged Greece to “accelerate” an agreement with the eurozone to prevent the highly indebted country from going bankrupt in 10 to 15 days. During talks in Berlin, Angela Merkel and François Hollande expressed fears that Greece is heading for a default on debts owed to the International Monetary Fund at the beginning of June.
Gee and I always thought those little "Green Men" who showed up in Crimea last year and Eastern Ukraine were from Mars. Now I know they are Russian soldiers sent by little Hitler (Putin) to kill innocent Ukrainians. So how is Russia going to spin this story???
he Ukrainian government on Sunday claimed to have captured two Russian officers who were operating in the rebel-controlled area. Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said on Sunday the two Russian officers have been taken prisoner by the volunteer Aidar battalion in the town of Shchastia, not far from the front line. He would not provide further details and said investigators were questioning the men. Aidar said on its Facebook page that the two officers were wounded and taken captive in a skirmish in the area early on Sunday.
and its not even 6 pm yet on East Coast.
Rumors were just Rumors and Feye is a "Dog" if there ever was one. Could we see high $30's today. Maybe but definitely yes for tomorrow. Cisco won't touch FireEye with a ten foot pole and IBM is losing money hand over fist. Its was all a pump and unfortunately lots of investors got caught in a one way wrong trade. UGH
or is there still a time line restriction in effect that won't allow shorting of Shak shares? Scottrade for weeks, if not months has said "at the time no Shak shares available for shorting". So is shorting prohibited right now and if so when will it be lifted? And if "shorting" is allowed how come no shares available to trade?
Very unusual since Shak has been trading for quite sometime.
I've been trying to short Shake Shack for weeks and can't find any shares to short. Either there are no shares to short or (I think) none yet open to the market. In either case I'm glad I never shorted since this burger joint seems to want to run to triple figures. Who knows how high it will go but I might "short" around $100 if shares can be found.
You got it wrong dec2012greattribulation. Obama is putting all his time, energy and money kissing up to Iran so the Iranians get the nuke and sell oil on the side. Yea Obama doesn't want the Greeks to let the Russian build a pipeline through Athens but our President could care less about Greece when he wants to make sure Iran controls the Middle East for years to come while make sure Israel glows at night for here to eternity.
So says new CEO.
After failing to land a big acquisition in the security space and suffering a steady decline in market share, Cisco Systems John Chambers and new CEO Chuck Robbins are determined to turn around his company's lagging security business - whatever the cost.
Sure looks like Feye could be on Cisco radar. As in "take over" radar.
The eurozone recovery isn't as strong as everyone thought — and it's the fault of Germany and the UK.
New data from Eurostat out Wednesday morning shows Europe's economy grew by 0.4% in the first three months of the year, short of analysts' forecasts of 0.5% expansion. Oh my - and now we have Europe economy slipping while China's economy is in a free fall.
Spy headed way South as in $190's very soon.
I wish it could just be over with. This drip, drip, drip toward insolvency is hurting markets and slowly increasing volatility. Not a good combination to have heading into the long summer months since the Bull is starting to look very in the tooth.
since the market seems to be picking up steam on the down side. When news break tomorrow that Greece is just days away from default - you will see Spy sink to $175 and keep falling. You have been "Warned".
market can't see the forest for the trees - but huge forest fires is coming next week.
Although prime minister Alexis Tsipras has repeatedly stressed that his party is not planning for a Greek default on debt, documents from the Tsipras administration leaked by the Greek press make clear Syriza's position that "if there are no clear moves, the country will not hesitate to move towards a credit crunch by not paying its IMF instalment in mid-May".
and come next week the Bull will run smack dab into a Greek Default and no know what hit it. Correction time next week so play your cards wisely.
and you thought little Greece was a Non-Event. HA
No shares to short IBB but you might just do better shorting Biotech going long BIS. Yellen just told investors a correction is coming and Biotech could get wiped out. She says Biotech is over bought, over bloated and ready for panic selling at the first sign of a CORRECTION.
Yellen just told investors to dump stock and be prepared for a "major correction". Its game over for the bull now and no longer sell in May and go away. Its more like panic sell in May before your profits go up in smoke.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
