on paper. Greek's are great lying through their teeth but when you tell them to cut costs and put it on paper - it will not happen. Unless the Geeks use invisible ink and head for Default land with free Euros in their pocket.
Agree - Europe, U.S. going to body slam Putin this week or next and send Russian economy into a free fall. Oil still dropping while more sanctions will crush the Ruble going forward.
A solid majority within the ECB now believe that Grexit — Greece's exit from the euro — is now the most likely outcome of the current standoff. It game over boys when the ECB and Wolfgang both say "So Long Greece and Good Riddance".
So long $50's barrel of oil and back to low $40's in next couple of weeks. Once Isis is taken out or reduced to dragon with its head cut off - oil will plummet. And we all know oil inventory is so overwhelming now that $40 a barrel is coming very soon.
and push over $50 on Friday. FireEye no longer has the "short player chains" holding it down and as the stock moves higher you will see more big players buying the stock for a long term hold. Still a chance the company will be taken over but more and more it looks like Feye will do just fine by itself and possibly push past the old 52 week high $97 sometime this summer.
I want my "Spock" logic. And Varoufakis seems to have the perfect head to do the Vulcan Mind-Probe. Of course if its empty we have to call the "doc".
1. Greece accepts extension tomorrow (yes) (no) I vote NO
2. Greece has Parliament Vote on Friday to accept/reject Europe Extension (yes) (no) I vote YES
3. Parliament vote is "Reject" Europe Extension (yes) (no) I vote YES - but it could be close
Bottom line market should sell off going into Friday's Greece Parliament election - then its Up To the Gods.
and both sides refuse to withdraw heavy weapons as Ukraine cease-fire fails. The Merkel - Hollande peace deal falls flat on its face just like the Minsk deal. Its now time for Europe and U.S. to stand up to Putin or lose one third of Europe to his insane aggression. Send Nato troops into Ukraine and send U.S. arms to badly needed Ukraine soldiers.
and you can add that to about a million empty office buildings spread through out China. What a "White Elephant" and only getting worse.
The dying Bull's last words. Nobody cares about Greece Default, Ukraine Crisis, No Homeland security funding, Israel Iran war, etc. Of course the Bull didn't see poison volatility arrow strike his heart until it was to late. Rest in peace Bull - cause nobody cares.
smoke_le lives in Colorado and already on his third or fourth joint. Sad to see bulls take drugs to hide their upcoming losses. But then again you got to do something to kill the pain.
$203 but close around $200. But tomorrow is definitely the last time Spy ever see's it share price over $200. Its all down hill going forward since the Fed can do nothing to stop flat out world wide volatility.
as Volatility spikes due to Greek exit, Russian full invasion into Ukraine (under cover of course) and House telling Obama no money for Homeland security. Its going to hit world markets hard tomorrow and send Dow down 350 plus points. Buckle up for big Uvxy jump.
I can see the Dow down 500 points at close - no at open. In either case its going to be a barn burner and wouldn't be surprised if we wake up tomorrow with more Russian tanks invading Ukraine and Obama officially sending arms to Ukraine soldiers to hold off Putin ultimate invasion of all of Europe.
with is totally out of control and spreading. Add to that the House saying they won't fund Homeland security, and you have a huge volatility spike the likes we have never seen in our lives. Unless you traded stocks during World War I or II.
until market opens tomorrow when they can sell at a 4% to 6% loss. And that's during Pre Market. If for some reason they don't bail - well they will be an inch or two shorter at market close and an empty wallet.
Merkel might need A-10 attack jets escorting her back from Minsk after failed peace talks fall fat on their face. And even if some bogus agreement is established, Putin will smile and then go home home and tell his "Generals - Full Speed A Head" Ukraine is OURS. Since Merkel and Hollande want Russian oil more then Ukraine independence.
Speaking just hours before Greece unveils its proposal for a new reform deal to its creditors, Tsipras said Schaeuble was making "irrational" suggestions and accused him of trying to make the situation worse. "Schaeuble is proposing irrational things, to ask for a perpetuation of the mistake", he said, referring to the stringent 2010 EU-IMF bailout deal which his government insists left Greece in the financial mire. Earlier Tuesday Schaeuble had told reporters in Istanbul that "it's over" if Greece doesn't want the final tranche of its multi-billion euro aid program on the current terms, according to Bloomberg.
German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble dismissed the new Greek government’s plans to ease its debt burden as going “in the wrong direction”, after meeting with Yanis Varoufakis, his Greek counterpart. In a terse opening to a press conference after a meeting in Berlin, Mr Schäuble said he and Mr Varoufakis “agreed to disagree” over the proposals of the Syriza-led anti-austerity government. Greece could not expect further debt relief. “We went as far as we could last time,” the German minister said. “We can only provide help for people to help themselves.”
Speaking at a press conference following their meeting, Schaeuble said that to summarize the talks they had "agreed to disagree" but that they both had a "moral duty as Europeans to understand each other and to find the easiest way for Greece to default with class."d
In other words - Greek banks run out of money this month and Greece files for "default" in early March.
