Receding debt fears push European shares higher





LONDON, May 18 (Reuters) - European shares rose on Tuesday, snapping two consecutive days of falls as sovereign debt fears waned after Greece received funds from the European Union to repay its immediate debt. Banks featured among the best performers with Banco Santander (SAN.MC), BNP Paribas (BNPP.PA), UBS (UBSN.VX) and Societe Generale (SOGN.PA) up 2.1 percent to 6.1 percent. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 .FTEU3 index of top shares closed up 1.34 percent at 1,026.64 points, but was still down 1.8 percent for the year. Greece received a 14.5 billion euro ($18 billion) loan from the European Union on Tuesday to repay its immediate debt.

Greece loans are split in three years, so sad that the money is to repay debt and screw the citizens.

Corruption at its highest.

No the welfare state that the government create for them, just like the welfare state that US is creating with HCR and expanded Medicaid, wait when it hit you in the pocket starting in 2014.

If you are not in the top ten in the nation you will pay just like the rest of us tax payers.

Stocks Set for Gains


The outlook on Wall Street today seems to indicate gains for the American investment market. In some part investors are looking away from the ongoing woes in Europe and ahead to corporate earnings. This is a telltale sign of what is wrong with the gambling-finance industry in the United States. Sound economic indicators, like run-away debt, are overlooked for corporate earnings and retail data that give zero indication of economic well-being.

A perfect example of corporate earnings meeting consumerism is Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is the largest company on earth, and it is also the largest retailer. According to Reuters, Wal-Mart posted quarterly results that beat forecasts and helped the company continue to profit through the ongoing American recession.

According to Bloomberg News, another thing pushing investment is an increase in American housing starts. New home construction rose to an annual rate of 672,000 in April, the highest rate since October 2008.

More and more I believe that the US rats created the economic crash to prop the dollar, short the Euro and to push corporate profits with luring investors into trusting America again.

GBM I basically put a trailing stop of 1 SPX pt. It is actually pretty rare for the markets to not move at LEAST 1 pt in your direction when the EMAs cross with a strong steep cross, especially at the beginning or end of the trading day. What you are describing sounds very interesting though, do you use ninja trader? What parameters do you use? Like which technical indicators, or volume, or price action?

Corporations don't like strong dollars. Well at least American ones don't. Bernanke doesn't want a strong dollar either. However if commodities increase even if the dollar increases then there will still be inflation not to mention medical costs, school costs, etc. keep going up which is INFLATION not DEFLATION.
