Why are the markets doing good when the news from Europe Greece crisis are getting worst by the hour.


Greece faces moment of truth


Following the latest delay in the handing out of the country’s sixth EU-IMF bailout tranche, speculation about a drastic haircut of Greek debt have intensified in Brussels and Berlin, increasing uncertainty in world markets about an impending twin-pronged default.

I worked for the BoE for a while some years ago and to be honest had considerable respect for the guys there, now I am not sure if that respect was misplaced.

I really have to wonder what they are thinking as all evidence seems to clearly point to this approach not working, and yet with fingers in ears and blinkers on they still seem poised to hit the print button, and if the article is correct the EU, UK and US will hit the button at the same moment.

My initial response was "oh crap" and still is..

And how much of the profits will stay in America?

I noticed the American AAV7A1 is on the list of items they want.. and yet, although they are made by an American the company it is in turn owned by BAE systems..

It gets to the point I get dizzy trying to track this money merry-go-round

The question is why selling tanks to a nation that is in edge of a possible military coup the way things are right now with the austerity,
(but they just bought 400 tanks) and a possible bankruptcy.

Makes no sense.

Somebody will be profiting from death and chaos.

That happens when you decide to become educated and aware of what goes on around you, if you just do like many Americans and live in lala land then your days will be just fantastic, with your pink colored glasses and drinking koolaid.

I like to have something crawling on my back all the time so I am a masochist I guess.

I think this might actually be the last (manipulated) Rally before it all comes crashing down,probably by Friday...there is only one Solution that could stop it now: More Money Printing

Regardless of what the markets are actually doing, I just wish I had ten bucks for everytime I saw headlines that said on one day Investors rally the market on hopes of a European bailout and were followed by Investor sell-off on fears that there will be no European bailout

I'd be friggin' RICH, I tell ya.

Reality is, nobody has a damn clue what is going to happen so investors are amusing themselves by collectively and fiscally fellating each other and living off the avails of their ethical prostitution, leaving the market going up and down faster and more often than a sailor's bum on shore leave.

What a schmozzle.
