Futures Break 1,160 On Euro Freefall
At last check the ES was just at 1,160 after briefly dropping lower. The primary factor for the market drop is the complete panic that is gripping Europe. And here we were one month ago with supposedly intelligent people saying get Greece off the front-page because it is now "boring" news. When Greece restructures its debt in a few weeks, the euro hits parity, European banks are forced to recognize $150 billion in GGB losses, Portugal, Spain and Italy CDS are all at 400, major re/insurance companies are facing liquidity crunches, our insistence on keeping Greece front and center may prove to have been the correct one after all.
