Breaking: Greece

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Greece has re-entered a bear market. Its stock market, after seven months of exuberance has dropped 20% in the last month. Greek government bonds are also in trouble as the no-brainer trade is now at three-month lows (with its price also down 20% from just a week ago). It would seem that 60% youth unemploymet may actually mean something once again...

Who cares? Greek bond holders have locked in a 7% return for the next 10 years. Value investors are planning to hold to maturity, so the price doesn't matter. Seriously, where else can you get yields like this? Do people still not see the advantage of owning long-term peripheral debt?

Of course Bitcon looks good. All ponzi schemes look good, so long as you're not the unfortunate one still holding when it comes tumbling down.

I hope you've loaded your portfolio with it MDB.  That'll be some payoff for you in 10 years when they mature and you get your principal back.

Oh yes, lucky MDB. And I can't wait to see of what kind of paper those 7% yields will be made of two years from now!

Yes, about the only thing that makes me more angry about having to pay less for PMs is when I go to fill up my car and see that the price of gas has dropped.  Although if I go to the grocery store and an item I want to buy is on sale, that pisses me off quite a bit as well.

all bullish.  Dropping orders, slower economy, possible bank collapse, no employment, unable to issue debt ...

Imagine if this happened in the US - the SP500 would be at 2k.  It would be so wildly bullish that I do not think the market could stop itself.

Greece fell into the black hole a while ago, what you currently see is an illusion crafted by the ECB. By letting Cyprus go under, Greece will implode shortly. I suspect they might hang on through the Orthodox Easter May 5. After that, boom!

Looks like another country that embraced the Krugman fallacy.

Who would have thought that the total destruction of the economy could be so good for a country's stock market.

What was it, a 110% rise in seven months? I guess rich Greeks are just like the rich everywhere else. They don't like to lose their money and will pay off anyone they need to in order to get their money back. Or was it not the Greeks but the same 1000 people who control all the world's markets who wanted their money back?

I bet the 60% of the youth are happy the stock market doubled in seven months. Are Greek newspapers and TV telling everyone that they missed out on a new bull market and this 20% dip is the buying opportunity of a lifetime? Or is that just an American phenomenon of emracing full retard?

''I say no wealth is worth my life! Not all they claim
was stored in the depths of Troy, that city built on riches,
in the old days of peace before the sons of Achaea came-
not all the gold held fast in the Archer's rocky vaults,
in Phoebus Apollo's house on Pytho's sheer cliffs!
Cattle and fat sheep can all be had for the raiding,
tripods all for the trading, and tawny-headed stallions.
But a man's life breath cannot come back again-
no raiders in force, no trading brings it back,
once it slips through a man's clenched teeth.
Mother tells me,
the immortal goddess Thetis with her glistening feet,
that two fates bear me on to the day of death.
If I hold out here and I lay siege to Troy,
my journey home is gone, but my glory never dies.
If I voyage back to the fatherland I love,
my pride, my glory dies...
true, but the life that's left me will be long,
the stroke of death will not come on me quickly.”

Homer, The Iliad

The global push after Obama's re-election last November has run out of gas.

 

Even the morning drop and bounce on the SP500 and Dow is losing its "predictability.

 

MSM should have fun with this - after all the fucking euphoria they have been pushing.
