We have seen the full Greek pantheon of Deus Ex Machina.

Thank Gods for polytheism!

When will this finally implode? How long can they drag this out - and really whats the point in doing so? Everyone knows the end game - except CNBC...

Sixth payment will be delayed, since IMF want to wait for "results" from EU-Summit this weekend.

"...after all such a payment is merely passthru funding which Greece hardly sees one sent of..."

Debt collapse > Social unrest > Politicians arguing 

If AD/DC's - Skies On Fire is playing in the background while rolling footage of the above images once would have quite the documentary.

Lots more earnings today - the fund management community still think corporate earnings are solid, even though some of the smart money is not bullish medium term, they see the bigger risk as not being `in` the market in case earnings are good (i.e they are already discounted as good) and in case a miracle gets pulled out of the hat by the troika.

Dr Copper aint buying it though - further weakness in the European session. FTSE has been thin and jumpy - just following the EURO/$.

Its hard work being short!

The `banks to recapitalise themselves without EFSF` story was a help - but shortlived. I think that the word on that was already out. I know Lloyds and RBS have been making enquiries on the street.

I'm am geting this "." close to throwing in the towel on this whole thing.

Im not a perma bear.  I wasn't in the market at 1,350 because I knew the US debt ceiling debate was going to be a disater.  Since, Ive been making $$ (alot actually) buying at 1,100 and selling at 1,200.  The reason for that range is that while I didn't see a double dip recession on the horizion (eg SPX EPS of $75 x 12) I also didn't see GDP growth being more then 1%-2%, so I thought $95 x 12-13 was about fair.

But that was precedented on Greece being allowed to fail, hiarcut by 50% and France and Germany recap their banks!  Looks like thats not going to happen.  So now - Europe in Recession, China slowing, US about to have another disaster via super committee.  I'm about 30% net short via SMDD (@ 22) and FAZ (@ 50) after being 100% long at SPX 1090.  Maybe time to get more short if we are going up today on this BS.

The news out of Europe feels like an alternating harmonic series.  Eventually it'll converge some day.

The farse continues, no surprise there. Greece shut down, in flames, how does "the market" ramp on shit like this??? Another shitty claims number I suspect today, maybe that will gas the markets even higher. How anyone can trade these shitty markets is beyond me, got a better chance at the casino at least there you know where you stand.

so the ecb buys old spanish bonds so those investors can reload at the auction and all is good - no direct ecb participation in an auction - fraud!

they keep it afloat at least until derivatives expire maximum in the money

u are right about the ramping, the shape of the up and down movements is not wavy at all, sawtooths and sticksaves is all u get in this fake market

Tyler, this doesn't look right.

" 10-yr yield +2bps to 3.22% vs 3.20% earlier this morning; hit 3.28% yesterday, highest since Aug. 8. 2-yr yield +3bps to 1.38% from 1.29% earlier today. "
