And Europe is saved again.  Italian 10 year bounces back with a vengance and DOW futures surge into positive territory.  Buy the rumor.

Wait for the blood in the streets, and then BTFD in gold and silver.

I believe the standard advice here is: Buy NFLX.

Cdad's picture

You missed that opportunity.  Shhhhh...but I traded NFLX last week from the long side...despite the fact that it is barely even a shell of a company now.  Buying Netflix today would be ill advised.

Shame the Greek army isn't publicly listed. Their shares might have gone parabolic before the days end....

The Greek Army: Do they still wear breastplates, greaves and carry a sarissa ?

You're basically saying you went long on FAS after yesterday.. whoops.

Iriestx's picture

Full Disclosure:  I'm long guns and ammo.

If that is the case, all is forgiven.

You forgot the /sarc, so you get trashed.  Some folks are just too dense to get it.  Or maybe they are still asleep (just being kind here).

I too have noticed a severe lack of sarcasm meters among the ZH audience.  Some peeps are too uptight.

Christophe2's picture

True, but some peeps are trying to have a real/serious discussion and it can be hard to change tracks in your mind...  Especially with all the trolls that abound, it can be tricky to tell the difference, as well (especially when someone replies sarcastically to a serious post).

Does anyone else get the feeling that the Greeks are playing the suckers at the NYSE/LSE for fools and dropping rumors every time they want to make an insider trade?  They won't need a bailout at this rate.

The S&P has priced in about 1000 points worth of 'EUROPE IS SAVED' over the last 12 months.  It's working pretty well.

The Finance Minister is suffering stomach pains...

"I have everything under control"

Rumor is the Minister of Silly Walks if pro-referendum, so this could get ugly.

Health Minister???????

cowdiddly's picture

Well you have to admit the patient IS terminal.

HD's picture

My words exactly.

EasterBunny's picture

haha, i thought the same. So the words of the greek health minister are going to move global markets. This is crazy


bernorange's picture

Yeah, you better listen to him if you know what's good for you.  /sarc

Does the Greek Health Minister now outrank the Prime Minister?  

Interesting setup they have there.

Ethics Gradient's picture

Probably not, however he probably knows a doctor that will declare the PM unfit for work.

JohnG's picture

Regular checkups and sanitation are paramount where they "go greek."

ZackAttack's picture

I think it must be like what happened in the US in 2008, where we learned that spending bills originate in the Treasury.  

plantigrade's picture

No but he gets to decide how the Finance Minister gets treated.

So ...

ZackAttack's picture

Health minister? I guess they've got hemlocked into a position where he has to support the bankers.

This now makes Hitler look very sane. I must go back and re-read history.

Vlad Tepid's picture

He was also prescient for being one of the few German leaders who could resist getting in bed with Greece.  Mussolini pulled him into that bed and it didn't work out too well for anyone.  When will they learn?

Sequitur's picture

Who in the F is the health minister?

JSD's picture

You know...that guy...the one that said the referendum won't happen.  Surprise! It's G-Pap!!

Me XMan's picture

Health minister? Kick that dude to the curb! What power does this Health Minister got?

JenkinsLane's picture

This shit's gonna go on all day for starters.

Too bad they don't have any oil we could invade them under the pretense of liberating the people. Maybe when we have a shortage of olives...

g's picture

ha ha ha that is great

Ted K's picture

You'll need a Dick Cheney type into secretly sodomizing Greek boys on false charges in hidden prisons---otherwise, where is the fun for Republicans????

I'm googling "pedo cam" and "Lithuania real estate" as we speak, give me a holler at 15:00hours Dog.

jesse livermoore's picture

lol.....  all they really need to do is threaten to sell there olives on the market for gold instead of dollars............... 

Vlad Tepid's picture

It's a good thing Greece doesn't have oil...
