The market continues to wait on the news of the next Greek bailout. Each day that something “might” happen, the market grinds higher. When that “something” falls flat, the market goes flat again. After an early slide this morning, the market received the headlines below from Bloomberg and resumed its pathetic, no volume, and zero volatility churn higher.
There was a “final” deadline LAST Friday; then another “final-final” deadline Sunday evening; then another on Monday; then (today) Wednesday there was the “final-final-final” deadline; and now there is another: Thursday is the latest “now-we-mean-it-for-realz” deadline, before the latest ridiculous summit where Eurocrats will convene to steal more national sovereignty on behalf of the banking mafia.
Will this newest deadline be met? Would it matter if they didn’t meet it?

But no worries folks – the genius Eurocrats of the Troika exclaimed that Greece will actually believes Greece will “return to growth” in 2013. Yup, in less than 11 months Greece will be on its way to stellar GDP growth. Give me a break.
Trade well and follow the trend, not the so-called “experts.”
