    Hi oysters - Thanks so much for your comment too! You raise some very good points here, particularly the one about Putin and Russia. They have the potential to become meaningfully disruptive to the euro experiment depending on how events play out and the moves that Russia makes in response are all worth watching in the days and weeks ahead.

    Hi DH51 - Great point. If the problem starts to move to Portugal, or if Italy or Spain start to get pulled down, then this is where a once orderly process can turn really ugly, really fast. And if it heads to France, then all bets are off.

    Hi Obi-Wan - I share your yearning for more market volatility. Any semblance of a return to normal would be a most welcome development. And you make some great points on Puerto Rico as well.

    Hello jpz11 - Excellent point. I have actually decided to break Puerto Rico out into its own article that I hope to post in the coming days. I mentioned it in the article and considered including it in the broader discussion, but I thought it warranted its own article. So thanks for raising it here, as it is just as big of a topic if not bigger.

    Hi Moon - Thanks as always for your great comments. While I enjoy reading them all, this one was particularly good. Really excellent points that felt good from a frustration about ongoing policy standpoint to read. Thanks again.

    Hi Due - These are all excellent additions to the fear list for the second half of 2015. And others could be added too. Dodecahedrophobia perhaps?

    Hi Calculus - I would agree that a 90% decline is a bear market no matter how long it lasts. It is notable that while the Greece stock exchange was closed today that Global X FTSE Greece 20 ETF (GREK) was still trading today and was down nearly -20% today alone. Should be interesting once they reopen markets in Greece. Of course, it will all depend on how things play out. Thanks again.

  • What To Do As Greece Crosses The Rubicon [View article]
    Hi Belton - I like a spirited exchange in a comment section as much as anybody, but did you actually read the article or just skim it? The theme of the article is that investors should NOT be inclined to sell right now and that Greece is NOT Lehman Brothers. These points don't seem to fall into the perpetuating fear category from my view. Disagree?

    In adding to the Greece discussion, a worthwhile read from Barry Bannister at Stifel via David Kotok at Cumberland Advisors.

    As of 12:25PM EST, the S&P 500 Index has arrived at its 150-day moving average at 2078.60. Given that this has repeatedly been reliable support over the past few years, it will be interesting to see if we see a bounce around these levels. Staying tuned.

    Hi Alan - Thanks so much for your excellent commentary as always. I hope you are doing well and always look forward reading your perspectives. And I completely agree that this ongoing post crisis grand monetary experiment will ultimately end badly. It is only a question of when at this point in my opinion. But I do believe that the higher this market flies, the harder it will ultimately fall. Fortunately, the marketplace now more than ever provides a wide array of tools with good liquidity to position for such an outcome when the timing starts to come together.

    Great points as always. Thanks again Alan and I look forward to talking again soon.
