It could have been a perfect day for rally after China rate cut but the failure of meeting between four parties called upon by Greece President to form new government and rejection of Merkel's Austerity by public poll in Germany lead to broad sell off. Tonight there is lot of economic data is coming out especially GDP's of France, Italy, Germany and whole Euro zone and ECB is printing money which should cause stock market rally through their fine tuning operation. http://www.ecb.int/mopo/implement/omo/html/index.en.html Last Tuesday eventhough ECB printed money, but Greece and France election results caused sell off instead of rally.
Also, Greece needs to make 436 million in payment and it would default, if they are not making payment. There is no government in Greece, so the decision to make the payment is little messy. If Greece doesnt make payment it would get 7 days extension to make payment but this would be embarrasing for European countries if Greece is not able to make payment. Meanwhile, VIX has jumped to 21.87 at the close but it is still in Contango, it requires another 10% jump to change into backwardation.
Based on the chart, Dow, S&P500 are still in bearish zone and ideally it should sell off or atleast open lower but a huge leg up from futures could change it into Bullish. Tomorrow ECB is printing money, this will have big impact on futures and tomorrow market is expected to open higher. But there are too many things which could easily change direction of this market. If Germany, France, Italy, and Euro zone GDP shows recession, and Greece default on their payment this market could drop over 300 point tomorrow. But its other way round also, if the GDP is better then expected, Greece makes payment with ECB printing money, this market could be set for huge rally after 8 day of sell off.
