  • The Meaning Of No: Initial Thoughts [View article]
    Since Greece is so small as i read in most articles, WHY would this effect our markets?

    Very good question since most say it shouldn't have any effect on the US markets.

    I am in agreement that it will eventually lead to trouble, but why?

    Think outside the box !

    Greece is a mess, has been a mess, but what message would be sent if the EU bails them out. Think Italy would like that?

    I think a line then forms asking for free handouts. Make no mistake, they will be free. NEVER to be paid back !!

    I made the mistake going long on the markets in my trading account. I am still putting together some things to add in my "buy and hold" portfolio.

    I am sure i will eventually get a bounce and sell my long position. Just not sure how quick it will be.

    It isn't so simple. If it was this would not have been an issue for close to 6 years now..

    @BUBBA

    "In a very short time, I think the Greek people who voted NO will learn that they made a very big mistake. That they were lied to over and over again."

    I have stated all along we won't see any rate increase this year and until i see one i won't believe it..

    The FED is just looking for an excuse not to raise it. They got it now !

    I agree Greece is in a mess right now. Inflation will run rampant. But then why does our markets care about it ?

    Hope i am wrong. But i think Greece is just the tip of the iceberg.

    DC made the point they're so small. So what's the problem then?

    You think this is good news? Yup, you are right. I have been saying for a few years now that trouble lies ahead.

    I still believe it. But i really don't care if it's a few years or a little longer. I am not comfortable in the markets right now. It is obvious that most investors agree as the DOW and the S&P are flat right now for 2016.

    In a year historically that is an UP year , the third in the POTUS term. Feel comfortable buying the dip then do so.

    People really need to think outside the box here..

    Were in uncharted waters, and ON ONE knows what will happen next. Is this the canary some have been fearing ? What's behind the curtain that we don't know about ?

    Some "can kicking" will try to be established, some agreements and discussions were not privy to are going on as we speak. Now it comes down to smoke and mirrors folks..

    The gullible will swallow it hook, line , and sinker! But i have just left a few comments on other articles where some posters with such nice looking bios GUESSED wrong on the vote.. Has a 50/50 chance and got it wrong.

    Please be careful , think what you will be told, and consider dropping in on my blog for a daily discussion on all events... Trying to wake up the sheeple who get comfort from actually believing what authors want you to believe.

    Again, were in uncharted waters and NO ONE knows what lies ahead. Including myself. But at least i am going to follow the future events with my eyes and mind open.

    Good luck investing, and i appreciate reading the authors thoughts... Was a NO vote anticipated ? Funny but most of what i read was that a YES vote was a foregone conclusion..

    Uncharted waters fellow investors. Are you prepared for it ? Check out my blog if you would like to contribute any comments. Of course all Authors are welcomed and i even include those in the blog's description..

    Check us out, as were different from the mainstream that you read daily!

    DOOM AND GLOOM MONDAY !!!

    Thanks C !!

    Monday should be really interesting. I just commented on a couple of articles where some guessed the vote would be YES !!

    Now let's see what a NO vote opens up. Kinda funny reading others articles and seeing how many people really believe what the authors wrote. One guy , who i posted directly to, has a great bio being such a stock expert.

    BUT posted how a YES vote was a foregone conclusion.. The others were essentially thanking him so that they could get a good nights sleep.

    Glad ALL that post here at least aren't gullible. We all might not agree but it's nice to see an intelligent conversation with respect.

    Truth be told ...WERE ALL GUESSING AS NO ONE KNOWS THE FUTURE !! But it is nice to see people making a case for their opinions...

    Some of these other articles and comments that follow are a pure waste of time. Keep up the good work and i hope i entertained those on line with a part of my life's story this weekend..

    SO BRING ON THE DOOM AND GLOOM !!!!! Starting at (midnight of course).

    Sorry DC for chatting about your topic but with no kids in the house i kinda thought you might not be on line tonight:)

    Nope

    DOOM AND GLOOM MONDAY is fitting for what's going on in the markets..

    I could care less if it was meant for WSB grumps..

    I think we will have plenty to talk about with Greece being the canary. Some might think this is nothing.

    I am in the camp we have more trouble coming down the line !!

    Now sit back and wait for the spin. Greece is meaningless, such a small Country, etc..

    Sorry, this is going to lead to more issues . Mark my words!!

    People need to think outside the box, or they will get slaughtered..

    Bingo.. We are in uncharted waters and anyone who "thinks" they know the result are insulting your intelligence..

    I really can't believe how many people get comfort from reading what people guess ...
