    "Markets off lows on reports of Greek deal" CNBC 48 minutes ago. Do you believe it?

  • ECB, Monetarism And A Greek Half Decade [View article]
    The first Greek comedies were mainly satirical and mocked men in power for their vanity and foolishness. Not much changes in Greece but the international community downplays it so that the world's financial clothes are not stripped off.
    I would think Greek regime change is a possible co-goal. That goal is perhaps a target of opportunity.

  • Greek Options And Default Contagion Mapping [View article]
    The tables and charts, particularly the first one tell it all. Greece has a 200+ year history of fiscal malfeasance and subterfuge and all paths lead inexorably to the next crisis terminal node. The ancient Greeks first comedies were mainly satirical and mocked men in power for their vanity and foolishness. It appears that not much changes in Greece.

  • Why Greece Is A Big Fat Slow White Swan [View article]
    Good cryptic argument. If this is a black swan it has been swimming across a much too placid lake for some time and plenty visible to any bird watchers.

  • Hypermind Prediction: Nearly 50% Probability Of Grexit In 2015 [View article]
    Too complacent. I say greater than 50% as the Greeks just don't get it.

  • My Greece Strategy [View article]
    HYI. I like your enthusiasm but the market is binary just now. This is not yet a correction so I am waiting for a more significant pullback of at lease 10%, and then will re-evaluate.

  • Greece: What's Next? [View article]
    What's next? Puerto Rico, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, China, who knows. This I do know, the world is drowning in debt, much of which can never be paid back and the best that can be hoped for by creditors is timely debt service. Inflation is the goal to devalue the debt. Most of these countries are being kept alive by central banks, troikas, IMF and other permutations of the alphabet. Caveat emptor.

  • Partying Like It Is 2007 [View article]
    While last week was a better time to get flat and hedge there is still time. FFor the next 7-10 days things can go either way and fast.

  • The End Game Or A New Beginning For Greece? We Have Seen All This Before [View article]
    “It’s not a question to see what might happen on Monday. In terms of a crisis (for Greece), the crisis has commenced,” Irish Finance Minister Michael Noonan said after the day’s second meeting. It will be a very volatile week or couple of weeks ahead.

  • The End Game Or A New Beginning For Greece? We Have Seen All This Before [View article]
    Greece has spent 90 of the past 192 years in financial crisis. You make your own conclusion about the root cause of Greek financial ruin gaming.

  • Oklahoma Earthquakes: Is There A Liability And What Companies Are Impacted? [View article]
    Regulators, as most, cannot distinguish between statistical correlation and cause and effect. Maybe there are earthquakes in Oklahoma because too many people from California are moving there....who knows.

  • The View From Punch Bowl Mountain [View article]
    Lots of 2% punch needs to be guzzled at great velocity to get the buzz. All the monetary base increase from QE is not multiplying through the economy as the velocity of money (rate of punch imbibing) is low and thus national income and or prices remain low. Until money starts to move through the economy with its multiplier effect the punch bowl will remain full.

    Franklin has Appalachian Trail Day on April 1st of each year where through hikers are recognized, treated, feted and fed. C'mon down and we can do Winding Stair to Siler Bald, to Wayah Bald, and on to the NOC. Happy trails to you.
    Watching Greece for signs of whether another rise ahead, fall off a cliff, or just meander.

  • The View From Punch Bowl Mountain [View article]
    I own mountain land that is no more than a few hundred yards from the AT at a trail head called Winding Stair Gap, N.C. Can you think of a market metaphor fort that? Loved reading it and there is investing there.
    Happy hiking and investing.
