the obvious connection between "blow ups in europe" and "the euro."

and now "they happen inversely."  before "the euro would surge" and "a country would blow up" thus "causing the euro to fall (mission accomplished...???)"  it seems "great for the center" save for the fact that "the center is getting wobbly now" thus causing the "euro to weaken AND the blow ups to occur."  I imagine "this isn't the Plan for Success for the Center."  I imagine "the plan is blow up your worthless country while ours remains unscathed."  (Insert evil "ha, ha!")  the fact is "markets concern themselves with reality"--and with trillions in currencies "sloshing around" market participants have for decades been "buying protection in the form of ETF's." The "chickens have now come home to roost."  Of course "the only news here is that markets rise on the all too real demise of entire Continents" save i imagine "for the markets in said Continent."  And I do include North America as "a target."

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

Additional disclosure: right now even a "corn standard" is looking too expensive to back all the world's worthless currencies. still...the vichyssoise seems doable--and is delicious to boot. perhaps a "leeks" standard?
