The Morning Morsel-Greece is Back and SPY Goes For 15 in a Row


Germany has told Greece to pound salt again and suggested they go to the IMF for support. Yes, I said this would happen weeks ago, Germany doesn’t act alone as originally telegraphed by the Euro Pollyanna’s and really could care less if they even exist. As a result the Euro is sliding and the greenback is higher by default this morning.

Oil is starting to hum and $$88 looks like the next technical target for my money.

The finanials (XLF) finally caught that breakout through the $15.75 zone as the ETF has been on fire.

FDX just reported earnings at .76 cents VS. consensus of about .73.

This has become a buy the dip market so chase here at our own peril.

Have a great day.
