  • JP Morgan Chase headquarters

    Risk management is still no science. Is it not ironic that JP Morgan Chase announced a $2 billion hedging loss in the chief investment office, which is designed to hedge risk for the entire organization. There may be more. They re-hedged synthetic credit exposure (credit default swaps?) designed to hedge its corporate credit risk. Not a successful strategy. It isn't working.

  • Who's paying what to Greece and when are they paying it? I have received numerous requests to explain the payment schedule of the 172.6 billion euro Greek bailout package. That is $34.4 billion remaining from the first bailout, and $138.2 billion from the second.

  • Greece

    Will the Troika make a scheduled 5.2 billion euro payment to Greece tomorrow (Thursday)? There are conflicting reports out about this, though it has already been scheduled to be paid. Eurozone officials have reportedly scheduled a conference call to discuss.

  • The Parthenon in Greece

    It's time for Europe to say to Greece: you can't have it both ways.

  • World in Hand

    The problem is too much debt in the world. How do you reduce debt? You consume less and produce more. But it's almost impossible to reduce debt in an economic downturn: the austerity creates a spiral downward.

  • The Greek national flag is seen flying above the parliament building on Syntagma Square in Athens, Greece, on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012.

    Excessive debt is creating a slower global economy and deflationary issues.

  • Broker watching market decline

    Flight to quality day: The U.S. market, when it opens on a down day, will usually stabilize after 10am ET. That didn't happen today, it just kept dropping, which encourages more shorts.

  • Left Coalition Party Leader, Alexis Tsipras

    Alexis Tsipras, the head of the Left Coalition party in Greece, has just been handed a mandate to form a government and he's entering global politics with a bang. He's declared the bailout deal dead — and he's likely right.

  • View over the caldera of Santorini in Greece.

    That didn’t take long: New Democracy, the conservative party, has already given up on forming a coalition; they have now passed the torch to Syriza (the Left coalition), which won the second largest number of votes. The chances they will form a coalition is small as well.

  • NYSE Trader

    The market has had a bid all night. European banks in particular are now in the green. Well, that didn't take long. Yesterday, at about 5 p.m. ET, traders were predicting an ugly down day. Not happening.
