    Market looking tired? Look at all the positive news we have had today: 1) Tentative Greek deal 2) Good jobless claims 3) Apple up 4 percent 4) Mortgage bank settlement 5) Bank of England continues to pump money into their economy. And the market is doing nothing.

  • The Parthenon in Greece

    Greek union leaders are not part of the Greek political coalition. Another 48-hour strike called for tomorrow and Friday. We still do not know exactly what Greek political leaders have agreed to.

    The euro bounced, stocks rallied shortly after 8 a.m. ET on word that Greek political leaders had reached an agreement on the terms of the bailout package. They have reached an agreement — but is it just among themselves? Is it the deal the “troika” wanted?

    Good news! Eurozone finance ministers have been summoned to Brussels Thursday to discuss the Greek debt deal. The only thing missing: a Greek debt deal.

  • Big problem for ECB: Irish finance minister says if ECB offers discount on Greek bonds, that will strengthen Ireland's effort for concessions. This is Draghi's worst nightmare: one comes knocking, and they all come knocking.

    By 11am ET, it had traded 3 million shares, 166 percent of its initial offer of 1.8 million shares. That means many shares have already been bought and sold several times in the first half hour of trading.

  • European Central Bank

    The incredible shrinking Greek politicians: all three Greek political parties have reportedly received the document laying out the terms of the bailout. The leaders are supposed to meet today...but the meetings have been postponed. Several times. In a single day. Still no agreement on proposed 25 percent cuts in private-sector wages, cuts in supplementary pensions, and the extent of closure of state controlled organizations.

    Another day of high drama in Greece, with an uncertain outlook. Global banks like Macquarie and UBS are warning that business prospects are poor for 2012. And yet, the major U.S. indices are again near multiyear highs.

  • Greek Parliament

    The leaders of Greece's three main political parties are meeting with Prime Minister Lucas Papademos this morning — if they can get into the building. A 24-hour strike has shut down all government services. Everything. Even the museum workers are on strike. Opposition leader Antonis Samaras has already said he opposes any further austerity measures. Surprise: He is the leader in opinion polls to win the elections scheduled for April.

  • A European Union, left, and a Hungarian national flag, fly outside the Magyar Nemzeti Bank, Hungary's central bank, in Budapest.

    Austerity watchers take note: the Prime Minister of Romania resigned today, the latest European leader felled by anti-austerity fury. Romania was the receiver of a 20-billion euro loan in 2009, on condition of deep austerity cuts.
