Options expiration day. Global markets are mixed, futures down fractionally, as the Greek Prime Minister said restructuring of the debt was not going to happen (no one seems to believe him). This is not a bad start, considering earnings season has not started with a bang.
Futures are weaker, the Greek stock market is down 2.2 percent this morning as many seem to believe that some kind of restructuring of Greek and possibly Portugese debt is inevitable. There is talk that rather than an outright default this would entail simply extending the maturity of the debt. But since this would clearly violate the terms of the contract, it would be hard to not call that a default.
JPMorgan kicked off a good, not great, earnings report season for banks...but traders have been selling banks mid-morning because there is no loan growth outside of the commercial area and no revenue growth...what the banks really need is stable economic growth to drive revenues.
Plenty of trading tax proposals have been floated around by politicians, but how effective would they really be?
GM's blowout report today just gave a big boost to quarterly estimates.
Two key sectors are driving consumer spending to new heights.
Solid results are giving investors plenty of hope for earnings right out of the gate so far in Q2.
