Another day, another Greek deadline: Today, the Greeks have to: 1) Produce written commitments from the two main party leaders that they plan to stick to the austerity program after Greek elections in April; and 2) detail how it will cut an extra 325 million euros ($428 million) euro zone finance ministers insist be cut before the second bailout money — 130 billion euros, or $171 billion — is released.
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 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?
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.
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.
From stocks to politics, here's why today's rally may have been triggered by multiple factors.
Traders have been staring at their hands for weeks as stocks have been drifting lower since hitting historic highs.
If you want a microcosm of the problem with banking, you should look at what the big regional banks are saying.
Spring is here and the IPO floodgates have finally opened.
