Trading the Globe: Can Europe Stem the Bailout Tide

Again Europe’s financial woes landed center stage with Street chatter suggesting Spain could be the next nation to need a bailout.

And if it comes to pass, the bailout could be massive. Spain’s economy is bigger than Portugal, Greece and Ireland put together, the three nations that have already taken bailouts.

However, don’t write off Spain just yet. On Thursday, a Spanish official insisted the nation was entirely solvent.

According to finance minister Elena Salgado the Spanish economy "is more diversified, more powerful with sound basics, and is much more competitive," than investors may realize.

Is Spain really in better shape, than we think? Or are the comments more political rhetoric than anything else?

A one-time skeptic, trader Brian Kelly now thinks Europe's headwinds are just about gone! Check out why. Watch the video now!
