The Lord is my light and my salvation;With the VIX soaring and the US equity markets seeing their first 2% correction in many moons, the capping on the precious metals was determined and obvious.
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the center and refuge of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid?
So much for 'Greek capitulation.'
I think Syriza realized they were being presented an untenable solution, the 'generous offer' of extend and pretend by Merkel and the Eurocrats, with the IMF playing heavy.
This bailing out of private creditors while extracting a pound of flesh from the Greek people, facilitated by corporate friendly governments, was exactly how Greece came into this situation in the first place.
I thought fomenting a bank closure on Greece by the EU was a bit tough, and probably senseless. Showing them the lash to get them to fall to heel and all that.
Most economic commentators in the US are completely clueless about money these days, and global economics as well.
More surprises will therefore be coming I am sure.
Have a pleasant evening.
