Buying Opportunity Tomorrow?

Patience. Things have been crummy with the market for a while now. We'll get a good flush sooner or later.

Because the market decides to be unpredictable, I'm sure it'll crash right when Greece figures out how to pay its debts and China is hitting new highs. :-p

I'm pretty skeptical of this rally on the "great" news out of Greece and China. China's rally seems to be the result of the gov't requiring massive amounts of direct stock purchases, and the Greece deal leaves the economy in complete shambles. Seems very short-sighted in both cases. What's to cheer?

Double ouch.

Quote:We don't know yet how much damage the panic inflicted, and the government isn't entirely to blame for it—the European Central Bank, by limiting emergency lending to Greek banks, helped start the chaos. But it seems certain that this whole incident has ended up sinking the country further into depression, in return for little to nothing.

Greece never had a very good hand in these negotiations. Though it's been correct on the merits regarding many issues, especially debt relief, the second German officials and their allies decided the European Union could survive a Greek default and exit from the euro, Tsipras and his far-left party Syriza lost nearly all of their leverage. But over the last couple of weeks, we've basically watched Athens go all-in on its hand, then fold at the last second. And it's been awful for the Greek people.

To me, it seems that China is basically doing a form of QE, but much less safe. However, the way I see it, when America did something similar during the stock market sliding in 1929 and it propped up the stocks for about a week before it plummeted. Let's hope the same doesn't hold true for China. As for Greece, I don't think that will be worked out for a positive outcome maybe even this decade.

Market jumps over Greece (possible) deal. What happened to "Greece doesnt matter"?

Rapid's comment about a "good flush" perked me up. I was just getting interested in doing something other than counting the dividend checks and Mr. Market snatches it away from me. Angry

How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?
