It’s been my belief for some time now, that the eventual turn in markets will be sparked by news out of the EU. With Greece forgotten, Spain in the headlines only briefly, but now Italy getting some attention – it has become increasingly clear to me that things in the EU continue to deteriorate. The unemployment numbers out of all three of these countries are truly staggering….coupled with banking systems on the brink of collapse.
With the “fear machine” in full swing there in the Unites States – it makes even more sense to me, that risk coming out of Europe will be an easy “scape goat” for the rampid printing and spending coming out of Washington – pinning blame overseas and further justifying the cause.
As I understand it – The Unites States goes bust on March 27th (please correct me if I’m wrong) as the debt ceiling will yet again be breached – short of some type of “deal” out of Washington. This has gone past “hilarious” as even the American people are starting to figure it out. What perfect timing for a big “news flash” out of Europe – “EU Zone Threatens Recovery” or “Global Risk Appetite Wains On EU Fears”.
Regardless – all things considered we are getting much, much closer to the turn (mid March as previously suggested), and as the “media machines” start spinning their stories ( as to best keep U.S.A lookin good! ) we can add this to the growing list of things to consider.
I say – “EU Zone Catalyst and US Saves Face”
