Weekend Reads

We wish we could tell you that this week brought some resolution to the various catastrophes unfolding on the global stage. Sadly, this is not the case. The Eurozone meltdown is still in full swing, and the markets are still swinging and swaying on every whisper of a rumor that jumps over the pond. MF Global clients are still pining for their frozen funds, though, in a positive turn of events, more of them have more money in their hands than they did last week. Don’t get us wrong- we’re happy about that- but there’s still a long way to go. The big event on the horizon at this point is the Supercommittee decision stateside. On Wednesday, if they haven’t magically come up with $1.2 trillion in budget cuts, prepare for an encore of August’s political antics. Until then, we’re content to live in the moment. It’s the weekend, and here are the things you should be reading.

  • Only Germany can save the Euro? We might be in trouble (CNN)
  • Volatility may be causing problems for most, but it’s boosting the CBOE (Investors Business Daily)
  • Supercommittee failure = downgrade? Here we go again… (The Guardian)
  • Great interview with Koutoulas on the state of MF Global client affairs (Benzinga)

And just for fun…

  • C’mon, Cutler- help a guy out… (WL)
  • So you’re saying arguing with the financial media is pointless? We’re still not giving up… (YANSS Blog)

  1. The super committee has failed. This is a crime of high treason as these so called men have placed their parties positions above the financial well being of American citizens. It embarrasses that they are calling them selves Americans. I have vowed to vote against any incumbent in the upcoming elections.
