Germany and France play Lucy to the Market’s Charlie Brown

Casino Royale (2006 film)

Up to Le Chiffre's tricks?

Maybe someone should check the holding of France and Germany — or folks connected to the governments of France and Germany.

The market seems to have some big movements lately cycling on the news of who might bail out Greece.

One day:  We’ll bail out Greece.

A few days later:  Maybe not.

A week later:  Okay, we’ll bail them out.

A few days later:  No.

Each time, the market seems to move 2% – 4% one way or the other, enough to make some good profits with the right up and down positions.  Maybe they learned something watching Casino Royale.
