Bloomberg: U.S. Stocks Trim Drop Following Report of Greek Austerity Deal

Bloomberg:

By Michael P. Regan
     June 23 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. stocks pared losses following a
report that Greece had reached an agreement with the European
Union and International Monetary Fund regarding a five-year
austerity plan.
     The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index slipped 0.9 percent to
1,275.08 at 3:06 p.m. in New York after tumbling as much as 1.9
percent earlier. The Dow Jones Indutrial Average fell 131.35
points, or 1.1 percent, to 11,978.32. Reuters reported that the
Greek government had reached the agreement with the IMF and EU,
citing sources.     
     “So yes the market is rallying on only a headline and not
a full story,” said Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller
Tabak & Co. in New York, in a note to clients. “There is
already an austerity plan that the Greek parliament is voting on
next week so the only thing that could be different is if the
terms have been changed to make it easier for the Greek
government to pass. Again, it’s just a headline that doesn’t
fully make sense since a plan is already being voted on next
week.”

Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as “bad luck.”
