Dear CIGAs, Forget about Greece, they didn’t matter yesterday as the NYSE shut down for nearly four hours.  Greece does matter and certainly will matter in the weeks to come.  Before getting to yesterday’s very peculiar "glitch", I do want to mention something quite humorous about Greece.  Ambrose Evans-Pritchard wrote yesterday the referendum actually backfired! … Read more »
