So global markets considered the Greek event with a one day sell off. Slight correction and all is well again.
China is no longer in correction mode with the Shanghai index gaining more than 5% overnight.
The euro strengthened overnight as well against dollar and Puerto Rico’s $72 billion debt bill will be serviced for the time being despite what the Commonwealth’s governor said.
Welcome to the post-Lehman Bros. trading world, where central bankers buy and sell stocks, bonds, futures, currencies and commodities to shore up a troubled market.
The terms investor confidence and investor sentiment no longer are valid reasons to buy the market during or soon after a crisis, because the sentiment maybe just the Federal Reserve, the ECB, the World Bank and/or the IMF shoring up a teetering market.

One thing is sure, investor confidence and investor sentiment still applies on the way down as investors charge for the door.
