U.S. markets have gone on a long weekend to celebrate their Independence Day, while the rest of the world grapples with a Greek dilemma. These markets will return to more fireworks next week when Greek referendum results will be out and the Fed’s meeting minutes will come mid-week.
However, today U.S. stock futures are open for trading and are trading down with European markets. Early trends from the Greek referendum about accepting international bailout and its strict terms have started coming in and these results are showing very thin majority in favor of a “yes” vote.
So the uncertainty remains, and like the last weekend, this one will also keep European leaders and financial decision makers quite busy.
Traders from U.S. markets can enjoy real fireworks this weekend, and be ready for some stock-markets boom and crash next week!
Till then, good luck and have fun.
