Morning Links: EU Deal Edition

6:40AM – Europe has reached a deal. Greek bondholders will take a 50% haircut. The EFSF will be levered 4-5x, bringing its value to $1.4 trillion. We better hope that Italy doesn’t start to crack because $1.4 trillion isn’t going to get much done there. If anything, this deal buys the EU a bit of time until the next leg of the crisis hits. Risk is back on via the mother of all short squeezes, Germany is up over 4%, France is up 4.7%. S&P futures are higher by nearly 2%. Best of luck out there (especially if you’re short), and on with the links…
