10 year Greek debt is now trading at a whopping 772 bp over 10 year Bunds. It will be nearly impossible for the Greek government to roll over their debt in private markets or access short-term financing for their day-to-day operations, if spreads continue to widen. Unfortunately this story did not get enough play today.

The U.S. economy was front and center. Bernanke reminded us he and his team can continue to drop money out of the FED's helicopter if needed. Kansas City President Hoening was the lone dissenter today.

I took some profits on my SPX puts early in the session today. Tomorrow I'm looking to go long Nat Gas for part of the session. Crude is in play too.

By the way, All Kobe does is win! Good luck trading tomorrow!
