    "world that already has more than $10 trillion in negatively yielding debt"

    "Brexit has been a concern in markets, he sees a less than 50 percent chance the U.K. would exit the EU. "If it does occur, because it will be long and drawn out, the markets will probably overreact and present an opportunity for people who have dry powder,""

    "S&P could trade back down to 2,050 or lower. "We could easily see 2,000, but I don't see it getting to 2,200," he said."
    S&P closed at 2037 today (06/24/16).

    U.S. Stock Futures Retreat After S&P 500 Erased 2016 Gain Friday
    U.S. Stock Futures Retreat After S&P 500 Erased 2016 Gain Friday - Bloomberg

    "Index futures on the S&P 500 Index fell 0.5 percent to 2,008.75 as of 6:18 p.m."

    "Losses last week wiped out gains in U.S. equities for the year and pushed the benchmark volatility gauge up 49 percent."

    "Still, it could’ve been worse for U.S. traders, who ended last week down 1.6 percent thanks to rallies leading up to the Brexit decision."

    "Britain’s departure will unleash as much as $300 billion of selling by automated quant programs in the already-battered U.S. stock market, Marko Kolanovic, the JPMorgan Chase & Co. derivatives strategist, wrote in a note late Friday. Equity investors in the U.S. would be wise to stay away until quant managers finish the rebalancing that was forced on them by the day’s volatility, he said."

    (Since it is the weekend

    “I used to stand amazed and watch the redbirds fight. They would flash and flutter like scraps of burning rags through a sky unbelievably blue, swirling, soaring, plummeting. On the ground they were a blur of feathers, stabbing for each other’s eyes. I have seen grown men stop what they were doing, stop pulling corn or lift their head out from under the hood of a broken-down car, to watch it. Once, when I was little, I watched one of the birds attack its own reflection in the side mirror of a truck. It hurled its body again and again against that unyielding image, until it pecked a crack in the glass, until the whole mirror was smeared with blood. It was as if the bird hated what it saw there, and discovered too late that all it was seeing was itself. I asked an old man who worked for my uncle Ed, a snuff-dipping man named Charlie Bivens, why he reckoned that bird did that. He told me it was just its nature.” –Rick Bragg, All Over But The Shoutin’

    She should have died hereafter;
    There would have been a time for such a word.
    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more: it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.
