Last weekend it was the Italian referendum and this week its Italy’s 3rd biggest bank Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena S.p.A which is in big trouble. I have read that the ECB has refused to extend the deadline for them to raise the 5 billion euro which places it in a problematic situation as “it’s Too Big to Fail”. Will this have an impact on European and world markets, as this is only 1 of many banks in a similar situation?

Australian Market (XJO) and US Markets (S&P 500 & DJIA) Commentary - Since when was it bad to have volatility?
Have you noticed that there is no middle ground anymore? It’s all one way or the other. A case in point is the way in which the general media report what goes on in the markets locally and from overseas. It’s either the best performance for the year and the market can do no wrong as it moves higher on the day or its Armageddon...
