Everyone expects this weekend to end in “failure” with no agreement having been reached between EU leaders on solving the crisis.But, for now, nobody minds.

Germany markets are up 0.7%. Italy is up 1.5%.

In the US, futures are up a tad.

It’s conceivable that risk assets are getting some modest lift from the latest news about the Fed maybe doing some kind of QE3-like program, but who knows?
