Futures Propped Up By Greek Optimism. Stocks to Watch: KOG, AVID, S, CEDC, RENN, AMZN, VMED

In the long-running Greek saga it seems we are back to optimism today. Investors are hopeful that Greece will strike a deal over its debt today. This would give the country access to the second round of bailout funds. Dow futures are up 21 points to 12,852. The Nasdaq 100 futures are adding 4.25 points, and the S&P 500 is rounding out the positive moves, up one point to 1,345.

The Greek Prime Minister is schedule to meet with coalition leaders on Wednesday. It is hoped that this will clear the way for passage of new measures to secure bailout funds. Without the bailout funds, Greece is almost certainly heading for default in March. The ECB gave ground earlier, agreeing to swap its Greek holding s for less than face value.

At this point, market moves are being dictated by Greece. Any deal should continue the market rally in the short-term. A default would increase the worry about contagion. Of course the bailout does create a sense of moral hazard, because there are other countries that will be in line to get bailed out next. See Portugal.

Prospects for a Greek bailout and a temporary resolution to the crisis is sending both the Asian and European markets higher.
