A market recap of the past few weeks set to the tune of “12 days of Christmas”

On the twelfth day of  trading,
the markets gave to me: 

Twelve lobbyists bumming,
Zynga IPO a hyping , Italian interest rates-a-leaping,
Nine bulls a dancing, High frequency traders-a-milking,

Black Swans-maybe-swimming, six banks-laying off,

Gold bulls feeling a  stinging, a government solar company that is a turd,
Three French bank loans, two turtle trading entries,
And short covering by bears quick-ly.
