Ask yourself a question now there's a multiple choice
‘you've only one shot, get it right’, says a distance voice
Don't get your head into a spin
If only you could see the mess you're in
The enemy is closing in see the white of his eye
He's taking in his prey in sight it's just a matter of time
May the games begin the best man win
If only you could see the mess you're in

Is it the pride in you that won’t let go
Is it the fool that won’t let it show

As the year fades into its final two weeks, it remains something of a coin-flip as to whether or not Wall Street ends the year in the red or the black.

After a nice pop last Friday and an aborted attempt to get it going again on Tuesday, stocks were down 3% for the week through Wednesday. Among the ten U.S. sector iShares, Energy (IYE) and Basic Materials (IYM) have led the market down this week. The “risk-off” movement has sent investors into the safety of the dollar and Treasuries at the expense of stocks and commodities.

Beneath the daily noise of the continuing saga know as the European Union sovereign debt crisis, there is a strong underlying tremor going on, one that might eventually shake out as a major shift in the alignment of global financial power.

When the leaders of the European Union gather in Brussels this Friday for the final EU Summit of the year, they won’t be lacking for attention.

In fact, Wall Street, the European bourses and just about everyone else on the planet with a significant stake in the global economy will be listening in to the conversation, to see if the EU’s key players finally get it right.
