"Greece" once again dominated the news in the financial markets. Last week, things were already volatile. Nasdaq popped to a new all-time high on Monday and SPX tested 2130 again. But, as talks between Greece and its creditors dragged on, markets pulled back. Selling picked up some speed as we headed into the weekend. But, still, stocks held up pretty well on Friday.

We traded well last week and my Ecstatic Plays Portfolio is at a new all-time high. The portfolio is up +28.21% in the past 90 days and +37.87% for 2015! Here are the closed trades for the week:

Tonight, global financial markets are tumbling as Greece imposes capital controls and closes banks! At the time of this writing, Asian markets were down big, although China almost came all the way back to even momentarily!

For the week, the Dow was down 69.27 points; SPX slid 8.5 points; Nasdaq lost 36.49 points. Gold pulled back again to below $1180/ounce, while oil was little changed. Here are how US markets looked after Friday's close:
