CURRENCIES

EURO – get the EUR/USD pair right and you’ll get mostly everything else right – that’s glaringly obvious right now in our correlation risk model. I covered the short EUR position at TRADE line support of 1.36 yest and will look to re-short 1.39-1.40 TAIL resistance after the ECB doesn’t cut as much as hoped tomorrow. Bernanke debauchery day for the USD side of the trade will be in full effect for today too.

EUROPEAN MARKETS

Inclusive of a generational squeeze, remember Germany's DAX and France's CAC are down -22% and -26%, respectively from their YTD highs

EUROPE: major breakdowns in the DAX and CAC not recovered this morn; after this last lift in the Euro; European stocks to resume crash

FRANCE – not only did the CAC40 fail at my TREND line of 3401 resistance in the last week, but now it has moved right back into a Bearish Formation (bearish TRADE, TREND, and TAIL) – given that French banks and their super sovereign rating all need to be downgraded further, this makes sense; don’t forget the CAC is still crashing (down -26% from its YTD high inclusive of the squeeze)

ASIAN MARKETS

ASIA: stealth move continues in China with stocks up +1.4% on the A-shares and up 7 of the last 8 days; Japan not good.

Australia September building approvals (13.6%) m/m vs cons (4.5%).
