CURRENCIES

EURO – we covered at TRADE line support (and sold the USD) on Tuesday at Euro 1.36. Now we can re-short it on the mini-squeeze back up to 1.39-1.40 (and buy the USD back). Just managing risk around a proactively predictable FX range.

Eurozone Producer Prices +5.8% y/y in SEP and set to rip higher again in OCT/NOV as policies to inflate continue

EUROPEAN MARKETS

FRANCE – there’s nothing stealth about what either the French stock or bond market continues to tell us – its explicit - France is entering a period of intermediate-term stagflation; this morning’s failure to capture TREND line resistance (3403) combined with a nasty Services PMI print of 44.6 for OCT (vs 46 in SEP) tells us all we need to know to be shorting French stocks on green.

ASIAN MARKETS

CHINA – stealth move higher in Chinese stocks continued overnight as the Shanghai Comp closed up for the 9th day out of the last 10. Heard from large constituencies in the hedge fund community that China (as in the country) was going off a cliff in early October. Hearing crickets now. Our predictive tracking algorithms have Chinese GDP growth bottoming (sequential slowdown) in Q1 of 2012.
