EUROPEAN MARKETS

ITALY – oh the drama – with bond yields only down -4bps d/d to 6.62% and Italian Equities still in full crash mode (down -33% since 2011 YTD highs, despite these fun little short squeezes “off the lows”), other than having an Italian running the ECB buying everything he can that is Italian sov debt here, what else do we need? Silvio says “look into my eyes”…

ASIAN MARKETS

JAPAN – on a huge fraud (Olympus) the Nikkei broke its only remaining line of TRADE support (8835) and sliced back down to -15.3% for the YTD; plenty “value” investors bought Japan on the “tsunami recovery” thesis – hearing crickets on that thesis now…
