THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - daily commodity view





EURO – when our only line of remaining support (TRADE line support of $1.37) snapped yesterday, oh did they snap! Not only is this risk cleanly defined by The Correlation Risk, but a flailing currency perpetuates economic stagflation. European Stagflation is not consensus, yet – but it will be as long as Growth goes negative y/y and these inflation readings continue to accel sequentially.

ASIA – Growth Slowing continues to be the #1 factor that US centric investors (and European gawkers) have missed all year and will continue to miss if they don’t start modeling the day-to-day risk in both the Asian high-frequency economic data and what it’s embedding itself into Asian stocks/bonds/FX prices. Hang Seng down -5.3% last night and down -21.9% since April (crashing)
