EUROPEAN MARKETS


EUROPE – shorting Spain and Italy on Friday didn’t work – both are green this morning; again, markets discount reality and these markets have been crashing for months, so be careful on the short side until we get the bounces; then study those. IBEX +1.7% this morning and the Euro actually has not moved at 1.24.

ASIAN MARKETS


ASIA – Asian stocks have been going down since Feb/Mar, so last night was more of an immediate-term capitulation more than anything else (Japan down -1.7% = down -19.1% from its March top); interesting that India almost closed flat (given that it was the 1st market to stop going up, it was the 1st to stop going down – for a day).
