EUROPEAN MARKETS

ITALY Geithner/Lagarde forgot to tell the Italians they’re going to get bailed out; MIB Index hammered for the wk to-date, adding to losses this morning (don’t forget Italy is also in crash mode, down -24% since March 19th) and economic stagflation continues to be a reality of a centrally planned life. Not 1 European stock market has recovered 1 of our immediate term TRADE lines on this no volume bounce.

ASIAN MARKETS

JAPAN – Japan is suspiciously out of the news (other than in Japan or for those that are risk managing it) but Japanese stocks led losers again last night, down another 1%, inching closer to their own fiscal cliff and a market crash zone (Nikkei -17% since March). The IMF now has an opinion on the Japanese Yen’s “valuation” (not kidding) and has joined Krugman in telling the Japanese to print/stimulate. Won’t end well.
