COMMODITY/GROWTH EXPECTATION (HEADLINES FROM BLOOMBERG)

 

OIL  - both WTIC and Brent act horribly ahead of what is supposed to be another Bernanke Bailout tomorrow; consensus better watch what they are begging for here as Dr Copper also disagrees (down -0.4% this morning and still in a Bearish Formation); Gold has had a good move front-running Fed expectations, but now bumps up against a wall of resistance at $1642.

EUROPEAN MARKETS


GERMANY – just an outright nasty ZEW (German expectations rpt) this morning at -16.9 for June (vs +10.8 in May) tells you all you need to know about #GrowthSlowing (at an accelerating rate) in one of the few remaining countries that didn’t have a big growth problem. Sold our German Bunds on green yesterday as growth tends to trump all other risk management factors at the turns.
