EUROPEAN MARKETS


RUSSIA – get the Dollar and the Petro price right, and you get the Petro-Dollar equities right – this is obvious in Russian stocks (next to Egypt’s -9% drop last wk, the RTSI led losers at -5% and has now eclipsed Spain on my drawdown sheet for 2012 at -27% from YTD top vs Spain and Italy at -24% and -22%).

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA  – Shanghai Composite starting to lead losers in Global Equities as #GrowthSlowing accelerates on the downside (down another -1.6% overnight; down -9.2% since beginning of May) – we highly doubt Bernanke or Geithner have a central plan for China, but you never know…

 

INDIA – Keynesian economic disasters tend to end with currency debauchery, then local crisis – India’s Rupee is in the middle of one of those and it’s a huge problem domestically as inflation is priced in local FX; but do not worry, India is now saying they are unveiling a “dozen steps to save the Rupee” – almost like a Tony Robbins thing I guess…
