EUROPEAN MARKETS


SPAIN – stocks and bonds are just a mess; after failing at TREND line resistance last week, the IBEX leads losers this morning, -1.6%, remaining solidly in crash mode at -25% from its YTD high. Central planners cannot change growth slowing; instead, more debt schemes perpetuate it.

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – growth slowing in China is evidently not yet fully priced in; the Shanghai Comp got crushed again last night -2.4% and the Hang Seng was down -1.9% after failing at intermediate-term TREND resistance (20,091). Chinese inflation (CPI) hit a 29mth low in June (that’s good, but it all came pre the +9% rip in Commodities into 1st wk of July).
