GOLD – Hilsenrath got some Gold and Oil bulls lathered up with some Qe rumoring, but the US Dollar and TREND levels in both Gold/Oil are saying Bernanke disappoints #BailoutBulls again.

EUROPEAN MARKETS


SPAIN – both the IBEX and MIB indexes are now slicing through their May closing lows; they are both crashing (so is Russia, Brazil, etc), but Spain’s is the nastiest, down -33% since March. How’s that short selling ban going?

THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - six

 


ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – they’re not going to cut rates w/ food/oil prices up here; at least, that’s what the Shanghai Comp thinks, trading down another -0.5% overnight to fresh YTD lows (down -13.7% since May when growth really started slowing faster).
