CURRENCIES


EURO – we re-shorted the Euro right at our immediate-term TRADE line of 1.23 resistance (vs USD) on Friday; the Euro backed off that line hard, and copper/gold just went red too. Will Bernanke go Qe3 at SPX 1385? Doubt it, and so do Euro/Gold/Copper; stay tuned though – this man’s ideology trumps most things I can reconcile in my head.

EUROPEAN MARKETS


SPAIN – instead of -33% from the March high (Thursday morning pre Draghi), the IBEX is now -25%, hooray; economic growth however continues to surprise on the downside (Spain GDP miss again at -1% y/y for Q2) and the central plan continues to do more of what is slowing growth (debt). Watching Spain’s intermediate-term TREND line of 6872 very closely.

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – evidently the Chinese agree with me on that; the Shanghai Comp couldn’t care less about what American and/or European is getting their latest 48hr Viagra squeeze, trading down another -0.9% to fresh YTD lows (China down -14.2% since May as food/energy prices ripping on central planning will only slow Asian consumption growth further).
