THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 5

 

EUROPEAN MARKETS


GERMANY – again, news headlines running w/ “Europe up on China stimulus” (even though Europe is flat and Germany is down); watch the DAX here – German industrials hurting when Chinese demand continues to slow; lower-highs in the DAX from the 7154 high established in March. To get above that would require Draghi walking on water.

THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 6

 

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – good thing pig prices collapsed in July, helping the Chinese print a completely random inflation reading in the face of slowing growth – bailout media took that as “another sign for stimulus”; China up a whopping +0.6%, India down on the day after missing industrial production growth too.
