COMMODITY/GROWTH EXPECTATION (HEADLINES FROM BLOOMBERG)

 

COMMODITIES – evidently Bernanke’s Inflation Policy trade didn’t like a week of the Fed and Hilsenrath saying nothing thereafter; Qe rallies are getting shorter (and steeper); US Dollar having its 1st up wk in the last 7 gets you a CRB pancaked -4.4% for the wk to-date, snapping its TAIL risk line of 308.

CURRENCIES


EURO – EUR/USD bounces +0.5% on Spain bailout rumoring; that monster correlation risk FX pair is in a very important positions right now w/ TRADE support of $1.29 under attack at the same time as our long-term TAIL risk line of $1.31.54 remains a wall of resistance; a break and close below $1.29 gets me $1.26, fast – so watch that.

EUROPEAN MARKETS


SPAIN – what would the week have been if we actually went 5 full days with no central planning rumors? Spain gets the bailout begging back into the headlines, and that’s good for a European/US futures bounce; IBEX continues to make lower-highs vs March; its risk range is now 8031-8214; doing nothing in European Equities right now, waiting/watching.
