CURRENCIES


EURO – euro $1.27 is ugly, but also immediate-term TRADE oversold; get the EUR/USD right, you get a lot of things big beta right; so today’s currency signal, like our bond signal, says buy stocks that can deliver on the numbers (yes, there are far fewer of those today than 2 months ago). Top 3 Ideas from here: IGT, SBUX, FDX (long).

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – unfortunately, for team “China has bottomed”, China is not the reason for us being more bullish than we have in 2 months this morn – everything has a time and price, but Chinese stocks were down for the 5th consecutive day and remain in a Bearish Formation as China refuses to deliver the Western hope for stimuli.
