THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 5A

 

CURRENCIES


EURO – we shorted the EUR/USD on Friday as intermediate-term TREND resistance of $1.31 remains overhead; immediate-term TRADE resistance was $1.28 (now support), so now we have plenty of duration mismatch in consensus positioning to risk manage a multi-duration range around.

 

THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 6A

 

EUROPEAN MARKETS


ITALY – reports an all-time low in consumer confidence of 84.8 NOV (vs 86.2 in OCT) – all-time (data set only goes back to 1996) is a long-time as we head into Christmas selling season for Europe; European stocks we’re up huge (on no volume) last wk (+4.0% on the EuroStoxx600, which just made another lower-highs vs SEP).


THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 7A

 

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – the “China has bottomed” crowd is still looking for that bottom as the Shanghai Comp re-tested her YTD lows last night, closing -0.5% (down -18.1% since the #GrowthSlowing top in March); we need to see consumption taxes (food and energy prices) continue to deflate before we buy anything China/EastAsia.
