THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 5

 

CURRENCIES


USD – 1st up week in 3 for the USD last week punished Commodity prices, and we liked it. Oil in particular is back into a Bearish Formation after snapping TRADE support of $109.63 Brent; TREND in USD is higher, not lower (up for 8 of last 11 weeks), so we’ll see if getting a cliff deal strengthens it further – not clear on that yet either way.

 

THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 6

 

EUROPEAN MARKETS


ITALY – Monti probably took a peek at down -2.4% y/y Q3 GDP growth and said we’re out! So is whoever bought last week’s lower-highs in Italian equities; MIB index down hard (-3.4%) moving back below 15,615 TRADE support and back into a Bearish Formation – risk happens fast.


THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK - 7

 

ASIAN MARKETS


CHINA – Chinese stocks moved out of crash mode putting on a +4.1% move last week and saw +1.1% follow through this morning back about my TRADE line of 2039 support (Shanghai); that was bullish, and so was NOV Industrial Production growth (10.1% vs 9.6% in OCT) and Retail Sales (+14.9% vs 14.5%); CPI rose to 2% from 1.7% only neg news.
