EUROPEAN MARKETS


SPAIN – what is the #PoliticalClass getting greased w/ bailout funds on the side, amongst friends? Most Read headline on Bloomberg this morn is about Spanish (Rajoy) and Italian corruption; it’s like watching Lincoln. All the while both the IBEX and MIB indexes has abruptly snapped my TRADE lines of support, looking nothing like Germany.

ASIAN MARKETS


JAPAN – old Taro Aso was at it again overnight, jawboning the Yen to new lows, breaking the 93 level (en route to 100, then 120) as the Nikkei’s crash (to the upside) moves to +30% since November 13th – seems normal. I couldn’t make this up if I tried but last night Aso said “we can only learn from history”.
