Here's analysis via Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough in a note sent to subscribers earlier this morning: 


"At $1.47 GBP/USD, from an FX market @Hedgeye immediate-term TRADE signal perspective, a Remain vote is priced in. Copper – the Doctor appears to be heading for the exits ahead of the crowd on that; Copper #Deflation resumes with a -1% decline back to $2.07/lb this morning; WTI down -0.9% as Oil Volatility remains around 40."


CHART OF THE DAY: Sell On The News Anyone?

Editor's Note: Below is a brief excerpt and chart from today's Early Look written by Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough. Click here to learn more.


"... As the vote to Remain ramped, so have these bets. Going back to the week prior, the net SHORT position in GBP/USD hit its YTD high at -2.39x on a 1-year z-score.


And now, my immediate-term risk range process is implying that the asymmetry (in Pound terms) is to the downside with an immediate-term GBP/USD risk management range of $1.40-1.47.


Sell on the news anyone?"

Buying European Banks? Good Luck With That

Editor's Note: Hedgeye Financials analyst Jonathan Casteleyn was on The Macro Show this morning discussing Brexit, European equities and a number of his high-conviction long and short calls. Below is an abridged transcript from today's episode in which Casteleyn explains why investors in European equities should "avoid the whole region."


Buying European Banks? Good Luck With That - europe geography


“This is what I think we should be talking about in Europe. The region is actually really unappealing as you can see in this time series of European bank stocks [see below].


Out of the 2008-2009 Financial Crisis, you saw a slight rebound in the banking sector but there’s been no recovery.

Essentially, the banks are dis-incentivized to make loans because they can’t do it profitably.

Remember, this chart has nothing to do with Brexit and is proof that the financial sector is not a place to invest. Since credit is the lifeblood of the economy, the pull forward of consumption, Europe is in massive distress.


We just want to avoid the whole region.”
