Takeaway: European growth is still slowing. The Spanish IBEX is down -27% from its cycle high of 2015.
While not as sexy as a Brexit headline, the Spanish election is heating up (voting begins on June 26th). Investors should be weary. Polls show that left-wing parties could come close to a parliamentary majority.
Here's analysis via Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough in a note sent to subscribers this morning:
"SPAIN – Brexit is newsier, but this Spanish Election (June 26) still matters – as does European #GrowthSlowing; Spain’s IBEX -0.15% after the 1-day bear market bounce remains in crash mode -27% from #TheCycle highs of 2015."

Takeaway: Copper #Deflation resumes with a -1% decline back to $2.07/lb this morning.
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."

"... 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?"
