"Unfortunately, post the Brexit vote, the world is going to have to keep reporting economic and profit cycle data," Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough writes in a note sent to subscribers this morning. And unfortunately for Bulls that data has been continually poor.

Here's additional analysis from McCullough:

"EUROPE – seeing the weakest countries in European Equity markets get a jumpstart on selling this am with Italy leading losers -0.8%, taking its stock market crash to -28% from last year’s cycle high (Portugal -0.6%, Spain -0.4% both remain in crash mode too w/ European #GrowthSlowing no matter what the vote)"

 

Take a look at Italian stocks...

Italian equity markets continue to price-in reality, namely that the ECB's best efforts can't stanch the bleeding in Europe.
