Nightly Wrap Up – Europe Agrees to Disagree

If you asked a hundred traders what would be the best thing that could come out the the EU summit tomorrow – I know what wouldn’t be on it. A flash across the wires is reporting that participants have agreed to reexamine the issue in March of 2012. An EU diplomat reportedly said that the EU will reexamine the ceiling of the ESM bailout fund in March of 2012. Also treaty changes will be discussed on the same date due to the failure to garner full backing.

That translates to either the summit is one epic failure or the S&P is bluffing and won’t downgrade. I’m going with failure on this one. The sovereign debt contagion is spreading into the core and needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. But then again who knows. Maybe Merkozy can pull a trillion euros out of the hat tomorrow.

Asian markets are mostly negative due to the ongoing EU concern. China did release promising inflation numbers as their CPI dropped 1.3%. Wholesale prices saw a steeper decline. With inflationary concerns easing this gives the central Chinese bank more room for monetary easing. In the midterm this should work to form up the Asian markets thanks to falling food and commodity prices.

In the US, markets ended the day down substantially over the growing EU concern. The Dow shed nearly 200 points in trading today, while the Nasdaq gave back 53 points and the S&P finished off nearly 27.

It is increasingly obvious that the recent rally in equities is subject to a steep sell-off if the EU crisis is not resolved in such a way that the markets have faith in it.
