Stock Index
The SX5E found support at 2900; we anticipate a 2900-3100 range.


The SXXE found support at 290; we anticipate a 290-330 range.


The DAX found support at 8400; we anticipate a 8,400-9,000 range.

Index Breadth
Our Europe (SXXE) P&F Bull Trend breadth indicator remains oversold with next support at 20%.

Our Euro STOXX 50 Weekly Climax indicator shows a very large number of sell climaxes (a strong bullish signal).

Sector Bulls & Bears
The Health (SXDE) sector corrected to support at 660 and maintains its relative uptrend.

The Autos (SXAE) sector finds medium term price and relative support.


The SCYC/SDEFN (European Cyclical / Defensive ratio) is oversold and finds the bottom of its range.

Stock Action
The end of the recent down move in Europe has signalled a rotation from defensives to cyclicals (as highlighted in sector chart above). We have taken profits in short positions that find support and opened long positions in stocks that found uptrends and have become overextended into support.

We closed selected longs this past week, Svenska Handelsbanken (-5.37%) and Nordea Bank (-5.08%), and reversed our long position in Unilever (-0.93%); we target 27.5 and place our stop at 31.

We opened long positions in Commerzbank (target 12.5, stop 10) and in Maersk B (target 14,000, stop 11,750).

We also opened long positions in Novo Nordisk B (target 280, stop 240), BMW (target 90 stop 73) and Den Dankse Bank (target 165, stop 139).

We opened a long position in PostNL (target 3.8, stop 3).

We closed and took profits in selected short positions: Tenaris (11.72%), Swedish Match (8.63%), Seadrill (30.96%), Enel (6.59%) and Vinci (12.07%).

We opened short positions in Siemens (target 75, stop 91) and Swiss Re (target 58, stop 76).
