European Macro Outlook

Given that breadth maintains its bearish divergence and encounters resistance levels against the market, we anticipate a consolidation from here. We also look to overweight mega-caps which have a stromger trend profile than the broader market.


Stock Index

The Euro Stoxx 50 Index (SX5E) broke up resistance at 3,225, but now trades into a resistance zone between 3,290 and 3,325.


The Euro Stoxx 600 Index (SXXP) re-tests major resistance at 350.

Index Breadth

Our Europe (SXXE) P&F Bull Trend Breadth Indicator rallies from oversold but remains in a large bearish divergence to the index.


Our Europe (SXXE) % 30 Week MA Breadth Indicator rallies sharply from oversold, but now becomes overbought whilst testing strong resistance at 60%.


Our Europe (SXXE) % 10 Week MA Breadth Indicator becomes overbought into resistance at 80%.

Sector Bulls & Bears

The Banks (SX7E) Index approaches major resistance at 160 but maintains long term price and relative base patterns.

The Food & Beverages (SX3E) Index broke above price resistance at 480.

The Healthcare (SXDE) Index further extends to new highs whilst confirming its break above relative resistance.

The Chemicals (SX4E) Index is into (potential top formation) resistance whilst failing to rally on relative.

The Construction (SXOE) Index is into (potential top formation) resistance whilst just starting to break medium term relative support.

Stock Action

We kept our long positions unchanged this week.

We closed short positions in Ryanair and ABB flat as they began to rally and Bayer and Merck as they reached their respective stoplosses.

We moved to a net short position in the Autos Sector as we opened shorts in Fiat and Michelin (1st Sep). However, the sector has reversed out into further resistance at 475.

We opened a short position in Seadrill as it deveops price and relative tops. (5th Sep)

We opened a short position in Vinci as it reasserted its price and relative downtrends on bearish VAD with a new relative low. (5th Sep)

We also opened a short position in Swedish Match as it develops top formations and fails at relative resistance. (5th Sep)

Finally, we opened a short position in DSM as it forms a short term price top and tests its recent relative lows. (8th Sep)
