EUROPEAN STOCKS FALL ... This morning's weak employment report is having a negative impact on global stock markets. European stocks are down 3%. Chart 1 shows the German DAXto be the weakest of the three after having achieved a feeble rally over the last month. Chart 2 shows the French CAC Index failing at 3300 resistance. Chart 3 shows the London Times Index (FTSE) falling back below its mid-August peak at 5377. All three charts strongly suggest that the short-term rally in Europe has probably ended.




Have a great Labor Day weekend!
