- Equities: European equity markets shook off opening lows to move into positive territory as the Czech Rep, Netherlands, Italy and Austria all moved out of technical recessions with positive Q3 GPD prints. Equities took cheer from the formation of Europe's third largest airline with the finalization of an agonizingly long dance between British Airways [BAY.UK] and Iberia [IBLA.SP] coming to a close. Positive earnings momentum from Vivendi [VIV.FR], KBC Groep [KBC.BE] and luxury retailer CIE Financiere Richemont [
CFR.SZ] supported this positive momentum. Oil and gas names continued their multi-day underperformance following bearish 2010 commentary from oil service firm Technip [TEC.FR] following its Q3 earnings. Disappointing financial sector earnings from Dexia [DEXB.BE] in the premarket and Natixis [KN.FR] in yesterday's post market added weight to that sector. Other underperforming sectors included healthcare and basic resources/miners, specifically on the FTSE100 where Thursday's losses were extended. Into 5:00EST European equity markets are clearly looking forward to US data, including Sept trade balance and University of Michigan figures. Trading volumes for the session are down sharply from moving averages with the DAX off by approx 60%.

CNY should be not resisted. The IMF noted that the US growth had resumed earlier than expected but that the US economic recovery remained sluggish. The IMF did not expect the US to fall victim to a double dip recession. Overall, the IMF expects 2010 to be year of gradual global economic recovery. On the currency front, the IMF noted that the recent USD decline was within normal ranges but noted the dollar was resilient during the global crisis. Most Asian currencies were undervalued and that the currency reserves accumulation process was an insurance policy, although not a cheap policy ||Bundesbank's Zeitler commented in the German press that 2010 would be tough for banks as effects of recession now arriving on balance sheets.

He also noted that the Gov't could cut a few trillion from ¥95T initial budget requests for the next fiscal year budget. || ECB's Sramko reiterated view that ECB interest rates of 1.0% were appropriate and would help increase economic stabilization. He did note it was premature to be worried about inflationary expectations. Commodity prices remained an inflation risk but expectations were currently anchored. He expressed optimism that the economy had begun to bottom out, but cautioned that uncertainties remain. Risks to future developments were no longer just on the downside and might be a moderate Employment recovery in 2010

- In Currencies: Comments from that IMF that a revaluation of CNY should be not resisted prompted amid persistent speculation that
China could revalue its currency over the weekend, particularly with President Obama visiting the region.

- Fixed income: Euro-zone sovereign debt spreads remain relatively steady against bunds following a plethora of Q3 preliminary GDP readings from the continent. The data has provided markets with a nice insight into the divergent paths of European economies as the crisis recedes.
Germany is ultimately leading the way out of the crisis, registering its second successive quarter of growth, and a sequential increase. France also had a second quarter of growth, but the somewhat disappointing 0.3% read was in line with the prior quarter. Austrian and dutch yield spreads are narrower versus Bunds after they resumed growth in Q3. Of the club med nations, Portugal and Greece managed growth in Q3 while Spain and Greece remain mired in recession.
