    • The Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZshed 0.6% today, bringing its weekly loss to just under 4%. Nervousness ahead of next week's U.S. election makes for as good of an excuse as any, but there was also this week's U.K. court ruling which threatens to delay Brexit.
    • One might think a delay (possibly ultimately leading to a postponement) would be good for Europe, but an argument could also be made it just adds to the uncertainty.
    • Among individual bourses, Germany (NYSEARCA:EWGfell 4%, Spain (NYSEARCA:EWP) fell 4.5%, Italy (NYSEARCA:EWIfell nearly 6%.

    • Acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy will ask the Spanish Parliament to back him for a second term today, as he seeks to end an eight-month political impasse.
    • Rajoy has secured 170 votes in the 350-seat chamber, but with many party leaders still opposed to his candidacy, the incumbent is set for defeat unless the grandees within the Socialist Party can persuade its leader, Pedro Sanchez, to back down at the last minute.

    • European stock markets have been in quiet retreat all week, and today's 1% decline in the Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) puts that index lower by 2.7% for the week.
    • Leading to the downside today is Italy's (NYSEARCA:EWI2.3% loss, followed by Spain (NYSEARCA:EWP), down 1.4%.
    • The biggest news of note is a report suggesting the Brexit could come a lot sooner than previously thought. It's sent the pound nicely lower vs. the euro, and could be accounting for the softness in European shares (the FTSE is down just 0.2%).
    • Germany (NYSEARCA:EWG) is down 0.6%, and France (NYSEARCA:EWQ1%.

    • Germany's Commerzbank (OTCPK:CRZBYtumbled nearly 9% after warning it won't hit its profit target this year, while Italy's banks fell broadly on continued investor worries about their health.
    • Meanwhile, European exchange operator Stoxx is invoking its "fast exit" rule to kick Deutsche Bank (DB -3.6%) and Credit Suisse (CS -4.6%) out of its Stoxx 50 (FEZ -1.1%) index on August 8. Typically index changes are made just once a year, but the performance of the two has been so horrid of late (both down about 50% in 2016) that Stoxx doesn't want to wait.
    • Bloodied longs can take comfort in the fact that these sorts of things tend to happen a lot closer to the bottom than the top.
    • Italy (NYSEARCA:EWI) closed with losses of 2.8%, as did Spain (NYSEARCA:EWP). Germany (NYSEARCA:EWGlost 1.8%, as did France (NYSEARCA:EWQ).
    • The Nasdaq's 1.1% decline is leading the U.S. lower, with the S&P 500 down 0.8%, and the Dow off 0.6%.

    • The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) and DJIA (NYSEARCA:DIA) are now each higher by 1%, and Nasdaq (NASDAQ:QQQ) by 0.85%.
