    • 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%.

    • The ECB earlier kept policy on hold, leaving central bank stimulus fans looking to Mario Draghi's post-meeting press conference for assurance the central bank was standing by to cut rates further and/or boost its QE program.
    • While Draghi trotted out his usual line about using "any means necessary," to prop up the economy, he's keeping his powder dry for now. Among things not discussed at the ECB meeting, he says, was helicopter money or buying stocks.
    • He also pushed back against the perception that negative rates are a negative for the banks. Stop using low rates as "justification for everything that goes wrong with banks today," he argues. Low rates help the economy, which ultimately helps bank balance sheets.
    • Flat ahead of the press conference, the Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) is now lower by 0.9%, while the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) adds to gains, now up 0.75% to $1.1322.
    • U.S. futures were flat to up most of the morning, but turned lower during the press conference. The S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) has opened down 0.25%.

    • The opening statement from Mario Draghi contains his usual material - that the ECB will monitor developments and will provide accommodative policy with all available instruments, as necessary.
    • Economists at the ECB lift their 2016 GDP growth forecast to 1.7% from 1.6%, but cut 2017 to 1.6% from 1.7%. 2018 is seen at 1.6%.
    • The euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) remains higher by 0.6% to $1.1303, and European stocks (NYSEARCA:FEZ) marginally lower.

    • European stock funds have now experienced outflows every week for more than six months, according to EPFR Global, beating the previous 27-week run set during the financial crisis. It translates into $86B of outflows this year vs. $123B of inflows recorded in 2015.
    • Scorecard: The Stoxx 600 is lower by 6.1% YTD vs. a 6.2% advance for the S&P 500. Particularly troublesome, the Euro Stoxx Banks Index is down 25% this year vs. about no change for the ((U.S.)) KBW Bank Index .
    • Brexit, trouble in Italy, and lame economic conditions across the Continent make for convenient excuses to sell, but hey, the ECB last year launched and this year doubled down on its QE program.
    • "Monetary easing is no longer enough,” says Deutsche. “The scope for structural upside for European equities on the back of a further central-bank-sponsored reduction in fixed-income spreads is limited.”

    • 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%.

    • Investors pulled more than $6.4B from the 10 largest U.S.-listed Europe ETFs in the two months ended July 30, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence, bringing AUM at the 10 to $41.9B.

    • Brexit fears make an easy culprit, but the Stoxx 50 today is higher than it was prior to the late June vote (and roughly flat on the year).
    • Among those losing money is the $11.7B Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (NYSEARCA:VGK), which saw outflows of $1.5B during the two months, and $2.6B YTD. Nearly $1.4B in June and July and $5B YTD exited the $8.7B iShares MSCI Eurozone ETF (BATS:EZU).
    • Faring worst though, is the $9.8B WisdomTree Europe Hedged Equity Fund (NYSEARCA:HEDJ), with outflows of nearly $6.3B YTD as the euro has refused to weaken (it's actually stronger vs. the dollar this year).
    • As for returns HEDJ is actually in positive territory this year, up 1.7%. The other two funds have suffered minor losses.

    • 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%.

    • Noting the "encouraging resilience" with which markets have handled the Brexit news, Mario Draghi says the ECB will be in better position to assess the fallout in coming months.
    • Live blog
    • While expecting the eurozone economy to continue to move forward at a moderate pace, risks remain to the downside, in part thanks to the Brexit.
    • Asked about the unrelenting bear market in the stock prices of the EU's banks, Draghi says it's "of some significance" to policy makers because it raises the lenders' cost of capital, meaning lending becomes less profitable, meaning less lending. As for bank solvency, he's not too concerned, saying they're in much better shape than they were headed into the financial crisis.
    • The euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) has bounced around a bit, but is currently back to flat on the session at $1.1017. The Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) initially dipped hard as Draghi began his press conference, but has returned to a loss of just 0.3%.

    • As expected, the ECB left rates unchanged today - the main refinancing rate at 0%, the marginal lending facility at 0.25%, and the deposit rate at -0.40%. QE will continue to run at €80B monthly until at least March 2017.
    • The Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) is lower by 0.35%, and the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) flat at $1.1022.
    • The main event awaits - Mario Draghi's press conference begins in five minutes.

    • There's at least a temporary pause in the global rally after terrorists strike again in France. Europe's Stoxx 50 (NYSEARCA:FEZ) is lower by 0.55%. France's CAC-40 (NYSEARCA:EWQ) is down 0.8%. U.S. stock index futures are down marginally.
    • Asia climbed overnight, led by the Nikkei's 0.7% advance.
    • The 10-year Treasury yield is flat at 1.54%, and gold/oil are little-changed.
    • Up later this morning are June's CPI and retail sales reports.
