Japan will provide a Chinese-style monthly “data dump” today but now that Fukushima and its fallout are no longer news, the world has gone back to largely ignoring the Japanese economy.

Tonight in the US sees personal income and spending, consumer sentiment and the Chicago PMI, but once again all eyes will be on Spain.

Spain has organised a line of credit from the troika worth E100m to be used as capital injections to rescue Spanish banks laden down with worthless mortgages. Tonight's results of stress tests on bank balance sheets will determine just what net level of funds they need. Consensus suggests E40-60bn but more sceptical commentators believe the whole E100bn will be up for grabs.

Clearly the lower the number, the more positive for global markets. This line of credit is a loan that will only increase Spain's debt at a time the government is risking political demise with budget cuts. It differs from a bail-out which is more of a straight hand-out in exchange for budgetary discipline. 

Moving into next week, Monday is the first of the month and that means global manufacturing PMI day, with all of Australia, China, the eurozone, UK and US reporting. These releases will be followed up by a round of service sector PMIs on Wednesday.

Our archive tells no lies. FNArena warned its readers well before the price of crude oil peaked in 2008 the speculator bubble would deflate with devastating consequences for those holding oil company shares. In August we warned the most severe correction in modern history was forthcoming for natural resources. In 2007 we warned the problem with US subprime mortgages would prove much bigger than experts and media were anticipating (among other things).
