THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - May 31, 2011


When the top news story after a long weekend (and on the day of month end markups) is Greece being set free from the shackles of a free market pricing in default, you know this gargantuan Fiat Fool experiment is running long in the tooth.  Obviously, USD down, Euro up, on a sloppy news item like this puts The Correlation Risk right back on the table for June. That’s the TREND.  As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 17 points or -0.61% downside to 1323 and 0.67% upside to 1340.
