TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - June 6, 2011


There isn’t a data point or market price across the Hedgeye Global Macro risk management model that suggests this correction is over, yet:

  1. Treasury Bonds – continuing higher this morning w/ 2-yr yields crashing to 0.42% (10s at 2.99%); yield curve compressing
  2. Asian/European Stocks – Japan + Spain (2 of our short positions) down -1.2% and -0.9% this morning (Keynesianism not working)
  3. US Stocks – down for 5 consecutive weeks, which isn’t exactly textbook bull market (down -4.6% since April 29th high)

As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 24 points or -0.32% downside to 1296 and 1.53% upside to 1320.
