THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - June 13, 2011

Roll out the bearish on growth consensus – it’s career risk management time for the bulls and time to get the perma-bears back in the media (Roubini top story on Bloomberg this morn calling it the “Perfect Storm” – and Barrons Mid-Year Roundtable is actually funny when you read what their consensus was (side by side) 6 months ago).

Consensus, however, can remain a constant until its fully priced in:

  1. ASIAN EQUITIES: no bid this morning, with Japan down another -0.7% to -7.6% YTD on a nasty machinery order print (-3.3%)
  2. EUROPEAN EQUITIES: no bid as Greek stocks and bonds continue to crash (Athex Index down -27% since mid-Feb)
  3. COMMODITIES: no bid for Copper in particular (down -0.8% this morn) as base metals (nickel smoked) and silver (I guess that “industrial demand” component are seeing Growth Slowing getting priced in.

As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 43 points or -1.26% downside to 1255 and 2.13% upside to 1298.
