THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - June 15, 2011

 

What's interesting about yesterday’s low-volume rally to lower-highs is that neither the volume nor the volatility signals confirmed anything but the same.  The Hedgeye S&P 500 Sector Risk Management Model continues to flash bullish on 0 of 9 Sectors.  As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 49 points or -2.01% downside to 1261 and 1.80% upside to 1311.
