THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - July 12, 2011

 

If there's going to be a capitulation day this week, this should be it.  Alternatively, if Global Equity markets and European CDS don't arrest these abrupt moves soon, world markets are going to have a big problem. As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 39 points or -1.70% downside to 1297 and 0.64% upside to 1328.
