THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - July 18, 2011

 

Ugly morning! Asia wasn't the problem either (China up 2x vs the SP500 from the June low). The problem remains the Fiat Fools and their impact on markets (shortening economic cycles and amplifying market volatility).  As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 30 points or -1.45% downside to 1297 and 0.83% upside to 1327.
