THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - September 29, 2011

With the Hedgeye 1182 TRADE line of support becoming resistance (again) for the S&P500, We have very little appetite to take on month-end markup or EuroPig rumor risk. Don’t forget that the average drawdown in the S&P500 in the first 6 days of the new month since April = -4.5%.

As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 64 points or -3.31% downside to 1113 and 1.73% upside to 1171.

SECTOR AND GLOBAL PERFORMANCE

We moved to 2/9 sectors positive on TRADE and 1/9 on TREND.  XLU remains the only sector positive on both durations.

CREDIT/ECONOMIC MARKET LOOK:

Another one of the super secret surprises that the gods of Chaos Theory have imposed on Monsieur Bernank’s lap = rising rates at the short-end of the US Treasury curve with a brand new TRADE line breakout above the Hedgeye 0.20% line for 2-year yields. Long-end of the curve (yields) remain broken across durations, but rising real-rates on the short-end is not good for Gold (on the margin)

CURRENCIES

EUROPEAN MARKETS

EUROPE: hope reigns into the Bundestag vote with Germany hanging tough above my immediate-term TRADE line of support (5439 DAX)

  • Eurozone Sep Economic Sentiment 95.0 vs consensus 96.0 and prior revised 98.4 from 98.3
  • Eurozone Sep Consumer Sentiment (19.1) vs consensus (18.9) and prior (16.5)
  • Eurozone Sep Business Climate (0.06) vs consensus (0.11) and prior revised 0.06 from 0.07

DAX – bullish TRADE, bearish TREND setup continues to hold up for the Germans in the immediate-term as my 5348 TRADE line of support continues to hold. The refreshed range (immediate-term) for DAX = 5, so the squeezage from here is defined at +2% left on the upside.  Rock solid unemployment report of 6.9% in Germany this morn for September (vs 7.0% AUG) notwithstanding.
