THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - October 11, 2011

Levels matter and ASIA looks more bearish in the majors (HK, Nikkei, KOSPI, etc) than Germany, France, and Italy do right now – that’s telling you something about Global Growth that is ringing in the -1.1% and -2.7% selloffs in oil/copper this morning that should be respected. Every stock market in Asia and every major commodity has failed at TRADE resistance. 

As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 31 points or -2.23% downside to 1167 and 0.26% upside to 1198

CREDIT/ECONOMIC MARKET LOOK:

From KM - US TREASURIES: very interesting action on the short end of the curve continues to develop w/ 2-year yields having broken out above my TRADE line of 0.21% and now testing my TREND line up at 0.30%. I expect short-term yields to back off here, but the short end of the curve should continue to pressure the Gold price (which failed again at $1678 TREND resistance)
