THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - October 24, 2011

President Obama embarks on 3-day western state swing, with visits to Nevada, California and Colorado and is supposed to talk on housing and other economic issues. This is evidently what the Keynesians are working Bernanke on as well behind the scenes.   Putting in more policies to slow gravity will be interesting to observe.   As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 19 points or -1.47% downside to 1220 and 0.06% upside to 1239.

CURRENCIES                                                        

EURO – With the ECB backing off being a big part of the bazooka, I don’t think the media gets what that means – markets do; the Euro is backing off my TAIL zone of resistance 1.39-1.40 and every single market in Europe (stocks) has failed at my TREND lines of resistance again – Greece and Cyprus are crashing again, down -4.9% and -6.9% on the day, respectively.

ASIAN MARKETS

CHINA – the flash PMI print came in at 51.1 which means Asia could stop going down for the day; context: last week, Asian equity markets were down -1.2% week/week on a median basis.   Losses were led by China (-4.7%) and Thailand (-4.1%), as both struggled with heightening domestic risks. The Hang Seng closed back > its TRADE line of 18,344 on a +4.1% move.
