THE HEDGEYE DAILY OUTLOOK

 

TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - November 22, 2011

 

OVERSOLD is as oversold does. Yesterday’s SP500 immediate-term TRADE oversold line = 1187 and this morning’s math gets me 1186, so that’s the zone.  Problem with that so far is that a 10-14 point bounce can’t get us back above 1203 (TREND line resistance).  As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 22 points or -0.59% downside to 1186 and 1.26% upside to 1208.

COMMODITY/GROWTH EXPECTATION (HEADLINES FROM BLOOMBERG)

 

GOLD – We are long and wrong Gold here and do not like it having broke its intermediate-term TREND line of $1722/oz. Gold selling off like this has a lot more to do with liquidations in the hedge fund business than anything else. Performance is not good out there.

ASIAN MARKETS

 

ASIA – better than bad is the best way to describe how Asian stocks traded after the European and US selloff.  Again, immediate-term TRADE ranges are what they are – they always get overbought/oversold. India finally arrested its recent decline, +0.75%.
