TODAY’S S&P 500 SET-UP - November 28, 2011

Don’t forget that last week was the worst Thanksgiving week for US stocks since 1932. The S&P500 would have to close > 1203 for us to not be selling on green today.  As we look at today’s set up for the S&P 500, the range is 52 points or -1.35% downside to 1143 and 3.14% upside to 1195.

COMMODITIES – same Global Macro trade (Correlation Risk) that’s associated with the USD; what went down last week goes up this morning (with the USD down) – important immediate-term TRADE lines of resistance we are watching are Gold $1726 and Copper $3.45. If both fail there, both are shorts.

CURRENCIES


EURO – immediate-term TRADE oversold at 1.32 is as oversold does (we covered our Euro short there) – now you get the bounce back up toward a lower-high of immediate-term resistance (1.34). Take your time with this and use the USD as your front-runner to fade the Global Macro market’s beta

ASIAN MARKETS

ASIA – mini-meltup in the markets that have been going down the most (HK, India, Korea – all up +2-3% overnight) as China and Indonesia didn’t care much to rally at all (closing up 0.12% and 0.27%, respectively). Asian Growth is still slowing and all Asian markets remain in Bearish Formations (bearish on all 3 of my risk management durations)
