S&P Below 1,250 Could Mean Correction: Arbeter

Tuesday, 12 Jul 2011 | 1:13 PM ET

Mark Arbeter, chief technical strategist for Standard & Poor's, told CNBC Tuesday a move below 1,250 on the S&P 500 would be dangerous because it would raise the potential for a serious correction.

"That would be a negative sign for stocks," he said, and that is why he is neutral on U.S. equities right now.
