“The top stocks in the SP500 are equal in weight of the bottom 250.” -Carter Worth
On 7/8/2016 the SP500 closed at 2,129.72 and on Friday it closed at 2,133.29. On 7/8/16 Eight of the nine S&P sectors were above their respective 50-day moving average, today only two are above.
XLK and XLE are the only two S&P sectors above their 50-day, if you believe in relative strength then those are the two sectors to focus on. The weakest of the bunch have been XLP, XLV, and XLU, these are the ones to look at if you believe in mean reversion.
