Retail SPDR Hits Channel Trend Line

 | 



The Retail SPDR (XRT) has been one of the strongest industry group ETFs this year with a 25+ percent advance. Even though the ETF is looking overextended as it hits the upper trend line of a rising channel, it is by no means weak. Notice that XRT has traded in the upper half of this channel for most of 2013. Also notice that CCI has been positive since the first week of January. Any weakness would be considered a correction within the bigger uptrend. Broken resistance turns first support in the 84-85 area and January support is set in the 75-76 area.
