This chart list attempts to identify the current phase of the business cycle by comparing the relative performance of ETFs representing defined sectors of the economy to the S&P 500. Once the Business Cycle Phase has been determined, various ETFs are identified that might be expected to out-perform in the current cycle. Rotating your stock portfolio from sector to sector based on business cycle principals is one way to improve performance.
