Bullish Percent indexes show the percentage of stocks in a given group that have a "Buy Signal" on their P&F chart.  Above are charts with the 11 different sector-based Bullish Percent Indexes that we calculate here at StockCharts.com (with the S&P 500 BPI thrown in for good measure).

All of the BPIs started moving higher at the start of the month however some appear to be running out of steam right now.  Financial stocks are leading right now with Energy stocks close behind.  Smart investors always know where these Bullish Percent Indexes are going - they are some of the best market sentiment indexes available anywhere.
