Retailer SPDR Tests Breakout and Near Term Support

 | 

The Retail SPDR (XRT) is under pressure today after a miss from Best Buy (BBY) and a lackluster Retail Sales report. XRT broke trendline resistance in early December and then consolidated. This breakout is holding, but barely. Consolidation support is set at 52 and a break below this level would be bearish.
