The Sector MarketCarpet shows serious selling pressure in the consumer discretionary (cyclical), energy and technology sectors on Thursday because they are the deepest red. In contrast, the utilities sector is bright green because utility stocks advanced as money sought yield. The consumer staples sector also attracted some buying interest because it is a defensive sector and the opposite of the consumer discretionary sector. The first chart shows the broad sector view because the arrow at the top is pointing down. Click this arrow to move up or down a level in the MarketCarpet.
