Sector Spotlight: Bearish Engulfing Candle for S&P


On this edition of StockCharts TV's Sector Spotlight, I start the month by evaluating the monthly charts for asset classes and sectors. Despite the weak ending of the month in September, three sectors managed to squeeze out a new all-time-high. However, none of them were able to hold on to these record levels as, for the first time in many months, there was not a single sector closing at a new closing high. The bond market has put in a new lower high on the monthly chart and looks poised to head lower. The Industrials sector broke below its previous low on the monthly chart, which signals the start of a downtrend on this time frame. And the S&P 500 recorded a bearish engulfing candle on the monthly chart, which usually does not bode well for the near future.
