Sector Spotlight: Offense Pulling Away While SPY Improves


On this edition of StockCharts TV's Sector Spotlight, I dive into the current state of sector rotation and highlight the relationship between the Consumer Discretionary and Consumer Staples sectors, as Discretionary is trying to pull away after a period of indecisiveness. The XLP:XLY ratio is breaking out of its year-long range, suggesting that the market is looking for more offense. On top of that, the S&P 500 index looks to be executing a falling wedge on its daily chart, which is a bullish event. After this look at current markets, I pick four questions from the mailbag that all center around the same theme of the relationship between RRG, the RRG-Lines (the indicators) and the raw relative strength.

Sector Spotlight airs weekly on Tuesdays at 10:30-11:00am ET. Past episodes can be found here.

I also recently hosted the Friday, October 15 edition of StockCharts TV's Your Daily Five. I zoomed in on companies in the financial sector, focusing on Banks and Investment Services stocks, highlighting the fact that, despite seemingly positive results that are generally beating analysts' estimates, the street is showing mixed responses for individual stocks.
