Another insightful issue of the ChartWachers Newsletter has arrived!

Delivering The Web's Best Financial Commentary Straight To Your Inbox

May 6, 2017

Hello Fellow ChartWatchers!

Welcome to the latest edition of ChartWatchers, the newsletter for technical analysts, online investors, StockCharts users and more. In addition to this week's articles, we have some important announcements for you!

Earlier this week, we officially launched our new Members Dashboard. As a member, this page is the heart and soul of your StockCharts account. It's the first page you see when you log in and the center of all your personalized features like ChartLists, Scans, Alerts and more. With that in mind, we've redesigned the page to be more intuitive, easier to navigate, and optimized for all screen sizes.

For example, the new-and-improved Control Center features a scrollable list of quick links to our members-only features, charting tools, market summary pages and more. We've added an Alert Center, and made it easy to jump straight to your ChartLists, saved scans or custom alerts using the 3 grey buttons in the top right corner of the page. Plus, the new Dashboard includes the market overview and "top 10" reports that used to live on our home page, making it quicker than ever to stay up to date on the day's market action.

There's more information about the new Dashboard than I can cover here, so don't miss our Video Tour of the new Dashboard! Click Here to watch now.

Lastly, you may have noticed that the StockCharts home page has changed. As mentioned above, you can now find the market overview data and other reports on the Members Dashboard. Simply click on the Members tab at the top of the page (and bookmark that page in your browser for quick access!).

If you are not yet a StockCharts Member, now is the perfect time to sign up for a free 1-month trial. Click the big green button on the StockCharts home page to get started! Otherwise, you can still access our free charts, tools and other features on the Free Charts page. Look for the Free Charts tab at the top of any StockCharts web page.

Until next time!

Sector Rankings and Weightings Are Still Market Positive

Article Image SECTOR LEADERSHIP... One of the problems facing the current stock market is that some sectors have been rising, while others have suffered large losses. Since the start of the year, for example, technology has gained nearly 14% versus a 6.7% gain for the S&P 500. Energy stocks, however, have plunged -10% this year. Industrial metal miners have lost -6% as have telecom stocks...

StockCharts carries the McClellan Oscillator for dozens of broad market indexes, but not for the S&P sectors.

Article Image It seems that nothing is ever easy in the market, but following price action is really important as we know. Following the November 1-2, 2016 Federal Reserve meeting, Banks (Financials in general) went ballistic as it looked very probable that the Fed would raise rates at the December meeting. Coinciding with that was the election of President Donald Trump a week later. It is
