Every week we have some level of expectation as to what we are going to see when we screen more than 800 ETF stock charts. But almost always, the charts have their own story to tell. It reminds us of the joke: Do you want to make God laugh? Then tell him your life plans. Much like the joke, what we expect to see and what we actually see are two very different things. This is one of those weeks.

When you read all the headlines: the market’s hot, new highs, NASDAQ, S&P 500 & Dow Jones Industrials all breaking out, the economy is on the road to recovery, earnings better than expected… so you expect technology stocks, growth stocks and sexy stories to dominate the charts like Michael Jackson in the '80s. That’s not what happened this week.

Under the surface we see some new possible trends emerging from our technical analysis of ETF stock charts: Banks stocks, Insurance stocks, REITs and value stocks are in. Technology stocks and growth stocks might be headed for the backseat. Perhaps money is just rolling out of what was hot into what’s been not.

These ETF stock charts delivered buy signals relative to the S&P 500 and could outperform the index in the weeks and months to come.
