Global sector ETF performance update for the close of August is below and has also been updated as a free portfolio to track here. Note that all of the ETFs except IXP (telecom) were below the 200 day moving average at the end of August which in my preferred strategy would exclude them for consideration of any long position. The top three at the end of August based on momentum are IXP (telecom), [[KXI]] (staples), and MXI (materials).
Last month 4 of the 10 ETFs were above the 200 day SMA. The top three at the end of July based on momentum were EXI (Industrials), IXP, and KXI. I have previously discussed some possible strategies using this data here as well as some more active trading strategies.
