A look at the relative strength of S&P 500 sectors vs. the overall average over the past year finds 3 - Consumer Discretionary (XLY), Financials (XLF), and Health Care (XLV) outperforming. Big outperformers a few months back, Telecom (IYZ) and Utilities (XLU) now trail. Underperforming badly not long ago, Energy (XLE) and Industrials (XLI) claw their way back.

    Thanks for the tip - now is the time to buy XLU, XLE and sell off Financials and Consumer Discretionary. Unless of course you think rising unemployment and ever decreasing top line sales of S&P 500 is a good thing?

     

    Fools game to be bullish on anything American or European.

    I agree, XLF is strong for tomorrow, I say buy it at 17.40 and hold til top at 17.50, hold then with trailing stop, or just get out for day profit. Not enough profit for a day trade, but perhaps a few days. I would not look for long term. Like be out before close of business Friday
