XLB Materials ETF

One thing that has been noticeable to me in early trading Tuesday is the relative lack of strength in XLB, materials etf.  Normally XLB jumps when EEM does, but it hasn't matched EEM up this morning.  One morning is not enough to be definitive, but it is something to watch, because XLB is lagging on a 10-day chart relative to QQQQ and IWM, which is where the fast money seems to be playing lately, along with XLV healthcare.
