Real estate (XLRE) has broken its up trendline.
The US stock market is very + today. It is not wise to fight the broader market trend but SPXUSD has a lot of upward resistance at $2445.
I have tried to copy these data carefully but cannot be held responsible for any mistakes made. These data are important because high volume etfs are liquid which means you can get in and out quickly and there is a smaller spread between the bid and ask price. This affects the actual profitability of the entry and exits trades. The same considerations applies to put and call options. Use the highest volume etf that you can.
The risk of the 2x and 3x Leveraged etfs is that the 2x or 3x ration only applies to one trading day. After that, the ratio declines daily due to the rebalancing effect. NEVER hold 2x or 3x etfs long term as they fall in value over time. For long shorts (in a non margin account or 401k), just buy the 1x Bear etf.

I put these here for your and my convenience so we can use the elf which fits our needs best. If you know of a higher volume 1x bear for this sector, let me know.
Always use stop losses.
Thank you. I will be posting on the SPDR 1x long etfs for each of the 10 major market sectors. I will also start including the relevant short, long, and leveraged etfs in the links.
I want to put comments for each etf (AUM = Assets Under Management, daily trading volumes) so we know which are the most liquid (lots of volume, low spread between the bid/ask prices). There are sector "heat maps" readily available on the web but here we can see the technical trading signals. Good trading to you!
