A bullish signal on XLB (Etf Materials Select Sector) with the target in the area $63.50. Stop loss at $57.30.
The deconstruction continues in material stocks. The culprit this time around was a poor reading and interpretation of construction spending. I think it was a big over-reaction given the overall trends.

The Materials Sector SPDR Fund has been in a bull trend since the end of the financial crisis. The trend has narrowed but remains upright since December 2016. The fund has been in a more specific trend channel since February and has created firm support and resistance levels. The fund is currently at that resistance level. Below I have laid out the reasons and ...
A possible major dimension trend start
SPX vs Major Sectors. I added IBB to cover Biotech.
Please comment. My understanding at this point is to stay in sectors which have good fundamentals and have been relative laggards. The 3 bottom ones at this point seem to be Financials, Technology and XLU / XLP.
Since utilities is a risk-averse sector, so in a pro-growth environment I may want to go with the ...
Handle risk with caution, weekly timeframe is definetly not what i like so it can turn out to be a loser, but those sometimes turn out to be huge if momentum proceeds so a smaller risk can still do well.
new trend potential if support holds above trading range.

then high potential for trend continuation.

On short term perspective price also showing no particular trend - XLB is trading within 1st standard deviations from ...
XLB broke below the 8-month rising trendline support to reinforce the triangle top breakdown. The next support rests at 49.80 (June 9, 2015) and then 49.45 (200 day moving average). Below there would open 48.39 (March 26, 2015). It would take strength back above 50.60 (June 11, 2015) to stabilize and lift for 51.78 (May 8, 2015) near the triangle top resistance ...
XLF has been consolidating within a 6-month symmetrical triangle pattern (from October
15, 2014 low and December 29, 2014 high). The key support lies at 23.78 (March 26, 2015 low), near the triangle lower bounds and the 200 day moving average currently at 23.64. While the 23.78/23.64 support area holds dips, if bulls manage to reclaim 24.54 decisively (April 16, ...
XHB has been consolidating within a 2-month range between March’s 35.01 low and the 37.31 YTD peak (March 31, 2015). While the 35.01 range support holds dips, back above the 36.59 resistance (April 16, 2015 high) would suggest basing and offer scope for further bullish momentum towards 37.31. Clearance above the latter is needed to complete the 2-month long ...
