The week saw the broad market index decline 1.05%. Only two sectors, media (+1.3%) and utilities (+.42%), were positive. Here is the weekly profile on the sectors (click all images for enhanced viewing):
For the subsectors, here is a graphic of the top/bottom performers. GE led the Diversified Industrials with a 4.9% change for the week:
This week short interest changes were reported. Familiar sectors are still on the top 10 list. I am also including for you the top absolute % changes in short interest so that you can see where the bears are increasing their holdings.
As is usual, I have prepared for you a chart book. I have a lagniappe for you! I included chart thumbnails for the 148 subsectors as well as the 24 sectors (in addition to the detailed weekly/daily charts). Sometimes the bird's eye view helps build perspective. You can find the chart book here.
And finally, I will close with the chart of the total stock market index–both daily and weekly. First the daily, then the weekly.
The weekly chart (2nd chart) shows no damage to the trend lines, and the daily chart is showing some bumping against its trend lines. (Note that a 13 EMA on a weekly chart is a 13 week EMA, while on a daily chart it is a 13 day EMA). I hope you find this information and the weekly chart book download helpful to your due diligence efforts.
