The Teflon Market - S&P and the Sector Performance

The Teflon Market as they call it on CNBC shrugged off all the bad news from Middle East and Japan and is once again in Bull mode. SPX broke above the 55-Day MA targeting the 1335/4o recent highs. Technicals remain Bullish and trend looks constructive at this stage.

Small Caps represented by Russell 2000 are outperforming the S&P and looking for new highs.

Basic Materials remains in the best performing sectors list with Precious Metals leading the rally as Silver is on a strong Bull run with immediate targets above $40.

Energy Sector along with Crude Oil making new highs underpinned the strong performance of the S&P in the midst of the recent tensions. Oil & Gas companies seem to benefit from the rising Oil prices and the fears from the Nuclear power as Uranium stocks were hit extremely hard after the Japan Earthquake.

Financials are struggling and remain below the 55-Day MA. Housing sector problems and big number of mortgages still under water seem to be a drag on the balance sheets with slow credit growth doesn't help also.

Industrials are lagging the Materials and Energy but still perform in the top tier as economic recovery goes on.

Technology is having problems below the 55-Day MA for the moment as companies still withhold from spending.

Interesting enough the Consumer sector is a raging bull here but looking a bit tired as the trend is looking a bit flat even though we see a nice pull back after the Japan earthquake hit. The QE2 loose money policy should be benefiting the consumer while it is a bit confusing as the housing sector is struggling and mortgage payments are a drag on consumption for a large part of the lower income population until the unemployment falls to levels below 6-7%.


Utilities as a traditionally defensive sector are not in vogue and actually flat for the last 6 months.



Health Care is actually in a pretty healthy position. We should monitor the political decisions for further guidance in this sector.

  4. Sometimes we can't imagine that sports are so funny but we really enjoyed when we look at funny sports pictures, moments and videos. I can also would suggest taking a few minutes to successfully snicker not to mention grin available at funny pictures ( imagenes de humor ) and then funny videos ( videos divertidos ) to assist you in the quest with cheer in addition to stress reliever. Music: My - Space is indeed the friend of music, but it has close ties with the independent artists, who make up for what they lack in record contracts and money by being My - Space-strong, building a strong fan base and creating loyal street teams, which then take on a lot of the advertising on the band's behalf.

  5. What the heck i just read? The very first matter is to consult your doctor before making use of this product.
    The extract of Yacon Syrup can be purchased in the form of pills and products and advising the physician can provide you a clear idea of
    the fact that will it fit your needs or not.
    This product typically meets the wants of the individuals but differences are normally there.
    So, you must ensure that you are not the main one who are unable to use this supplement.
    Essential thing is concerning the dosage.
    You need to question your personal doctor
    concerning the absorption and be special concerning this authentic
    Yacon Syrup.
    WOW.Nice read here. The best key to precisely how this supplement will work is that it
    can be a dual-action diet solution, and therefore it operates as an appetite suppressant plus a
    "fat burner". This really means that it oxidizes fat cells by
    using anti-oxidants, and that leads to very much more power for your needs - however , only
    if you know how to use authentic Yacon Syrup in the ideal style.A lot of diet solutions available today were created around reving up your
    metabolic rate, which is simply not secure for many people - and this
    is the reason why more and more decide to buy Yacon Syrup
    extract instead.
