The 11 S&P Sector ETFs Have Had Flip-Flop Ratings

The REITs, consumer staples, utilities and healthcare sectors have overweight ratings.

REITs, consumer staples, utilities and healthcare are rated overweight. Materials, industrial, consumer discretionary, financial and transports have equal-weight ratings. Energy and technology are rated underweight.

My Warning Continues: Reduce holdings in the stock market by at least 50%. Whenever there’s a rally use that strength to reduce holdings.

Establishing weightings based up their weekly charts is the backbone of an Asset Allocation Model.

· An Underweight Sector Has A Negative Weekly Chart. A negative weekly chart shows the ETF below its five-week modified moving average with declining or oversold weekly momentum (12x3x3 weekly slow stochastic).

· An Equal-Weight Sector Has A Neutral Weekly Chart. A neutral weekly chart shows the ETF below its five-week modified moving average with rising weekly momentum, or above its five-week modified moving average with declining weekly momentum.

· An Overweight Sector Has A Positive Weekly Chart. A positive weekly chart shows the ETF above its five-week modified moving average with rising or overbought weekly momentum.
