Here's the weekly look at sectors.  You may download or preview the full report here.

The market is sorting things out--raucously. The overall market ($DWCF) was down  For the 23 major sectors, $DWCUTI Utilities was the only winner and $DWCBNK Banks (a subsector of Financials) was the biggest loser. Below is the weekly performance of these major sectors and their comparative with the Total Stock Market Index.

03/17/2017 Weekly Sector Update

I'm late out of the gate on this. First, you can download the weekly report here.

I was not able to run the 24 Sectors for last week; however, you can find them embedded in the larger report.  Below are the Top 10/Bottom 10 Subsectors.

IN the chart books, I made a few changes to the presentation of the charts.  The time frame is weekly.  To each chart I added the Guppy Multiple Moving Averages (GMMA) along with a 50EMA.  I don't typically work with Multiple Moving Averages in this fashion, but I ran across Daryl Guppy's presentation of it.  I was intrigued by using inferred contexts of Traders (short term moving averages) and Investors (long-term moving averages).  Using exponential moving averages, he uses the following indicators to segregate each group.

Short Term Exponential Moving Averages:    3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 15
Long Term Exponential Moving Averages:  30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 60
Because these are weekly charts, the above will correspond to weeks v. days.  I also pulled a 50EMA in an area shading.  I found that this combination of moving averages against the backdrop of the 50EMA provided an nice perspective.

Weekly Sector Update | 03/10/2017

Last week was one where the market broke sharply and recovered. As I am sector-centric here, I want to present the sector moves for the week.

The table below represents the 24 sub industries.  These represent the major divisions under Energy, Financial, etc.  Not much green.

Below are the Top 10 Winners and losers in the  DJUS Subsectors (these are the further division from above).  Note that the first 2 digits number in front of the name corresponds with the industry code above.  So 37228 (Cyclicals Home Constr) falls under the 3700 Personal and Household Goods.

And I have created a weekly chartbook (in ticker symbol order) for your viewing pleasure which you can find HERE. I wish you a good trading and investing week, and I hope that you find this information useful in bird doggin' opportunities.
