Tim Has Already Stolen My Thunder

Seven ETFs to Ponder
 
By -

It’s going to be a very rainy day here in the Bay Area, so why not relax with some ETF charts (OK, that makes no sense, but I can’t think of an introduction).

The “diamonds’ remain in a DNAAB (Desperately Need An Ass-Beating) pattern. (pronounced ‘de-nab’).
0107-DIA

 The miners, which I am very short by way of DUST, had an amazingly clear top (green tint) that was somewhat mucked up with Thursday’s surge. We’ll see it we can break below that neckline again come Monday.
0107-GDX
Gold, of course, will be the arbiter of that outcome. It seems to me completely plausible that we could sink back down to that red support line at around $109. If it does, DUST is going to do great.
0107-GLD
The small caps share the same DNAAB pattern that the Dow does.
0107-IWM
Homebuilders are squeaky-clean, but the long-term pattern looks like a sector that’s running out of gas.
0107-XHB
Hey, look, another DNAAB pattern! Financials…….
0107-XLF
Lastly, Brazil is a pretty cool setup, since it did an almost perfect gap-fill last week.
0107-EWZ
