Sector Rotation

The broker/dealer index has successfully broken out of the 244 resistance on Monday and today is at its all time high, with MACD and RSI both gaining strength. Check out stocks like GS, BSC, LM, LEH.

Nasdaq, which has been lagging S&P and DOW is now finally making its climb up on higher volume and higher lows. 50MA is a strong support, while 2470 is the level to watch for resistance.

OIH is still in its downward channel, having broken a strong support @ 130 on close 2 days ago. Next level of support @ 126. So where has the oil money gone to? Most probability used to light up the fire in tech and broker/dealer sector
