It’s looking like a weak start to trading for the week as futures are firmly lower ahead of the opening bell. We’ve seen a big jump in interest rates over the last two trading sessions as BoE Governor Bailey came out with some hawkish comments related to inflation. In economic data, Chinese GDP came in below forecasts with Q3 growth coming in at just 0.2 on a quarter/quarter basis.

Outside of Communication Services which fell nearly 1%, every other sector within the S&P 500 finished last week higher, and in some cases, a lot higher. Materials, Real Estate, and Consumer Discretionary all rallied more than 3% with the latter also hitting a new high. Every other sector besides Health Care (and Communication Services) were all up by over 1%. In terms of where each sector finished the week relative to its 50-day moving average, they are currently all over the map. Sectors like Consumer Discretionary, Energy, and Financials are all at ‘extreme’ overbought levels while Health Care and Communication Services are still below their 50-DMAs. Even Real Estate, which was the second-best performing sector, still finished the week below its 50-DMA.
