US markets look set to continue their pullback from overbought levels as we close out the week. Over the last five trading days, most sectors have pulled back within their trading ranges, and in the majority of cases, we’ve seen a move from overbought to less overbought levels. Energy is the only sector below its 50-DMA (it is also the only sector that is oversold). Meanwhile, the Consumer Discretionary sector remains at extreme overbought levels, while Real Estate isn’t far behind.
Despite the lackluster market performance this week, overall US stock market performance this year yeas been strong. Energy and Materials are the only two sectors that are down YTD while five sectors are up over 5%, including Technology which is already in the double-digit percentage range, and Utilities which is up just over 9%.
