Although every member of the Economic Modern Family closed down on Monday, none broke their major support areas.
Here is a quick rundown of where each member’s closest support level is.
First, we have the Russell 2000 (IWM) with support from the low of its current range at $218.83.
This low was created on 4/13.
The transportation sector (IYT) has support at $255.39 from 3/22. The prior high now serves as a minor support level.
Retail (XRT), Semiconductors (SMH), and Regional Banks (KRE) all have support from their 50-day moving averages.
XRT at $86.29, SMH at $242.18, and KRE $66.07.
One thing to note is how the banking and retail sectors have not closed underneath their 50-DMAs this year, which makes the price level of their moving averages more meaningful.
The Biotech sector (IBB) has tested support from the 200-DMA multiple times giving it a stronger support level at 145.94.
These 5 key sectors and 1 Index create the Economic Modern Family, which was created to boil down the overall market picture.
Additionally, by keeping track of their pivotal price levels, we can better time our trade entries and identify which sectors are leading or causing strain on the market.
