Chartology: Emerging Markets (EEM) Continue to Lag

Stock ChartsSince early February, the Emerging Markets (EEM) have really lagged the major U.S. indices (here shown against the S&P 500 index fund – SPY). This can mean one of two things: either the emerging markets are going to play catch up, or the S&P 500 is going to slow or pull in. Either one of these scenarios raises a yellow caution flag for the macro picture.

A healthy market would see the S&P 500 consolidate gains while the Emerging markets play catch up, but this seems unlikely as any news rallying Emerging Markets would likely be positive news here as well.
