Chartology: Financials (XLF) Ready to Breakout?

technical analysis, stock chart analysis, stock charts, technical chart, chart analysisSimilar to the Bank Index (BKX), the Financials Select Sector (XLF) is on the verge of breaking out. So if the finnies aren’t already on your radar, add them to it. See BKX chartology here.

No doubt, the financials will be important to watch in the week ahead. Not there yet, so stay patient or keep tight stops until confirmed. But a sustained break higher would go a long way in confirming the current market rally. As Todd Harrison of Minyanville so aptly says, “as goes the Piggies, so goes the poke.”

As well, keep your eye on the European markets and any additional action to assist their banks. And as always, trade safe.
