An Excellent Tool for Tracking Sector Performance in the Stock Market

If you click on the graphic above from FinViz, you'll see a day by day view of trailing monthly performance for the major sectors of the stock market. It's an excellent way, at a glance, of seeing which sectors have been gaining and losing strength. Note how the trend has shifted across the sectors from early September to the present, as the market has been gaining strength rather than topping out and losing momentum. Hats off to FinViz for some very useful, creative, and free tools.
