Financials and Healthcare

There has been some interesting action in the Financial and Healthcare Sectors over the past few days.  The Financials have broken through well-defined resistance while the Healthcare Sector has failed at resistance and broken its recent uptrend. 

First you can see how the XLFs have broken through the important $23.80 resistance level.  Next you can see how the XLVs have run into resistance around the $75 level and broke the uptrend that began in July.  Both of these sectors make up about 15% of the S&P 500 makeup.

Here is a view of there XLVs since April.
