ETF Rewind - Week 33 (08/14/09)

(Click Image to Enlarge/ Glossary)

Markets took a breather last week with the S&P500 (SPY) down about forty-one basis points. In fact, only the safety plays, such as Utilities (XLU), Consumer Staples (XLP), and Healthcare (XLV), were able to record slim advances.

Week Thirty-[edit: Four] of 2009 features the following economic and reporting calendars (yes, there are still big-name earnings report to come!): Most short-term technical indicators are neutral after the late-week pullback. It will be curious to see how the often positive options expiration week expectancy plays against mildly waning price momentum.
