Is The Retail Sector (XRT) Heating Up?

It has done some consolidation around the 50-DMA at $15.80.

Additionally, its recent low of $14.76 is not far away from the current price, which makes for a good risk to reward setup.

If it can hold the current range and confirm a move upwards on increased volume, M could have upside potential back to $20-21 area.

However, one thing to be warry of is finicky price action found in the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) and Russell 2000 (IWM), which are both sitting under their 50-DMA.

If they can clear their 50-DMAs this would offer a boost to retail and the overall market.

But if not, stay cautious as a choppy market is one of the hardest markets to trade.
