The Election Nears And The Modern Family Of ETFs Holds Strong

Friday gave the thrill of a roller coaster ride, as we watched major indices run up and down throughout the day. While it’s not the ride most investors look for in the market, it’s the best they can get since most amusement parks have yet to open. 

It also looks to stay this way as the United States watches Europe get hit by a second wave of Covid cases.

Without a vaccine this could lead the US to be more wary of lifting restrictions as we head into the close of the year.

Through all this insecurity the Modern Family continues to hold strong.

Five of the members hold a bullish phase while KRE improved into an accumulation phase on Thursday.

Going to the Modern Family, we can see that the regional banking sector (KRE ETF) has made the largest gain of over 7% since Monday.

This could support the idea of a rotation out of the tech sector and into the financial sector.

Weekly Chart of KRE

Being the weakest sector, a comeback through $43 and the 50 week moving averages is a good place to keep watch.

Going to the daily charts we can see that Grandad IWM, Transportation IYT, and Granny Retail XRT, are digesting their price ranges.

Big Brother IBB and Sister Semiconductors SMH on the other hand have come off a little more.

IBB has the 50-DMA as support at $135 with SMH attempting to create support from Thursday and Fridays low around $182.

The markets have put us all through a wild ride, but for at least a small amount of time the Modern Family holds its breath as they wait for the next big piece of news.
