Sector ETFs To Buy In September

| September 21, 2015 | 0 Comments

It’s been a crazy rollercoaster ride for US stocks over the last month.  The S&P 500 had its first 10% correction in years.

In short, there’s a lot of uncertainty.  And many believe slowing global economic growth will cause US economic growth to peak and slow in the months ahead.

Economic Data Impacting Sector ETFs To Buy In September

The Federal Reserve announced last week that they will keep interest rates steady in order to avoid inflation and keep a slowing economy to a minimum. The central bank has been hinting at the possibility of a hike before the new year and believe steady interest rates will help a slowing economy.

There is some good news, however, in the economy.  US jobless claims fell 11,000 to 264,000… the lowest it has been since mid-July.  This shows that the domestic economy remains somewhat resilient even with a slowing global economic outlook.

Investor Sentiment Signals Sector ETFs To Buy In September

Another thing to keep an eye on for buy signals is investor sentiment. Over the last few months, a majority of most investors have been sitting on the fence.

According to the AAII Investor Sentiment Survey (AAII ISS), investors have moved into a neutral stance. They’re neither bullish nor bearish on stocks over the next six months.  The percentage of investors in a neutral position is at 37.6% according to the AAII ISS.

This follows the market trend of uncertainty, as investors are waiting to see a stronger global economy.

Now, the S&P 500 is down 7% over the last month.  And that’s after a 4.5% bounce off the recent low.

S&P 500

As you can see, the selloff sent the large cap index below the 200-day moving average.  This had been a critical support level.

Needless to say, this has done major damage to the multi-year bullish uptrend.

Now the S&P 500 is in no man’s land.  It’s well below the highs and the 200-day moving average.  But it’s also well above the next technical support levels.
