The S&P 500 Back in the Green: Weekly Breakdown and Individual Sector Performance

S&P 500 Back in the Green

After a disappointing week that had seen the S&P 500 close the week at -0.02%, Monday morning market opening aligned to significant weekly support, the opening price of $414.73 against the weekly support of $414.48.   

According to Yahoo finance analysts, the year-long run of the S&P 500 needs to take a rest. This sentiment echoes central banks who believe that the S&P 500 is long overdue for a pause.

Like previous weeks, the S&P 500 flirted with the weekly support and was buoyed to trade around the $417-$419 range. So far this week, it has defied all sentiments to trade at +1.02% compared to last week’s closing price.

The week in week improvement takes the year-to-date returns for the S&P 500 to 12.47%. It is up from 11.33% as at the close of the market last week. The individual sectors have had mixed performance even though only three sectors closed in the red. 

The health sector took a –2.65% tumble from its +1.68% high of last week. Fortunately, the consumer discretionary offset this short selling by +3.27%, gaining from last week -0.81%. The other major gainer was the industrial sector, +3.21% gain from -1.19% last week.
