With a major healthcare conference next week in San Francisco, the biotech stocks are getting lots of attention. The RS chart shows the upside breakout last June 27th, and since then, the S&P Biotech Index is up 2.9% versus a 27% drop in the S&P 500. The chart shows strong resistance in the 1050-1100 area.
