The insurance stocks were strong Wednesday—up over 4%—as were the Homebuilders. The daily chart of the Dow Jones Insurance group shows the completion of a reverse H&S bottom formation in late July. The 38% retracement resistance is at 269 with the H&S target at 290. There is first good support in the 205-210 area.
