The health care sector—and sector ETF XLV—has underperformed the S&P since the February lows as the daily RS chart shows a violation of its WMA on February 11. The daily chart shows that there is good support and the 200-day MA in the 350 area. This is generally considered a defensive sector that could benefit if the overall market continues to correct, but I would expect the RS analysis to identify this turn.
