Perhaps surprisingly, these are two of the best-performing sectors since the July lows with gains of 20.1% and 28.2%, respectively. The daily charts show that the June highs have been convincingly overcome. Biotech has next strong resistance in the 520-530 area with key support at 475-490. Some of the best-performing biotech stocks are DNDN, GILD, and AMGN. The coal index looks even stronger and has next resistance at 340-350 with key support at 289. Some of the stronger coal stocks are ACI, JRCC, and MEE.
