Though the major averages like the Dow and S&P 500 have surpassed their summer highs, financial stocks are still lagging. The Financial Select Spyder (NYSE: XLF) just barely moved above its 200-day moving average this week and still has major summer resistance at $15.10-$20. XLF's next good support level will be in the $13.80-$14 area. Bank of America (NYSE: BAC) has been forming lower highs and lower lows since June. BAC violated important support at $14.30 in July and the major 50% retracement support is at $11.20. For a technical look at some other Dow stocks see this week’s trading lesson.
