The majority of the financial stocks had failed to participate in the stock market rally from the late-August lows as the Financial Select Spyder ETF (XLF) had stayed in a narrow range over the past five weeks. The convincing breakout above the resistance in the $15.10 area yesterday was impressive, and XLF has continued higher today. There is next resistance in the $16 area with further resistance at $16.65-$17.00. I expect to see a one- to two-day pullback over the next week before XLF continues to move higher.
