These stock types all tend to make seasonal trend reversals during this time. Join John Person as he shares in detail these sectors and targets specific sub-sectors that may present great trading opportunities. What are the next major levels of support and which sector will emerge as the leader?

Join us in this preliminary end of month stock screening session as John Person uncovers which sectors and industry groups present investment opportunities for the month of June. He will be using four top trading indicators: PPS, PMC, Persons Pivots, and a highly sophisticated Volume indicator. We currently see rotation into Industrials like Illinois Tool Works ($ITW), transportation like Alaskan Air ($ALK), and UPS plus money trending back into financials especially Banks and Insurers like Citi ($C), Wells Fargo ($WFC), and Chubb ($CB). John Person will cover if these stocks are setting up for more sustainable gains, what other opportunities lie ahead, as well as what risks he thinks we should take.
This presentation will highlight what stocks and sectors are setting up for trend moves for the month of May. Normally we hear about sell in May and go away but as usual nobody said it's the first of May. We have numerous stocks looking quite positive with great profit potential and limited risk opportunities. In addition, we will look at why investors need to focus on gold miners, and why certain spread trades in Treasury markets using 10-year notes and 30-year bonds may help investors stay in the game. Plus, John will look at other commodity's like Lean Hogs. This session will also show the scan results on thousands of stocks using John Person's proprietary indicators like the price-based PPS momentum study and his PMC indicator showing relative strength conditions from various trading platforms.

John Person explains how scanning the markets every week reveals what sectors are due to outperform.
