In this episode of StockCharts TV’s Sector Spotlight, for this last Tuesday of the month, I take a look at seasonality as the S&P 500 enters the (historically speaking) strongest month of the year. Two sectors are showing meaningful odds for out-performance in April, and one of them nicely aligns with the current sector rotation as it is playing out on the Relative Rotation Graph. In the discussion of rotation in the remaining sector, I bring in the weights of the various sector in the S&P 500 and explain how these can be clarified to explain the dispersions and shifts of the tails on an RRG.
