One of the Beatles many hits was “I Need A Little Help From My Friends“ (see video here) Banks/Financials have been a good friend to the broad market since the 2009 lows, helping to pull the S&P 500 higher.
Now the Bank Index (left chart above) and the Financials ETF/XLF (right chart above) are both testing their 38% Fibonacci retracement level of the 2007/2009 financial crisis. This morning the Dow is setting at all-time high levels and the 500 index isn’t far behind.
The best news/a real positive for the broad market is to “get some help from the Banks/financials” by breaking above this important Fib level!
