The FXI weekly chart is quite illuminating and a good example of the importance of volume. What does the current volume pattern tell us? Compare to the previous volume patterns during the top and bear run, and the answer is clear . . .
A few sectors asserted themselves during last week's market up move. Education stocks are on fire and showing buying interest from the big boys.

I could not have imagined the QLD trade working better than it has.
