XLF, XLI, XLY, XLV all showing evidence of Trend breaks, which is Negative

Durable goods beating on the topline- 1.7% vs 1.4, but Ex transports coming in weaker- 0.4% vs 0.6%-    Overall not much movement this am in Equities globally.  Europe giving back some of yesterday's gains.. NIKKEI set to finish the week down 1.4%.. Minor bounce in US this am, but just fractional change in Currencies, commodities and also bond yields globally-   Trend overall remains DOWN near-term in equities.. and we haven't seen sufficient strength to think the worst is over.. so Technically its right to think more selling occurs, which might suggest the healthcare bill does NOT get enough votes to pass.. but momentum still very much negative and structurally S&P needs to get up above 2351 at a minimum to expect further gains-  Key to note- sectors like Financials, Cons Discretionary, industrials (RAILS) and healthcare are all showing evidence of making minor trend breaks this week and/or are confirming TD sells which would indicate the possiblity of more weakness to come.  Only in the event of a sharp rally back today would most of these sectors regain the damage done.  but for now, we're seeing increasing evidence of many sectors starting to confirm what momentum has said for some time.   KEY LEVELS - 2338, 2331-2 on downside-   2356-7 on upside-  Early gainers in HTGM, RGLS, MU, ZSAN, WDC, RACE, while Decliners: NENE, MDGS, FINL, MYL, GOGL, GME-  Let me know if you have any questions
