Pharma and Energy look to be attractive, while Insurers, Media weaken

Roughly 1 hour to go.. Equities have gradually firmed a bit after early pullback attempts failed , healthcare still the driving force on the long end, while Financials have been huge underperformers and both Financials and Telecom down roughly 2%-  Yields have plummeted in the last few days and TNX now down at 2.05%, with flattening yield curve testing important support-  S&P has NOT gotten up above the key 2467 area today, but still largely in No-Man's land, but the big pullback in the US Dollar and also pullback in Yields has been bullish for the Metals.. And Gold back up to near key resistance-   Worth noting that TNX close to getting buy signals on a counter-trend basis, while Gold shows the same signals, but as SELLS   so difficult to know how this will play out, but most of the countertrend signals are all lining up in unison to suggest a turn back HIGHER in USDJPY, higher in TNX and LOWER in Gold, which could be seen as a peaceful resolution in the short-run to North Korea-  TECH is higher by 0.50% while AAPL is down and many Tech indices and QQQ show counter-trend sells on the horizon which would be triggered in the next 2 days into early next week-  Overall.   Look to own Healthcare and Energy, while avoiding financials in the short run, particularly the Insurance stocks with Irma on the horizon and the Discretionary space with the media sector causing quite a bit of turbulence in the Discretionary space today-   Bottom line.   Still no firm guidance for direction, but much suggests a bounce attempt into early next week which should prove to be a selling opportunity
