How to Trade a Potential Breakout In Utilities 

by | Sep 18, 2023

The Utilities sector, tracked by the XLU ETF, has failed several times to break through resistance. 

It’s knocking at the door again, so is this time different?

The Average True Range for XLU on a daily chart is $3.41, according to the RoadMap software I use. That puts XLU at about $68.40 on a strong day, which is just above resistance and its 200-day moving average. 

If it gets there, it will likely test the area for a few days, just like in the past. 

If XLU ignores the area, that would tell me there’s a lot of volume flying to safety. 

That would make XLU a good trade and a good indicator of more volatility to come in the broad markets like the S&P 500 and Nasdaq.
