Some good and bad in the market right now.
Despite some willingness by the market to try and rally in recent days, there is still a lot of pressure weighing on the sectors across the board. The headline risk is at extreme levels, and that is keeping me from being too aggressive on the long side.

The 3 worse sectors are:

Let’s review the sectors:
Basic Materials (XLB)
Consumer Staples (XLP)
Health Care (XLV)
Consumer Disretionary (XLY)
