But, first, a look at the Major Indices and 9 Major Sectors and how they have fared year-to-date and during Q3...
Eight of the nine Major Indices, namely, the Dow 30, Dow Transports, S&P 500, Nasdaq 100, Nasdaq Composite, Russell 2000, S&P 100, and Nasdaq Transportation Indices closed out Q3 at or near all-time highs, as shown on the following 1-Year Daily charts.
The following Year-to-date graph shows the percentages gained for the Major Indices.
The SPX has gained 12.53%, so far, this year. This exceeds my forecast of around an 11% gain for the entire year, as outlined in my post of December 1, 2016. The Dow 30 regained and held its footing above 22,000, and the SPX, OEX, and NDX reached their "Big Round Numbers" of 2500, 1100, and 6000, respectively, as I cited as a possibility on August 4.
The next graph shows the percentages gained during Q3 for these Major Indices.
Market players were willing to add more risk in the form of Small-cap stocks.
The leader for Q3 of 2017 is Technology, followed by Energy, Materials, Financials, Industrials, Health Care, Utilities, Cyclicals, while Consumer Staples is -1.13%.
