Asbury Research Subscribers, as well as those who have seen us via the internet (Schwab Network, IBD LIve,, etc.) or the Asbury Research YouTube Channel, are probably familiar with our SEAF (Sector ETF Asset Flows) Model.  The SEAF Model “follows the money” to determine where investor assets are going and where they are coming from in US stock market sectors.  SEAF tracks the assets invested in the 11 Sector SPDR ETFs (which together comprise the S&P 500) in 3 different time frames to determine the best opportunities to capture outright and relative performance in the sector space.  

A key component of the SEAF Model is its accompanying “Rainbow Charts,” which plot SEAF’s weekly rankings of the 11 Sector SPDR ETFs over the previous year as they cycle through Favored, Neutral, and Avoid status.

In Asbury Research’s Saturday, March 2nd Live Teach-In via Zoom (a part of Asbury’s Individual Investor Service), we displayed and discussed the Rainbow Charts for three market sectors — Consumer Discretionary (XLY), Industrials (XLI), and Energy (XLE) — and how to interpret them.

The entire March 2nd Live Teach-In via Zoom was recorded and made available to our Individual Investor Service Subscribers on March 2nd.  If you are a Subscriber and have not seen the video, please contact us and we will send you the link.
