    Her suggested stop loss indicates that her trade was stopped out shortly after filming this. I wonder if she is still convicted on her thesis and went long again near the $44 lows.

    XLC is the last place to be as the US heads into recession.

    Bad timing, but in no way captures Katie's value as a technician. Would love to see RV give her another shot.

    Actually this is a pretty decent idea once this downdraft (crash) is over. Made up of 40% FAANG stocks so it could be a good vehicle to ride for an end of year rally before the true deluge comes next year.

    Missing the macro . . . "biggest risk" is identified but the sheer magnitude of that risk is not being correctly weighted. This was a bold call, and I'm commenting with the benefit of some hindsight which I realize renders my views nearly invalid.

    using which timeframe do you see a bullish signal using TD on XLC?? from elliot wave I see wave 5 not completed which will drive the px below 45.

      The TD signals are among its constituents, not in XLC itself...

    stop loss is too tight in this volatile market creating a sure setup to be stopped prior to Katie's thesis playing out.
