The Industrial Conclusion?


The XLI ticker symbol does not get much press, but that sector ETF for the industrials is sporting an intriguing, multi-year symmetrical triangle near resolution.

Led by General Electric and quite a few transports attempting to carve out an important low, the once-dead money industrials might have one final dance before the cyclical bull since March 2009 comes to a close.
