Sector changes: The sectors in the Stage 2 zone (Above 60%) has increased from 5 to 6. The sectors in the Stage 1 / 3 zone (40% to 60% range) has decreased by 1 to 5, and the number of sectors in the Stage 4 zone (Below 40%) remains at zero.
The table below shows the weekly change, which was mostly negative last week, with only the Energy sector gaining, but it also shows that the overall average did move more significantly above the 60% level into the Stage 2 zone, as it reached 65.75% in the prior week. So further improvement is needed to move into the Stage 2 zone more convincingly.
