US stock indices down most since Brexit; Real Estate, Utilities weakest
US stock indices including Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P500, Russell 2000 and Nasdaq moved by most on Friday 09 September 2016 since Brexit. This is what the sector breakdown looks like according to SPDR Sector Select ETFs.
Based on 1-day and 5-day movement, investors appear to be most worried/selling Real Estate and Utilities. Utilities selling down could be a bad sign – this is the sector that investors turn to when there is volatility but if it is sold down, then potentially investors are also thinking 1) that even utilities are fully/over-valued 2) a broader market correction is coming.
