This morning I am recommending a bearish trade on the Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (NYSEARCA:XLU) .We are in a volatile market. The CBOE Volatility Index (INDEXCBOE:VIX) is channeling sideways, with the 200-day moving average acting as support.
Despite volatility, data suggest investors buy exchange-traded funds, as some ETFs could prove ideally suited for the current environment.
The Energy, Consumer Discretionary and Technology sectors have been among the best sectors in terms of performance so far in 2018, and they are expected to continue this success for the remainder of the year.

Largely speaking stocks continue to trade in ranges, but some winners are starting to separate from the crowd, one area being the utility stocks.
February’s pullback seems to have broken the bullish spell that had enveloped Wall Street, and now investors have to start doing their homework again.
Rising rates are bad for dividend-payers, and the Utilities Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLU) is likely to be in the crosshairs if inflation/interest rate expectations shift (as we expect) this week.
The best place to start is to see what sectors had sizzle to start with, which puts the spotlight on tech, financials and consumer discretionary.
Last week's bounce in the SPY ETF brought back the animal spirits of traders, but it looks increasingly likely that stocks may only bounce to lower highs for the time being.
Smart investors want to respect strong trends in markets, but this does not mean buy at any price. The SPY ETF is overbought for now.
These retirement ETFs can form the foundation to any well-diversified 401k or IRA plan. Here's what investors should know about each.
In the stock market today, money flows into energy and financials as staples and utilities falter. Tech, for now, is still in good shape.
A major market pullback doesn't drag down every stock, fund or ETF with it. These nine mutual funds thrive when the market loses ground.
