    Financials – Can’t go to new all-time highs without them. They continue to outperform the SP500 since March 25th. FXI (China) at new highs going back to Jun/18 which is positive for the overall market. It looks like a slow grind higher.

    Hello,

    Is anyone aware whether Equity Clock changed their access to charts by subscription only?
    Seems like every chart I try to access is now asking for registration/subscription.

    Thanks,
    KC
