This is a difficult market. Agricultural Chemicals work some days, Mosaic (MOS) is the one I have mentioned before but can't see getting into until the market breaks to the upside. Gold works some weeks, with Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM) being my favorites. Banks move on certain days, State Street (STT) and Northern Trust (NTRS) I have recommended before. But overall this is a really tough market with next to nothing working on a continued basis.
