Over the last 30-months, Lumber and Homebuilders have been much stronger than the S&P 500.

Both were upside leaders as Homebuilders gained 50% more than the S&P and Lumber doubled S&P gains since 1/1/16

Joe Friday Just The Facts– Both of these leaders are breaking rising support at each (1), which could be sending an important message to the broad markets.
