    Financial ETFs Take Lead in Slipping Market

    The the financial sector helped pare some of the losses U.S. stocks Monday, with the Financial Select Sector SPDR (NYSEArca: XLF) up 0.7%. For example, the Invesco S&P SmallCap Financials Portfolio (PSCF) gained 2.1%, SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF (KRE) increased 1.9%, First Trust NASDAQ ABA Community Bank Index Fund (QABA) rose 1.8% and iShares U.S. Regional Banks ETF (IAT) advanced 1.8%, compared to the 1.2% decline in the S&P 500.

    The One Regional Bank ETF Traders Should Like

    Regional banks, an industry group usually believed to be positively correlated to rising Treasury yields, are getting smacked even as the Federal Reserve boosts borrowing costs. The Fed has hiked interest rates three times this year with market observers widely expecting another increase of 25 basis points in December. KRE currently resides 19.59 percent below its 52-week high and 14.43 percent below its 200-day moving average, both of which can be seen as bearish signals.

    Bank Stocks on Shaky Ground After Big Reports

    Major banking funds have broken key support levels and dropped to 2018 lows, overwhelmed by eight Federal Reserve rate hikes and the most recent market swoon. Commercial and regional banks have lost ground at an equal pace in recent weeks, highlighting the broad nature of selling pressure that accelerated at the end of September. Meanwhile, Bank of America Corporation ( BAC) is struggling to hold the mid-summer low at $27.74, while Citigroup Inc. ( C) ended a refreshing period of leadership behavior at the start of 2018 and is now trading nearly 14% below the January high.

    12 bank stocks to buy as they benefit from what’s crushing other stocks

    While investors are in a panic about rising yields on U.S. Treasury notes, there’s actually one group that benefits from this trend: regional banks. Banks got hurt as analysts jumped on the “inverted yield curve” meme. The yield curve — a plot of short-term Treasury yields against long-term yields — was nearly flat at the time.

    Look to Financial ETFs as Borrowing Costs Rise

    Rising borrowing costs are not necessarily a cause for concern as rising interest rates typically go hand in hand with a growing economy, and financial stocks and sector-related exchange traded funds may do especially well in this type of environment. "When yields experience large changes in short periods of time, stocks can struggle to digest the moves," Bernstein's Noah Weisberger said in a note, according to CNBC. "So long as signs continue to point to a growth-driven move in yields, we think that over the medium term, stocks will fare well," Weisberger added.

    Regional Bank ETFs Should be Soaring, but They’re Not

    Historically, regional banks are positively correlated to rising Treasury, indicating exchange traded funds, such as the S PDR S&P Regional Banking ETF (KRE) , should be thriving in the current environment. More importantly, the fund has been drubbed over the past month, a period that includes the Federal Reserve's third interest rate hike of 2018. Higher interest rates would help widen the difference between what banks charge on loans and pay on deposits, which would boost earnings for the financial sector.

    Active Traders Look to Regional Banks for Strength

    Amid growing volatility across the global financial markets, active traders have been busy looking for relatively safe places to put their money. The behemoth companies within the financial sector such as The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. ( GS) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. ( JPM) tend to dominate the headlines. For example, the recent news that Goldman Sachs is reportedly backing away from its places to open a bitcoin trading desk essentially eliminated the probability that the smaller regional banks received any mainstream attention.

    A top-down approach first looks at the direction of the broader stock market, then digs into the  bullish or bearish trends in the different sectors and industries until finally arriving at single-name stocks worth buying/selling according to those trends. While trading single-name stocks certainly makes sense much of the time, over the years I have found great success making bets and playing trends and breakouts on sectors and industries using ETFs such as the KRE ETF.
