flashlight 300x171 Sector Spotlight: March 30th, 2012 (XLY, XLK, XLI, XLB, XLE, XLP, XLV, XLU, XLF)Every Sector with the exception of the Tech Sector performed well today to close out Q1 2012

Today’s improved sectors were led by the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund ETF (NYSEARCA:XLE) which gained .81%.  The increase in the energy sector was likely a result of continued talks about Iranian oil sanctions.

The overall sector improvement can likely be attributed to the last day of a meteoric first quarter and anticipation for a successful second quarter, alongside approval for today’s mixed but relatively positive US economic reports.
