I don't have the time to watch individual stocks and generally keep to:
USA main indexes (SPX, NDX, INDU, RUT, NYA/VTI and their ETF & futures variations)
Safe havens TLT, GLD, GDX, VIX and variations
USA sectors (semi-conductors, biotech, financials... yes there are many more)
Global stocks (ACWI, EFA also a benchmark, Shanghai, FXI, EEM, RSX, EWZ, occasional peek at EWJ / NKY and EWG / DAX)
Oil & DXY with occasional glance at other currencies
Given this is my watchlist what is above all pivots?
SOXX / SMH
PIN / INDA
FXI is not on this list due to YP, but Hang Seng recently cleared that level.
If not above all pivots, then the next strongest are: above 3 Y, 2H and Q4 but below monthly (SPY, DIA, many others) OR below YP and above the others. The latter category consists of:
If markets rebound next week then the next likely to regain all pivots (in rough order it should happen) are:
XBI held up very well on September drop but currently under YP and OctP.
Anyway there are different ways to make the same point but this tells you were the best long plays have been (and likely continue into year end) are: technology, semi-conductors (on a tear this year), financials and global stocks, especially the oil related names EWZ & RSX that were beat up last year.
