Sell Downgrades Weaken Homebuilder Foundations

The HMI peaked at 72 in June 2005, which is when I predicted a peak of the share prices for the homebuilders.

The index has been below 50 since May 2006, and home prices peaked in June/July of 2006. The low for the index was eight in January 2009.

My benchmark for the homebuilder industry is the PHLX Housing Sector Index (HGX) (191.18).

It has been moving sideways since Jan. 24 with highs between 192.39 and 194.06. HGX is up 11.6% year-to-date setting its 2013 high on Feb. 13.

My semiannual value level lags at 152.56 with a weekly pivot at 189.82 and monthly risky level at 194.28 lining up the Feb. 13 high.
