SD, would you say RIO and Ftse are correlated? Could you spread trade these two as a pair do you think?

not spread trade but , weak RIO hampers strength in FTSE, also RIO break of major trendllines can be bearish for FTSE, miners should do well during an economic expansion and if they under-perform it is very bad signal

I found a good article on deciphering risk on and risk off, the ratio of XLP/XLY

sp staples versus Sp discretionary.

the same applies in some way to banks a rally with weak banks is not healthy for sustained expansion.
