Some sell signals on my Robinhood shares account: QAT and WEAT.  That gave me four slots to fill, which I did. Here’s the new line-up, with XLV being a hold-over:

sym slot # price $ sector
FXE 1 105.99 currency-euro
XLV 2 92.21 health care
XBI 3 86.76 biotech
GLD 4 134.86 metals
XOP 5 25.16 energy

The exits:

QAT, out at $17.93, producing a -0.4% (7 cents) loss over 2 days, or a -71% annual rate.

WEAT, out at $5.34, producing a -2.65 (14 cents) loss over 2 days, or a -466% annual rate.

Here’s a write-up on the methodology.
