FXI Chart

Even in pulling back by more than 2% on Wednesday, shares of FXI were much lower intraday.

Selling in the ^DIA^ helped bring the ETF just inside of oversold territory above the 200-day.

REIT and real estate-related ETFs were also among those closing in oversold territory ahead of trading on Thursday. Both non-leveraged funds like the ^IYR^ and leveraged funds like the ^URE^ (below) have closed lower for two days in a row.

URE Chart

Shares of URE actually have closed lower for four out of the past five trading days, with the past two trading days in oversold territory.

Gold-related ETFs have also begun pulling back. This includes both exchange-traded funds based on the actual bullion price of gold like the ^GLD^ and those based on gold and other precious metals mining companies like the ^GDX^ (below).

GDX Chart

The GDX has been under the sway of sellers for the past several days, shortly after reaching new year-to-date highs two weeks ago. GDX actually closed in overbought territory above the 200-day one day before dropping by nearly 2% on Wednesday to close in oversold territory.
