ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Stocks sold off across the board, with the Russell 2000 the biggest loser on the day at -0.9%. Aside from the Russell, the losses were contained to -0.3% or less on the remaining averages.

Turnover increased on both the NYSE and NASDAQ. The slightly higher volume on the NYSE produced a valid distribution day in the S&P 500, but the selling was not severe.

One could argue that there was some distribution in the NASDAQ Composite as well, as the reversal off the highs on higher volume is a sign of churning.

Yesterday’s action tells us that the market may continue to chop around for a while, as averages like the Midcap S&P 400 backed away from the swing high.

In yesterday’s report we discussed a potential buy setup in PowerShares Golden Dragon China ($PGJ). We are placing $PGJ on today’s watchlist (trade details can be found above).

Along with $PGJ, we are also placing iShares MSCI All Country Asia Excluding Japan ($AAXJ) on today’s watchlist.

$AAXJ’s top holding are China 25%, S. Korea 20%, Taiwan 15%, Hong Kong, 13%, and India 8%. In prior reports we discussed the bullish price action in South Korea ($EWY) and Hong Kong ($EWH), so $AAXJ has the majority of its exposure in solid chart patterns.

$AAXJ is setting up for a potential downtrend line breakout on multiple time frames.

On the monthly chart, the price action is now sitting above the downtrend line. If $AAXJ can break the high of November’s bullish reversal candle, then we could potentially see a rally to the prior highs of 2011, which is around $65.

$AAXJ DOWNTREND LINE BREAKOUT

Dropping down to the daily chart, we see the 50-day MA has crossed above the 200-day MA, which is a bullish moving average crossover. The price action has tightened up nicely the past few weeks, holding above the 20 and 50-day MAs. With the 20-day EMA and 50-day MA now pointing in the right direction, it looks as though $AAXJ could be poised for a breakout within the next week or two.

On the stock side, we are placing $MDCO on today’s watchlist as a buy limit order.

$MDCO has formed a bullish base near all-time highs and is attempting to breakout from the base. We are looking for the action to test the 10-week MA either this week or next before moving higher.

The buy entry is on a slight undercut of last week’s low, with a stop below the 50-day MA.
