ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Stocks closed with modest gains across the board with the exception of the Russell 2000, which finished slightly negative on the day. Last week’s choppy price action has produced bull flag type patterns (so far) on the major averages. If the broad based averages remain above the 10-day MA, then the current rally could play out similar to the run up during the first quarter of this year, with very shallow corrections along the way.

Since May, iShares MSCI Frontier 100 ETF ($FM) has been tightening up on the weekly chart, with each selloff from swing high to low retracing less than the last. When we examine a stock or ETF’s basing action, we always look for a tightening of the price action and a dry up in volume. If a pattern has these two things going for it then it’s in pretty good shape. Note the dry up in volume during the past three weeks in $FM vs. the 10-week volume average.

$FAS PULLBACK ENTRY

After breaking out from a tight range above the 20-day EMA, the price action pulled back to the prior breakout level on declining volume last week. This is a key support level that should hold, especially with the rising 20-day EMA just below. We are placing $FM on today’s watchlist. Trade details can be found above.

$FAS PULLBACK ENTRY

Just a heads up, holdings in Kuwait 26%, Qatar 18%, United Arab Emirates 15%, and Nigeria 12%, account for more than 2/3 of $FM’s exposure.

On the stock side, we have one new buy setup in $LOCK, which is a potential pullback entry off the rising 50-day MA.

$XRT PULLBACK ENTRY

The chart below shows a 5-week flat base, which has only corrected about 13% off the highs. $LOCK has already found support on a touch of the 50-day MA a few weeks ago, and we look for the price action to find support at the 50-day MA once again. A second touch of the 50-day MA could potentially form a higher swing low within the base as well, which is a bullish sign.
