ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Stocks were hit hard yesterday, with most major averages dropping 1.0% or more on higher volume. In hindsight, Wednesday’s distribution confirms that there was churning (bearish stalling action at the highs) earlier in the week in the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite.

Wednesday’s selling does put quite a bit of pressure on the current rally, but the uptrend remains intact in the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Composite. The small and mid-cap averages are relatively weak and in danger of losing the 50-day moving average, which is our line in the sand during a bull market.

What would it take for our timing model to produce a sell signal? A clear sell signal would be generated if most major averages and leading stocks were both under heavy distribution, and major averages were below the 50-day moving average.

We have one new setup on today’s watchlist, and it is a potential short setup in silver. Rather than shorting iShares Silver Trust ($SLV), we are looking to buy ProShares UltraShort Silver ($ZSL) on a pullback.

The weekly chart below details the sharp rally off the lows at the beginning of 2013. $ZSL ran out of gas around $110 and pulled back into the 40-week MA. After two months of chopping around, $ZSL finally broke the downtrend line of the consolidation and rallied, stopping just shy of $100.

$SHORT SILVER $SLV

Currently $ZSL is in pullback mode, and we are looking for a potential long entry on weakness at or near support of the 10 and 40-week moving averages.

The daily chart shows the gap down below support at $86 this week. Notice how all three major averages (20, 50, 200) are now trending higher and in proper order. The 50-day MA has crossed back above the 200-day MA as well.

As mentioned above, we are looking for an entry on weakness. Trade details can be found in the watchlist section above.

$SHORT SILVER $SLV

Here are a few more ETFs we are monitoring on the short side should market conditions continue to deteriorate: Emerging markets ETF ($EEM), Brazil ETF ($EWZ), and real estate ($SRS).

We canceled buy setups in $SKYY, $QCLN, $PGJ, and $AAXJ. We will continue to monitor these stocks for bullish reversal candles.

On the stock side, we added one new position in $MDCO, which triggered on weakness.

$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. $FB, $SSTK, $HOLI, $KNDI, and $EVR remain in good shape.

$SSTK’s chart is still very tight.

 $sstk BREAKOUT

$SCTY is holding up at the 50-day MA so far. The stock has great potential, but the solar group is under heavy selling pressure the past few weeks.

 $SCTY pullback
