ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

The market extended about 1.0% higher in the morning session, highlighted by a breakout to new 52-week highs in the S&P 500 and Midcap S&P 400. However, a late session selloff forced most averages to retreat well off the highs of the session and close near the mid-point of the day’s range.

Stocks continue to push higher despite 1) overbought market conditions and 2) ugly V-shaped patterns from a sharp selloff and equally sharp rally. When market conditions remain overbought without much of a pullback it is typically a sign of strength.

Emerging Markets ETF ($EEM) has rallied into resistance from a broken uptrend line and a declining 50-day MA. Tuesday’s price action stalled above 39.70 for the second time in two weeks. There is also resistance from a prior swing low in mid-January at $40.

$EEM STALLING AT THE 50-DAY ma The stalling action at the 50-day MA presents us with a low risk entry point on the short side. However, rather than shorting $EEM we will look to buy the inverted Direxion Emerging Market Bear ($EDZ), which is a 3x leveraged ETF.

$EDZ STALLING AT THE 50-DAY ma

Trade details can be found in the watchlist section above.

After breaking down below a key swing low in January, $TBT failed to follow through to the downside and formed a bullish reversal candle during the week of February 7. The false breakdown and reversal formed a double bottom like pattern with an undercut on the weekly chart below. If the price action can clear $73, then $TBT might be ready to rip higher over the next several weeks.

$TBT REVERSAL

On the stock side, we continue to stalk $IRBT for an entry on weakness with a buy limit order just above the rising 10-day MA

For those who missed our initial entry point in $INVN, yesterday’s light volume, inside day offers a second low-risk entry point at support from the 10 and 20-day MAs. The entry is over Tuesday’s high using the stop we already have in place in the open positions section.

$INVN inside day  $SCTY failed to report earnings after the close, but is scheduled to report….again…on March 3. As long as the price action holds the 50-day MA ,then we will continue to hold. A heavy volume break of the 50-day MA will force us to exit.
