ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Stocks rallied across the board, with most major averages up 1.0% or more on the session. Tuesday’s strong advance was confirmed by volume, as turnover increased on the NYSE and NASDAQ, producing an accumulation day in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite.

The volume pattern in the Nasdaq has cleaned up nicely with two of the past three sessions registering a bullish accumulation day.

$NASDAQ ACCUMULATION DAY

The Nasdaq is running into resistance of the prior high, so a short-term pullback to or just below the 50-day MA could develop within the next few days.

How the Nasdaq reacts volume wise to a potential selloff will be key, as we do not want to see multiple distribution days.

The S&P 500 reclaimed the 50-day MA on a pick up in volume. If the S&P 500 is able to hold the 50-day MA this week, then our timing model could shift back into buy mode, as most leading stocks have held up well.

After a strong surge off the 50-day MA in late January, Coffee ETF ($JO) has paused for a few days, correcting more by time than price (shallow correction).

The combination of tight trading range and light volume the past few days is bullish, so $JO should eventually move higher after a shor-term break.

We are placing $JO on today’s watchlist. Please see trade details above.

$JO bull flag

Biotech ETF ($PBS) broke out from a continuation pattern on Tuesday, after three-weeks of tight price action above $40. A test of the $42 area or a touch of 10-day MA could present us with a low risk entry point on weakness (if it pulls back in).

$PBE Pullback entry

We stopped out of our short position in gold yesterday as $DZZ triggered its sell stop at $6.60. Gold stocks have been strong and may present us with a buy entry in a few weeks if they continue to hold up.

On the stock side, we sold partial size in $SYNA for a 12% gain.

Since $WDAY reports earnings later this month we are raising the stop to guard against a false breakout. If earnings were not a factor, then we would patiently hold on to our position with a stop beneath the lows of the current range.

We plan to hold A rated stocks $FB, $TSLA, and $SCTY through earnings. To produce big returns we eventually have to hold through earnings, which is fine as long we are holding an A rated stock.

After a breakaway gap up to new highs and a strong follow through in $KORS, we are patiently waiting for a low risk pullback entry to emerge. Could $KORS follow last year’s gap up in $FB?
