ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Stocks closed out a strong week with some stalling action on Friday, with most averages closing in slightly negative territory.

With the broad based averages a bit extended in short term, we may see a few days of choppy action to allow the 10-day MA to catch up.

On December 20, we purchased Guggenheim Shipping ETF ($SEA) at 20.39 on a base breakout. Note the big volume on the chart below over the past two weeks.

$SEA big volume breakout

The strong volume confirms the breakout and signals that $SEA may be ready to move significantly higher through the first six months of the year.

Along with $SEA, Nikkei 225 Index ETF ($NKY), PowerShares Golden Dragon China ($PGJ), and Global X FTSE Greece 20 ETF ($GREK) have formed bullish chart patterns. We recently bought $PGJ in the ETF portfolio on a downtrend line breakout above the 50-day MA.

After a four month long rally off the lows, Market Vectors-Coal ETF ($KOL) stalled at resistance from the declining 40-week MA. After a few weeks of chop, $KOL broke the uptrend line of the rally and closed below the 10 and 40-week MAs.

The 10-week MA has also lost momentum, as it is beginning to turn down after going sideways for a few weeks.

$KOL BREAKDOWN

$KOL has been in an ugly downtrend since August of 2011, unable to climb back above the 10-month MA, which is much like the 200-day MA on a daily chart. A breakdown below the current base low could lead to a test of the 2009 low around $12.

$KOL monthly breakdown

A bounce into the declining 10 and 40-week MA’s on the weekly chart could make for a low risk entry point on the short side (for those interested). However, with our timing model on a clear buy signal, we are not looking to initiate short positions at this time.

Note the split stop in $FAS in the open positions section above.

On the stock side, we added one new position in $AL on a buy limit order, looking for the price to hold above the 50-day MA.

Note the split stop in $KNDI in the open positions section above.

We are monitoring a few stocks for potential entry points on weakness.

$ALGN is a medical stock with solid fundamentals and a strong relative strength ranking of 92 in the Marketsmith platform. We are looking for a slight pullback to the $55 area.

$ALGN pullback entry

We are already long $SCTY, but would like to add to the position on weakness to moving average support around the $53 – $54 area.
