ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Yesterday’s price action was a step in the right direction for the Dow Jones and S&P 500, as both averages held above the prior day’s low and are beginning to find some traction on the hourly chart.

$SPY hourly chart consolidation

For the Russell 2000 and NASDAQ Composite, it was business as usual, with both averages consolidating in a very tight range near the swing high.

$IWM bull flag pattern

After breaking out above range highs on 9/18, Technology Select Sector SPDR ($XLK) has pulled back into a logical support area, formed by the prior breakout level and the rising 20-day EMA just above $32. There is also support from the rising 10-week MA on the weekly chart, which is currently sitting at $32.01.

$XLK Pullback to breakout level

We are looking for a buy entry above Thursday’s high, with a faily tight stop below the 20-day EMA.

After two weeks of consolidating in a tight range, our long position in $TAN is now in great shape due to yesterday’s big volume advance above $32. We look for the price action to follow through to the upside next week and potentially hit our target of $36.50 in a few weeks.

$BLOX has been a monster mover so far in 2013, as it rallied more than 80% from a base breakout around $24. We like the current pullback to the 20-day EMA, and although we would prefer a slight undercut of the four day low before entering, we do not want to miss the next move out. As such, we are placing $BLOX on today’s watchlist as an official buy just above $40. We are basically buying the pullback to the 20-day EMA with a wide stop (about 9% away), which is also beneath the low of the 9/6 gap up.

$BLOX PULLBACK
