ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

The S&P 500 ETF ($SPY) failed to overtake the $161.50 – $162 level for the third day in a row on Monday. For the past two sessions, it has given back all or most of the morning gains into the close, which is clear stalling action. So far, the only index to reclaim the 50-day MA with authority is the small cap Russell 2000.

$SPY STALLING ACTION

 

Because of the afternoon selloff, the morning advance in the $SPY now looks more like a run on stops for those who went short over the weekend based on Friday’s weak close. These shorts were more than likely stopped out within the first hour of trading on Monday. If there is follow through to the downside in the $SPY this week, then we would like to see a bullish reversal candle form somewhere in the $159 – $160 level (but as you know anything can happen).

After a heavy volume shakeout beneath the rising 50-day MA on June 24, First Trust DJ Internet Index ($FDN) immediately reversed back above the 50-day MA, which is a bullish sign. In the short term, $FDN may be a bit extended, so we could see some sort of a pullback develop within the next day or two, especially if the price action stalls at the daily downtrend line. We’d like to see a test of support at the 50-day MA (around $45) to produce a low-risk entry point.
