ETF, stock, and broad market commentary:

Stocks retreated for the second day in a row, with small and mid-cap stocks down the most at -0.7%. By the close, losses were limited to just -0.4% on the S&P 500 and -0.3% on the NASDAQ. Total volume was heavier on the NASDAQ signaling yet another distribution day, however; the close was well off the lows of the day after undercutting the 10-day MA (so not a clear cut day of distribution). Lighter volume on the NYSE allowed the S&P 500 to escape distribution for the second day in a row.

The recent distribution in the NASDAQ is a concern, and we are beginning to see some leadership stocks break down. That being said, the majority of leadership is still acting fairly well, which leads us to believe that the current pullback in the major averages will be short lived. Market conditions can and do change quickly, so our analysis as always is good for today’s report only.

If was a rough day at the office for solar stocks yesterday, producing quite an ugly candle in $TAN on heavy volume. There is support from a short-term trendline and the rising 50-day MA around $25. We expect to see some sort of shakeout below the 50-day MA to occur within the next few days, but overall, we would like to see the price action hold above the 10-week moving average on a closing basis (on the weekly chart).

$TAN breakdown

Looking our our current ETF holdings, $SMH, $FCG, and $USO are basically range-bound, while $IHI and $FDN continue to trend higher above the 10-day moving average. $FDN is still trading above the breakout pivot at 49.50, which is also a good sign, as a false breakout from a short-term consolidation in an extended stock or ETF can often lead to a sharp reversal.

The trend is our friend in $FDN…still above the 10-day MA.

$FDN strong uptrend

On the stock side we added two new positions in $LNKD and $URI. $SCTY and $TUMI reported earnings after the close and as of 8pm, $SCTY was down 9% and $TUMI down 13%. Be prepared to sell these stocks if they open below the protective sell stop.

We have one new setup on our watchlist today in $LNKD, where we plan to add to our exisiting position over Tuesday’s high with a tight stop on the shares we are adding only.

We are monitoring $KORS for a low risk entry point on a pullback (if one develops). Ideally, we would like to see a 2-3 day selloff that undercuts the rising 10-day MA and $68.
