    XBI, SPDR Equal Weight Biotech ETF
    The chart for XBI has bullish potential. See attached. There is positive divergence on multiple indicators. A double bottom has formed since mid-May. Performance relative to the SPX has turned positive. However, the CCI indicator is overbought, so a pullback of some sort may yet occur. For me the risk/reward potential makes this a good entry point. Just to be clear, XBI is still in a downtrend. The positive chart attributes may only be indicating a shift to a sideways trade. I believe Paula has highlighted this trade in recent weeks, good call Paula.

    RE #1. XBI

    Thanks for continuing the conversation. I changed the ratio on your chart to compare it to XLK, rather than $TSX. Not sure if I drew the trendline correctly. Feel free to adjust. I also made it slightly smaller so I could see it without scrolling sideways. Don’t know if the XLK is the best etf to compare, but it might as good as the SPY.

    I agree with you on all the bullish divergences but I have found that they don’t mean a lot if there is a distinct downtrend. On a longer term, weekly, chart, see second attachment (courtesy of Ron/BC), there seems to be strong support at the 62ish level with previous bounces up to just under 100ish. BUT, not too far above where the price is now is the descending 20EMA ~ 80, so expect to have some strong resistance. Also, that was the previous low/support from where it broke down most recently. Also the RSI(8) indicator seems to be having trouble getting above the 50 level.

    On a daily chart, also courtesy of Ron/BC, the RSI(8) indicator touched the 70 level and has since pulled back along with price. Perhaps this corresponds with your overbought CCI indicator.

    I have found XBI to be extremely volatile, so could expect a pullback and possible test of the 70ish level, especially as the overall market volatility continues. If you have access to intraday charts, this pullback since last Friday has already brought the hourly RSI(8) down from overbought to touch the 30ish area, as well as the price tested the rising 50EMA ~ 73.50, so perhaps today’s low at 72.78 provided a “cooling off” before proceeding up to test the 80ish level. BUT, there was a previous short term high at 78.95 in early May, so it could be argued that the more recent high at 77.66 was a lower high. Maybe it already hit the higher side of an overall lower trading range as long as the overall market is in a bear. Good luck with this one.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    Here is a Weekly 8 year chart of XBI and one can see the obvious support at $62 with plenty of bullish indicators suggesting further gains, but with resistance levels ahead. A pullback to $65 would not surprise me and would be the place to get long imo. Lots of dollars to be made and lost on this one!

  4. Ron/BC Says:


    I should add that the “GOOD BOOK” of Technical Analysis would say if price tests a price support for a 3rd time then that is not bullish but bearish and is likely to break down as the two previous bounces off that support failed to “follow through” to the upside BUTTTTTTTTTT I’d be tempted to get long on another test of the $65 “area”.

  5. Paula Says:

    Ron BC,
    Agree 65 is possible and would be good risk /reward entry.
    Thanks for the input.

    re: XBI
    Paula; You are right, plotting performance of XBI against the TSX makes little or no sense. I did mean to plot performance relative to the SPX but in my haste to get out the door this morning, I plotted against the TSX. Thanks for catching and correcting that error.

    Paula, Ron/BC
    Enjoyed your comments and insights. A test of the $62 level would shiver me timbers. I don’t want to go there (or at least not past there).
