    Biotech ETF, XBI
    First highlighted by Paula several months ago. On the weekly chart, XBI may be forming a Head & Shoulders bottom – maybe. It is really too early to make that call, it is just an observation. I would be more encouraged if the MACD(50,200,10) made a bullish cross of the signal line.

  2. Ron/BC Says:


    Thanks for the chart & comments. Here is a Daily chart of XBI. It has a good message in it as well. Price broke below 81 in May and recleared it in July retesting it several times successfully. Then running up to its downtrendline and pulling back to 81,now support. Note the 20ema has been above the 50ema since early July. Been a long time since that has happened. Clearing that downtrendline would strongly suggest a breakout above 95 and a quick run up to 118.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    “IF” the U.S$ pulls back any further it could sell off sharply. That being the case one could expect a lot of markets to rally sharply. Ex.$Gold/$Silver and many other inverse markets. Lots of “W” patterns out there………………

  4. FishFat Says:

    Ron/BC re:XBI
    Yes, the daily chart reveals a few more bullish characteristics. Besides the positive moving average cross you mentioned, there is also the PPO that looks set to make a bullish cross of the signal line, strength relative to the SPX is positive, and the MACD(50,200,10) is holding above the signal line. On the downside, there is a lot of overhead resistance and a thousand things could still go wrong (especially in the month of September) but overall, not a bad looking chart.

  5. Paula Says:

    FishFat and Ron/BC,

    Thanks to both of you for your charts and comments.

    FishFat, thanks for referencing me on XBI. I agree with your and Ron/BC’s comments on XBI, but I am reluctant to put much money into the market at this time. Sold my XBI in mid August, waiting for a better entry on a major market swoosh. In spite of saying that, I did dip my toe into GDX. It is definitely a short term trade, thinking it could bounce to at least the 50EMA ~ 26. If it can clear the 50EMA, the next level of resistance is ~ 27.50. There would be strong resistance after that all the way up to the descending 200EMA, currently ~ 30.35. I am starting to think that the only way to trade gold stocks is to wait for extreme oversold patterns when there is a likelihood of a mean reversion. As Ron/BC points out, this is something to consider when the USD pulls back which it seems to be doing.
