Direxion Plans another “Bearish” Bank ETF

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

Direxion plan to launch a new BEARISH BANK ETF to the mix.

The new NON LEVERAGED fund could be a competitor to the Proshares SHORT Financials ($SEF).

The new fund would track the results of the Financial Select Sector Index, the same index tracked by the Financial Select Sector SPDR, instead of the Russell 1000 Financial Services Index which $FAZ tracks.

DIA - Swing Trading ETF


Inverse ETF's rally and the SHORTS come out in droves.

Traders watched the overall market continue its sell off this week.

After four days of sideways trading the sellers stepped in again on Friday and pushed the market down to new multi month lows.

Almost every sector on the map felt the pain.

Technology related ETF's continued to fall.

XLK - Swing Trading ETF

Real Estate and Financial ETF's got pummeled.

XLF - Swing Trading ETF

The Energy and Oil ETF's that were showing signs of strength last week are now not looking so strong.

If these sectors break down through the near term support levels they definitely have room to fall.

XLE - Swing Trading ETF

The market looks ripe to continue to move lower as the strongest stocks look to be "rolling over".

If you are looking to the SHORT side for trades try to find stocks or ETF's that are not yet extended to the downside.

If you are not comfortable with SELLING SHORT then you can always look to "get long" some Inverse ETF's.

As always be prepared for anything and act accordingly.

Until next week…Good Trading to YOU!

The overall market SOLD OFF this week as sellers stepped and drove stocks lower.

The SELL OFF came in INCREASED VOLUME after the market pushed higher last week on less than stellar volume.

The SELL OFF has traders looking to INVERSE ETF's for possible trade setups in the very near future.

The Energy and Oil ETF's took a hit and and going to be sectors to watch moving into next week.

Agriculture ETF's continue to show weakness and the Steel sector could be headed towards a NEW LOW.

You can see a Technical Analysis walk through on one of the weak Agriculture stocks ($MOS) by clicking HERE.

The Retail and Semiconductor ETF's and holding up very well during this recent PULL BACK in the market.

Despite the recent selling pressure just remember that the market is still trading above its 50 day SMA.

The are more Swing Trading opportunities on BOTH sides of the market now so that tells us that we are at a pivotal point.

There are still plenty of strong stocks to watch ($R, $INFA, $K, $WLK, $ERTS, $M) so make sure to have a plan for next week.

If we trade higher on good volume next week the market could continue its move up.

If we trade higher and volume doesn't follow through then we could be in for another leg down in the near term.

Until next week…Good trading to YOU!
