EEM, Closes The Gap
Active Short: EDZ-22-01, Update
This post, highlighted the reasoning for a sustainable breakdown in the Emerging Markets, EEM.
The leveraged inverse vehicle for that index is EDZ.
Up until about two weeks ago, that fund was a low volume wall-flower.
That’s all changed … at least, for now.
The ten-day trading period from February 1st to 14th, had average EDZ, volume of 251,000 shares/daily.
Fast-forward, ten days from February 24th, to today, March 9th; average volume is up over 280%, at 955,000 shares/daily.
EEM Weekly Chart
The weekly chart’s orderly lower-trending price action broke to the downside during the week of February 25th.
Inverting the chart and noting the apparent trend-line shows this week’s action is closing the breakout gap and testing the trendline.
Closer-in on the (inverted) daily shows just how many hits there are on this trend; looks like about eight so far which includes today, March 9th.
This earlier post showed how I worked the sector via inverse EDZ (not advice, not a recommendation).
Depending on tomorrow’s price action, today may have been another low-risk opportunity for entry.
If EDZ makes a new daily high at the next session, the stop, identified previously (EDZ: 10.90) will be moved up to 11.96 (not advice, not a recommendation).
If that happens, the next day is likely to be the same and the next after that.
This is how fortunes are made and destroyed.
A good documentary on that process can be found here (Floored, time stamp 29:04); back then, it was a limit up.
