Market Outlook/Potential Opportunities:
Matching Up Apples to Apples
Some ETF's do not have a lot of historical data yet. If they are commodity based, then you can look at the commodity itself and get a glimpse of what the ETF might do. A good example is the trade we made in COW. Now if you ever traded the meat markets, you know that they are probably the toughest markets out there to trade. I would not recommend a futures position in any of them. But looking at the futures does lead me to believe that COW could go higher, even if we are a little bit behind on the trade. Another example of this, and one ETF that I am watching is Powershares DBA grains. It is looking like a possible buy here at 36.90. Now looking at grain prices, it appears that soybeans are poised to move higher, but corn, wheat, rice and oats are not. Still I am watching this trade to see how it unfolds.
I have four new recommendations for today.
Remember the last article on PAL. I know it would be nice to buy at our price, but I am going to recommend buying one position @ the market. It is trading @ 6.74. We will then add a second position @ 5.75 or better. I normally do not like to average down on trades, but the price and potential on this ETF warrants that we do this.
Another commodity ETF is flashing a buy. We need to buy Claymore CGW Global Water @ the market. There is all this talk of a water shortage. The charts are telling me that there might be something to this story.
Powershares DBB Base Metals. We want to be a buying on a Limit Order of 25.60
Xshares Healthcare HHJ Emerging Cancer. We want to have a Buy Stop at 16.50. If it breaks above that level, it should move up very good.
Stay the course on NRL and EWT.
