Todd Gordon, founder of TradingAnalysis.com, says resistance in the broader market could exacerbate weakness in the sector.
“We have a series of three tops right around $280 in the SPY, 2,800 in the S&P 500. I think that is going to be a source of resistance so we have resistance in the broader market,” Gordon told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Tuesday. “Back to XLC, this product I think has been underperforming on the bounce back. So, with the idea that we are facing resistance in the broader market, I think it’s going to make sense to hedge.”
“Provided we stay under $47, we should be able to move down to the $43.75 area right there. So this is the whole move that I’m really looking for, just a little bit of a pushdown,” said Gordon.
So is Todd Gordon right, lets go to the charts to find out?
Weekly Chart (Curve Timeframe) – weekly high is at $52 and weekly low is at $38.
Daily Chart (Trend Timeframe) – the trend is up.
Todd Gordon level are within a range where there was a lot of trading. I personally don’t like trading in the middle unless I’m joining the trend. Thus, the chart suggest to short XLC if price makes it to the daily supply at $49.50.
