Is There A Buy Signal In The UltraShort China ETF? (NYSE:FXP)
“The ProShares FTSE/Xinhua China 25 (NYSE: FXP) appears to be executing a saucer bottom. In late December, the 20-day moving average crossed above the 50-day moving average, which gave a trading buy signal and resulted in a gain of more than 30%,” Sam Collins Reports From Options Zone.
Collins goes on to say,”Now the stock has executed a breakaway gap through its 50-day moving average. This is a powerful buy signal with supporting volume and a trading target of $53.”
“A word of caution: This fund is for traders only. Because it is constructed to move at twice the inverse rate of the underlying investment, it carries greater risk than an ordinary ETF, so investors should use stop-loss orders. Also, the SEC has determined that “ultra funds” are not good long-term investments and that they are most appropriate for short-term trades. The margin requirement for most leveraged ETFs is 100%,” Collins Reports.
