After blasting through resistance at 1960, the S&P 500 is now less than 0.5% off the 52-week high.
The Dow Jones and Russell 2000 finally joined the other averages and recaptured the 50-day MA.
Our scans did not turn up much in the way of low risk setups on the ETF or stock side, and that is due to the recent run up, as most stocks are extended in the short term and will need to rest for a bit to produce low risk entry points.
We do have one new buy setup on the ETF side in PowerShares India (NYSEARCA:PIN), which cleared the downtrend line of the current consolidation on Monday after finding support at the prior swing low on 8/7.
Volume picked up on a test of the 50-day MA on 8/15, and was just above average the following day on the 8/18 breakout.
We are placing $PIN on today’s watchlist with a target just below $26, where there is resistance from prior highs in 2008 and 2010.
