High Probability ETF Trading: 7 ETFs You Need to Know for Tuesday (EZA, VGK, EWZ, RSX, XLY, XLF, SPY)
Divergences in the major equity index ETFs in the United States continue, with the ^QQQQ^ rallying back into overbought territory above the 200-day and the ^SPY^ pulling back for a third day to close oversold.
Note that gold-related ETFs, which had seen heavy selling in recent days, have started to see traders respond to the signficantly oversold conditions created by the profit-taking turned panic-selling in many instances.
Here are 7 ETFs You Need to Know for Tuesday.
As oversold as many ETF markets in the United States are, some of the most oversold exchange-traded funds in our database are country and regional-based funds. These include some extremely oversold ETFs like the ^EZA^ and the ^VGK^ (below).
Shares of VGK have closed lower for five trading days heading into Tuesday’s open.
Members of the so-called BRIC nations are also seeing oversold conditions as the week begins. Typical of pullbacks in this area are the four-day retreats in the ^EWZ^ and the ^RSX^ (below).
Closing in oversold territory for the past two days in a row, the RSX is at its most oversold levels since its last major pullback in mid-November.
Not yet in oversold territory but down three days in a row were shares of the ^XLY^ as of Monday’s close.
Down three days in a row – the past two in oversold territory – the ^XLF^ (below) has closed at its lowest level in nearly a month.
Also down for the past three consecutive trading days was the ^SPY^. The SPY closed in oversold territory on Monday despite not moving significantly below recent closing lows.
