Charting a Future Possibility versus the Current Reality (Free)

The chart below shows the Cybersecurity ETF (CIBR) with two sets of annotations: a future possibility and the current reality. The future possibility shows that a bullish reversal could be in the making as the ETF held the January low and surged late last week. The current reality, however, is a downtrend that has yet to be reversed

The blue annotations show a possible support zone that stems from broken resistance (45-46 area). It is also clear that the decline from the November high to the Jan-Feb lows retraced around 2/3 of the prior advance (March low to November high). Thus, we have a normal retracement and a return to broken resistance break, which means this could be a correction.  

Even though CIBR found support and surged, it has yet to reverse the immediate downtrend by breaking above a prior high. Also note that the Trend Composite turned bearish in mid January and price broke support on 21-January (green zone). The Trend Composite signal and breakdown are the dominant chart features. The red shading shows resistance and a break above this level is needed to reverse the immediate downtrend. Thus, the downtrend is in force and has yet to be proven otherwise.

Last week at TrendInvestorPro we identified new bullish Trend Composite signals in two commodity related ETFs. The weekend video also showed a bullish setup in an Aerospace & Defense ETF and a short-term breakout in a Clean Energy ETF.   Click here to learn more and gain immediate access.
