In the strong reversal on May 10, many stocks and ETFs reversed from losses to gains throughout the day. One ETF in particular that caught my attention was the Consumer Discretionary Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLY).
The XLY dipped down to its 50-day moving average during the trading day, but then rallied back sharply to close higher. Back in August the XLY bounced off of the 50-day moving average on two occasions before moving to a new all-time high in September.
The reversal allowed the daily stochastic readings to make a bullish crossover and create a possible bullish signal. The indicators weren’t in oversold territory, but they made a similar move back in March before halting a brief pullback. After dipping down to the $107.50 level on March 8, the ETF rallied almost 10% over the next month.
The Tickeron AI Trend Prediction tool generated a bullish signal for the XLY on May 9 and that signal showed a confidence level of 77%. The signal calls for a gain of at least 4% over the next month. Previous predictions on the XLY have been successful an impressive 94% of the time.
