A SKYY-High Buying Opportunity

On Friday, we looked at a Daily Price Chart of Abbott Laboratories, noting that the stock’s 12/26 Day MACD line is trading above the 9-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

Today’s Chart of the Day is a 10-Month Simple Moving Average (SMA) chart for the First Trust Cloud Computing ETF (NASDAQ: SKYY).

The SKYY ETF seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield, before the fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the ISE Cloud ComputingTM Index. The index is designed to track the performance of companies involved in the cloud computing industry.

The fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (including investment borrowings) in the common stocks and depositary receipts that comprise the index.

Now, below is a 10-Month SMA chart for SKYY.

Back in April, the SKYY 1-Month Price crossed above the 10-Month SMA, indicating SKYY is on a PowerTrend ‘buy’ signal (circled).

Guess what happened next…

Sure enough, prices continued to rise.

Since the PowerTrend ‘buy’ signal occurred for the ETF back in April – when the ETF was around $62.55 – the ETF has seen an 24.7% increase.

Now, as you can see, the 1-Month Price is still above the 10-Month SMA. That means the bullish trend is still in play!

This bullish price trend makes SKYY a good candidate for a call option purchase.

As long as the 1-Month Price remains above the 10-Month SMA, the ETF is more likely to keep trading at new highs in the coming days and weeks.

We’ll be keeping our eye on this ETF as it continues to trend upward. That way we’ll know the moment the market conditions shift and the ETF begins to come back down, offering a better buying opportunity in a bullish market.

Before Chuck Hughes won 10 Trading Championships, he was an accomplished Air Force pilot. In fact, he credits his success as a stock and options trader to his disciplined upbringing and career. When he was deciding between a career in the Navy and a career in the Air Force, the Navy told him he’d only have a 33% chance of flying jets. The Air Force gave him 100%. He liked those odds better. 35 years ago, Chuck had a wife, a young daughter, a son on the way, and a huge mortgage to afford. He didn’t want to give up on his lifelong dream and stop flying for a major commercial airline. He knew he needed to supplement his income during the 15 days a month he wasn’t flying. So he used his experience in discipline and math, and his understanding of finance and the stock markets (which he’d always been interested in,) and opened a $4,600 trading account. He made over $460,000 in profits his first two years of trading, and he hasn’t looked back since. When he was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease 15 years later, which commonly leads to vertigo…He knew his career as a pilot wouldn’t last much longer with those odds. But he didn’t have to scurry to find another gig, or panic about how his family would eat… He’d spent the last 15 years perfecting his system and raking in cash. As an options trader, Chuck does not let his emotions get in the way of his trading strategy. He adheres to disciplined and methodical options and stock trades. Because he respects the options game so highly, and understands the true freedom that financial solvency can bring, Chuck was able to design and refine his system and win those 10 Trading Championships. Put simply, Chuck Hughes’ trading strategies work, and in all types of market conditions. They’ve worked throughout the bull, bear, and flat markets America has seen in the last 30 years. Chuck Hughes has spent that time building a reputation as one of the most trustworthy options traders in the industry. His publishing group Legacy Publishing LLC was one of the few trading groups on the planet to have correctly predicted and profited from the 2008 financial crash .As a published author 16 times over, a 10-time Trading Championship winner, and an options-trading teacher for 25 years, he’s learned to trade and teach without an ego.
