Dow Transports Retesting Weekly Breakout
The Dow Jones Transportation Average represented by the $IYT ETF has been a strong performer throughout May and June. It broke out to new all time highs on July 3rd, resolving a multi-month range sideways.
However, over the past week of trading, we’re seeing some near-term selling pressure come through, and a break of this accelerated bullish trend line.
Here’s the IYT on the daily:
The daily looks rough, but when we zoom out to the weekly, we can see we are simply re-testing the breakout area in a long term bullish uptrend.
For you dip buyers out there, it’s probably worth paying attention to this pullback and general area for an opportunity to get on board a recently emerged breakout (if it holds).
For you bears, you’re looking for this to collapse back down through those June highs signaling a “false breakout” and maybe even the start of something a bit broader.
For some added beta, look at some of the underlying stocks within this ETF.
They’re industrials, specifically: Airlines, Railroads, Transportation & Shipping.
My favorite trade ideas on the long side would be $DAL, $FDX, $LSTR.
Good luck out there.
