Hanging in the clouds

Biotech stocks are trying like hell to stop the downside momentum at a very critical level.

One of the less popular forms of charting is Ichimoku Clouds.  I've lightly watched them over the past few years and noticed the very bottom boundary line seems to provide support in major uptrends.  They have some crazy name for that bottom boundary.  Maybe it's Tenken something or other.

Anyways the key point is, multiple charting disciplines are suggesting we're at a major support zone in Biotech ETFs IBB and XBI.  I wouldn't be surprised if we get another bounce here.  We can't judge the strength of any potential bounce based on this info, but we have an excellent area to trade against as our RISK.

A Whoa Bottom Signal

The CBOE SKEW index measures the market's perception of tail risk one month out.  Wednesday, all of a sudden this indicator dropped to a level not seen in a year.  The last time we saw a reading this low:  The day of the October 2014 bottom.  

Is this a meaningful market low?  It could be.  I'm on high alert at this point.  If you missed it, check out some good reasons to be bullish.  We also saw some very interesting gap-ups to trade against across the board Wednesday.

Thanks for reading.  Trade 'em well!
