Retest for iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB)

I published this daily candlestick chart for IBB to highlight a couple of principles in technical analysis. First, the reversal of roles is an important concept in technical analysis. The $270 resistance point is now support. Second, a retest of the breakout point is common before the stock resumes the near-term uptrend. But, these are guidelines. Everything in technical analysis is about probabilities. A break below support of $270 would change the whole technical picture.
