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.

Adobe Systems raised to Buy from Neutral at BofA Merrill.

Take a look at the 3 year chart.  The 50 day moving average is set to cross the 200 day moving average.  I like the candlestick pattern and would set the stop loss at $30 and target $38 to sell the stock.

GE raised to Buy from Neutral at UBS.

Take a look at the the 3 year chart.     This is not a spectacular chart but the stock is moving up. I would like to see this chart break $20 which is major resistance.
