Back in December we successfully identified and swing traded the bottoming formation in gold miners, followed by energy/oil/gas in early January. Often when one or two sectors show this formation, other related sectors will follow.
Steel is showing signs that it is the next bottoming formation candidate. This sector does not have an ETF to trade, so we look to leading stocks like X.
Notice the trend line break. The big gap up 5 days ago was an earnings breakout, which gives the stock the catalyst it needs to start a new trend. Positive volume is pouring in, which is exactly what we want to see.
As we saw with gold miners and energy, these types of bottom formations take time to develop and are volatile. You must be patient with entry as there will likely be a pullback and test of the lows.

Nice succinct analysis Paul.
Paul, SLX is there if you prefer ETF instead.
Thanks for the tip. I prefer leveraged ETFs to get the extra volatility.
