The set-up: The Financial Select Sector SPDR (XLF) got slammed last week with yields going lower. The ETF dropped by about 3 percent, falling below its 200-day simple moving average in the process. I’ve had a lot of success with XLF throughout this year trading off of yield correlations – rather than simply looking for technical entry points – so last week’s fall puts the XLF right back on my watch as a possible bounce-back play.
What I’m looking for: Yields appear to be cooling off a bit pre-market this morning, and that correlation should give the XLF a boost back above the 200-day moving average. XLF has to not only cross back above the line, it has to hold it; if XLF is not above the average at 3:30 p.m. EST, I’ll simply move on.
How I’ll play it: Assuming I see the action I’m expecting, I’ll look to Dec. 15 $44 or $45 call options. The moving average will be my stop-loss, and I will be looking to take profits if I get to a 10 percent gain.
