Taylor Conway, lead day trader at PennyPro.com, said that Monday’s market action and the ongoing rise in biotechnology stocks highlighted the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology ETF (IBB) and its inability to break through resistance levels. If the ETF fails to move upward again, Conway said he expects it to drop, potentially by as much as 30 points, going back down toward recent support levels. In this “Off tthe Charts” segment, he said he would play the Direxion Daily S&P Biotech Bear 3X Shares ETF (LABD) as a means of playing the pending decline, setting tight stops and creating a good risk-to-reward potential on the trade.
