Wednesday’s ETF Chart To Watch: ENZL In Spotlight After New Zealand Rate Decision

Stoyan Bojinov

Stocks continued their ascent on Tuesday thanks to upbeat economic data from China. Investors rejoiced over better-than-expected industrial production data as well as retail sales, sending a wave of optimism across emerging markets as well as developed ones, although industrial metals surprisingly didn’t take part in the rally. At home, Syria and the looming Fed meeting remain at the forefront and, as such, volatile trading is likely to persist over the coming weeks [see 3 Market Valuation Indicators ETF Investors Must Know]. 

Our chart to watch for today is the iShares MSCI New Zealand Capped ETF (ENZL, A), which may gap in either direction at the opening bell as investors react to the overnight interest rate decision. Analysts are expecting for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand to hold rates steady at 2.50%, although commentary after the rate decision itself could still spark a volatile reaction in the equity market.

Chart Analysis

Consider ENZL’s one-year daily performance chart below. This ETF was enjoying a steady uptrend until it peaked at $39.66 a share in late April and proceeded to sink below its 200-day moving average (yellow line). Since then, ENZL has had a number of failed attempts at regaining its footing above $36 a share; notice how this ETF failed to summit the same resistance level (red line) in late July and mid-August despite launching off a rising support level [see Visual Guide To Major Index Returns By Year From 1970].

What’s encouraging this time around is that ENZL has managed to peer above this resistance level, and more importantly, this breakout has been accompanied by above-average buying volume. As such, this uptrend should continue over the coming days, although a slight pullback could follow as it nears resistance around $37 a share [Download 101 ETF Lessons Every Financial Advisor Should Learn].

Outlook

If the latest commentary from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand strikes an optimistic tone among investors then equity markets overseas will likely rally; in terms of upside, ENZL has upcoming resistance around $37 a share followed by the $39 level. On the other hand, bearish commentary can spark selling pressures in ENZL; in terms of downside, this ETF has support at $35 a share followed by the $33 level. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.

    Mark Cuban: Why you should buy a two-year supply of toothpaste

    When it comes to saving big, small changes are a good start. "If you try to downsize your house, get rid of all yours cars and make all of these drastic changes, it's so overwhelming and you're not going to do any of it," says self-made millionaire Chris Reining, who banked over half his income to retire at age 37. "The small changes will lead you to be able to make the big changes." You could start by saving on toothpaste, for instance.

    North Korea wrote an open letter to the West, and it’s a doozy

    Donald Trump’s America First policy is “the height of American way of thinking that it is best if the U.S. is well-off at the expense of the whole world.” US allies and partners are “devoid of principle, narrow-minded and selfish.” The Trump administration is “trying to drive the world into a horrible nuclear disaster.” These are the claims of North Korean diplomats in an open letter to various parliaments of the world. The letter, first published Oct. 20 by the Sydney Morning Herald, was called “unprecedented” by Australia’s top diplomat, Julie Bishop. The communique is dated Sept. 28—10 days after the US president’s fiery speech to the UN General Assembly where he called North Korean leader

    Why 2018's Social Security COLA May Really Be Just $1

    More than 66 million Americans will see a 2% increase in their monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in 2018. But many will see their take-home pay stay about the same as it was in 2017. In dollars and cents, the average retired worker's monthly benefit will rise $27 to $1,404 in 2018 from $1,377 in 2017. But depending on what happens with Medicare premiums, many people could see little or nothing of that 2% COLA, said Elaine Floyd, director of retirement and life planning at Horsesmouth. By way of background, the SSA deducts the Medicare Part B premium, which helps pay for physician, outpatient hospital, home health, and other services for the aged and disabled

The zero-emissions vehicle — which Japanese automaker Nissan Motor Co. unveiled in the U.S. late Tuesday and in a Tokyo suburb Wednesday — promises a range of about 400 kilometers in Japanese driving conditions or 150 miles in the U.S., before needing another charge. The distances depend on driving conditions and how much other items in the car such as heating are used.
