    Buy on the Dip Prospects: May 22 Edition

    Below is a look at ETFs that currently offer attractive buying opportunities. The ETFs included in this list are rated as buy candidates for two reasons. First, each of these funds is deemed to be in an uptrend based on the fact that its 50-day moving average is above its 200-day moving average, which are popular indicators for gauging long-term and medium-term trends, respectively. Second, each of these ETFs is also trading below its five-day moving average, thereby offering a near-term 'buy on the dip' opportunity, given the longer-term uptrend at hand. Note that this prospects list also features a liquidity screen by excluding ETFs with average trading volumes below the one million shares mark. As always, investors of all experience levels are advised to use stop-loss orders and practice disciplined profit-taking techniques.

    Model Shows Increased Recession Risk Despite Less Volatility

    U.S. equities are off to a stellar beginning to 2019 and the volatility that reared its ugly head near the end of 2018 has been missing. It's certainly something investors want to mute since the Dow Jones Industrial Average is up almost 11 percent while the S&P 500 is 10.89 percent higher and the Nasdaq Composite is up 12.83 percent year-to-date. Just recently, the S&P 500 reached a key bullish technical level, moving past its 200-day moving average for the first time since December 3.

    The 4 Best Leveraged ETFs to Buy

    The S&P 500 is the benchmark U.S. equity gauges and one of the world's most widely used stock indexes. Around the world, trillions of dollars are benchmarked to the S&P 500.Here in the U.S., many of the largest index funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are S&P 500 tracking funds. In the U.S., the world's largest ETF market, just four ETFs have over $100 billion in assets under management. Three of those funds are S&P 500 ETFs -- the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY), the iShares Core S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:IVV) and the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:VOO).The S&P 500 and related funds are alluring for investors because these products are typically cheap, efficient and accurately reflective of the U.S. equity market. For investors willing to take on more risk in search of potentially higher returns, several leveraged ETFs offer exposure to the S&P 500, too.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Next 10 Months For risk-takers, here are some of the best leveraged ETFs tracking the S&P 500. Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bull 3X Shares (SPXL)Expense Ratio: 1.04%, or $104 annually per $10,000 investedThe Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bull 3X Shares (NYSEARCA:SPXL) is designed to deliver triple the daily returns of the S&P 500. So if the S&P 500 rises by 1% today, this leveraged ETF should rise by 3%. The operative word in the first sentence is "daily."Leveraged ETFs "seek daily goals and should not be expected to track the underlying index over periods longer than one day," according to Direxion.That is one point underscoring the risks of holding leveraged ETFs like SPXL for extended time frames. Another is the high fees associated with leveraged ETFs. There is little chance that, over the course of a year, SPXL will exactly mirror triple the performance of the S&P 500 and it is expensive for investors to learn that lesson as this leveraged ETF charges 1.04% per year.Think about that and then think about this: S&P 500 funds like IVV and VOO charge just 0.04% annually. ProShares Ultra S&P500 (SSO)Expense Ratio: 0.90%For traders that want to be involved with a leveraged ETF but want to decrease that juice, the ProShares Ultra S&P500 (NYSEARCA:SSO) is a fund to consider. Whereas the aforementioned SPXL looks to deliver triple the daily returns of the S&P 500, SSO attempts to deliver double the index's daily percentage performance.What that means is when the S&P 500 rises by 1% on a particular day, SSO should climb by 2%. While SSO offers reduced leveraged relative to a triple-leveraged ETF, it carries the same risks. * 10 Monster Growth Stocks to Buy for 2019 and Beyond "Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. These effects may be more pronounced in funds with larger or inverse multiples and in funds with volatile benchmarks," according to ProShares. ProShares UltraShort S&P500 (SDS)Expense Ratio: 0.90%Not all leveraged ETFs are bullish. Many are inverse and geared. The ProShares UltraShort S&P500 (NYSEARCA:SDS) is one of the largest such funds. Actually, SDS is one of the largest leveraged ETFs of any stripe.This is how this leveraged ETFs works. If the S&P 500 falls by 1% on a particular day, SDS should rise by 2%. Remember that this is a leveraged ETF and that the same risks that are relevant to bullish leveraged funds are applicable to SDS as well. Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bear 1X Shares (SPDN)Expense Ratio: 0.56%Not all inverse funds are leveraged ETFs. Some are just inverse, but inverse funds are often lumped in with leveraged ETFs, so the Direxion Daily S&P 500 Bear 1X Shares (NYSEARCA:SPDN) is worth highlighting here.SPDN is a good idea for the investor looking for downside protection without having to engage with a leveraged ETF. The Direxion fund's aim is similar: to deliver the same daily downside percentage of the S&P 500 when that index declines. As a non-leveraged ETF, SPDN can be held for long-time frames than leveraged equivalents and it is cheaper to do so as highlighted by SPDN's expense ratio. Over the near-term, SPDN is worth monitoring. * 7 Breakout Stocks In Early 2019 "Both the index and the bear fund are again approaching a cross at their 2018 starting prices," said Direxion in a recent note. "Bear in mind that CBOE's volatility index is still about where it was through October and November, 2018, which coincided with some of the market's biggest down days of the year. As in previous months with heightened volatility, it might not be entirely odd to see similar dramatic volatility in the months to come, as buyers and sellers fight it out as to whether to dig further out of the 2018 hole."As of this writing, Todd Shriber did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    S&P 500 Dips Below 200-Day Moving Average as ‘Death Cross’ Looms

    Trade war fears seeped back into the markets as investor optimism surrounding the tariff war ceasefire between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping faded, causing the S&P 500 to dip below its 200-day moving average while the "death cross," a technical chart pattern term that could signal a major sell-off, looms. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell over 700 points on Tuesday while the S&P 500 followed its lead, declining over 2%. As the S&P 500 crossed below its 200-day moving average, the 50-day moving average was in its sight, signaling a possible "death cross"--when a short-term moving average falls below the long-term moving average--a forecast that more pain could be ahead for U.S. equities.
