Zinger Key Points
  • AXS 2X Innovation ETF is an actively managed double-leveraged ETF.
  • TARK is trading in a large symmetrical triangle pattern, which leans bullish for a break out.

AXS 2X Innovation ETF TARK was trading slightly lower Tuesday, working its way mostly sideways within a large symmetrical triangle pattern.

TARK is an actively managed double-leveraged ETF aiming to return 200% of the daily performance of Cathie Wood-led ARK Innovation ETF ARKK.

ARKK, and subsequently TARK, have been buoyed recently by the Bitcoin rally because Coinbase Global, Inc COIN is the largest holding within Wood’s ARKK fund, weighted at 10.91%.

Coinbase’s strong 124% rally between Feb. 7 and Tuesday has helped hold ARKK and TARK within a consolidation pattern while ARKK’s other two top holdings, Tesla, Inc TSLA and Roku, Inc ROKU have underperformed this year, falling about 30% each since trading started on Jan. 2.

The TARK Chart: TARK began trading in a symmetrical triangle on Dec. 27 and has recently been making a series of equal highs and higher lows within the pattern. The pattern leans slightly bullish because TARK has attempted to break up from the pattern multiple times and has respected the lower trend line of the formation on each retracement.

  • Since March 6, TARK has been holding above the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), which is trending above the 200-day SMA. This indicates the ETF is currently trading in a bull cycle and a golden cross was confirmed on TARK’s chart on Dec. 22.
  • On Tuesday, TARK was looking to print a hammer candlestick, which could indicate the local bottom has occured and the ETF will trade higher on Wednesday. If that happens, TARK will break up from the triangle pattern, indicating an uptrend could be on the horizon.
  • Bearish traders want to see big bearish volume come in a drop TARK down under the lower trend line of the triangle. Which could accelerate downside pressure. If that happens, the ETF will lose support at the 50-day SMA and could fall further to test the 200-day as support.
  • TARK has resistance above at $86.10 and at $93.20 and support below at $77.20 and at $65.46.
