Zinger Key Points
  • SPRX is an actively managed fund offering investors the opportunity to achieve more than passive tracking of the broader market.
  • The ETF has been trading sideways within a rising channel pattern on the daily chart.

Spear Alpha ETF SPRX was trading flat on Tuesday, continuing to trade sideways within a tight range between about $22 and $22.90 on decreasing volume.

The SPRX Chart: SPRX has been trading sideways since May 3 but since April 22, the ETF has been trading in a rising channel pattern on the daily chart. The pattern is considered to be bullish until a stock or ETF breaks down from the lower ascending trend line of the formation on higher-than-average volume.

  • On Tuesday, SPRX tested the lower trend line of the pattern and bounced up from the area to regain the eight-day and 21-day exponential moving averages, which is bullish for the short term. If SPRX continues to respect the rising channel pattern and moves north over the next few trading days, the ETF will regain the 50-day simple moving average, which would be bullish for the longer term.
  • Bulls want to see bullish momentum continue, which is indicated by the rising relative strength index making a series of higher highs and higher lows. Bears want to see big bearish volume come in and knock SPRX down from the channel pattern, which could cause a longer-term downtrend to occur.
  • SPRX has resistance above at $22.78 and at $23.50 and support below at $21.86 and at $20.81.
