Reason For Trade: Cleared the 50, 10 and 100 DMAs on the daily chart. On the weekly chart, over 20.61 confirms a base going back to the beginning of 2015. The 2014 low was 20.13. Possible to see this bottom longer term with a potential move to 23.00 or higher. Our stop is under the 50 DMA.

Existing Position: RSX Long ½ 17.26 ATR: .50

Name of Instrument: RSX Daily Market Vectors-Russia

Current Price: 19.07

Trailing Stop: 17.74 with a 2 minute time confirm

Reason For Trade: After basing throughout December 2014 into February 2015, it had a phase change to recovery, corrected and crossed back over the 50 DMA again, only this time with a positive slop. The buy stop triggered was because it also cleared the 100 DMA. Our stop is under the 50 DMA with a great risk/reward potential to 20.75 or higher

***FILLED!! First Profit Target: 18.67 for ½ off

Second Profit target: 19.74 for another ½ of balance

Name of Instrument: SPDR S&P Regional Bank

Current Price: 40.97

****Raised: Sell Stop: 39.67 with 2 minute time confirm
