China Plus the Internet: CWEB ETF Keeps on Climbing | ETF Trends

Almost three years ago, the Direxion Daily CSI China Internet Bull 2X Shares (CWEB) reached a high of $69.08. Fast forward to today, and the ETF is at $81.11. Momentum is obviously on the side of CWEB, and the fund could keep on climbing.

CWEB seeks daily investment results equal to 200% of the daily performance of the CSI Overseas China Internet Index, which is designed to measure the performance of the investable universe of publicly traded China-based companies whose primary business or businesses are in the Internet and Internet-related sectors.

The fund has been approaching a pivotal price point of retracing back to that high in 2018. Once there, CWEB broke loose. On January 8, the fund reached a high of $69.79 and has risen 16% since, en route to a new high since its inception back in November 2016.

The current reading on the relative strength index (RSI) of 71.39 confirms the momentum.

The 50-day moving average appears to be a key level of support looking. On July 22, 2020, the golden cross made itself known when the 50-day moving average moved past the 200-day moving average.

A stochastic relative strength index (StochRSI) reading shows a level of 1.00, which confirms the high momentum. A moving average convergence divergence (MACD) indicator has the exponential moving average (EMA) above the signal line: more confirmation of strong momentum.

CWEB is up 30% within the past month and almost 50% within the past three months.
