Off we go, into the wild blue yonder

The Airline Index is starting to gain some altitude, but you may want to keep your seatbelt fastened in case we run into some turbulence.

Amex Airline Index (XAL.X) 60-Minute Chart

This morning XAL took off, but is currently in a holding pattern at 139. Should prices continue to climb, I see three points of possible turbulence. The first is the one-month downtrend prices have been in. The second is the previous highs around 141.50. Lastly, I see the 200-period moving holding prices down. Luckily there are emergency exits located at the front and rear of the plane in the form of the 50-period moving average and the up trend line.
