The major trend, which had been supported by the 50-day moving average, was broken in late January. Since then, EEM found support at its 200-day moving average and picked up significant accumulation starting in February. 

In late March, this ETF issued a trading buy signal when the 20-day moving average crossed above the 50-day. And on Thursday, EEM broke out violently on high volume leaving a small gap behind. 

If the breakout is genuine, the gap may not be closed, and the fund could quickly run to $48 to $50, which is our target for a short-term trade.
