Market Vectors Coal ETF (NYSE: KOL ) - This exchange-traded fund (ETF) seeks to replicate the price and yield performance of the Stowe Coal Index. The fund, which normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in equity securities in the coal industry, bottomed several years ago at under $10.

The Trade of the Day last recommended KOL on Dec. 22, at around $44, after the ETF traded up to new highs on a breakaway gap with heavy volume.

Now, following a consolidation at just under its 20- and 50-day moving averages below $48, KOL broke out again, this time from $50 with a new target of $56.

Hold KOL if you own it, and buy it as a long-term investment if you don't. Short-term traders should consider buying the KOL May 52 Calls at $1.75 with a target of $4.
