    Over the past month the S&P 500 is flat. No big deal. Over that same time period Brazil ETF EWZ is up 7.5%! Is a long-term trend change at hand in Brazil? Unless you live under a rock, you are well aware that BRIC countries have had a rough time for the past few years. Is this drastic under-performance by the BRIC countries finally about to change?

    The first step for Brazil is to continue breaking overhead resistance and close above its 200MA by a solid margin. During the decline EWZ has made runs to push above its 200MA by a decent margin, only to run out of gas and create another lower high.

    End of the Road for fhe Russell 2000?

    Brazil isn’t the only market attempting a breakout. Thailand is working on breaking resistance from this pennant pattern and remains inside of its rising channel. The inset chart reflects that Thailand has performed much better than EEM over the past few years. Premium Members are owners of THD, as the Power of the Pattern looks positive inside of this rising channel and it is working on an upside pennant breakout.
