Down, Up, Down, Up...The U.S. stock market is trendless with no memory from day to day. Some on our site (e.g., Rev Shark) and elsewhere believe shorting is an "exercise in futility." I say, respectfully, that this is a wonderful two-way market in which money is to be made on both the long and short side. I further have opined that the market might be in a transition from bull market to something else this year (we will see whether that forecast is correct over the next few months!). And So Is the Bond Market Trendless -- though we seem to be in a 2.10%-2.30% range on the 10-year U.S. Note yield, for now. Banks Continue to Be Among the Leaders -- This is my favorite sector on a reward vs. risk basis. The Spread Between Taxable and Non Taxable Yields Narrowed Today -- I posted on the possibility of a narrowing last week and, again, today. Muni bond funds are flourishing despite a near $2 drop in TLT (and rise in rates; the 10-year yield has increased by 5 basis points to 2.18%). Takeover Activity Continues -- As I pointed out about the proposed Broadcom (BRCM) merger, the deals no longer make much economic sense at around 20x EBITDA. This sort of valuation in mergers is symptomatic of an aging bull market -- and perhaps an aging economic recovery.
Several developments could help to support the tech-heavy index in coming weeks.
Look around: A hike by the Fed would be bad for business.

Looks like a pretty flat opening to begin May's last trading day. The chip sector's big acquisition frenzy continues, as it appears that Intel (INTC) is on the verge of acquiring Altera (ALTR) for $15 billion once their standstill agreement expires on June 1.
Meanwhile, look for jobless claims and another round of earnings in the U.S.
And four other things you need to know now.
Energy shares slide; Broadcom is the day's big winner.
