I suggest avoiding all three over the next few months and over the remainder of the year.

Spots of Vulnerability (Semiconductors - Part One)

Was the Close a 'Tell'?

Not that it matters these days in such an "abnormal" and newsy market, but the close was sub-optimal. Often, technicians look at the last 30 minutes as a "tell." The Spyders lost nearly $1.80 and the S&P futures lost about 18 handles in the last hal...
