With all the wild price swings, the charts feel harder to read this week.
AMD fell back to support around $29.40, and $27.25 seems like the next likely stop for the stock.
Amazon is holding on to the uptrend, and that level needs to continue to hold or the stock risks a further decline to around $1620.
Facebook has been struggling recently, even before Friday’s sell-off, and now $173 seems like the next level to look for.
Micron appears to be rolling over, with the next significant level to watch at $42 and then $38.70.
Bank of America (BAC)
Bank of America may continue to drift lower as the yield curve remains under pressure, with $25.75 as the next significant level of support.
JD.com failed once again at $31.50, and there is still a gap to fill around $27.40.
Meanwhile, Alibaba may be on its way back to $151.
