Stocks are pointing to a lower opening on April 13, with the S&P 500 futures pointing to a decline of about 1%. At this point, we are starting to trade outside of the rising wedge I pointed out over the weekend, and that could suggest stocks have further room to fall today and this week. A drop below 2,730 would get the index moving quickly to 2,630.

S&P 500, spx


We can see that the same pattern also formed in the South Korea KOSPI and the index also fell through the lower trend line.



NXP Semiconductor is falling today after Evercore downgraded the stock to inline from outperform with a price target of $100, due to the company’s exposure to the auto industry. The stock reached resistance on Friday at $96.30 with the potential for a gap fill back to $76.
