Macro -SPY

S&P 500 (SPY)

Stocks finished the day lower by over 3% with the S&P 500 close around 2737. The good news is that the index managed to hold on to a support level around 2725. The bad news is that the index fell below the uptrend that was formed off the March lows. It not particularly a great sign for the future of the index over the short-term. It means tomorrow will carry some extra weight, as we will need to see the index recover today’s loss and more to move back into the uptrend. If it should fall below 2,722, it is likely to result in a drop to around 2,636.

Nvidia (NVDA)

Nvidia shares got crushed today, falling by over 6.3%. The stock has now fallen to the other side of the uptrend, and it is broken. Watch out for that drop to $256.

nvidia, nvda


AMD also fell sharply today, and the stock looks like it may be setting up a double top pattern. We will need to watch closely how the stock acts around support of $50.85. That will be a big test.


Netflix (NFLX)

Netflix is trading pretty much flat after it reports about 15 million net subscriber additions in the first quarter. That was a considerable amount. I will have to dig through it some more. It did manage to spike over $450, but it is now back below that level, so let’s use that as resistance for now.

Microsoft (MSFT)

Microsoft broke a significant uptrend, and that could spell trouble for the stock, with a gap to fill down at $153.
