Tech Indices Breakout
3 years ago

At some point, semiconductors will emerge from the doldrums. Sure, Semis could take a big haircut: the Philly index is up 350% from its 2009 low (ahead of the 285% gain for the S&P), yet still well off its highs. But to look for a 'lucky if prices only drop 50%,' misses what a canary-in-the-mine sector like Semis has done in a weak economic environment.

Daily Market Commentary: Semiconductors Advance
3 years ago
If buyers keep a bid under Semiconductors then it's not slowing. Shorts may be happy to watch a break before getting aggressive: a 'bull trap' (i.e. a closing break above 652, followed by a close below 652 on higher volume) could prove opportune. However, as things stand now, bulls have the advantage.
