Daily Market Commentary: Semiconductors Post New Swing Low

In an omen as to what may follow for the Nasdaq there was a new swing low in the Semiconductor Index.  Monday's gap down of just over 1% undercut the March swing low and left it with a 'Death Cross', but it finished above important support of 395.  Stochastics are oversold which sets up nicely for a bounce tomorrow, with a target of the 20-day MA.


The Nasdaq was left with a gap below the 50-day MA on lighter volume, but it remains 70 points above 2,900. Neither is it oversold. But it also reverses the breakout of 3,000.


The S&P is holding above the April swing low and is not oversold either.


While the Russell 2000 is caught somewhere in the middle.


With the exception of the Semiconductor index there is probably another day's selling in the tank before markets reached an oversold - and possible bounce point.
