S&P 500 (SPY)

Stocks are pointing to a lower opening continuing from yesterday late day pullback. I worry that the S&P 500 pulls back and retest the break out of the downtrend back down to 2,836. It wouldn’t be the worst case scenario as it would also provide the index an opportunity to retest a new uptrend.

Nvidia (NVDAWealth Strength IndexNVDA is Moderately Flat and trending Up)

Nvidia is giving back all of it’s after hour gains last night after a less than stellar conference call noting it would not provide full-year guidance. Regardless, I continue to think this stock is heading to $150.

Nvidia, nvda

Alibaba (BABA)

Alibaba is falling this morning on the weaker yuan, and as long as the currency continues to weaken this stock is likely to continue to drop.

alibaba, baba
