China shares managed to rally the past two days, but still, the index is struggling to get over resistance at 2920. However, the good news is that the short-term downtrend has been broken.

S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 is pointing to a slightly lower opening on May 28 of 1 point. The chart shows that resistance still sits at 2,836 and the downtrend. It likely makes the next big date for the S&P 500 on May 28 when the downtrend and resistance will converge. If the S&P 500 fails to rise above 2,836 today, then it is likely the equity market will continue to drift lower perhaps back to 2,812.  A rise above 2,835 sets up a retest of 2,853.

AMD is rising some this morning after Cowen made some positive comments on the companies new chips shown at Computex.  AMD is also stuck in a downtrend, and every time the stock has tried to break out, it has failed. Should the downtrend be broken, the stock has room to rise to around $29.40.


Tesla (TSLAWealth Strength IndexAAPL is Extremely Up and trending Up)

Tesla needs to hold support at $190 to avoid a much further decline. I continue to think the stock rises back to $250.
