Hong Kong HSI
Hong Kong jumped over 2% on June 10, following better than expected China trade data. The index crossed a critical level of resistance at 27,345. It could set up a rebound to 28,160.
US Trading For June 10
The big news today, tariffs with Mexico have been suspended.
United Technologies and Raytheon are merging. They say it is a merger of equals, but yet UTX shareholders will get 57% of the new company, keep the CEO, and have eight board seats. That compares to Raytheon shareholders getting 43% of the company and seven board seats. Doesn’t sound equal to me, so why isn’t Raytheon acquired with a significant premium?
As a Raytheon shareholder, I can’t say I’m thrilled with the terms of the deal. I have owned Raytheon since October 2016, so it may serve an excuse to take my profits and go.
S&P 500 (SPY)
S&P 500 is rising on June 10, with SPY ETF pointing to an increase in the pre-market. If the SPY can manage to rise to $289.25, it sets up a potential move to $291.50.
AMD continues to rally, rising another 2.5% on June 10. If the rally holds, it sets up a rise $34.50.
Microsoft is rising and has is likely to move towards the upper end of its trading range at roughly $134.
Square is rising too, and it is facing a steep overhead downtrend around $69.60. We will soon find out if Square is breaking out or breaking down.
Intel is trading above resistance at $46, and now the stock could rise back to roughly $48.
Bank of America (BAC)
Bank of America is approaching a breakout at $28, which could help the bank rise to around $29.50. Just watch the Treasury spreads, wider spreads means Bank stocks go up, narrow spreaders means the stocks go down. That simply for now.
Good Luck Today.
