It seems the stock market decline has caught the attention of the President, as he now is predicting that a trade deal could be reached fast and that Huawei could be part of a deal. Hmm… Well, after all the S&P 500 was 5% its highs off as of yesterday. You didn’t forget the 5% rule, did you?  (Premium content: The 5% Rule Explained)

US Trading Session for May 24

S&P 500 (SPY)

But, the damage has been done and now 2,836 will act as resistance for the S&P 500 on May 24. Again it just makes things tougher for the market, then where were on Wednesday moving forward.

S&P 500 (SPY)

Anyway, it could be an interesting day with a three day weekend. With tweets flying around and comments about trade being made at any moment, I wouldn’t expect any rally to last. So be mindful that it is a holiday weekend.

Intel (INTCWealth Strength IndexINTC is Extremely Down and trending Up)

I’m going to watch these semis very closely today, especially Intel and a few of the equipment makers. Intel managed to bounce off support yesterday around $42.80, closing around $44.50. A stock like Intel rising in a down market is something worth monitoring. I have noted in my premium areas that the semis in some case are approaching oversold levels and it is essential to watch how these stocks trade. One reason is the better North American Billing data just out. I talked about more in my premium room. Chip Data Suggests A Bottom Is Near

For now, $46 is resistance at for Intel.

VISA (V)

Visa has been trying to break out and has struggled. Perhaps today can be the day. Besides what does Visa have to do with China, besides nothing.
