SPY keeps playing with levels. Last week it couldn't build on strength and sellers couldn't keep it below levels. We'll see how this week starts. $413.64 is Friday's high. See if it gets and stays above. $414.54 is above. The bears can't growl so loud this week unless we get a hard close below $408.64.
QQQ's hit a high of $327.17 last week as some specific setups worked. The 8 day is key active support. We'll see if this sector can keep getting flows. It needs to hold the $322ish area to stay special.
Now let's dig into 7 tech leaders:
AAPL continues to digest post-earnings. On Friday if felt vulnerable but it held the earnings gap. If you are super active, make sure it holds $170.76-$171 support. If it doesn't, it can get choppier and harder to sit with. $174.59 is key active resistance.
MSFT remains Very Impressive. Whenever you think it gets vulnerable, it holds the 8 day. It needs to hold the $306 area. If that holds, perhaps it tries to get going again with $313 as pivot resistance.
GOOGL was a big focus for us last week. I got big around $107ish and it hit $117.92 Friday. I did sell my stock and switched to some call as it seemed stretched. Loop Capital called it a hold today. Let.s see how it digests. Holding $114.41-$116 would keep momentum.
AMZN was another focus for us. I got pretty big in the $105 area and then sold the rest into the $113+ area last week. Now, we’ll see if it can build a bull flag above $109ish to give us more opportunities.
META is trying to set up again after hitting a high of $244 a few weeks back. Some are long vs. the $229 gap pivot. If it can get and stay above $238, maybe it gets some active momentum back again. Loop Capital raised it this morning.
TSLA couldn't hold the Friday gains even with Elon saying they will have a new Twitter CEO faster than some thought. I did sell most of mine into the $177 gap fill. Then it failed to hold $174 with a low of $166ish. It's flattish this morning. It’s hard to tell what’s next. If it breaks and stays below $166ish, the bears will growl loud. I'm just going to watch it for now.
NVDA is trying to hold the 8 day. This tech market leader can give clues to the week. It needs to hold the $280 area. Otherwise it can see downside. A move above $292ish tells us we can still have some special moves. Friday's high is $287ish.
