    S&P 500 Sector SPDR Preview: What to Watch This Week

    Understanding what levels and trends are important can lead to successful trading.In financial markets, there are certain price levels that are more significant than others with regards to the amount of supply and demand that exists at them. In addition, prices are always doing one of three things. They are either going up, going down or staying the same. If you understand these dynamics it would help your trading or investing strategies.Don't waste your time with things like Gann Theory, Harmonic Patterns or Elliot Waves. These things are like Bigfoot and UFOs … fun to talk about but hardly credible. I can tell you that in the 20 years I spent as a hedge fund trader, not once did I ever hear a portfolio manager or trader talk about them. What do successful traders look at? Important levels and trends.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 7 Best Long-Term Stocks for 2019 And Beyond I think that the S&P 500 will be neutral to slightly down this week. This is because many of the economic sectors that make up the S&P 500 are overbought and are at resistance levels.S&P 500 SPDR: The SPYs are overbought and near levels that were resistance in the past. There will probably be resistance around the $293 level because it is where the top was in September and October.If they head lower there will probably be support around $280. The $280 level is important because it was resistance during last March, June and again from October through December. It was also support throughout last July.Technology SPDR: The XLKs are overbought and testing important resistance. There is resistance around the $76 level because this is where the highs were last August through October. If they head lower there will probably be support around the $72 level because it was the top of the recent range.Financials SPDR: The XLFs hit resistance around the $27 level. They are slightly overbought. The levels between $27 and $27.50 have been the top of the range since November.Healthcare SPDR: The XLVs are at the bottom of the range that they have been in since February. The action over the past two days has been very weak. If they head lower there may be support around $86.50. It was the top in March and the bottom in October of 2018.Consumer Discretionary SPDR: The XLYs testing resistance around the October highs. They are very overbought, so there will probably be some consolidation or profit-taking. If they head lower there will probably be support around $111 because it was a resistance level from early December through March.Industrials SPDR: The XLIs broke their short-term downtrend and are consolidating around the $77 level. Longer-term, there may be resistance around the $80 level because it is where the highs were in January and September of 2018. There may be support again around $71 because it is where the lows were in late 2017 and the first half of 2018.Consumer Staples SPDR: The XLPs are testing resistance around the levels that were the highs at the end of last year. They are slightly overbought. They found support around the $50 level during the selloff at the end of December. This level was the low in 2016, and the top of the range throughout 2015.Consumer Staples SPDR Long-Term: The XLPs recently found support again around the very important $50 level. This level was the low in 2016, and the top of the range throughout 2015. It was also the top of the range during this past May.Energy SPDR: The XLEs seem to be breaking the resistance around the $66.50 level. This level has been resistance for the past two months. There is resistance around this level because it was support in early 2018.Energy SPDR Long-Term: The XLEs could be breaking resistance around the $66.50 level. There is resistance here because it was support a year ago. The $78 level is important long-term resistance. The levels around $55 are important long-term support.Materials SPDR: The XLBs are testing resistance around the $58 level. This level was the bottom of the range from last June through September. They are very overbought. The last two times that they were this overbought, in September and February, a selloff followed.Utilities SPDR: The XLUs broke their recent uptrend after becoming overbought and are consolidating. There is support around the $57 level because this is where the highs were in December. In September and then again in late December and early January they found support around the $52 level.As of this writing, Mark Putrino did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Micron Stock Finally Gets a Break on an Earnings Report

    Micron (NYSE:MU) stock has often been the poster child for the technology trade for the last year or so. This is definitely most true for the chip sector -- when it moves, the rest follow.Source: Shutterstock Last year, when Wall Street sentiment was at its worst, investors sold MU stock down to where its trailing price to earnings ratio fell to 2x. That was ridiculously cheap. At the time, sellers had their reasons to do so. Meanwhile, I sold puts against their fears to generate income.But today, there is a longer-term opportunity for the stock into year-end.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis year, things are much different than in 2018. MU stock came into its earnings event up 26% year-to-date. It is even outperforming the VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (NYSEARCA:SMH) which is lagging 6 points behind. The clear champion still remains Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) especially after headlines sent it soaring this week. MU Stock After EarningsLast night, Micron report earnings and the stock is up over 6% this morning. Going into the event, investors were bracing for the worst. The industry has yet to shake the meme that they have serious inventory and pricing pressure. Maybe this negative notion will start dying this week.Management reported a decent quarter where they beat both the top and bottom lines. The expectations were low enough that they did not disappoint traders from what was already a bad setup. Investors ignored the big sequential drop in revenues. * 5 Cloud Stocks to Help Your Portfolio Fly The CEO recognized that the environment is indeed difficult but also reassured them that MU stock is executing well on plans and that things will start to improve in the second half of 2019, including the average selling prices of DRAM. This is the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, and therein lies the opportunity.I trust that management knows its business best, and I bet that in the long term, there is more upside potential than downside risk. The globe is aggressively migrating toward everything being electronic, so the demand on technology products and services will continue to increase exponentially. MU and the rest of the gang will have enough business to feed their stock growth for years to come, starting this year. After all aren't we all agog over the advents of Artificial Intelligence, 5G and autonomous driving?For those who want to own MU for the long-term returns, this is as good a place to enter as any. The stock has momentum and the company just told us that things are going to improve into the year end.But even those who prefer to actively trade it for the shorter-term profits have an opportunity unfolding here.Going into the earnings, Micron stock's short-term range had tightened into a point. This energy needs to disperse, and that usually results in a big move. If the bulls can hold their greens this week then they could target $44 per share.This will be an area of resistance. However $44 is can also be the neckline for a second buy program that would target $52 per share. This would closed the open gap from last September. There will be more resistance zones along the way, like between $46 and $47 per share, but if the stock market in general continues higher, MU has a good chance at sustaining the rally.In short, the CEO told Wall Street that the DRAM crash is almost over and that the chip demand growth is going to improve. So even though Micron stock often falls out of favor, according to management, this time the upside potential is greater than the downside risk.Perhaps the bears got too comfortable shorting this cheap chip stock and will soon be caught in a squeeze. Cheap valuation and strong fundamentals will prevail in the long run.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.
