Micron Pulls Back After Breaking Out

NASDAQ:MU   Micron Technology
Semiconductor stocks have been moving lately. Today’s chart focuses on memory-chip producer Micron Technology.

The first pattern to consider is the level around $64.30. MU peaked near this price in November, January, March and April. A breakout followed in mid-May followed by a pullback on Monday. Will buyers step in near the previous high, looking for old resistance to become new support?

Next, you have the series of higher lows over the last three months. That kind of ascending triangle may reflect increasing demand for the stock.

Third, MACD recently turned positive -- a potential sign of improving short-term momentum.

Finally, MU jumped on March 29 as analysts said its long-term demand cycle had bottomed. (The surge came despite weak earnings and revenue.) This month’s rallies in MU and the broader chip space may confirm the industry is back on the upswing. If that’s true, it could give investors another reason to target the $64.30 zone.
