Breakdown is anything south of 273.89
Question is what saves it - historically 14SMA on weekly has captured it but this has broken down in May 2021. Instead the 30SMA on weekly have been the saver so that would be the clincher.
If I was a shorting man - 273.89 is the trigger- then down to 14SMA at 279.57, then 269.72 as next resistance and then finally 30SMA at...
SMH. Potential for a wave 5 continuation. Possible reversal points marked using two methods. 1st - Extended 3rd wave tells me that wave 5 may have a similar run to wave 1. 2nd- Distance travelled through waves 1-3 multiplied by .618.

By 4:05 PM EST - a new high off the Ledge @ 15428.50.

Yesterday's break below ~$267.70 puts SMH on track to move lower towards the other side of the lookback periods (ORANGE & RED dotted line) at ~$255-$249.
Only a move back above $267.70 puts the bulls in control.
Given the way the S&P's are trading and the negative tape at large, I favor shorts in SMH.

Of such things big tops are potentially made. This gives the broad market a yellow-light status.
