The hope for new all-time high will be postponed as a new trade war between U.S-EU loom. DJIA might continue lower today and this week to test the top of the blue channel or 26,000 support level. Not much to expect on the upside and traders might want to monitor the trade war development now.
Intel Corp (INTC)
INTC could become the target of short positions as the share prices rejected from the daily SMA 200. $50.00 resistance is not far from the current level but further bearish pressure will trigger bearish trend continuation. Traders could take a short position with a stop above SMA 200 or $50.00.
