On Friday the popular averages slipped back to the downside. Broadcom (AVGO -5.6%) led the semiconductor stocks lower. It reduced its outlook due to the trade war with China.

   Above is our three-month chart of the S&P 500 exchange traded fund (SPY). On April 1st the SPY’s 50-day MA pushed above its 200-day MA, a welcome technical signal. However during the early days of last month, Trump fanned the flames of a trade war, inspiring some investors to heed the long established advice to sell in May.

   The May dive was interrupted for a few days during mid-month before crashing to a bottom on June 3. During May both the 50 and 200-day moving averages of the SPY were punctured. Then the early June rally pushed the SPY back above both of them. However the intra-day reversal on Tuesday may have suggested a need for caution. For the rest of the week the 50-day MA provided support amid choppy trading. We’ll want to see if a more directional trend develops next next week.
