TECH BAN SPREADS BEYOND THE U. S. — PROTECT YOUR PORTFOLIO, MODI WAVE 2.0

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Tech Ban Spreads

Trump ban on supplying technology to Huawei, Chinese telecom giant is spreading beyond the U. S. shores. Companies in Europe and Japan are beginning to halt some shipments to Huawei. The reason is that the underlying technology is American technology. Investors ought to look at protecting their portfolios. Let’s explore with the help of a chart.

Please click here for the annotated chart of Nasdaq 100 ETF (QQQ). Similar conclusions can be drawn from the charts of Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and S&P 500 ETF (SPY). Please note the following:

  • As the chart shows, the support zone is nearby.
  • For the bull market to sustain itself, at best there should be only a minor breach of the support zone shown on the chart.
  • The way machines trade these days, unlike in the past, support zones are often broken, stops of those less knowledgeable are taken out and then the market bounces. This is a typical pattern. However it does not mean that the pattern is repeated every time.
  • The chart shows Arora buy signal given on Christmas Eve which has turned out to be the low of the cycle.
  • The chart shows Arora signal to short sell QQQ or buy inverse ETF (PSQ).
  • The chart shows a failure point for the rally.
  • RSI shows a weak bounce from the oversold condition.
  • The chart shows Arora call to raise cash and hedges on May 6 right near the top.

POTENTIAL NEW TRUMP BANS POSE RISK, FED MINUTES

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Potential New Trump Bans

Chinese companies have been cornering the market for surveillance equipment.  Trump is considering a new ban on five Chinese companies.  Shares of Hikvision and Dahua plunged on the news.  These are not your father’s surveillance equipment companies. They are using new technologies of facial recognition, gait recognition, speech monitoring and artificial intelligence. These companies are setting up networks to track people by their facial features anywhere in the country.

These companies are dominating the globe and lately have been spending a ton of money to expand in the United States.

In our analysis, Trump is on the right track. However the stock market is short sighted and may react badly to new bans. Please pay attention to the ‘What To Do Now’ section below.

BOUNCE FROM OVERSOLD CONDITIONS ON 90-DAY REPRIEVE FOR HUAWEI

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Oversold

The market is technically oversold. Oversold markets tend to bounce on the slightest bit of good news.  This is exactly what is happening this morning.

The excuse is that the U. S. is granting a 90-day reprieve to Huawei and its customers to procure U. S. technology for  maintenance purposes.

Yesterday we wrote:

Based on the emails I have received, first of all caution is warranted against short selling semiconductor stocks at this time. These stocks are oversold. The slightest bit of good news can ignite a rally. There may be opportunities to start trade around positions in semiconductor stocks from the long side.

Semiconductors are showing the biggest bounce this morning in the pre-market.

TRUMP BAN HURTS, INDIAN AND AUSTRALIAN STOCKS JUMP, SURPRISE JAPAN GDP

To gain an edge, this is what you need to know today.

Trump Ban Hurts

Trump ban on Huawei is beginning to seriously hurt U. S. tech stocks.  We will do a separate post.

India

Exit polls show that Modi will win.  Indian stocks are up 2.5% .  In the past, exit polls have not been reliable.  However if the final results are inline with the exit polls, expect significant foreign money to flow into India.  India represents one of the best opportunities over the next few years for investors. India is covered in ZYX Emerging.

Australia

After a surprise victory of Prime Minister Morrison, Australian stocks are jumping 2%.

Unlike India, the trajectory of the Australian stock market depends on exports to China. For this reason, unless the situation changes, the probability of the Australian stock market rocketing up is low until the China situation is resolved.

Japan

GDP in Japan came at 2.1%, this is a big surprise to the upside.  In our analysis at The Arora Report, this is an anomaly.  However please note that Japanese stocks are some of the cheapest stocks in the world.  Japan is covered in ZYX Global.

5G Win

In a remarkable move, the FCC Chairman Pai is recommending the approval of a merger between T-Mobile (TMUS) and Sprint ( S).  The merger was apparently apposed by Department of Justice.  This is a win for 5G as Trump wants the U. S. to lead China.

Momo Crowd And Smart Money In Stocks

The momo crowd is selling stocks in the early trade. Smart money is inactive.

Gold

The momo crowd is selling gold.  Smart money is inactive.

Oil

Oil is rising as OPEC is giving an indication of maintaining production discipline.

The momo crowd is buying oil. Smart money is inactive.

Marijuana

There is no discernable smart money or momo crowd activity in marijuana in the early trade.

Technical Patterns

None of note.

Markets

S&P 500 resistance levels are 2840, 2860 and 2918; support levels are 2800, 2765 and 2740.

DJIA futures are down 171 points.

WHAT TO DO NOW
