The powerful group actually got a big boost last week when Intel Corporation (INTCAnnounced that it would spend $ 20 billion on two new chip manufacturers in Arizona. Intel shares jumped to a 20-year high, dropping the 10-week streak before recovering to make modest gains.
The biggest unknown is the rise in the stock market. If it continues to rally, ASML stocks and other chip plays have a good chance of operating. But if the stock market resumes choppy work or continued selling, expect harder times. This is why it is so important to be at a healthy and sustainable rise in the market.

Market Rise Analysis
The stock market rally showed a positive overall move, thanks to some delayed championships, but it was still a mixed bag.
The Dow Jones tested its 21-day exponential average on Thursday. The S&P 500 closed below 21 days on Wednesday and briefly cut from the 50-day streak in the next session. But by the end of the week, the Dow and the Standard & Poor’s indexes closed, all-time record lows.
Friday’s strong Dow and S&P 500 price action on a volume higher than Thursday was strong enough to be follow-up days. However, since the market entered on Friday as an “uptrend under pressure” in exchange for an outright correction, it is not an indicator of loss at the moment. However, due to the shaky market market, large gains from high volume are very welcome.
The Russell 2000 index fell below the 21-day and 50-day line last week and approached its lows in March before bouncing back. The Small Cap Index closed just above the 50 day line, but is still suffering big weekly losses.
The Nasdaq, despite its large intraday volatility, was ultimately the week with the least repercussions of the four major indices. Last week it started retracing the 21 days, but quickly hit resistance at the 50 day line and was sold off. After recovering from Thursday’s lows, the Nasdaq ended with a modest loss. Nasdaq’s strong gains on Friday came due to lighter volumes as well.
Ultimately, the technology heavy compound remains below the 21 and 50 day moving averages. As long as this is the case, there will be a question mark over the entire stock market rally.
Despite the volatility of the general indices, the individual stocks and sectors were often more volatile. Even when the general trend is sideways, big moves during the day and week make it difficult to make major headway.
There are enough good measures to attract investors. And more than enough to get rid of them. This is the hallmark of a volatile market.
If the market can have more powerful moves, or simply slowly advance in the tame movement, then buyable stocks are likely to boom today. But this is the big card.
