3 Charts That Say The SOX Semiconductor Index Is Topping

The Semiconductor Index (INDEXNASDAQ: SOX) looks like it’s in trouble from a macro perspective.

Several techniques are pointing to a major SOX Semiconductor top here. Let’s elaborate.

The Semiconductors are a member of the Tech universe and they are breaking down, making lower highs and lower lows relative to the Nasdaq Composite (INDEXNASDAQ: .IXIC).

The $SOX index has reached a Fibonacci extension at 1.618%, and the elliptical Fibonacci curve drawn is at 3.618. That is the Golden Mean to the Power of 3.

Notice how twice as it approached the 3.618 ring, price retreated? At times, in declines, price hugs that ring and follows the curve down.
