On the downside, there is an intermediate-term support at 185.91 followed by another zone of support from 171.44  159.75.

For the bears to regain control of the intermediate-term, we would need to see a close below 131.42.
askSlim Sum of the Evidence:

KLAC is in a short-term corrective period in an overall very positive cycle pattern. We see a likelihood that the stock will test the intermediate-term supports beginning at 186 by mid-August before entering a much more positive period in the fall of this year.
