Semiconductors (SMH) Rally Trades Into Critical Resistance!

One of the bull market leaders of the past 14 years is trading into critical resistance.

And what happens next could decide the next turn for tech stocks.

That’s right, we are talking about Semiconductors… again. We have routinely highlighted key moments across various time frames for the Semiconductors Sector ETF (SMH) because this sector has been a stalwart of the bull market.

That said, price briefly broke out above the channel before falling back into the channel (after a bearish reversal). And it is now retesting the upper end of the trend channel at (1).
