Most of last week’s price action can be summarized in one sentence: tech stocks continue to outperform the rest of the market while cryptos are outperforming the tech sector. 

Semis are hovering near all-time highs – SMH, NVDA.  AMD, AMAT, and LRCX are setting up for a potential breakout. 

Software stocks have been extremely strong – not only cybersecurity but also application and infrastructure software names – IGV, SKYY, ZS, OKTA, S, NET, MDB, WDAY, TEAM, U, SNOW, CRWD, BILL, SHOP, LSPD, etc.

The payment stocks – PYPL and SQ are both working on new bases. PYPL seems ready to close its earnings gap and push towards 300. SQ is setting up for a breakout near 275.

Covid-related stocks are perking up again. The mRNA vaccines – MRNA and BNTX finished on a high note last Friday. The testing stocks like DGX, TMO, HOLX, QDEL, have been slowly climbing as well. Health pass stock YOU is also setting up for a potential bounce.
