Give about the -- after bouncing sharply off the mid November -- stocks kind -- turning searching for direction and investors seemingly wait for some kind of all clear signal to get him.
-- missing the opportunity if you're doing that just biding your time.
Let's bring in an expert Chris for a on mr.
-- its research partners managing director he could explain all of this says he's head of technical analysis and a Fox Business exclusive.
Now some people say look I want to -- mcdonalds I want to own apple -- don't wanna on apple whatever.
Really you couldn't get some serious -- -- looking at levels correct from the S&P which I guess is just kept coming off its worst week in nearly I guess a month.
A month and what we think about.
Where the last three weekly -- have been 141614181413.
We haven't made a ton of progress over the last three weeks after that -- -- got off those mid November lows.
So what we're seeing this price action just churning investors unsure a lot of indecision that there -- quote what I -- but what's actually know situation.
If the price action has been a bit more bullish than just the levels would help us for as much as apple is down it's impressive that stocks haven't sold off more -- Okay that's an excellent point folks -- look at apple you might panic a little bit but the fact is at 1426.
You tell me.
There -- two levels there's a resistance her.
And then there's a support resistance is at the top the supports -- the floor what's the resistance what's the in the ceiling we kind of a merged into here is 1440 resistance which marked the top of the rally about a week ago when it breaks through that is that a signal to investors and if so up like getting up through that will be a positive signal that you can probably retest of September highs near 1480.
On the commerce side of that if you look at where support is it's been about 141405.
So -- -- that the odds are higher that you retest where -- -- Several months back -- get out of -- gets near that level.

Which show industrials' -- -- emerging markets those are at eight month highs -- his suggestion that there's more room to run there's more energy and fuel for these.
To continue to do well I think you can see him continue to work here when you think about.
-- the S and -- that right now still below -- September highs -- emerging markets above their September -- so the message from higher beta groups like yen.
Has been stronger than that of the broader market we think that's a pretty good signal for risk.
So we would continue to -- and we -- -- industrials.
He -- -- -- general what do you -- what -- you avoiding quickly retail don't like it eight trade's worst in the tape.
If you look at names like -- or -- senior -- Tiffany they all have one thing in common.
