Rithika's Chase Summary

Yellen speaks at noon and there is a 30Y today at 1PM.
Craig posted his concern about TGA liquidity Fri into Mon.
Even if we get rejection up here in SPX + NDX - which wouldn't be a surprise given out extended on D/W timeframes - it is clear AI TECH is on its own planet.
75% new lows. Breadth breakdown in NYSE + net volume of selling under surface is clear.
Sector weakness in value ETFs: XLE, XLF, XME continue as defensives also stall/soften: XLU, XLV, XLP. Really, it is concentration risk in XLK, SMH which is propelling SPY + QQQ higher - UNTIL IT DOESN'T.
Semiconductor and AI theme still seem to be strong in the market, riding on the back of AVGO earnings
No volatility in the market, next level 11.17 then 10.60 in time  
Yields are weak while DXY trying to have an intraday bounce
QQQ needs below 476 for gapfill
IWM gap at 200.8 filling
EBAY &  ANET have nice swing long look breakout potential with AMZN
MU, WDC + STX continue higher as part of AI TECH ECOSYSTEM.
MNST + CELH continue lower as part of my beverage short ecosystem ;-)
SMCI best chase long > 800; TSLA best chase short < 186
IWM/NYSE best shorts on market selling under the surface.
AVGO 1638 pivot above that 1800
TSLA above 186 can see 195, 200 stop: 184 has to hold or else we fill gap to 180.5
NVDA approaching 130 next 135
MNST rolling steadily towards 48
CELH 59.89 short support below that could overshoot to 56.6
AFRM calls coming in with time, needs above 37.95 for 41
MSFT approaching 445 then 449 above 442
SMCI 834 approaching then 850, 874
