Will The Semiconductors Sector (SMH) Lead The EV Market Higher?

It is well known that supply chain disruptions in Taiwan and other leading countries which produce semi-chips for computers/Electric Vehicles have been struggling to keep up with demand.

Therefore, if the EV space is looking to extend higher, it will need semiconductor supply companies to step up its game.

Knowing how intertwined chips are to the EV space, we can keep a close watch on VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (SMH) to gauge underlying support in the EV industry.

From a charting standpoint, SMH has been hovering over its 50-Day moving average and is not far from new all-time highs last seen in February.

If we expect SMH to pick up the pace, we can also watch for sentiment to improve in EV stocks such as Tesla (TSLA), Nio (NIO), and Lucid Motors (CCIV).

Specifically, TSLA is the most interesting of the three as the others have begun to move up while TSLA has been consolidating around its 200-DMA.

Additionally, if TSLA can grasp a consistent hold over its 200-DMA and SMH heads towards or clears its high of $258.59, this could be a great setup in a company known to make large moves once it gets started.
