Tencent (700 HK)(TCEHY)

Tencent, the big technology company in Asia, has been getting struck hard. Why do we care? Remember, this was one of the stocks that were the first to bottom and begin to rise in the winter. For now, the stock MUST hold support at 333 HKD.



The Australian equity market doesn’t seem too concerned about a trade war hurting the China economy. The index just reached a record high. China happens to be Australia’s biggest trade pattern, accounting for $74 billion or 29.2% of the countries exports.

Hey look at that, the US exports about $150 billion a year to China, about Double Australia. However, the US economy is nearly $20 trillion, and Australia’s GDP is about $1.3 trillion. Who is China more Important too?

S&P 500 (SPY)

Stocks are picking up from where they left off on Friday with the S&P 500 indicating to open lower on May 20. Again, 2,836 is the big level that we must continue to watch. Based on the Futures, the S&P 500 should open above that region of support. A drop below that level setups a retest of the lows from last Monday around 2,812.

AT 2,812 the S&P 500 is about 5% off its highs, and that was the region we saw the trade talk turn more positive.

However, I hope that the trade talk gets out of the headlines and soon.
