The Philly Semiconductor Index (SOX) is still above its up trend line (in red) from the lows, but remains one of the weaker areas of tech. Money flow score (green line, bottom) continues dropping as the Index retraces back towards trend. The RTR sector technical algorithm score (burgundy line, middle) is also near the neutral 0 level. Resistance is near the 560 level.

The 492 level on the SOX has been tested and held intra day twice in February. A break below that could cause further deterioration and although the market rallied off its lows yesterday the SOX did not bounce much from its lows.
