In our previous report dated 02 May 2019, the share price of NVIDIA (NVDA) had tumbled as expected and hit the downside target/support of 153.40 on 20 May 20019, click here for a recap.

It has continued to inch downwards and printed a low of 132.60 on 03 Jun 2019 before it staged a recovery of 18% to print a recent high of 157.33 on 20 Jun 2019 assisted by an increasing dovish monetary policy stance adopted by the Fed. In the coming few weeks, the focus will shift back to the progress on the on-going trade tensions between U.S. and China as NVDA is one of the U.S. key semiconductors firms that its operations will be affected significantly if the trade tensions continue to escalate. Paramount will be this week G20 summit on 28 to 29 Jun where U.S President Trump will meet with China President Xi on the side-lines to discuss about matters related to the U.S-Sino trade relations.

Key technical elements

  • The recovery 18% seen in NVDA from its 03 Jun 2019 low of 132.60 has taken on the form of a “bearish flag” configuration coupled with a lower average volume seen in the past 15 days. These observations suggest the recovery is a potential “dead cat bounce” within its medium-term downtrend in place since 10 Apr 2019.
  • The daily RSI oscillator has tested and retreated from a significant corresponding resistance at the 55 level.
  • The key medium-term resistance stands at 163.90 which is defined by the former ascending support from 24 Dec 2018 low and the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the previous decline from 10 Apr high to 03 Jun 2019 low.
  • Relative strength analysis from the ratios of NVDA against its industry sector (PHLX Semiconductor SOXX) and the U.S. benchmark stock index (S&P 500) have continued to exhibit medium-term weakness/underperformance.

Key Levels (1 to 3 weeks)

Intermediate resistance: 157.33

Pivot (key resistance): 163.90

Supports: 147.06, 131.60 & 124.50

Next resistance: 192.83


If the 163.90 key medium-term pivotal resistance is not surpassed and a break below 147.06 (the lower boundary of the “bearish flag”) is likely to reinforce the start of another potential downleg to target 131.60 support with a maximum limit set at 124.50 (the 24 Dec 2018 major swing low).

On the other hand, a clearance with a daily close above 163.90 invalidates the bearish scenario for an extension of the corrective rebound towards the next resistance at 192.83.
