Make no mistake; semiconductors are an essential leader within the technology sector. They lead the market higher—and lower.

This year’s bear market is a great example as the VanEck Semiconductor ETF (NASDAQ:SMH) began underperforming in late 2021 and led the market lower into 2022.

But tech stocks are bouncing, and SMH is attempting to head even higher.

So today, we look at a long-term monthly chart of SMH to highlight a key price point that may decide if this rally has legs.

Is the recent bounce the start of a new bull leg higher or a rally in a bear market?

Perhaps this dual Fibonacci retracement level with tip investors off. As you can see, the Semiconductors ETF (SMH) declined to about the 38.2% retracement (of the 2009 low to 2021 high) and has rallied back to the 23.6% level. At the same time, it is testing the 38.2% retracement of the 2021 high to 2022 low. These are occurring at the same time at each point (1).

SMH might resolve the debate of new bull or bear market bounce by what it does from here. Stay tuned!

Have you been buying Apple? Haha. I think you analyze crypto to determine chip demand. Nvidia won't be releasing affordable cards until 2023 so you have to buy up the used/obsolete cards during Christmas.
