Semiconductors HOLDRS (NYSE: SMH) Scores Big Says Market Timer Frank Kollar

December 22, 2009 (FinancialWire) (By Frank Kollar)

Shares for the Semiconductors HOLDRS ETF (NYSE: SMH) reached their pre-bear market highs in 2007, before declining from their $39 high, down to below $15 a share at their bear market lows. Their recovery in 2009 has now reached almost to the 50% retracement level.

Typically the 50% retracement acts as strong resistance and if decisively surpassed, acts as a springboard to the next resistance level at 61.8%.

For SMH, the 50% retracement is at $27.93. SMH gapped higher on Monday, December 21 to close at $27.62, just 1% shy of this level.

If SMH can close above $27.93 in coming days, look for a continued rally to $31.11, the 61.8% retracement level, some 12.6% higher.
