Key #4 of 11: General Electric (GE).  The chart below plots GE daily since 2012 and points out that this US stock market bellwether tested, held, and rebounded from an April 22nd test of major underlying support at $21.8, its 200-day moving average, and that previous similar tests of this major trend proxy in December, November and June 2012 all resulted in the resumption of the bullish trend.


Considering the tight and relatively stable positive correlation between GE (the 11th largest US stock according to market cap) and the S&P 500 over the past 20 years, we are watching GE’s continued reaction to this major underlying support level as an indirect indication of upcoming direction in the US broad market.
