Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) broke the 200EMA but was unable to close over this level. Despite the bearish market action, the stock performed well relative to the whole market. Technical chart shows a nice bullish MACD cross combined with a strong bounce off the 20-day EMA. This chart tells you that the place to be in INTC is on the long side.
