Market rally analysis
The stock market rally is still under severe pressure. The major indices were mixed during the week, and haven’t pulled back after the previous big and ugly week off.
The Dow rose modestly for the week after testing the 50-day line several times.
The S&P 500 fell modestly, but that masked some significant volatility for the week. The benchmark just regained its 50-day moving average on Wednesday. On Thursday, the S&P 500 and other major indices fell to their worst levels in weeks, but closed lower.
On Friday, the S&P 500 rose slightly, but below the 50-day line. Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight Fund (RSP), with less weight for tech giants like Apple, they rallied on Friday to regain the 50-day mark.
Nasdaq was the big laggard, with Tesla and Nvidia stock being notable laggards. But there was widespread weakness in growth stocks, especially among chip names after weak results and guidance from the memory chip maker micron technology (mo).
The S&P 500 needs to regain the 50-day line, but that would only be a first step.
It is not clear whether the market will bounce, head towards lower lows, or move sideways erratically for an extended period. The latter may be more likely until there is some clarity about when and where the Fed will stop raising interest rates, and whether the economy will slide into a clear recession.
While growth stocks like Enphase and Celsius are worth watching, many medical stocks and other defensive growth paths are still holding out. Metals, mining, industry, housing and some energy plays are doing relatively well.
What are you doing now
The stock market simulated an upswing during the week, with the technical picture not changing significantly. Apart from the Dow Jones, the major indices are below the major moving averages. Leading stocks have been hard to hold on to, at best.
Investors should have minimal exposure and be wary of adding new deals. Don’t get excited on a strong open or even a bullish session or two.
Keep your watchlists up-to-date. Lots of stocks are created or prepared from a variety of sectors. Some names show strong relative strength but don’t have a clear buying point. It’s okay now.
In the meantime, spend some time reviewing your trades over the past year, including your top gainers and losers, and trades you didn’t make but wish you had. Were you following your rules, and were your rules sound?
