The S&P 500 and Russell 2000 both jumped above the 50-day moving averages, with the former surpassing recent and recent highs just shy of the 200-day moving average. Leading this bullish trend, the Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped from its 200-day line to its best level since August peaks.
The Nasdaq, the obvious slowdown in the market’s rally thus far, jumped past the 50-day line. Amazon, a lot of rickety big companies, and cloud stocks led the way, while Nvidia and other chips continued their recent rally, but mostly below buying grounds.
It was a Thursday procedure later Follow-up day On all major indices, with significant gains in trading volume on the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq. This provides more confidence in the stock market’s rally.
The CPI inflation report was just one data point, but it was what the Fed wanted and needed to see. Notably, there will be a few weeks before the next wave of Fed monetary reports. This points to a favorable backdrop for a market rally, at least during that period.
Positive follow-up would be the Nasdaq moving decisively above the 50-day line, breaking its October highs above 11200. The S&P 500’s rally above the 200-day would be a very strong signal.
There were not many blue-chips in their positions on Thursday. Some of the strong names seem to stretch, while Thursday’s big winners were mostly broken techs like Google that need a lot of repair work.
It is not clear which groups will lead the market’s rise. But there are a lot of interesting groups and sectors.
Pharmaceuticals such as biotech and health insurers, which led the market rally, ruled out big gains on Thursday or pulled back as riskier growth names were favored. Is this just a passing picture?

A wide range of housing-related stocks, including builders, suppliers and retailers, are liquidating bases or moving above long-term moving averages or trend lines. It includes Dr. Horton (DHI), Tempur Seely (TPX) and stock BLDR.
Some other retailers, along with many restaurants and some consumer plays, are showing strength from Crocs (CROX) to me wing stop (wing) to GM stock. Some financial, lithium, solar, agricultural and steel stocks also look good, including steel dynamics (STLD), Albemarle (ALB), CF . Industries (CF), Charles Schwab (SCHW) and ENPH stock.
Some infrastructure companies are located in or near the purchasing areas, including Quanta Services (PWR).
Energy stocks, which didn’t do much on Thursday, may continue to lead.
Network stocks look strong, including Digi International (DGII). Some of the chip names sound interesting as the sector rebounds after a long slide. This includes GFS stocks, which are a bit higher than the early entries.
But for big companies like Apple, Microsoft and Tesla stocks, it may take some time before they top the list. The same is true of cloud software, with the risk that some may not recover for years, if ever.
