stock market analysis
What a wild session. The stock market sold hard at the open in the hot September inflation report, as all major indexes and the Russell 2000 all dented bear market lows. But with the 10-year Treasury yield tumbling from its highs and the dollar weakening, stocks rebounded, too.
The inflation report was grim, while expectations for a Fed rate hike worsened. Perhaps stocks – or treasury prices – were simply due to the rebound. Contrary to the August CPI, and many other Fed related events, the market did not attempt a rally in the September CPI data. The Nasdaq has fallen for six consecutive sessions. If the indices rise to the 21-day line at Wednesday’s close, the market’s performance on Thursday could be very different.
Long-term charts provide hints that a bear market could be at least close to the bottom. The Dow Jones and Russell 2000 indexes cut their pre-Covid highs. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq are not far from the February 2020 highs, with the former finding support at 3,500 on Thursday while the latter rebounding just above the 10,000 level. But there’s no reason why stocks shouldn’t drop that much.
Anyway, while a strong bullish reversal is welcome, keep it in perspective. The best days in stock market history come from bear markets. If the Nasdaq soon drops to new lows, Thursday’s gains will be just a picture.
Thursday marks the first day of a new stock market rally attempt for the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq indices. All major indices are still below their 21-day moving averages, with only the Dow Jones close to that short-term level. There are many other resistance levels above 21 days, but for now, let’s see if the market’s bullish attempt can pass through the second day. Follow-up day To confirm that the attempt to rise the new market cannot occur until next week at the earliest.
Major sectors, stocks
The energy sector was the first to become positive, with chevron (CVX) and many other higher devices. Vertex Pharmaceuticals (VRTX), Cardinal’s health (CAH) and stock CI are among many powerful healthcare names. Some steel plays look good, including commercial metal (CMC), but market conditions increase the risk significantly. The chips rebounded from sharp early losses, but most of them were hit hard. Shares of JPM, Citigroup, and other financial institutions are very similar.

What are you doing now
There is no reason to rush into the stock market yet. Yes, indices and many stocks made solid gains, especially from intraday lows, but we have no idea if Thursday saw a bear market or just a short bounce. If this ends up being a bull market with real legs, investors will have plenty of time to increase exposure. If the indexes quickly reach new lows, you’ll be glad you were all or all in cash. This is why a follow-up day makes so much sense. It’s a way to get into a new rally quickly without trying to guess the absolute bottom.
In practice, there weren’t many stocks flashing buy signals on Thursday. But a lot can be done in a good few days. So work on those watchlists. Focus on relative strength. Look for stocks that are approaching or regaining their 50-day lines or other major support. But many relatively strong stocks will be below the 50-day and even the 200-day lines. Don’t ignore them.
