Dow futures: Failed to test market faces before; Elon Musk moves to end Twitter deal


Dow futures will open Sunday evening, along with S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures, with a focus on Twitter stock as Elon Musk has moved to end his acquisition. The stock market rally showed its strength, with the Nasdaq leading the major indexes higher while more high-quality stocks flashed buy signals.

The Nasdaq closed the week around its 10-week moving average and 50-day line, having struggled several times this year. Major indicators decisively clearing these key levels could be a positive move, although the market rally will still face many challenges, from technical resistance to the start of earnings season. On the contrary, selling from the current levels may be a bearish signal.

Elon Musk wants to end the Twitter deal

Late Friday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk informed Twitter (TWTR) that he wants to close a $44 billion deal worth $54.20 per share. Musk’s lawyers argued that Twitter “did not comply with its contractual obligations.”

Twitter’s board said it was confident of the deal and intends to close the deal. She plans to fight in court to get Musk to honor the signed agreement. Protracted litigation is likely. Musk may have to close the deal or pay a large sum — more than a billion-dollar breakup fee — to leave.

It’s a big turnaround since April, when Musk belatedly disclosed a large stake in “negative” TWTR stock and quickly moved into an acquisition deal, claiming it could significantly expand growth and boost freedom of speech.

Twitter’s stock fell 5% in late Friday trading, indicating its lowest levels since mid-March. Shares fell 5.1% to 36.81 on Friday after a Washington Post article that the deal was in trouble.

TSLA stock rose modestly in the extended trade.

Meanwhile, Musk’s step back from Tesla may be good news for ex-President Trump, who has been battling Truth Social. Digital World Acquisition Corporation. (DWAC), which is Truth Social’s parent SPAC merger partner, up 29% late Friday.

Tesla stock rose 10.3% in the short week to 752.9 back above the 50-day line for the first time in two months. TSLA stock has yet to pull back from its May lows last month, so it can be said that it is trying to erase a very short bottom base.

Market Rise Analysis

The stock market rally, which was reeling a week ago, bounced back last week after rebounding from Tuesday’s intraday lows. The Nasdaq rose to its 50-day and 10-week lines as well as its highs in late June, closing partially above its 10-week average.

The 10-week line was a major resistance area for the tech-heavy index.

On Friday morning, the major averages pulled back strongly after a strong jobs report pushed Treasury yields higher. But they turned back to close and nothing changed.

The S&P 500, Dow Jones and Russell 2000 indices have not yet reached the 50-day/10-week line, but have regained their 21-day moving averages.

However, last week’s gains came on light trading volume, indicating that large institutions are not making big bets on this market rally just yet.

Pausing the market rally around current levels for a few days or weeks wouldn’t be a terrible thing. This would allow more bases to take shape and allow the major averages to catch up with the leading stocks or collapse to the worst hit names trying to bounce back.

However, more stocks are setting up points of purchase of different quality. The medical sector continues to be dominant, accounting for four of the nine stocks highlighted here. But there are other sectors that look promising.

Remember, financial markets are still weighing the risks of inflation, stagnation and Fed rate hikes. Stocks, bonds and commodities are subject to violent fluctuations.

Time to Market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

What are you doing now

The market rally is still ‘under pressure’, but the major indicators are looking much better than they were a week ago, and they are about to make a huge positive move. The blue-chip stocks are growing more and are doing well.

All this is still temporary. Sharp selling, especially from current levels, may be a bearish signal. A few bad days could turn recent buying into clear losses, with indicators heading lower again.

Therefore, slowly build your exposure as the market and your positions work. You can still take some partial profits on the winners to reap the winnings. Be prepared to reduce losses quickly.

Work hard this week on your watch lists. Build an extensive list, paying particular attention to a selection of potential purchases in the coming days.

Pay special attention to earnings season, which will start to pick up this coming week. Amid rising inflation, a strong dollar and slowing growth, we expect many companies to miss or issue bleak guidance. So pay attention to when your property reports your earnings, or when major competitors are ready.
