CHKP Stock

A CHKP stock in a consolidation state can be viewed as a flat base or shallow cup with handle. The purchase point of a mug with a handle is 145.64.

Market Rise Analysis

The stock market rally continues to grow more fragmented. The Nasdaq Composite Index is down sharply after falling below the 50-day line the previous week. The S&P 500, now below 200 days, fell below 50 days as well.

The commodity sector is broad and medical and defense companies are the leaders. Insurance companies and REITs are reasonably cohesive. Travel names are back again, with crude oil prices off their March highs, and consumers turning away from merchandise and willing to pay exorbitant prices.

But the Nasdaq lost more than half of its gains in late March. apple (AAPL) and the Tesla holds up well, but it doesn’t look particularly attractive either. As for the other mics, Microsoft (MSFT), nvidia (NVDA) and Google Parent the alphabet (The Google) is approaching its lowest levels recently. (AMZN) and father Facebook ID pads (FBStruggling for months.

The high rate environment is challenging for high value growth stocks. TSLA stock is emerging, but this market hasn’t addressed lone wolf growth.

What are you doing now

The fork market rally, with some sectors rising and others falling, is a challenging trading environment. Investors need to focus on the leading sectors. But don’t get too concentrated in one particular area. One positive aspect of the travel stocks resurgence is that the sector is unrelated to the energy/commodity sector.

With commodity trading, you may look for pullbacks to moving averages as opportunities to initiate or add trades.

Depending on your trading style, you may want to take partial profits from stocks that are up 10% or 15%, to make sure you stay away from trades with gains.

Don’t be stubborn. If your stocks are not performing, especially those in the lagging sectors, cut your losses and get out. You might think that the previous great growth leaders couldn’t fall any further, but as long as the stock is above zero, it can still drop 100%.

Keep building your watch lists. Buying opportunities can come and go quickly, while market conditions can change quickly. So you want to be ready.

Earnings season will start to pick up next week. Know when your holdings — or key competitors, supplies, or customers — are reporting results.
