Market Rise Analysis
The stock market rally suffered heavy losses on Wednesday, even as Apple masked weakness in major corporate indexes. The S&P 500 has pulled back from the 200-day line. The Dow Jones index crossed the 50-day line.
The Nasdaq Composite and Russell 2000 remain above the 50-day lines.
While down days are not fun, a short pause in the market rally can be beneficial. That would allow stocks like Apple and Tesla to take a break, and perhaps form handles. Meanwhile, the stocks that continued to rise will see the RS lines rise significantly.
Energy stocks topped Wednesday, reflecting the strength of crude oil prices. Steel, mining and fertilizer also performed well.
And lost software and housing stocks. Medical stocks, from biotech companies to health insurance companies, had a tough session.
What are you doing now
Wednesday’s decline was not a cause for concern given the recent strong gains from the market rally. But that’s why investors should increase exposure gradually, to avoid jumping right at the top, short-term or otherwise. This is also the reason why you should never want to buy an extended stock.
If the stock market rally is struggling significantly, with the Nasdaq and S&P 500 decisively breaking below the 50-day moving averages, investors will likely cut back or exit some recent positions.
This is a time to be flexible. Don’t get stuck in a bullish or bearish mindset. Listen to the market, and act accordingly.
