Russian-Ukrainian talks

A Russian negotiator described the Ukraine talks as “constructive”. Russia said it would “drastically reduce” military activities around Kyiv and the nearby northern city of Chernev in order to “build confidence”. This appears to be a cover for a military retreat, with some units returning to Russia’s ally Belarus. Ukrainian forces have been retaking territory around Kyiv – and elsewhere – for the past few days, as Russia sustained heavy losses in troops and equipment in its invasion of Ukraine. Russia continued to bombard the Kyiv region and other major Ukrainian cities aggressively.

Russia has said that the peace agreement will require Ukraine to remain outside NATO, but it has no objection to Ukraine joining the European Union.

Ukrainian and Western officials have expressed doubts that Russia is serious about peace talks. US officials have indicated that the forces may be redeploying to the Donbass region in the southeast, where Russia continues to launch attacks.

While the main indicators continued to rise, the prices of oil, agriculture, mining and other commodities faded with the prices of basic commodities. But commodity and stock prices retreated from their lows as some optimism about talks between Russia and Ukraine faded. Defense names also declined.

Market Rise Analysis

The stock market rally continued on Tuesday due to Russian-Ukrainian talks and Russian troop movements, closing near session highs even as US and Ukrainian officials tempered optimism.

The S&P 500, Nasdaq Composite and Russell 2000 all moved above their short-term February highs. The Dow Jones regained the 200-day streak. The 200-day Nasdaq line is the next big resistance level for the market rally.

Top losers were overwhelmingly ahead of Tuesday’s broad-based advance.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see the market pause or pull back. Of course, this was true for a while. That would be healthy, letting the key indicators digest the gains. That could allow stocks like Tesla and Apple to forge handles, creating new or less risky buying opportunities.

The market rally is still being driven by the headline. It’s hard for Wall Street to price major news shifts – war versus peace – especially when news changes so quickly.

Market leadership

What stocks and sectors will lead?

The winners during the correction – energy and other commodities – were having a rough morning, but they cut losses and don’t seem to be done yet. Energy stocks in particular pulled back from intraday lows as crude oil prices pared losses.

Defensive growth names, especially medical stocks like United Health (United nations), HCA Healthcare (HCA) And the Eli Lilly (LLY), they keep the points of purchase but do not charge higher fees in the past several sessions.

Many of the big winners during the recent recovery have been trounced, and they are the highly valued growth leaders. Many of them are still in good condition. One notable exception is the Tesla stock. BROS stock fared well from all-time highs, but broke out of a legitimate base on Tuesday.

Apple Stock, Microsoft and Google Parent the alphabet (Google) are the tech giants with relatively modest price-earnings ratios that are flashing buy signals.

As the stock market moves forward, the Treasury yield spread indicates that bond traders are more concerned about the economic outlook, from the Russia-Ukraine war to the Fed rate hike. A Russia-Ukraine cease-fire or peace deal could give the Federal Reserve more freedom to enact 50 basis point increases to combat inflation.

Either way, investors should look to have a diversified mix of leadership right now, and continue to slowly increase exposure.

Keep working on those watchlists. Strong market gains fix a lot of broken charts.
