Market rally analysis
The stock market backlash found support at key levels on Thursday and staged the long-awaited upside-down reversal.
The rise in the market on Wednesday turned into a “upward trend under pressure” as the key indices fell below the 21-day moving average. Thursday morning, the Nasdaq Composite and the Dow Jones fell below the 50-day line, further weakening them.
However, the Bulls counterattacked in the afternoon. Nasdaq and Dow Jones broke the 50-day line. However, while the Dow regained 21 days, Nasdaq resisted at that level. The S & P 500 has regained its 200th and 21st lines.
The Nasdaq’s break above the 21st line is a good sign of a market recovery.
So it would be a better width. Losers outnumbered winners in NYSE and Nasdaq. Thursday’s new lows were well above the new highs. Small cap Russell 2000 and S & P mid-cap 400 rebounded at lows on Thursday, but fell slightly. Both fell below their 50-day line on Wednesday.
Growth stocks are still damaged. Meanwhile, there is growing concern that inflation, and the Fed’s rate hikes to combat inflation, will put significant pressure on consumer discretionary spending.
Some sectors are still on track. In addition to commodities, medical and defense industry contractors and discounters, investors will find REITs and insurance companies doing well.
What to do now
The key indexes for which support was found on Thursday do not mean that support will continue. Market recovery is under pressure. Investors need to wait for stronger power before adding exposure widely. Currently, there are few setups, but the growth sector is facing many headwinds.
If you have new purchases, you should reduce them and limit them to strong sector stocks. Even if it works, don’t expose yourself too much to a particular sector.
I will continue to engage. If the market recovery drops significantly from here, investors will want to close more positions, even if they move completely to cash. On the other hand, a few days are good days and the market recovery will look much better, but many stocks have the potential to flash buy signals.
In the latter scenario, the investor wants to be ready to act. So cast a wide net and keep working on your watchlist.
