Stock shake, blackmail
When you sell the leading stock to or below buy pointInvestors are faced with a difficult decision: to stick to the position, exit or scale back. There is not necessarily a “correct” answer. Sometimes the stock bounces back, and others keep falling – perhaps after a brief bounce. A more cautious approach may make more sense in the current volatile market. Buying near the entrance can provide more protection, too.

Market Rise Analysis
The stock market rally has made huge strides over the past week. Major indices have surpassed their 50-day and 10-week moving averages, which have been a major stumbling block in recent months.
But arguably the market was set to fall, especially in the Nasdaq and growth stocks. It’s best to get this pullback before the earnings collapse completely.
If everyone is going uphill for profits, that’s a recipe for big sell-offs on actual results. This may be especially true this time, with directions not particularly clear with the rapid deterioration of the economy.
Friday’s dip underscores how deceptive earnings season is, and not just for the company. Snap’s earnings report criticized shares of Meta and Google, along with other companies based on online advertising and the broader market.
Friday’s slump also shows the dangers of bottom fishing, buying shabby growth stocks as it races back.
The market may have bottomed out in mid-June, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a quick and easy walk to all-time highs and beyond. The market bottomed out in late 2002 and late 2008, but it didn’t run for several months.
In addition to tech giants like Apple, Microsoft, Meta, Google, and Amazon, other highlights include This Next Week ExxonMobil (XOM), chevron (CVX), merck (Mrk), Pfizer (PFE), General motors (GM) And the Qualcomm (QCOM).
Apple, Microsoft, Merck and XOM stocks are all components of Dow Jones.
What are you doing now
Investors should remain, at most, modest exposure. There weren’t many good stocks to buy, and these could be subject to a sudden selloff. Earnings season and the Fed meeting can send the market, different sectors, and individual stocks in all kinds of directions.
So be very careful for the next few days. If you make new purchases, look for early buying opportunities and try to buy as close to these entries as possible.
Keep working on your watchlists. The market rally showed some strength. You want to be ready to take advantage.
