Market Rise Analysis
After reversing lower from major resistance on Monday, the market rebounded strongly on Tuesday in higher volumes versus Monday. The Nasdaq bounced back above the 50-day line and Monday’s high to its highs in late June and early July. So did small-cap owner Russell 2000.
The Dow and the S&P 500 rose above their 50-day lines and are approaching their highs in late June.
Can the market now decisively rise to remove these resistance levels? Doing so may indicate that the market is at least a tradable rally. Keep in mind that the June highs are the next big hurdle.
The market breadth was strong on Tuesday, but there weren’t many new stocks that exploded or showed strong movement. It was a day of deep sea fishing, hard hit stocks rose but still far from old highs.
However, it was good to see ETFs (SMH) and software (IGV) moving back above the 50-day lines. As with the major indices, chip and software stocks have peaked above the 50-day lines at times briefly this year to decline rapidly.
The medical leaders who reversed on Monday are back at a lower level, rebounding on Tuesday. AstraZeneca (AZN) moved into a buy zone, albeit a light volume.
What are you doing now
It’s a tough time. The major indicators are starting to break through the resistance. If this continues, investors may feel more confident about gradually increasing exposure. However, earnings season is heating up, with the Federal Reserve meeting next week.
These news events may push the market higher or send indicators sharply lower – or flip back and forth. Individual stocks can drop on earnings in any case.
So if you add exposure, prepare to roll back quickly.
Definitely work on your watchlists, and spend extra time on the lead candidates for new entries.
