Stocks are in buy zones

ServiceNow stock rose 4.3% to 789.56, rebounding from around the 50-day line, back above the 21-day line and breaking the downtrend. This provides an early entry into the emerging flat base which is due to be valid after this week.

Shockwave stock rose 2.7% to 264.70, breaking the short consolidation trend line, a day after bouncing off the 21-day line. This provides early entry. Investors can also use the 270.96 level as an official entry for the latest move, which includes a three-week narrowing pattern. Investors could view the recent action as an indicator of a long and deep SWAV stock consolidation.

The token stock rose 3.15% to 46.43, extending the recent bounce from around the 50-day line and other converging moving averages. Shares reached 47.89 intraday before paring gains. The warehouse automation specialist is looking to enter the trend line, with the March 8 high of 47.05 a definite catalyst. It may be better to buy SYM shares on early entry rather than waiting for an official purchase point. But it is a very volatile stock.

Microsoft stock advanced 2.7% to 415.01, rebounding from the 10-week line and reclaiming the 21-day line. This can provide early or additional entry.

Nvidia stock

Nvidia stock jumped 7.2% to 919.13, rebounding from the 10-day moving average on above-normal trading volume. This followed Monday's 2% drop and Friday's ugly bearish reversal on huge volume. On March 7, the AI ​​chipset leader had its most extended 50-day run since 2023. Going into Tuesday's move, NVDA stock rose 35.6% above its 50-day line, still significantly extended.

What are you doing now

The market rally soon found support again. This flexibility is impressive, but it makes it difficult to form new rules. This is especially true for Nvidia and other AI chip names that have led the market in the past few months.

But a number of other sectors, including software, medical products and energy, have some quality that sets new rules. Some of these stocks have lines of relative strength that have remained lagging as a result, but generally after previous uptrends.

Investors could have benefited from some of these names, depending on their exposure levels. But as the market's rally is about to expand, the buying window can quickly close. If major indexes decline soon, stocks traded on Tuesday could struggle, at least temporarily.

That's why it's important to work on your watchlists, and make sure you're looking beyond the most popular names at the moment. You want to discover new emerging opportunities before you expand.
