Market Rise Analysis
The stock market rally fell sharply on Wednesday. Volume on the Nasdaq rose against the previous session, ushering in a new distributing day.
In general, the major indicators continue to show sideways movement, finding support at the 21-day moving averages. With that, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones hit resistance at the 10-week lines, while the Russell 2000 fell back below the 50-day, 10-week lines.
Additional side actions may be constructive to the rise of the market, allowing for the formation of more bases and handles. But with the single 21-day line trending higher, and the 50-day and 10-week lines steadily declining, the major indicators could come under pressure to break higher or lower.
Energy stocks remain a standout, although individual names can certainly have some big daily or weekly swings. Meanwhile, other sectors are struggling to show leadership for any length of time. The relative shortage of stocks that can be bought – and the high failure rate among new buying opportunities – has been a worrisome aspect of the current market rally.
ZIM and Star Bulk gave up a few weeks of gains on Wednesday, while Timken Steel (TMST) and amvastar pharmaceuticals AMPH slipped back below buying points after Tuesday’s impressive breakout.
Time to Market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy
What are you doing now
If you’ve built a mediocre view over the past two weeks, there’s no good reason to add jobs at the moment. The market rally is limited in scope, with the May CPI report due on Friday and the Federal Reserve meeting next week. Investors should quickly cut losses and consider taking at least partial profits relatively early.
A market rally could deteriorate, pushing investors to the sidelines. Or it could improve quickly, resulting in a flurry of buying opportunities. Investors must be alert to market changes and be prepared to act.
