Stock exchange Tuesday
A one-day stock market rally quickly fell apart as the major indices sold out sharply. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.4% in Tuesday’s trading session. The S&P 500 index retreated 2.8%, with the Tesla stock and General Electric (GE) the biggest losers. The Nasdaq composite crumbled almost 4%. Small-cap Russell 2000 fell 3.15%.
The US crude oil price rose 3.2 percent to $ 101.70 a barrel.
The 10-year government interest rate fell 5 basis points to 2.77%.
Among the best ETFs, Innovator IBD 50 ETF (FFTY) rose 2.9%, while Innovator IBD Breakout Opportunities ETF (BOUT) rose 0.7%. iShares Expanded Tech-Software Sector ETF (IGV) retreated 3.7%, with Microsoft shares as a major IGV item. VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (SMH) slipped 4.3%.

Five best Chinese stocks to see now
Shares of Tesla plunged 12.2% on Tuesday to 876.42, falling below the 50-day moving average and even the 200-day high.
Investors seem worried that CEO Elon Musk will sell a significant portion of his TSLA shareholding to pay for his Twitter deal. Musk is financing the $ 44 billion Twitter takeover with $ 12.5 billion backed by some of his TSLA shares, as well as an additional $ 21 billion in funding that he is personally guaranteed, but which offers few details. Twitter shares fell 3.9% to 49.68 on Tuesday, creating a larger gap from the takeover price of $ 54.20.
The Tesla stock had traded around the 1000 mark for the past two weeks, which was encouraging. But in a market correction, stocks will sometimes hold for a few days or even a few weeks before suddenly breaking hard.
The Tesla stock still looks better than other EV and car stocks and all megacaps with the possible exception of apple (AAPL). But that does not say much.
The stock has not returned to mid-March levels, but has returned all or almost all gains since the TSLA stock slipped past its 200-day and 50-day lines.
Technically, the TSLA stock still has a buying point of 1,152.97 cups with handles, according to MarketSmith analysis. But the chart does not look right. It would be better if Tesla’s handle developed into a separate base.
The Ford F-150 Lightning manufacturing event on Tuesday signals further US competition for Tesla, which will not start making its Cybertruck until at least next year. In the meantime, Tesla will almost certainly lose its EV crown when it comes to vehicles sold in the second quarter to BYD (BYDDF), although the Chinese electric car and battery giant will do so via electric cars and hybrids combined.
When it’s time to sell your favorite stock
Nasdaq, the S&P 500 and finally the Dow Jones fell below Monday’s lowest levels by day, ending their one-day rally attempt. The Nasdaq fell its low point on March 14 to its worst level in 13 months. The others are approaching their lowest in 2022. The Dow Jones did not fall below Monday’s lowest level, so the attempt at a stock market rally is still pending.
The large indices are raging with extensive damage across the market and do not seem to be signaling a bottom yet.
The CBOE volatility index, linked to the S&P 500 index, jumped to its highest point since mid-March, but the VIX is still good compared to the February highs. However, the CBOE Nasdaq Market Volatility Index is nearing its peak in late February / early March.
As Microsoft shares fall and Google falls overnight, fears may begin to rise, especially with the large indices falling as Tesla and Apple move below their 200-day limits.
Energy stocks tried to bounce back Tuesday as crude oil prices returned to $ 100 a barrel. The fertilizer games will find important support ahead of earnings next week. Health insurance companies and pharmacies remain OK, although a number of drug stocks will report over the next few days. Defense stocks seem to find support not far from purchase points.
Waste Management flashed buy signals on its strong results, while Waste connections (WCN) hovers around a point of purchase.
But in most cases, even the strong groups have had a lower trend in the last couple of weeks.
Time market with IBD’s ETF market strategy
What to do now
The stock market is in a correction, and has not shown any real signs that the bleeding will stop soon. Investors should keep their exposure to a minimum or be completely cash-strapped.
Tuesday’s big sale after Monday’s return shows why investors should not jump on the first rise in a correction. This is a time to look for stocks that hold and have strong or rising RS lines. But as the sudden fall of the Tesla stock showed, resilient names and sectors can suddenly break down. This is a time to build watch lists, not make new purchases.
