Stock Market ETF Strategy and How to Invest
Attempts at stock exchange rally
The major stock indices showed weak results on Monday, when Nasdaq again tested its critical 50-day benchmark index. Despite the losses, Monday marked Day 6 with new rally attempts on the Nasdaq and S&P 500, and Day 8 for the Dow Jones industry.
Although the indices are still trying to launch a rally, the market correction is not over yet; several days is not a trend. From day 4 onwards, you are looking for a large index that will rise sharply in higher volumes than the day before. It will indicate a follow-up day, and signal the start of a potential trend.
Until such a signal emerges, the market outlook remains a market in correction. Investors should avoid new purchases and maintain watch lists of top-growth stocks. Make sure you keep a close eye on your portfolio to ensure that you protect your gains and reduce losses quickly.
Now, while the market continues to correct, it’s a good time to look for stocks that could be the next trend leaders. One tool that is useful in such a search is the relative strength line. The RS line measures a share price development vs. S&P 500. If the stock surpasses the wider market, the RS line angles upwards. If a stock performs worse than the broad market, the line will point lower.
After Friday’s session, The Big Picture commented: “Nasdaq managed to close just above its 50-day moving average. Investors will want to see it carry the momentum further in the coming week as the stock market tries to return to a confirmed uptrend. unstable period. “
