Dow Jones futures edged lower after hours, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures after a modest decline for the rally. Two recent IPOs, Mobileye and Sprinker, moved overnight on news.
The major indexes pulled back on Monday, with the Nasdaq and S&P 500 turning negative as AAPL stock turned slightly lower. But they held on to the bulk of last week’s gains.

Bitcoin plunged as the SEC filed charges against Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, and co-founder Changpeng Zhao, for alleged securities violations and illegal operations in the US COIN stock, and Bitcoin miners such as Marathon Digital also fell. The SEC has threatened action vs. Coin base (COIN).
IPOs move late
Late Monday, marketing software maker Sprinkler (CXM) reported a better-than-expected profit and revenue gain in the first quarter. CXM shares rose more than 3% in late trading. The sprinkler stock, an IPO in 2021, had closed just above a brief consolidation that can be seen as a handle to an eight-month consolidation.
Meanwhile, Mobileye (MBLY) fell 3.5% in late trade, signaling a pullback below the 50-day. The self-driving systems company said it will sell 35 million shares on behalf of Intel (INTC), which spun off Mobileye in an IPO last year. MBLY shares fell 2.7% to 42.37 on Monday. Shares are set to fall below their 50-day line.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.6 percent in Monday’s trading. The S&P 500 retreated 0.2%. The Nasdaq composite fell 0.1 percent. The small-cap Russell 2000 fell 1.3%.
US crude oil prices rose 0.6% to $72.15 a barrel, well off intraday levels. Saudi Arabia said it would cut production by 1 million barrels per day in July.

Shares in buying areas
Tesla shares rose 1.7% to 217.61 on Monday after hitting a 2023 intraday high of 221.29. The shares are still in the area from 207.79 buy points, but are at the upper end of the 5% hunting zone. Tesla stock broke out Friday from what is either a cup or double bottom. The EV giant has advanced on above-average volume for six straight sessions.
FTNT shares jumped 4.6% to 71.27, reclaiming a 69.07 buy point from a flat V-shaped base, according to MarketSmith analysis. The volume was heavy. Fortinet initially broke out on May 19, but soon reversed lower to test the 50-day line before recovering.
DXCM shares climbed 1.7% to 124.66 on Monday, also hitting the 126.44 flat-base buy point intraday. Shares retook the 50-day line late last week and broke a short trend line. Dexcom stock topped a short-term high Monday.
SHOP stock rose 2.8% to 59.92, retreating from its 21-day line. That makes for an early entry, though Shopify stock has teased aggressive buy points several times over the past few weeks, only to quickly stumble. The shares are working on a possible base after a sharp earnings gap at the beginning of May.
WING stock fell 3%% to 203.69, rebounding from the 50-day and 10-week lines, just above an earlier consolidation. Shares also retook their 21-day line and broke a downtrend line. The volume was light but not terrible. Investors can use Monday’s move as a buy signal. Wingstop stock is on track to have a flat base, part of a base-on-base pattern, by the end of the week.
Market rally analysis
The rise in the stock market saw a crash on Monday, but seemed normal after last week’s big rises. The Nasdaq led at first, but turned red as Apple shares turned lower. So did the S&P 500.
The Dow Jones retreated modestly but remains above its 50-day line.
The Russell 2000 fell solidly, closing just below the 200-day mark. It is a reflection of weak width. After winners dominated at the end of last week, losers won easily on Monday.
The Nasdaq 100 rose 0.1%, off session highs. It is still 9.3% above the 50-day mark.
The First Trust Nasdaq 100 Equal Weighted Index ETF (QQEW) also rose 0.1%.
The Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF ( RSP ) fell 0.3% but remains above its 50-day line and 200-day. Holding that level and eventually heading towards 2023 highs will be important.
The market rally has been led by tech titans and AI stocks, including many chip plays. While some continued to rise on Monday, the Apple stock reversal and recent pullback in chips isn’t entirely unwelcome.
While the market breadth was negative on Monday, some sectors showed or hinted at strength.
That includes cyber security, with FTNT stock just one of several top performers. Several restaurant names, including WING stock, are still on the menu. Medical products and systems that DXCM stocks are at or near listings. Housebuilders and, to a lesser extent, travel stocks are doing well.

What to do now
After last week’s bullish, broad market rally, investors should look to increase exposure gradually.
Several stocks flashed buy signals Monday, though it wasn’t a flood given Monday’s slightly lower action.
Do not force yourself into heavy exposure. Let the market rally pull you in. If the market continues to improve and top stocks are flashing buy signals, you can add to your portfolio over time. If the market starts to waver, you should keep an eye on the exit.
Have the watch lists ready. Finding new leaders and spotting early contributions is key.
