Stock market correction analysis
The stock market plunged below key levels after a sharp sell-off on Tuesday. It is not surprising to see the market trying to get up. But despite solid earnings and lower bond yields, key indices moved out of the opening gate and backed down.
But it’s classic market correction behavior: open strong, close weakness.
The Nasdaq mix, already below its 200-day mark, goes to its lowest level in early October. It roughly corresponds to the February 2021 peak. The Big-Cap Nasdaq 100, led by Apple Stock and Microsoft, is approaching its 200-day limit. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 indices are not far behind.
Russell 2000, which cut its December low on Tuesday, fell to its lowest level in more than a year, reducing its long-term integration.
Software led by PANW and some others rose slightly on Wednesday, but closed at a high. The sector has been at zero growth in recent months.
Meanwhile, the latest market leadership is now struggling. Financials had another failure session. Mixed bank revenues and low treasury returns did not help. Energy stocks fell as crude oil prices continued to rise.
Only 39.8% of investment newsletters in the recent weekly reading were positive, which is the lowest level since the Corona virus crash. About 60.2% saw a correction or bear market.
The CBOE Volatility Index, or VIX, is set to rise significantly in 2022, but let alone the so-called market fear measurement, bigger fears than the December highs.
However, bull-bear reading and VIX are secondary indicators. Key indices and leading stocks are primary indicators, and they are terrible.
What to do now
Even if the key codes mobilize strongly for a full session or two, it is not enough to get excited. The stock market has seen many one, two or three day improvements over the last two months, but the overall trend is low.
Investors should look for one The following day. First, the market rally effort should take a few days. We were not even on the first day.
IBD founder Bill O’Neill is a lifelong hopeful, but do not confuse the steady hope for eternal positivity. You can count on the stock market to have better opportunities in 2022, and you are almost right. But that doesn’t mean you have to be excited right now.
Instead of trying to recover, they wallow in their sadness and thus, experience more failure. Look for stocks with strong relative strength that hold key support levels. But comparative strength remains in motion, especially in stock market corrections.
So keep adjusting your watchlist. Some software names, such as Microsoft and FordNet, may begin to reassert relative strength, or they may be delayed or broken. Let the market be your guide.
According to The big picture Every day the direction of the market and the leading stocks and sectors must be consistent.
