Market Rally Analysis

Stock market volatility continued to increase, with lower Treasury yields and the US dollar providing a tailwind for equities.

The Nasdaq and small caps led gains on Tuesday. The Dow Jones retreated on Tuesday but remains the leader of the rally, pushing higher than the 50-day line. The S&P 500 and Russell 2000 are close to this key level. The Nasdaq still has a short distance to reach the 50-day mark. But the S&P, Russell and Nasdaq are above 10-week lines.

It is not yet clear if this is just another rally. Will the S&P 500 and then the Nasdaq break above the 50-day moving average. And if so, can the major index clear the 200 day?

On the other hand, several growth stocks showed strong activity, including Shockwave, DoubleVerify (DV) and Roblox (RBLX).

These join medical leaders, including biotechs, health insurers and drug distributors. Auto parts dealers are doing well.

Energy stocks continue to perform well.

Treasury yields, earnings and economic data could derail this recent rally.

Microsoft and Google reported on Tuesday night, with the Meta Platforms (META), apple (AAPL) and Amazon earnings this week.

It’s no coincidence that Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Apple stocks closed Tuesday at or below their 50-day line. Even Meta stock, which nearly hit a bear market low on Friday, is back at its 50-day low.

Microsoft, Google and Amazon are ready to retreat from this basic level. Futures index the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq will also do so at Wednesday’s open.
