Market Rally Analysis
When you get a brand new car, do not expect problems when you drive a lot of vehicles. But if you do, you can eat a lemon. On Tuesday, key indices a The following dayThe new stock market confirms the boom.
But on Wednesday, key indices fell, leaving Tuesday with strong gains and more.
The rising costs for a vulnerable consumer and business are a harsh mix for retailers and makers of preferred products. With consumers spending more than two-thirds of the US economy, the risks of a sharp downturn in the economy are mounting as the central bank seeks to reduce inflation. Aggressive Fed rate hikes can cause severe pain. But the alternative, allowing inflation to remain high, clearly affects demand as well.
Excluding the reasons for the sale, the technical action is clear. Not every The following day Jobs, and Wednesday’s action was a rough signal.
Key indices closed below their FTD lows. Eric Krul, co-author of “The Lifecycle Trade”, says his research shows that when key codes do this, the market rally has a 90% chance of ultimately failing.
The contradictions in this case may be even worse. The Dow Jones and S&P 500 created new 52-week lows on Wednesday, and the Nasdaq is not far from doing so.
However, the market rally will still be in effect until the key indices reduce the start of their rally, in which case the May 12 intraday low. The Dow Jones in particular is on the verge of collapse. Another level for the S&P 500, along with the Nasdaq, will definitely push the benchmark index into a bear market.

What to do now
Wednesday’s sale is a good step to slowly step into the rally of the newly confirmed stock market. This was especially true in the current market rally as the key indices and some stocks are below the key moving average.
Investors who bought shares or ETFs in the FTD on Wednesday should increase the volume or exit.
Continue to work on your watchlists. Focus on stocks with strong relative strength. But a strong RS line is not a green light to buy a stock, especially in a weak market.
The sale of DLTR shares on Wednesday – and in a few weeks Apple – shows how good the shares are as long as they are. So wait until a strong market signal to buy a stock and be ready to exit.
According to The big picture Every day the direction of the market and the leading stocks and sectors must be consistent.
