Market Rally Analysis

The stock market rally had a relatively quiet session, but the Nasdaq and S&P 500 hit fresh highs while the Dow Jones held above its 50-day line.

A quiet day is especially healthy for the Nasdaq, which is 5% above its 50-day line. The Nasdaq 100, including Apple and other big-cap members, is 5.6% above its 50-day line. When the Nasdaq gets 6% or more extended from its 50-day line, it’s getting a bit extended. That raises the risk of a pullback, along with the odds that any such pullback will be larger. Of course, as the Nasdaq showed in August 2020 and earlier this year, the tech-heavy index can get a lot more extended, for a lengthy time, before retreating considerably.

Only a few new buying opportunities appeared Tuesday, but there have been dozens of breakouts, early purchase signals and aggressive entries over the last several days and weeks. A number of stocks, including Apple, moved closer to buy points. The broader market’s flat finish meant that Tuesday’s winners got an extra RS line boost.
