What are you doing now

The stock market rally continues to trade in a sideways pattern, but is very close to the 2023 highs. Some leading stocks are already pulling away, while others are getting closer.

Hopefully, most investors have already invested heavily. You can gradually increase exposure, perhaps taking profits or reducing lags to partially offset new purchases.

If the S&P 500 and Nasdaq break their 2023 highs, it could signal a new point in the market’s rally, strengthening the case for more aggressiveness. Many recent settings will likely come into play in this scenario.

So be prepared. Work on your watch lists. While this article highlighted Tesla and five large chip stocks, leaders emerged from a variety of sectors. So cast a wide net.
