Stock market pool
The stock market rally started slightly higher on the major indexes, then reversed sharply as Treasury yields continued to rise, but then pared losses. Trading volume rose, especially on the Nasdaq.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.5% in stock market trading Thursday. The S&P 500 Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.6%.
Thursday’s declines came after four consecutive gains. But the indicators are facing difficulties at key levels.
The Nasdaq fell back below its 50-day line. The Dow Jones Index has once again reached the resistance level at the 200-day level. The S&P 500 fell below the 21-day moving average during the day, but closed just above that level.
Meanwhile, the basic procedure was even worse. Losers outnumbered winners by 3 to 1 on the Nasdaq and by 5 to 1 on the New York Stock Exchange.
Small-cap Russell 2000 and Invesco S&P 500 Equal-Weight ETF (RSP, which was facing resistance at the fast-declining 21-day line, fell by 2.23% and 1.25%, respectively. Both are close to their recent lows and into 2023.
The First Trust Nasdaq 100 Equal Weighted Index ETF (QQEW) fell 0.9%, retreating from its 50-day line. The Nasdaq 100 is only 0.35% below its 50-day level.
US crude oil prices fell by 0.7% to $82.91 per barrel. Gasoline futures fell 2% to the lowest closing level in 2023.
The 10-year Treasury yield rose more than 11 basis points to 4.7%, which also led to significant gains in the US dollar. The 10-year Treasury yield bounced on CPI inflation, then rose at the 30-year Treasury auction. The auction witnessed weak demand and high returns.
The stock market rally benefited greatly from the decline in Treasury yields and the dollar. So these sharp gains are worrying. If the 10-year Treasury yield rises to 16-year highs, the upside could face real challenges.
Among the growth ETFs is the Innovator IBD 50 ETF (FFTY) decreased by 1.7%. iShares Extended Technology Software Fund (ETF)IGV) fell 0.4%, with MSFT holding a large share. VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (Trait) by 0.5%. NVDA stock is the #1 component of SMH.

What are you doing now
Thursday’s negative reversal is why it is a good idea to add exposure gradually against a big wave.
Aside from some major technology companies, the market appears to be facing resistance, at least in the short term. Investors, especially those who have been aggressive in recent days, should be prepared to trim or exit their positions if they falter. A decline in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq below the 21-day line would be a negative sign.
However, stocks could easily rebound. A Nasdaq index decisively crossing its 50-day line – and the S&P 500 following it – will likely provide a number of buying opportunities. So, get your watchlists ready.
Earnings season is about to start, which adds a significant amount of uncertainty. Find out the earnings histories of your properties and potential purchases, as well as of your main competitors, customers or suppliers.
