Market rally analysis

The stock market rally rebounded on Wednesday, but it was hardly a blow after the Nasdaq plunged more than 5% on Tuesday.

Wednesday’s relatively consistent PPI reading likely gives the Federal Reserve reason to stick with a third consecutive 75 basis point rate hike on September 21, although markets are pricing in a quarter chance of 100 basis points. Perhaps more importantly, the FedWatch CME Tool now shows that markets are pricing in a year-end fed funds rate range of 4.25% to 4.50%. That’s 50 basis points higher than before Tuesday’s consumer price index.

A potential strike by railway workers on Friday is a possible negative effect for a large number of sectors of the “real economy”. Meanwhile, Wednesday Nucor (NUDE) the earnings warning is a reminder that the negative prior announcements are likely to start to heat up.

It only took a few minutes for the major indices to fall below their 50-day moving averages on Tuesday, but it could take a long time to get back above this key level. The stock market rally may encounter resistance there, or at the nearby 21-day lines. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are near last week’s lows, with the Dow Jones having already broken above those levels.

Energy stocks were winners on Wednesday, but closed well off intraday highs. While oil and gas names move with commodity prices, they are also subject to stock market trends.

ANET and Pure Storage stocks aren’t as close to being mineable, but there is an upside. They could be sending buy signals as the major indices rebound above their 50-day moving averages.

What to do now

But until major indices return above their 50-day lines, investors should be cautious about increasing exposure. This is a market rally under significant pressure, not a powerful uptrend.

If you take new positions, consider taking partial profits particularly quickly.

That being said, major stocks look better overall than stock indices. Investors should build their watchlists, look for quality names that set up or emit buy signals.
