The stock market rally began on Monday with losses, as investors feared a new Covid boom, lockdowns and related travel bans. But stocks rebounded from their intraday lows to close mixed.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.1% on Monday Stock market trading, Powered by Nike, JPMorgan, and Goldman Sachs (P). The S&P 500 is down 0.4%. The Nasdaq Composite is down 0.1%. The Nasdaq recovered from its 10-day streak on Monday, but the large Nasdaq 100 index bounced off above the 21-day moving average.
The S&P 500 lost slightly more floor than the Dow or the Nasdaq due to its exposure to travel and energy stocks. But the biggest loser in the S&P 500 was its newest member. Tesla stock, the sixth largest component of the S&P 500, is down 6.5%. The electric vehicle leader has been on a mammoth run in 2020, with a lot of gains from the S&P 500 announcement. Where does TSLA stock go now that news of TSLA’s big shares – 5-for-1 split and S&P 500 listing – is finally in the rearview mirror ?
between the The best ETFs, The Innovator IBD 50 ETF (fifty(Down 0.1%, while the Innovator IBD Breakout Opportunities Fund fell)fitIt rose 0.1%. IShares Technology and Software Extended Fund (ETF)IGVDecreased by 0.1%. (VanEck Vectors Semiconductor Foundation)SMH) Fell 0.5%, but bounced off the 21-day moving average on the day, like AMD and LRCX stocks.
21-day moving average
The 21-day moving average is a good place for growth stocks and indices to find support during a stock market rally. During the stock market rally from April to September, the Nasdaq index maintained its 21-day moving average during its steep rally, with only a few tests. It’s a nice compromise between the short-term 10-day streak and the longer 50-day streak. IBD uses a 21-day exponential moving average because it embraces a bit more: the latest price move carries a higher weighting than the simple moving average.
On Monday, Apple shares fell as much as 2.5%, touching the 21-day streak, but up 1.2%. AMD stock lost 2.8% but is down 5% on the day, reducing its 21-day price. Nio stock slipped back to the 21-day streak, then bounced back, gaining 4.8%. Snowflake stock stopped further away from this major line, and rebounded 4.7%.
LRCX stock, which had been falling constructively over the course of nearly two weeks, tested the 21-day streak before bouncing to a 0.5% advance. Uber stock, which has been finding support at the 21-day line for a few days, fell 3.6% for the day but closed up 2.35%.
Investors can use the 21-day moving average as a line in the sand, holding the growth stock until they close below the 21-day moving average, at which point they may take full or partial profits.
The 21 day streak can be a place to start or add a few stocks, either as swing trading or trading, as is the case with LRCX, Uber or Nio. But buying at the 21 day streak is far more aggressive than using pullbacks to the 50 days / 10 weeks line.
Stock market rise analysis
So far in the stock market rally after the election, major indices have respected the 21-day streak. This is a sign of strength. Some of the Nasdaq sideways actions over several days may allow major averages to catch up, providing more space for stocks to run without high risk of a pullback.
