Dow futures contracts will open on Sunday evening, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures. The stock market rally declined last week as the buzz of Biden’s stimulus package began to fade. But it was a constructive retreat.
The major indices fell slightly, holding the short-term moving averages and leaving the long-term moving averages behind. Some flashy market areas – like new IPOs like Yatson Holdings (School) – suffered heavy losses or severe setbacks. Tesla (TSLA) It rolled back, but after it looked like it was going peak-to-run the electric car maker feels anti-climax, which is a good thing.
American tech giants do not participate. Apple stock, the only one that appeared to be trying to perform well, took a heavy toll. Most of them have been behind the stock market rally for months and are stuck below their 50 day moving averages, including Microsoft (MSFT), The social networking site Facebook (FB) And Netflix Stock. Netflix (NFLX) Earnings reports on Tuesday, with Walt Disney (Dis) And Disney + quickly became a serious competitor. Disney stocks have performed much better than Netflix for several months.
Cyclical stocks still look strong. Eastman Chemical’s stock faded just below the buy point. Eastman Chemical (EMN) Earn in 2 weeks as earnings season reaches full steam. JPMorgan shares rose last week and flirted with a buy point from a Long deep base. C. B. Morgan Chase (JPM) Earnings easily outpaced views on Friday, but JPM stock declined.
Rhythm design systems (CDNS) And the Synopsis (SNPS), Which makes software for designing semiconductors, both of which are just below the range of recent breakthroughs. But the CDNS and SNPS stock was created Three tight weeks Patterns – a drawing.
Match set (MTCH) Try to open a narrow pattern last week, and reverse the downtrend. But Match share rebounded from main support on Friday.
Biden buzz stimulus fading?
President-elect Joe Biden unveiled a $ 1.9 trillion stimulus plan Thursday night, but that did not support Friday’s stock market rally. Biden’s motivational hype fueled cyclical fluctuations and the broader market in the new year. The Democrats’ victory in the Georgia Senate runoff to consolidate control of the government makes it likely that much of Biden’s stimulus plan will be passed.
However, with a slim majority in the House and Senate, Biden’s stimulus plan could face major changes. Meanwhile, Biden also says he will propose another sizable spending bill later in the year, but that will come with hefty tax increases for corporations and capital gains.

Stock market rise analysis
Major indices fell last week, but not too badly. On Friday, the Nasdaq found support at the 10-day line. The Dow Jones, S&P 500 and QQQ indices held their index at a 21-day exponential moving average.
The modest decline also curbed the Nasdaq index, which was extended. The compound is now 4.6% higher than the 50 day moving average versus 8% at the end of the previous week. As long as the Nasdaq is within 6% of that key level, the risk of a downturn in the near term is relatively low. Meanwhile, QQQ is 2.9% above 50 days, with the S&P 500 and Dow up 2.7%.
A modest decline in major indices, more significant losses in tech giants, and a sharp decline in initial public offerings and other speculative stocks could dent bullish sentiment.
The Read Bulls vs Bears It has had bullish tendencies near the highs of several years, at levels often associated with peaks. Meanwhile, the buy / sell ratio, CBOE volatility index and other psychological indicators. At its lowest in a long time. Marginal debt is rising strongly compared to the previous year.

Rally Market game plan
Take into account your overall market exposure. Major indices just touched 10 or 21 day lines, but many hot stocks suffered big losses on Friday and throughout the week. Imagine the impact on your portfolio if the Nasdaq index drops below the 50-day line or less.
Are you extremely exposed in IPOs or other areas of speculation? Are you stuck in a lot of big tech like Apple or Microsoft stocks. Having some in your portfolio might make sense, but with these unfortunate giants here, you don’t want to miss out on a strong stock market recovery. Do you have any periodic stock. Don’t let technology or growth bias stop you from thinking stocks and sectors are now thriving.
After deciding on any broad adjustments, come up with a game plan for your stocks. What’s your streak in the sand for a partial profit and a whole sale? Do you have enough cushion to retain profits? Make these decisions on the weekend or outside of trading hours and then stick to these rules. You don’t want to panic selling or panic over a freeze when the market is moving.
Make sure to look at the daily and weekly charts. The drop may seem worrisome on a daily basis but less than that in the week.
