Market Rise Analysis
The stock market rally is in a moderately weak trend, showing the elements of a broad downturn as well as the sector spinning out of growth.
During the day, the Nasdaq index fell just above the 21-day exponential moving average, as it began to trim losses. The 21-day streak was a major area of support for the Nasdaq during the April-November stock market rally in addition to the current bullish trend. The Nasdaq may quickly recover to record highs or trade sideways in its current range for some time. But at some point, the boat will decisively breach its 21-day streak and test or break the 50-day streak.
While the Nasdaq has suffered relatively modest losses this week, many leaders have fallen sharply. Nio shares are down 9.4%, and Palantir is 21%. Yalla (YALA), A social media initial public offering focused on the Middle East that nearly tripled in 2021 by its peak on February 12, is down 31% this week.
Test your portfolio stress
Investors should create a game plan for their individual holdings, and an exit strategy for expanding positions. But they should also plan for a general downturn in the market. Consider what happens to your overall business portfolio. While most of your stocks may hold individually, if they are all down by 2%, 5% or more, it will affect your portfolio, especially if you are on the margin.
So test your portfolio stress. At what point are you downsizing your portfolio just because your portfolio is up to 5%, 10% or more with a weak market?
Identify your staples and short-term plays. In the event of a market downturn, cut your non-core positions first, assuming your underlying holdings are performing well.
One argument for taking some profits when the market is stretched, particularly in non-core holdings, is that this eases difficult decisions about selling on a pullback. It’s hard to sell just to watch the market bounce back. But if you don’t make any selling by the time the Nasdaq is down, say, 5%, and the market continues to decline, your capital losses may increase.
