Market Rise Analysis

The stock market rally eased on Tuesday, as major indexes pulled back from various resistance levels.

The Nasdaq, which erased its strong morning gains on Monday, led the decline on Tuesday. It has pulled back from a trend line dating back to January, but is still above its early June highs. Russell 2000, which shed its June highs on Monday, is back in that resistance zone. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones, which tested those levels Monday morning, are also retreating.

A pause in market rally around current levels may be positive. Many of the leading stocks that have gone up on the right side of the bases can use tighter handles and movement.

The major indicators could also start to decline more steeply. This does not necessarily mean underestimating bear market lows. It is also possible that the market will pull back, and then slide into a difficult range for a long time.

Selling in the semi-finals is a bad sign. Chip stocks usually play an important role in any meaningful market rally. Recent progress in potato chips has been encouraging.

On the positive side, the aerospace/defense, energy and health insurance companies have held up well or have continued to advance. Biotech companies generally fell modestly after strong gains.

Wednesday’s inflation report will provide a short-term stimulus, but how stocks open won’t necessarily be how they close.
