stock market analysis
Well, it’s a correction in the stock market. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones on Tuesday cut last Friday’s lows, before paring losses somewhat.
The good news about Tuesday is that stocks did not rebound amid the big news regarding the Federal Reserve. This is in contrast to Jackson Hole’s August 26 speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Powell, or the September 14 CPI inflation report.
It is no coincidence that the stock market is struggling with rising Treasury yields.
The Summer Bull case revolved around the Federal Reserve. First, the Fed was expected to slow down the rate hike soon, and then start cutting rates in 2023. Then, there is still hope that the Fed will cut rates and pause by the end of the year.
But the Fed is now on track to raise interest rates aggressively through the end of the year, with more likely to happen in 2023. That means a lot of pain for the economy.
The sale of Ford stock on Tuesday, after FDX and GE last week, shows that investors have not been pricing in disappointingly large dividends. Expect more warnings in the next few weeks.
Given the weakness in the past several weeks, the market is likely to rebound on Wednesday after the Fed meeting and Fed Chair Powell’s speech. Keep in mind that the market often reverses course in reaction over the course of the second day of the Fed meeting.
Until it becomes clear when the Fed may start to slow down and stop its tightening, it is hard to see markets making meaningful progress. It’s not hard to see major indexes test or lower their June lows.
What are you doing now
The market correction is back in force as the Federal Reserve is close to raising interest rates sharply again, with no end in sight. Companies are posting big warnings amid tough macroeconomic conditions that are likely to get worse.
Investors should have little or no exposure and not make new purchases. Wait for a confirmed uptrend, which is likely to include the major indicators reclaiming their 50-day moving averages. Even in this scenario, other technical hurdles, in addition to the Federal Reserve and the economic background, should keep investors cautious.
For now, investors should work on their watch lists, focusing on relative strengths like NBIX, On Semi and Tesla stock. Remember that today’s relative winners may start to unravel if the correction intensifies.
