Tuesday on the stock exchange

A one-day stock market rally quickly fell apart as major indices fell sharply. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.4% in the stock market on Tuesday. The S&P 500 index fell 2.8%, with Tesla and Electrical general (GE) the biggest losers. The Nasdaq composite collapsed by nearly 4%. The Russell 2000 small cap fell 3.15%.

US crude oil prices jumped 3.2% to $ 101.70 a barrel.

The 10-year Treasury yield fell 5 basis points to 2.77%.

Of the top ETFs, the Innovator IBD 50 ETF (FFTY) lost 2.9%, while the Innovator IBD Breakout Opportunities ETF (BOUT) was up 0.7%. IShares Expanded Tech-Software Sector ETF (IGV) fell 3.7%, with Microsoft shares in one of IGV’s major holdings. The VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (SMH) lost 4.3%.

Reflecting more speculative stocks, ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) plunged 6.75% and ARK Genomics ETF (ARKG) 6%. Both have reached their lowest levels since April 2020. The relative strength lines of ARKK and ARKG are at their lowest point in nearly five years, which means that investors would have done better to hold the S&P 500. Tesla stock is the No. . 1 holding in Ark Invest ETFs.

SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF (XME) lost 1.75% and the Global X US Infrastructure Development ETF (PAVE) lost 2.2%. US Global Jets ETF (JETS) fell 4.2%. SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (XHB) fell 2.3%.

Five best Chinese titles to watch now

Tesla shares

Tesla stock plunged 12.2% to 876.42 on Tuesday, dropping below the 50-day and even 200-day moving average.

Investors seem concerned that CEO Elon Musk will sell a significant portion of his TSLA stock to pay for his Twitter deal. Musk is funding the $ 44 billion Twitter acquisition with $ 12.5 billion backed by some of his TSLA shares and another $ 21 billion in funding that he personally secured but offered few details about. Twitter stock fell 3.9% to 49.68 on Tuesday, creating a larger gap from the $ 54.20 purchase price.

Tesla stock has been trading around the 1,000 mark in the past two weeks, which has been encouraging. But in a market correction, stocks sometimes hold out for a few days or even a few weeks before suddenly breaking out.

Tesla stocks look even better than other electric vehicle and automotive stocks and all mega-caps with the possible exception Apple (AAPL). But that doesn’t say much.

The shares have not returned to their mid-March levels, but have retraced all or most of the gains since the TSLA stock broke its 200 and 50 day lines.

Technically, TSLA shares still have a buy point of 1,152.97 cup with handle, according to MarketSmith analysis. But the graph doesn’t look correct. It would be better if Tesla’s handle developed into its own base.

TSLA stock rose Wednesday, while Twitter fell.

The Ford F-150 Lightning production event on Tuesday signals further competition in the US for Tesla, which won’t start producing its Cybertruck at least next year. Meanwhile, Tesla will almost certainly lose its electric vehicle crown in terms of vehicles sold in the second quarter BYD (BYDDF), although the Chinese electric vehicle and battery giant will do so by combining electric and hybrid vehicles.

Market analysis

The Nasdaq, the S&P 500 and finally the Dow Jones all reduced Monday’s intraday lows, ending their one-day rally attempts.

The Nasdaq cut its March 14 low to its worst level in 13 months. This marks a new stage in the Nasdaq’s ongoing bear market, 23% below the November peak.

The Dow and the S&P 500 are nearing their 2022 lows.

The major indices are faltering with damage spread across the market and still don’t seem to be signaling a low.

The CBOE Volatility Index, linked to the S&P 500 Index, has jumped to its highest point since mid-March, but the VIX is still well on its February high. However, the CBOE Nasdaq Market Volatility Index is hitting its late February / early March highs.

With Microsoft shares plunging and Google crashing overnight, fear may begin to rise, especially with major indices plummeting as Tesla and Apple move below their 200-day lines.

Energy stocks tried to rally on Tuesday as crude oil prices recovered to the $ 100 a barrel level. The fertilizer games are finding key support ahead of next week’s earnings. Health insurers and the pharmaceutical sector are still holding up well, although a number of drug stocks are reporting in the coming days. Defense stocks appear to find support not far from the buying points.

Waste Management has sent buy signals on its excellent results, while Waste connections (WCN) hangs around a point of purchase.

But in most cases, even strong groups have had a downward trend in the past couple of weeks.

Time the market with IBD’s ETF market strategy

what to do now

The stock market is correcting and has shown no real signs that the bleeding will stop anytime soon. Investors should keep exposure to a minimum or be entirely in cash.

Tuesday’s big sell-off following Monday’s rebound shows why investors shouldn’t jump to the first upside in a correction. This is the time to look for stocks that hold up and have strong or rising RS lines. But as the sudden drop in Tesla shares showed, resilient names and sectors can suddenly break down. This is the time to create watchlists, not to make new purchases.
