Stock Market Today

“On Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 1.05% and the S&P 500 declined 1.45%. The Nasdaq dumped 2.2% while the small-cap Russell 2000 lost 1.3%.”

“Volume rose on both the Nasdaq and S&P 500 vs. the prior session. The increased volume results in a new distribution day on both indexes. So, the distribution count is even more elevated, a bearish sign.”

“IBD’s stock market outlook remains at “uptrend under pressure” following sharp losses in recent sessions. That means investors should be maintaining cautious and defensive stances, with an already reduced market exposure. IBD readers should be avoiding most breakouts, unless they occur in stocks with top-notch fundamentals and technicals.”

Even so, it’s best to start with a smaller position due to the tendency for breakouts to quickly fail. Meanwhile, further losses on the major stock indexes would push them below their early November lows, which are key levels to watch.

Instead of tuning out in this difficult market environment, investors should be using the relative strength line to find the next cycle of market leaders. Remember, the RS line measures a stock’s price performance vs. the S&P 500 and is the blue line on every IBD chart.

If the market is down, good stocks will outperform by treading water. When the market rebounds, stocks with the best relative strength should bounce back even stronger than the market.”The Innovator IBD 50 ETF (FFTY) lost 1.5% Thursday as the ETF hit another new low.
