Stocks in shopping areas

Tesla stock rose 1.7% to 217.61 on Monday after hitting a 2023 high of 221.29 intraday. Stocks are still in range for a buy point of 207.79, but are at the upper end of the 5% hunting zone. Tesla stock broke Friday from what is either a cup or a double-bottom base. The electric vehicle giant has advanced on above-average volume for six consecutive sessions.

FTNT stock jumped 4.6% to 71.27, reclaiming a buy point of 69.07 from a flat V-shaped base, according to MarketSmith analysis. The volume was heavy. Fortinet initially broke out on May 19, but quickly reversed to test the 50-day line before recovering.

DXCM stock climbed 1.7% to 124.66 on Monday, also hitting the fixed-base buy point of 126.44 intraday. Stocks recovered the 50-day line at the end of last week and broke a short trendline. Dexcom stock hit a short-term high on Monday.

SHOP stock gained 2.8% to 59.92, rebounding from its 21-day line. This offers early entry, although Shopify stock has teased aggressive buy points several times over the past few weeks and then quickly slumped. Stocks are working on a possible basis after a powerful earnings gap in early May.

WING stock jumped 3%% to 203.69, bouncing off the 50-day and 10-week lines, just above a previous consolidation. Stocks also recovered their 21-day line and broke a descending trendline. The volume was light but not terrible. Investors could use Monday’s move as a buy signal.

Market rally analysis

The stock market rally saw a slide on Monday, but looked normal after last week’s big gains. The Nasdaq was initially in the lead, but turned red as Apple stock reversed. The S&P 500 too.

The Dow Jones retreated modestly, but is still above its 50-day line.

The Russell 2000 fell sharply, closing just below the 200-day line. This is a reflection of a low range. After the winners dominated last week, the losers won easily on Monday.

The Nasdaq 100 edged up 0.1%, off session highs. It is still 9.3% above its 50-day line.

The First Trust Nasdaq 100 Equal Weighted Index ETF (QQEW) also rose 0.1%.

The Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF (RSP) fell 0.3%, but remains above its 50-day and 200-day line. It will be important to maintain this level and eventually progress towards the highs of 2023.

The market rally was led by tech titans and AI stocks, including many chipsets. While some continued to rise on Monday, the reversal in Apple stocks and the recent pullback in chips aren’t entirely unwelcome.

While market breadth was negative on Monday, some sectors showed or hinted at strength.

This includes cybersecurity, with FTNT stock being just one of the top performers. Several restaurant names, including WING stock, are still on the menu. Medical products and systems such as DXCM inventory are at or near the entrances. Homebuilders and, to a lesser extent, travel stocks are doing well.

Time the Market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

What to do now

After last week’s broad bullish rally, investors should look to gradually increase their exposure.

Several stocks issued flash buy signals on Monday, although not a flood given Monday’s slightly lower action.

Don’t force your way into strong exposure. Let yourself be attracted by the recovery of the market. If the market is steadily improving and the major stocks are giving buy signals, you can add to your portfolio over time. If the market starts to falter, you will want to keep an eye on the exit.

Prepare your watch lists. Finding emerging leaders and spotting early entrants is essential.
