A Reversal in the Stock Market
The Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:DJI) fell 1.7% in Friday’s trading session, while the S&P 500 fell 1.5%. The Nasdaq composite index fell 1.5% as well. Since 2009, this is the first time that the market averages have experienced a decline for three consecutive quarters in a row. While everything was going on, both the Dow and the S&P 500 had their worst monthly losses since March of 2020.
It fell over 9% in September and has now declined in each of the last three weeks. Nike (NKE) was by far the poorest performer, with a 12.8% drop in quarterly earnings. The remark was made in The Big Picture column on Friday. “The blue chip index closed at levels last seen in November 2020 as it dived 1.7% for the day and 2.9% for the week.”
Investors are still expecting another effort at a rebound despite the fact that the leading stock indices have reached fresh correction lows. In light of the ongoing selling, investors should keep their money in the bank.
Nevertheless, it is essential for investors to make productive use of this period of reduced activity. Researching market bottoms and compiling a solid watchlist of stocks with significant performance potential are both excellent activities to pursue at this time. The follow-through day, also known as the market bottoming signal, is often the day on which many long-term leaders make their breakout. An expensive error might result from missing up on that early chance.
