What are you doing now

The stock market consolidated losses against losses. Investors need to take action, trimming exposure as recent buys turn losses and longer holdings cut gains.

It can be said that the stock market is back on the rebound. But with the Nasdaq significantly below 50 days and Nvidia looming on the horizon, there’s little reason to get excited about one fine day.

Investors may want to use a market bounce as an opportunity to exit positions.

However, when the strong uptrend resumes, many stocks will provide buying opportunities. So you want to be ready. Keep working on the watchlists, focusing on stocks that show relative strength.

Read the big picture every day to stay in sync with market trend, leading stocks and sectors.
