Cybersecurity giant joins S&P 500 index
market rise analysis
The stock market rally this week showed further strength, along with encouraging signs of improving breadth and leadership.
The Nasdaq continued its rally, hitting a 13-month high on Friday. But last week he wasn’t just the AI playing.
The S&P 500 has definitively breached the 2023 range and is approaching the August 2022 high.
After testing the 200-day line for much of the week, the Dow Jones broke through the 50-day line on Friday. After breaking below the 50-day line on Wednesday, the Russell 2000 climbed to its highest level since early March and crossed the 200-day line for the first time since.
The First Trust Nasdaq 100 Equal Weighted Index ETF (QQEW) rose 1.4% for the week, the highest level in 52 weeks.
Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF (RSP) rose 1.9% for the week. Friday’s gain of 2.2% took the RSP clearly above the 50- and 200-day lines, breaking the downtrend dating back to early February.

The Nasdaq and Nasdaq 100 have extended, with the Nasdaq 100 now 9.5% above the 50-day line. Ideally, big tech companies, especially his AI industry, slow down or come to a halt while other sectors grow. Friday largely followed this pattern, with the Dow Jones, Russell 2000 and RSP comfortably outperforming the Nasdaq 100’s 0.7% gain.
This has created buying opportunities for some, including Tesla, Renner, Dexcom and JP Morgan.
Of course, just because it’s been strong for a few days, it doesn’t mean that the overall market rally is definitely underway. From a macro perspective, the debt ceiling is no longer a concern. Until just a few days ago, the Fed seemed poised for a June 14 rate hike, but now it appears poised to pause. With earnings season (finally) coming to an end, the news cycle may enter a relatively quiet period.
Timing the Market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy
what to do now
Investors should pay attention as the market rally begins to gain momentum and expand. Yes, this could also be a head fake. The marginal advance could resume, or worse, the market-wide rally could break or collapse.
But right now, the market is sending bullish signals. If we wait until a strong bull market undoubtedly takes hold, all the major stocks will do well.
Investors should consider adding more exposure, especially if they are mostly cash-managed. However, do so gradually to minimize the impact of sudden market reversals.
Being flexible is important. And just as you don’t want to get stuck in a bearish mindset, don’t be blindly bullish even if the overall market or your position is shaken.
Now is an important time to create a watchlist. Choose a group of stocks to watch, but cast a wide net to monitor a wide range of potential leaders.
