8:45 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

The record-breaking pace of the current rally was halted this past week as all the major averages booked weekly losses.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“It doesn’t matter where you came from. All that matters is where you are going.
– Brian Tracy


After trading somewhat indecisively for most of the shortened holiday week, the market took a considerable hit on Friday after U.S. authorities confirmed a second case of coronavirus within the country. There were concerns over the efforts to control the outbreak, along with the potential negative impact on the world economy.

After posting their largest percentage weekly gains since 8/30 last week, all three of the major averages pulled back considerably this past week. More notably each eclipsed their respective 10-day moving average on Friday. The 10-day has been a line which each index has basically held above since they broke out to new highs in mid-December.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed lower every day of the week and ended with a net loss of -358 points or -1.2% and -10 points back under the 29,000 level at 28,990.

This morning, stocks are poised to drop sharply at the open. Dow futures dipped as much as -500 points, or -1.6%, before recovering some losses. The Nasdaq is headed for an even bigger fall.

Britain’s FTSE 100 and Germany’s DAX both fell more than -2% in early trading. Japan’s Nikkei slid -2% as well on a light trading day in Asia, with most markets closed for the Lunar New Year.

Earnings season picks up this week with 14 out of the Dow’s 30 components expected to report during one of the busiest weeks of the season.

Market Pulls Back – Individual Stock Support Level to Watch

The major averages are pulling back today with the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 at their respective 10 DMAs.

The Dow is clearly below, and a close below there would be technically significant.

As we’ve said – the 10-day moving average line is the line to watch for this rally.
