Market Time and IBD’s ETF Market Strategy
What You Should Do Now
Until the S&P 500 moves well above the 200-day line, investors may not want to add exposure right now. With Thanksgiving holiday shopping and critical economic data next week, stock prices could be high in the short term.
That can help stocks from different sectors to establish and have a moving number that gains ground. Investors should be building their checklist. It’s definitely time to look beyond traditional tech growth stocks, which are generally underperforming right now.
Given that many leaders are extended by moving numbers, such as Excelerate Energy or BTU products, it is important that you look for the first entry and act quickly.
