Yes, The 493 Can Carry the Rally Baton††

By Charles Payne, CEO & Principal Analyst

The title of our Hotline report on Friday was: CAN THE 493 CARRY THE RALLY? 

Well, we got an emphatic answer, with an emphatic reversal.  The S&P 500 opened higher then swooned big time, only to regain its footing around noon and then surge in the last thirty minutes of trading.

The move was extraordinary. 

Last week was difficult, especially with all the Treasury issuance pushing bond yields higher after poor auction results. 

There was a temperamental aspect to trading all week that lent itself to the possibility of a massive selloff as pressures mounted.  There was a moment of truth on Friday and somehow the market turned higher on huge volume.


Same Tide 

All eleven sectors were higher as there was lots of bottom fishing.

Market Breadth

Advancers swamped decliners, especially on the NYSE.  The NASDAQ composite continues to see wide bifurcation resulting in more new lows than highs.

Up Arrows

It’s all up arrows, but where are the opportunities?

The Russell 2000 (IWM) looks very compelling, bouncing off its 50 day moving average. 


The NASDAQ might be vulnerable as tech not named Nvidia (NVDA) are putting in mix performances of late. 


Equal weight underscores how skewed this rally has been. 


What does 493 mean??

Meaning the other 493 stocks of the S&P 500Ö excluding the Mag 7.
