Big tech companies are expanding their reach, but not expanding them
Just like late August, large tech companies once again lead the Nasdaq as they expand. But there is a major difference. In late August, the tech giants have generally extended over long distances. Now, most of them are rules or just break.
In addition to the aforementioned tech giants, Google and Netflix are in range to buy. Amazon and Nvidia are approaching early entries as they bounce off the 50-day streak.
But aside from Netflix, all of these stocks are making money in the next couple of weeks. So investors should avoid taking a new stance beyond the results, unless adopted Profits options strategy.
Stock market rise analysis
The Nasdaq ended the week 7.8% above its 50-day moving average. This is lower than 8.1% on Friday but still above the 6% level indicating an extension of the index. This increases downside risks, but the market could continue to expand further. Last August, the Nasdaq became increasingly separate from its moving averages, eventually closing 11.2% above the 50-day line on September 2. Then the Nasdaq fell 5% on September 3. Today, wiping off all August gains.

Blantyre (PLTRIt rose 25% on Friday. at the same time, GameStop (GMEIt surged 53% on Friday, extending an enormous short pressure to hit a record high, suddenly forgetting a 13-year recession.
Feeling upwardReally high, it has probably been more prolific over the past several days.
That’s a choppy mix heading into this massive earnings week. If Apple, Tesla and Facebook stocks, for example, were disappointed on Wednesday night, it could lead to sharp and widespread losses. Alternatively, profits could be the catalyst for more market gains, at least in the short term.
Ideally, the market might move sideways or decline modestly over a few weeks, leaving the 50 days closing the gap on the Nasdaq. A short, shallow pullback, such as the market two weeks ago, can provide temporary relief. But this inspires a more risky investment as investors lose slippage in the market.
But the market will do what it will.
What should you do?
Check your current holdings. You may want to take a partial profit by selling hard, especially for stocks that appear to be overextended. Do you have enough reserves in stocks that are heading into profits this week? On a larger scale, what are your lines in the sand for your individual stocks and overall portfolio?
Be wary about new purchases, especially dividends.
But right now, investors don’t need to take a defensive stance. The stock market rally, from major indices to blue-chip stocks, works well. Just be prepared to move.
