Chevron stock rose 1.45% to 180.94, slightly below the 182.50 buy point and just above the 21-day line. CVX stock has been trading around that official buy point all month.

Analysis of market recovery

The stock market rally is backing off with key technical tests and economic data tapped, along with uncertainty over China’s Covid policies.

The S&P 500 Index is extending its downtrend from just below its 200-day moving average, but still above its 21-day line. The Russell 2000, which fell below the 200-day and 21-day line on Monday, has rebounded above the 21-day line.

The sluggish Nasdaq has dipped below its 21-day line and is closing above its 50-day line.

Shares of Apple, Tesla and other supercaps are weighing on the Nasdaq and S&P 500 indexes.

Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF (RSP) remains above its 200-day moving average.

But don’t overstate Apple’s impact. Many of the top stocks are testing either falling below buy points or circling decent gains.

Fortunately, the stock market isn’t focused on Fed speeches and key economic data. That could mean the market could recover if there are no negative surprises, with greater upside potential if upcoming headlines are positive.

But the market rally will do what it will.

Market Timing with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

What to do now

With the market recovering, not many stocks gave buy signals. Investors should probably wait for Powell’s speech and economic data to be released before making significant new purchases. Investors may want to lock in at least part of their profits in the winning stock, especially if the winning stock is moving back to a buy point.

If the market recovers soon, a large number of stocks will be able to operate. But a lot of today’s interesting stocks will start to take a hit if the major indexes drop significantly from here.

Therefore, investors need to remain engaged and flexible. Keep your watchlist up to date but also have exit strategies for your holdings.
