The five best Chinese stocks to watch right now

Energy stocks near buy point

Enphase stock rose 4% to 320.44, closing above 316.97 cup with handle buy points for the first time. However, the last three times ENPH stock has rallied to these areas, it has reversed lower. Enphase stocks tend to be highly volatile on a daily basis. So, investors can see if ENPH stock returns to its rapidly rising 21-day moving average.

Several other LNG stocks are showing strength, with Flexible LNG (FLNG) exit and Cheniere Energy (LNG) reclaim its 50-day line.

BTU stock rose 6.7% to 29.62, just below a 30.15 handle buy point during a seven-month consolidation. Tuesday’s move broke the trendline of the handle, providing an early entry. However, BTU stock is 9.3% above the 21-day moving average and 17% above the 50-day moving average. The handle was formed after strong earnings from Peabody Energy.

CVR Energy stock rose 4.85% to 40.85, back above the old buy point of 39.81 could still be considered valid. In addition, CVI stock has a three tight weeks sample has entry 42.31. A break above 41.31 could help early entry into that tight pattern.

EQT stock jumped nearly 6% to 43.79, breaking above the 50-day line after recovering from the 200-day line on Monday. The stock is breaking a downward sloping trend line. The official buy point is 52.07.

EE stock rose 9.6% to 30, beating a 28.49 cup-with-handle buy point on above-average volume, according to MarketSmith Analysis. The move to a record close erased a lot of the deals that took place since Excelerate Energy’s April IPO. EE stock had early entries on Friday and Monday, though trading below normal on those days. Excelerate is now slightly extended out of the buy zone and well extended from the 21-day line.

Analysis of market recovery

The equity market rally continued to show constructive action, trading in a tight range after a modest rally and support last week. On Tuesday, the major indexes rebounded from Monday’s declines.

The S&P 500 recovered from the 10-day line, right at 4,000, as it approached the 200-day line. While not above the intraday high of November 15, it is the index’s best close in more than two months.

The 50-day line is only started to move higher on the S&P 500.

The Russell 2000 is getting very close to its 200-day mark. The S&P MidCap 400, which held the 200-day line last week, added more.

The leading Dow Jones topped 34,000 for the first time in three months, just below the August 16 peak. The lagging Nasdaq found support at the 21-day line, just above the 50-day line, but failed to offset it. all losses on Monday.

All of these indicators are working on the handle, with the Dow on top. Most stocks follow the action of the major indexes, so a lot of handles are forming on stocks near the buy point. A slightly longer pause, perhaps until important economic reports next weekend, will allow the moving averages to start catching up.

Market Timing with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

What to do now

Until the S&P 500 moves definitively above the 200-day line, investors may not want much exposure at the moment. With the Thanksgiving holiday disrupting trading and key Fed economic data next week, the market rally could be flat in the short term.

That can help stocks from a variety of sectors establish handles and have moving averages move up. Investors should build their watchlist. This is definitely the time to look beyond traditional tech growth stocks, most of which are currently lagging behind.

Since many leaders are extended from moving averages, such as Excelerate Energy or BTU stock, it’s all the more important to look for early entry points and act quickly.
