Dow Jones futures fell modestly on Friday morning, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures. The stock market rebounded sharply on Thursday as 10-year Treasury yields continued to rise. This time the Nasdaq did not close below the key support, did not go down.
Nvidia (NVDA) and Teladok Health (TDOC) Round-tripping in stocks joined with big gains, while Tesla (TSLA) sank further below its 10-week line. Investors should be playing defense, especially in tech stocks. For those waiting to see how many big winners catch up over the weekend, some key sales or holding decisions are coming.
Meanwhile, Game Stop (GME) has come in well on its intraday high. GME stock rose 19% to 108.73 after doubling on Wednesday. But it closed with its intraday high of 184.68.

Stock market rally
The stock market boom suffered a broad-based loss on Thursday, with growth continuing to decline.
The stock market traded 1.75% lower on Thursday, a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a record high. The S&P 500 index dropped 2.45%, but found support on the 50-day line. Nasdaq sank 3.5%%, Nov. Closed below its 0-day line for the first time since. It is still above Tuesday’s intraday low.
The 10-year Treasury yield rose 14 basis points to 1.52%. That rising yield growth is putting pressure on stocks.
Nvidia reported strong earnings and guidance, but sank 8.2% to 532.30. That’s more than a round trip, up 10% from 560.07 by points and is now below the 50-day line. CVO Jane-Hassan “Jensen” Huang told CNBC’s Jim Kramer that he is confident Arm Holdings will take over.
Teledock stock fell 14% to 219.55. Which cleared 30% of the run from 236.76 handle entry and is now down 7.3% from the buy point. TDOC stock is also below its 50-day line.
Among the best ETFs, the Innovator IBD50 ETF (FFTY) fell 4.4%, while the Innovator IBD Breakout Chances ETF (BOUT) sank 5.5%. Eicher Extended Tech-Software Software Sector ETF (IGV) is down 9.9%. Vanek Vectors Semiconductor ETF (SMH) fell 5.6% with Nvidia stock key holding.
Reflecting on more speculative story stocks, Arc Innovation ETF sank 6.4% and Arc Genomics ETF 5.8%. His parent ARK Invest’s largest holding is Tesla Stock, and it made a fuss over the EV maker earlier in the week. TDOC stock is the second top-five holding. And ARK bought several shares of Teladok on Thursday.
With the onset of ARK Investment withdrawals, its daily buying and selling, especially in low-liquid names, can be difficult to get out of.
The ARKK and ARKG fell overnight as Tesla humbly retreated. Teladok, Roku (RQ), Baidu (BIDU) and Square (SQ), the other top five Arc Invest holdings, also retreated on Friday morning.
Market Rally Analysis
Then whether we are in the isolation of the broad market or in the rotation of the sharp sector, growth is about to turn into stocks. The Nasdaq Composite has resisted the 21-day lethal moving average and is now below 50 days. The tech-heavy index is down 5.4% this week, down from 1.6% last week.
Maybe this is the moment when the stock market rebounded. But the current trend is not your friend. Also, even if the market starts to move higher, it does not mean that last year’s speculative growth will continue or move forward. The cyclone and financial years have maintained well this week, and it probably continues to move forward.
The Dow Jones is out just 0.3% for the week, and down only because of the Tech Titans Apple (AAPL) and Micro .ft (MSFT).
Weekly selling signals
Investors should always sell the stock if it falls below 7% -8% of the purchase price, and they should not, like Nvidia and Teladoc, turn a double-digit gain into a loss.
But selling winning shares is both an art and a science. One way to reduce panic sales is to wait until the week before a stock position sells or closes completely. If a stock is decisively below its 10-week line – 2% or more – it could be a sell signal. (Sometimes the stock will have little support areas from the 10-week line, so investors will also wait for that level break.)
But if a stock is critically below such support, do you sell? A lot of it comes at your expense. If you look below 30% it comes down to below 10%, but you can exit when you benefit. If you are still above 100%, you have more leeway. Your conviction is also the key. If you think a stock is likely to gain a lot from the current levels, you can avoid most of this situation. If you do not have this conviction you can cash in your chips.
Tesla stock is down 13% from its 10-week line, falling sharply this week in huge quantities. It will be a sell signal, but not automatic.
If you bought at 466 buy points in November, you’ve seen a 93% increase in half still a 46% increase. You probably don’t want to see that steam evaporate too much. If you buy around 290 or 174, it will also be easier to simplify the holding of the Tesla stock. But it is also understandable to sell your or many Tesla stocks.
Early sales pay off
As the Nasdaq expanded in January and February, IBD suggested selling strongly and cutting exposure to various pullbacks. The goal was to stop some profits and save capital when market conditions and individual stock action became a bit vague.
In a very short period of time, stocks may have been steadily higher. But on Thursday, the Nasdaq closed where it was in January. 13. FFTY ETF is back to where it was in January. 14 while ARKK is at pre-Christmas levels. Most likely, if you took a profit from mid-January to early February, you are in a better position today.
