5 Stock Market Warning Signals For Fall 2020

Holding steady. The benchmark S&P 500 Index and its white hot compadre the NASDAQ 100 have lately been uncharacteristically moving in a direction other than up. Since peaking on Wednesday, September 2, the S&P 500 has fallen by more than -6% and the tech heavy NASDAQ 100 by -10%. Is this recent stock correction simply fleeting? Or is it the start of a bigger fall as we head into the fall of this most unusual year in 2020?

Oh behave! The performance of both the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100 thus far during the recent pullback has been very well behaved from a technical perspective. In many respects, they have been textbook declines. For example, the S&P 500 declined sharply in the three trading days from last Thursday to this Tuesday, only to see the decline come to an immediate halt at its medium-term 50-day moving average support (blue

Wall Street headed for second straight weekly fall

(Reuters) – The S&P 500 was largely flat in afternoon trading on Friday towards the end of another volatile week as investors weighed Oracle’s strong results against data that suggested a long and wobbly economic revival from a coronavirus-led downturn.

Oracle’s shares edged higher after hitting a record high earlier in the session as the cloud services company’s earnings beat estimates and it signaled a recovery in client spending due to higher remote working-led demand.

Trading in so-called “stay-at-home winners” — Apple Inc, Amazon.com Inc, Microsoft Corp and Netflix Inc — were mixed but the mega-caps were set to fall between 5% and 8% for the week, extending losses from last Friday that brought Wall Street’s rally to a screeching halt.

The S&P 500 was headed for the first back-to-back weekly decline since March as concerns about the massive build-up in call options tied to

S&P 500 Drops 60 Points on Volatile Day: Oil Stocks Fall Sharply, Apple Leads Tech Stocks Down Again

The S&P 500 Index (SNPINDEX:^SPX) has been doing its best yo-yo impression over the past week. Today’s close was almost 1.8% lower, giving up almost 60 points after gaining 67 points, or 2%, yesterday. It’s the fourth session in the past five market days that the index, which makes up about 80% of total U.S. stock market capitalization, either gained or lost more than 1.75%. 

This marks nearly a week of high volatility that’s mostly been to the downside. Since a record close of 3,580.84 on Sept. 2, the S&P 500 has lost almost 7% of its value. Today’s sell-off, like most of the volatility we have seen this week, was broad, with the vast majority of the 505 stocks in the index finishing lower. Several sectors saw every stock fall on the day, and no sector had more gainers than losers.
