Dow Jones Futures Fall: Stock Market Rally Signals It’s No Bear Run; What To Do Now

Dow Jones futures fell slightly Sunday night, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures.


The stock market rally had another big week, with the Nasdaq running higher amid major news from the latest Fed outlook to the jobs report to massive earnings from Apple (AAPL), Meta Platforms (META) and more.

Don’t be surprised to see a market pullback after the big gains in recent weeks, with Tesla (TSLA) and Apple stock up strongly yet again. Friday may have been the start of a pullback, with (AMZN) plunging on its weak earnings and outlook. But with the uptrend showing more signs that it’s more than a bear market rally, investors can continue to gradually add exposure over time.

Dow Jones giant Microsoft (MSFT), lithium and fertilizer giant SQM (SQM), auto parts maker Autoliv (ALV), Pure Storage (PSTG) and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX) are stocks near buy points.

Microsoft, Autoliv and FCX stock already have earnings out of the way, while SQM and PSTG stock aren’t due for several weeks. MSFT stock is on IBD Long-Term Leaders.

Onsemi (ON), formerly ON Semiconductor, reports early Monday. The EV-focused chipmaker surged 9.8% this past week, breaking out of a cup base to a new high. But ON stock is now extended.
