Dow Jones Futures: Nasdaq, Nvidia Break Key Support As AI Stocks Sell Off; What To Do Now

Dow Jones futures rose modestly overnight, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures, with the CPI inflation report on tap before Thursday’s open. Walt Disney (DIS) headlined overnight earnings.


The stock market rally lost ground Wednesday. As on Tuesday, the indexes came off morning lows, but this time they faded significantly into the close. The Nasdaq composite fell below its 50-day moving average for the first time since early 2023.

Winners: Disney stock turned modestly higher after announcing Disney+ price hikes after initially dipping on weak revenue and overall subscribers. WYNN stock rose modestly. So did ODD stock after its first earnings report as a public company.

FLNC stock was little changed, wavering between gains and losses.

Novo Nordisk (NVO) and Alibaba (BABA) report early Thursday. NVO stock gapped out of a base Tuesday after the Danish drug giant reported that its weight-loss drug Wegovy cuts heart disease risks by 20%. BABA stock has pulled back in August but the Chinese e-commerce giant has an early entry above its July 31 high.
