Five best Chinese stocks to watch now


Nvidia stock

Nvidia shares rose 9.8% to 281.50 on high volume after a few days’ pause. A trader could have used Thursday’s move above this week’s highs, roughly coinciding with the peak in early February, to initiate a new position, but the risks are high. Thursday’s move was more suited to additional buying, if anything.

AMD Stock

AMD shares rose 5.8% to 120.53, breaking the 50- and 200-day lines. An aggressive trader could have used this as an opportunity to take an early position, but there is a lot of resistance overhead.

AVGO Actions

Broadcom shares advanced 4.5% to 626.43, beating an early entry of 614.74. AVGO shares are moving towards consolidation point of purchase from 677.86. the relative strength linethe blue line on the charts provided is already near the highs.

BHP shares

BHP shares rose 1.8% to 74.27, clearing a cup with handle purchase point of 73.68. Investors could have taken a position on March 18, when the mining giant broke out of a downtrend in mango.

Mining and metal games have been trending upwards but are prone to significant setbacks.

Oil Stock Marathon

MPC shares rose 1.2% to 81.39, closing just below 81.49 flat bottom point of purchase, according to MarketSmith Analysis. Shares reached 81.75 intraday.

Marathon Petroleum is a major US refiner, as well as a retailer and shipper of petroleum products, so it is not as closely tied to crude prices as, say, shale oil producers.

google shares

Shares of Google rose 2.4% to 2,831.44, bouncing again from its 200-day moving average and moving slightly above Tuesday’s high. Investors can buy GOOGL shares now as an early entry or as a long-term leader.

SMTA actions

Anthem shares advanced 2.5% to 473.73, again above buy points at 470.12 and 472.11.

United Health (UNH) and Molina Health (medical officer) rose within their buying zones. CVS Health (CVS) and HCA health (HCAs) are also working on points of purchase.


Time the market with IBD’s ETF market strategy


Market recovery analysis

The stock market rally rebounded on Thursday, closing near session highs. The Nasdaq led while the S&P 500 fell back above its 200-day moving average. The Dow Jones, little changed for the week, closed above its 50-day line once again.

Sideways action or a modest pullback in the major indices here would not be a bad thing. It would allow the butts to finish the bases and form handles, or at least longer resistance areas.

If the market rally doesn’t stop here, the major indices could do so near their early February peaks.

While it would have been nice to see Nvidia stock pause for a few more days, it’s definitely a positive to see chip names rally. It’s hard to see a technological breakthrough without chip stocks playing a big role.

Energy and commodity stocks such as Marathon Petroleum and shares of BHP still look strong. Health insurers, like ANTM stock, trade around buy points. Some biotech and pharmaceutical companies, such as Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (RAIN) could be working on tall handles or handles. Some network stocks still look strong.

Some travel plays are trying to carve out new consolidations, but could use a little more time to extend their V-shaped patterns.

Between the megacaps, Apple (AAPL) rose for the eighth session in a row, still in the range of an early entry and close to an official breakout. But it would be great to see a handle, or at least a pause. father of google Alphabet (GOOGLE) is offering a buy signal. Shares of Tesla pulled back above the 1000 level for their eighth straight advance, but could use a handle to offer a lower buying point.

To do

The stock market rally continues to show strong action, recovering from Wednesday’s pullback.

There are buying opportunities, but many stocks are extended or rising from below. Don’t feel obligated to keep adding exposure if you don’t like the settings. If you regained exposure during the previous week, there’s nothing wrong with sitting idly by.

Keep working those watch lists. Some stocks will drop off their lists because they are extended or are now lagging. A new crop of stocks is coming to light.
