The five best Chinese stocks to watch right now

Stocks to watch

Shares of Dollar Tree rose 5.5% to 164.84 on above-average volume, recovering from the 50-day line and breaking the trendline from late-April tops, providing an early target. DLTR stock with cup base with handle with officer point of purchase over 166.45. The relative strength line has hit new highs, reflecting the better performance of the Dollar Tree than the S&P 500 index. Archival Common Dollar (DG) is its own buying range cup base with handle.

Privia Health stock opened lower, then bounced back from the 21-day line to move higher. PRVA stock rose 7.4% to 31.04 on massive volume, quickly hitting an 11-month high of 33.88. Uber describes itself as doctor’s offices now slightly expanded from July 29 cup base buy points. But investors can view its recent pause above the buy point as a high handle with a buy point of 30.25. That tall handle can be viewed as a regular handle for a longer consolidation from last November.

Halozyme stock rose 4.2% to 46.33, recovering from the 50-day line and breaking a short, but very steep downtrend. That could provide an early entry into HALO stock, which has a flat basis at 48.68 buy points weekly. MarketSmith . chart. That flat base could be seen as an in-base handle from February 2021. The RS line for Halozyme stock is at a new high.

Meanwhile, Northrop stock fell 4.5% to 464.36, although it recovered from below the 50-day line on the day. However, NOC stock almost wiped out last week’s 4.9% gain that triggered a buy signal.

UnitedHealth stock fell 2.35% to 505.24, but closed in the upper half of the range as it found support at the 50-day line. While below the basic double bottom buy point of 507.35, UNH stock has not shown any sell signal yet. UnitedHealth may be working on it right now.

Market aggregation analysis

The major indexes fell sharply shortly after Tuesday’s open, but rebounded, to varying degrees.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed lower, albeit past its worst. The S&P 500 index turned positive just before the closing bell. Nasdaq has returned to solid gains, with Apple stock surging while DDOG, Roblox and Ark stocks rallied, with falling Treasury yields likely to be a big driver.

Datadog rallied 7.25% above the 50-day level. Roblox stock is up 14% in volume to its best level since late April. But those stocks are at highs.

A stock market rally is still underway, although it has come under a lot of pressure over the past week.

Shares of Apple, Google and Amazon recovered their 21-day levels on Tuesday. All major indexes remained below that level, although Nasdaq closed. The 50-day line, the early-June top, and many other resistance points lie above that short-term level.

In addition to the risk of another drop in the 2022 bear market, stocks that look good will send out buy signals, then quickly reverse lower.

Northrop and UNH stocks fall into that category, though they may not be over yet. It’s certainly not a good day for defense and health insurers.

Despite tough days for health insurers, healthcare remains the top sector.

Ideally, the stock market would go sideways for a long time. That will allow more stocks to establish a base, while investors will gain a better understanding of the Federal Reserve and the economy. But the market will do what it will do.

What to do now

Stock market activity on Tuesday was relatively positive, as recession fears were raging in the bond and commodity pits. But the market’s recovery is under pressure. There are very few good stocks to buy or set up, and stocks that are likely to act are prone to sudden reversals.

Investors buying, for example, a biotech, should keep their positions small and be ready to take profits quickly and keep any losses small.

When a protracted market rally holds, investors will have more opportunities to increase their exposure and let the winners run away. For now, the focus should be on preparing for the next bull market.
