Stock market rally weakens

The stock market posted a disappointing performance on Thursday, as the Nasdaq and S&P 500 sold off sharply. The Nasdaq more than erased all of the gains from the previous two days, leaving it near its 200-day moving average. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 dropped its 50-day support level.

Thursday’s The Big Picture commented: “Don’t completely give up on the market rally just yet. The Nasdaq found support at its long-term 200-day line earlier this week. This could still provide a launch pad for a further sustained rally, although less likely at this time If the Nasdaq weakens further and removes its 200 day line, then more downside is likely As usual, don’t predict market direction; be flexible and let the market decide your best course of action.”
