Top Five China Stocks to Watch Now

Stocks to Watch

Dexcom stock rose 1.7% to 112.92 and found support at the 21-day moving average. DXCM stock is stalling this month after posting earnings on Oct. Dexcom stock is arguably a long way from a seven-month consolidation with a buy point of 123.46. Investors can buy DXCM stock on an early entry from the 21-day line, perhaps using Tuesday’s high of 113.88 as a specific buy point.

Medpace stock fell 1.3% to 218.81 on Wednesday. Stocks have been consolidating near record highs since jumping 38% on Oct. Since then, the MEDP stock has been making a messy handle in the deep, annual pot bottom. While stocks have experienced some major volatility throughout the day, MEDP stock is currently on track to form a narrow three-week pattern through Friday’s close. Traders can use the close of 226.57 on November 15 as an early entry and go above most of the recent trades.

NBIX stock fell 1.5% to 118.97. Stocks are consolidating near multi-year highs that were extended after a breakout in October. Despite a drop from the 50-day line last week, Neurocrine stock has a narrow three-week pattern and is heading into its fourth week. Technically, there is a buy point of 126.09, but investors may want to wait for a slightly calmer move.

Shockwave stock was up 4.7% to 264.06 on Wednesday, breaking above the 21-day line but hitting resistance at the 50-day line. SWAV stock has rebounded over the past week after a failed breakout at the end of October and continued sharp selling on gains. A new bottom will take more time, but aggressive traders can use a strong move above 50 days as an early entry.

UNH stock rose 1.3% to 529.71, climbing above the 50-day and 21-day lines after briefly cutting below the 200-day line last week. UnitedHealth stock was formerly an IBD Long Term Leader and still shares many characteristics. Traders can use a bounce from the 50-day line as an early entry or a Long Term Leader entry. UNH stock needs to break new ground after rapidly failing from the mug bottom last month.

Market Rally Analysis

The stock market rally contributed to Tuesday’s gains. The S&P 500 just hit its November 15 intraday high and closed within 1% of its 200-day line.

Russell 2000 has reached the 200-day mark.

The Nasdaq has continued its recovery from Tuesday’s 21-day moving average, although it is well below its short-term high on November 15 and well below 200 days.

The Dow Jones is close to 20 points from its intraday high on August 16.

The S&P 500 is trading decisively above its 200-day line – roughly a year of falling tops coinciding with the trendline – a major test for a market rally.

A range of economic data could change Fed rate expectations and thus the stock market. On Wednesday, November 30, the October JOLTS report will show job postings and Fed chair Jerome Powell will speak later in the day. On Thursday, the Fed’s favorite inflation indicator, the PCE price index, will be released along with jobless claims and the ISM manufacturing index. The November employment report will be released on Friday, November 2nd.

Ideally, the market would move sideways for a few days and at least let the 21-day line move towards these economic reports.

Time the Market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy

what to do now

The market rally has shown some nice gains this week, with more stocks flashing buy signals over the past few days. As a result, investors could add a little more risk.

However, with the S&P 500 hovering below the 200-day line and the critical economic situation for the Fed next week, they may want to be cautious about making significant new purchases.

Also consider taking partial profits from rapidly depleting stocks. Stocks are making short-term advances amid a volatile uptrend and industry rotation.

Still, investors should work hard on their investment shopping lists, looking for setups and suable names in a variety of industries.
