What to do now
With the stock market rally showing positive signals, investors certainly could have looked for places to add some exposure. There is still a risk that the pullback may not be over and Tuesday’s buying opportunities will quickly deteriorate. But if you wait for definitive proof that the pullback is over, such as the Nasdaq hitting a new high, then it will be too late to chase stocks.
One option is to take smaller positions in new buys. Be prepared to act quickly and consider taking partial profits early to lock in some gains.
Shop as close to the entrances as possible. This will provide some protection against stock and market reversals.
Definitely have your watchlists ready. A large lead with diverse leadership means it’s harder to track every promising stock. But it’s a good problem to have.
