Dow Jones Futures Today: Treasury Yields, Oil Prices

Ahead of Tuesday’s opening bell, Dow Jones futures fell 0.1% below fair value, while S&P 500 futures were down less than 0.1%. Nasdaq 100 futures are up less than 0.1% from fair value. Keep in mind that overnight action in Dow Jones futures and elsewhere doesn’t necessarily translate to actual trading in the next regular trading session.

The 10-year Treasury yield fell sharply to 3.65% on Monday. Last week, the 10-year Treasury yield briefly exceeded 4%, not in more than a decade.

Meanwhile, U.S. oil prices rose more than 4% on Tuesday as West Texas Intermediate futures traded above $83 a barrel. Last week they fell to their lowest level for the year. On Wednesday, OPEC+ will meet to consider a production cut to support falling oil prices.

What to do in the new stock market rally attempt?

Despite Monday’s strong gains, IBD’s market trend remains in a “market in correction” with strong selling over the past few weeks. That means investors should stay in cash.

However, Monday’s gains sparked a fresh stock market rally attempt which is your Day 1. Day 2 and Day 3 action is irrelevant as long as the index fails to undercut its recent low. Breaking below that low means the rally attempt is over and the market has to try again.

Next, investors should wait for a follow-through day that occurs on day 4 or later. Starting Thursday (Day 4), expect the Nasdaq or S&P 500 to rise sharply with more volume than the previous session. This is a following day. It gives investors the green light to start buying leading stocks that break out past the correct buy points. It should align your portfolio and mindset with the stock market by gradually investing capital in leading stocks.

Now, ahead of a possible follow-through day, is the perfect time to build a strong watchlist of top-performing stocks. Many long-term leaders tend to break out at or near the follow-through, the market’s bottom signal. Missing this early opportunity can be a costly mistake.

Friday’s The Big Picture column commented: “Market averages have now fallen for the third straight quarter for the first time since 2009. The consolation for investors is that IBD research finds that bear markets form over three or four waves of intense selling. That looks like the third leg.”

Gas station and convenience store leader Murphy USA is setting up a flat base with a buy point of 303.19. Shares gained 3.1% on Monday and are nearing potential resistance at their 50-day moving average. A decisive recapture of this level would be bullish on the stock’s base building prospects.

Wednesday’s IBD 50 Stocks To Watch pick, Neurocrine Biosciences, is building a flat base with a buy point of 109.36, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. Shares are now just 2% from the buy point after gaining 0.5% on Monday. The RS line made a new high on Friday, a bullish signal.

Tesla stock

Tesla shares fell 8.6% on Monday, closing at their lowest level since July 18 after the company missed forecasts for weekend vehicle deliveries.

The electric vehicle giant delivered 343,830 electric vehicles in the third quarter, up 42% year over year and beating the record 310,048 in the first quarter. It was also 35% higher than the 254,695 in the second quarter. The Shanghai plant faced a protracted shutdown and slow recovery in the second quarter due to Covid lockdowns.

However, analysts had expected Tesla deliveries of 350,000 to 370,000 with the consensus reading just above 360,000. Tesla cited an increased number of vehicles in transit. But that may reflect weaker Chinese demand, which is spurring an earlier-than-usual surge in exports from Shanghai.

Shares are more than 40% off their 52-week high.

Dow Jones Leaders: Apple, Microsoft

Among Dow Jones stocks, Apple shares rose 3.1% on Monday, enduring a three-day losing streak. Still, shares are more than 20% below their 52-week high and below their 50- and 200-day moving averages.

Microsoft rose 3.3% on Monday, recovering from Friday’s 52-week low. The software giant remains more than 30% below its 52-week high.
