What to do in the stock market
Now is an important time to read IBD’s big picture column after the stock market trend has moved from “uptrend under pressure” to “confirmed uptrend”.
At this time, it is important to be flexible. Despite the recent gains, investors should maintain a cautious attitude, and limit exposure to no more than 40%. Wait for more confirmation of continued strength before adding more exposure. An immediate distribution would be a sign of staying more defensive.
If your recent stock purchases continue to make progress, you should feel more confident about the stock market rally. But sharp reversals and losing trades will, of course, be signs of keeping more of your powder dry.
