Market Update Into January 29th: TSLA’s Battery Dies

Another big week has come and gone as the indexes continue their push higher and there was quite a bit to be excited about.

  • NFLX announced blockbuster earnings that sent the stock soaring
  • META rejoined the $1T market cap club
  • GOOGL hit new all-time highs
  • Many small caps appear to be starting their climb out of multi-year bases

That said, there were some rough spots. Most notably, TSLA‘s double miss, which caused the stock to gap down 10% on Thursday. We now find ourselves once again at ‘Extreme Greed’ levels per the Fear & Greed Index, and not a moment too soon, as next week ushers in earnings announcements from AAPL, AMZN, META, GOOGL, and MSFT. That’s 70% of the Mag 7, y’all. Let’s dig into the charts!

Weekly Analysis

The SPY ETF closed the week at $487.41 (+1.03%), continuing its move out of the rising wedge and putting in a weekly high just shy of the 1.618 Fibonacci extension measured from the July 2023 high to the October 2023 low.

After several weeks of strong performance, the QQQ ETF took a bit of a breather this week closing at $423.81 (+0.62%). With the measured move complete, we see a weekly doji candlestick and bearish divergence on RSI.
