Stock Market Rally: Nasdaq Set For Another Test?
Amid the current stock market rally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 indexes extended win streak to two sessions Friday, as they both near all-time highs.
Meanwhile, the tech-heavy Nasdaq remains below its key 50-day moving average. The Nasdaq will need to overcome this key hurdle in order to maintain its upward trajectory. The 50-day line is a critical potential resistance level. If the Nasdaq decisively clears it, then new highs could be on the horizon.
Friday’s Big Picture commented, “The sharp stock market gains gave the look of a follow-through rally confirmation. The S&P 500’s gain in higher volume qualified as a follow-through. Leading stocks performed well — much better than earlier in the week. With new strength in indexes and top stocks, the market uptrend resumed, as far as IBD’s market outlook goes.”
Bitcoin briefly topped $61,000 in mid-March to hit an all-time high. The price of Bitcoin hit its high-water mark on March 13, topping out at $61,556.

Stocks Near Buy Zones: Alphabet, Facebook
According to Leaderboard commentary, “Alphabet has made better progress than other big-cap techs lately. Support at the 21-day line is now flimsy. Watch for the stock to find support as it tests the 50-day line. The last base was second stage.”
Fellow FANG stock leader Facebook is tracing a cup with handle with a 299.81 buy point. Shares ended Friday about 5% away from the new buy point.
