The Top Sectors to Trade as Markets Grapple With New Inflation Data

by | Feb 11, 2022 | Stock Market Sectors

U.S. stocks opened flat Thursday’s following  sharp sell-off thanks to higher-than-expected inflation data — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.

The S&P 500 and Dow are both holding above their 200-day moving averages, an important level of support, despite the market turmoil.

On the other hand, the Nasdaq 100 is trading below its 200-day moving average. If it fails to rally, it could drop lower once again. But when the Nasdaq 100 typically reaches these levels, it tends to bounce higher. 

Meanwhile, earnings reports remain strong.

Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UA) beat analysts’ estimates, causing shares to initially jump 7% before falling 2.5% premarket on concerns regarding supply chain expenses and increased shipping costs.

Shares of Zillow Group Inc. (Nasdaq: Z) also rose 13.5% premarket after the company reported a smaller-than-expected quarterly loss and higher revenue as it plans to exit the home-flipping business faster.  

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn whether stocks are set to break down or head higher… key levels for the major sectors… a review of the recent Consumer Price Index data and its impact on the bond market… which sectors are outperforming and which are lagging… plus the best way to analyze current market action.
