Dow Jones futures were little changed overnight, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures. Toll Brothers (TOL) And Urban Outfitters (Urban) reported on Tuesday night, with nvidia (NVDA) big loom.
The stock market rally was lackluster on Tuesday, with the Dow turning negative and the Nasdaq cutting initial gains. Major indices remain below key levels while the range was once again thin.
The market is still correcting with huge news coming out. Investors should act accordingly.
Nvidia stock reversed lower from the breach on Tuesday after Monday’s strong move.
It’s hard to overstate the importance of Nvidia’s earnings with the market in an uncertain state. Not only will the reaction of Nvidia stock be a big factor for the technology and the broader market, but Nvidia’s earnings and guidance will be of great importance to dozens of companies, from chip makers from Broadcom (AVGO) And Marvell technology (Morley) to software makers such as service now (now) And Adobe (ADBE), in addition to mega maps such as Microsoft (MSFT), Meta platforms (meta) and the parent of Google the alphabet (Google).
Many of these stocks are approaching potential buy signals, but they could also be potential short candidates.

Nvidia’s earnings are due Wednesday night, with expectations high. At least seven analysts have upgraded or raised their price targets for NVDA stock in the past several sessions.
Nvidia stock rose to an all-time high of 481.87 on the day, briefly clearing a short consolidation. But shares retreated, falling 2.8% to 456.68. It is still above the 50-day line after rising 8.5% on Tuesday, flashing buy signals. The RSI line, the blue line in the provided charts, reached a new high on Monday.
AI stocks await Nvidia’s results
Meanwhile, AVGO and Marvell stocks are down slightly, both of which are hitting resistance at the 50-day moving average. Marvell’s earnings are due Friday, with Broadcom next week.
NOW stock rose slightly, and also hit the 50-day resistance. ADBE stock fell, extending a short consolidation with support at key levels. Adobe and ServiceNow both have AI partnerships with Nvidia. snowflake (snow) Wednesday night’s earnings may also pay software names, along with leading maker of artificial intelligence chips Nvidia.
MSFT stock remains below the 50-day line after the post-earnings sell-off. META stock is just below this key level, while Google stock is in buy territory. All three are major buyers of Nvidia AI chips.
Stocks near the 50-day lines could offer buy signals with a strong reaction to Nvidia’s earnings. But they may also be potential shortcomings.
Market rally analysis
Major indices came in from their highs on Tuesday morning to finish mixed, but the overall picture remained unchanged. The market continues to attempt to go higher within the ongoing correction, with a narrow breadth for the time being.
Investors should look for a follow-up day to confirm the rally attempt. It may come as early as Wednesday, but it would be hard to get excited about FTD just moments before Nvidia’s earnings. An FTD after Nvidia’s earnings Wednesday night or Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s Jackson Hole speech Friday morning seems more plausible.
Also, if Treasury yields and the US dollar continue to rise, it’s hard to see the stock market seeing a sustained rally, especially high-value growth names.
While some technology stocks such as Broadcom and ServiceNow may be built, don’t neglect the energy sector or the various groups associated with construction.

What are you doing now
Few stocks flash buy signals, and this is probably for the best.
The stock market is still in a correction. This is not the time to be aggressive, especially in the area of technology.
When a market rally shows signs of real strength, then investors can increase their exposure. Nvidia’s earnings or Fed Chairman Powell’s Jackson Hole speech will likely be the positive catalyst confirming a fresh rally. But don’t try to guess how these events will play out or how the market will react.
