China’s Top Five Markets to Watch Now
Share to Watch
ELF shares were clearly cut. Shares jumped 4.4% to 58.05 on Friday, breaking from a flat base to more than double the normal range, according to MarketSmith analysis. The relative strength line has hit new highs.
SLB stock rose 3.5% to 54.50 Friday, extending a break from the 50-day line and clearing a trade price of 53.97.

Shares of UTHR moved up slightly from its 10-week range as the market traded lower. United Thera may be able to use some momentum to clear a short-term deficit.
PODD stock regained its 50-day line, but retreated to close below the 21-day line. A rise above the 300 level will offer a quick entry into a flat area.
TJX stock broke from a shallow base near a long and deep chart.
Tesla Roils China EV Market
Tesla on Friday reduced prices in China and the main Asian markets of Japan, Australia and South Korea. It came after fourth-quarter sales data missed forecasts for the second quarter. With backlogs falling fast – which is almost non-existent in China – Tesla needed to act boldly just to try to maintain current deliveries.
Due to some major incentives at the end of the year, some continued in 2023, the price reduction in China may not be as big as it appears above. However, the Tesla Model 3, facing heavy competition in China, is now about $ 600 more than the same BYD Seal, eliminating the $ 10,000 gap in a few months.
Falling prices will lower Tesla prices, the question is how much they will boost Model 3 and Y demand, and for how long.
Tesla’s China prices are attributed in large part to BYD, which is the world’s largest EV manufacturer or a fast No. 2. But BYD makes profits with the car’s expenses. In addition, many of its exports, including Australia and, on January 31, Japan, can also help protect.
China’s EV pricing may be a major concern for EV startups. Nio and XPeng are still losing money. Li Auto has not had the same revenue.
Keep in mind that Tesla’s second drop in China in 10 weeks could be just the beginning of a downward spiral. Tesla has a lot of room to spare while all its rivals, especially BYD, are growing. And they’re all going strong in the $30,000-$50,000 segment where Tesla sits.
Tesla stock fell 8.2% to 113.06 for the week, continuing the heavy selloff. But shares rebounded from Friday’s fresh bear market at 101.81 to end the session up 2.5%. BYD’s stock fell 1.55% on Friday, but is still up 7% for the week, above its 50-day line.
Nio, Li Auto and XPEV sales fell 4.5%, 9.2% and 15%, respectively, on Friday. But they increased by 2%-6% for the week.
Tesla’s sales are looking terrible right now, but none of these EV sales are looking good.

Marketing Integration Research
The stock market took a positive step on Friday.
The Dow Jones rose above its 50-day and 21-day moving averages after hitting resistance in recent days. The Dow is more appropriate in the current market, with manufacturing, health care and many Dow-style companies leading the way, such as Caterpillar.
The S&P 500 broke its 21-day range, even the 50-day range. The Russell 2000 made a 21-day retracement but still has some work to do up to the 50-day.
The S&P MidCap 400 rose above its 21-day, 50-day and 200-day moving averages. So is the Invesco S&P 500 Equal Weight ETF (RSP).
The Nasdaq is nearing its 21-day range for the first time in weeks, but is clearly lagging.
Even the Dow is still facing its December peak, with other indexes facing many challenges. The S&P 500 is above its 50-day line which is another big step.
It may indicate the beginning of a more meaningful association, even if it’s just a short, commercial campaign, but it’s still unclear.
The leading stock, which has often outperformed the S&P 500 in recent months, showed strong activity on Friday, with a number of breakouts and sell-off signals. But that’s after some disappointing changes earlier in the week, and more broadly in the past few months.
Watch to see if the marketing mix can generate momentum in big data and lead sales. On Thursday, the consumer price index is up.
Time the Market with IBD’s ETF Market Strategy
What To Do Now
The stock market is looking good, for now. Investors may want to add more exposure, either within individual stocks or through the broader ETF market. But don’t get too excited.
It could be a drastic change, or just another fake head.
The market can quickly turn down. Or, the S&P 500 could rise to a 200-day or December high — and fall back.
Taking small steps may be the best way to start. Allow the marketing mix to draw you in. Be prepared to cut losses quickly and always consider taking profits quickly.
But it’s definitely a time to build your watch lists. Make sure you have a separate menu. Although growth and technology are still in progress with a few exceptions such as KLAC stock, many stocks from different sectors are looking interesting.
