IBD says this “Volume in Boeing was more than eight times its average, and it single-handedly accounted for an increase in NYSE volume. Nasdaq volume fell. Advancing stocks led decliners by a 10-3 ratio on the Nasdaq and by nearly 4-to-1 on the NYSE.”
“The IBD 50 rose 2.2%, with several stocks rising from pullbacks to their 10-week moving averages.”
IBD continues, “On Monday, the Nasdaq composite rose 2% and the S&P 500 index advanced 1.5%, both reclaiming their 200-day moving averages. The Dow Jones rallied 0.7% even with Boeing (BA) falling 5%, though that was well off its 13.5% intraday loss.”
“Even better, growth stocks were big winners, with software stocks among the champions. Software is rated No. 1 out of 33 sectors tracked by IBD, rising 22.4% so far this year alone.
Over all it is good start for the week
