Dow Jones Today: Oil Prices, Treasury Yields

Ahead of Tuesday’s opening bell, Dow Jones futures, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures, were little changed vs. fair value. Remember that overnight action in Dow Jones futures and elsewhere doesn’t necessarily translate into actual trading in the next regular stock market session.

On Monday, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield rebounded from last week’s heavy losses, settling at 4.66%. Meanwhile, oil prices bounced modestly, as West Texas Intermediate futures closed below $81 a barrel.

Stock Market Rally: What To Do Now

Now is an important time to read IBD’s The Big Picture column, with the stock market outlook back in a confirmed uptrend.

Following Wednesday’s bullish follow-through day, investors should be raising their market exposure. IBD recommends a level of 20% to 40% until the trend strengthens further. One factor in that decision is how the market reacts to Apple’s earnings and the jobs report.

Don’t just plunge into the market. While no market uptrend has ever begun without one, not every follow-through succeeds. So raise your exposure gradually as more and more breakouts emerge.

A great resource for daily breakouts is IBD MarketSmith’s “Breaking Out Today” list. It shows MarketSmith Growth 250 stocks that are breaking out past new buy points. Meanwhile, the MarketSmith “Near Pivot” list shows stocks nearing buy points in bases.

Dow Jones Stocks: Intel, Walmart, UnitedHealth

Chip giant Intel is in buy range past a 37.22 buy point in a double-bottom base, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. Intel stock dipped 0.5% Monday, still above the latest entry.

Dow Jones retail titan Walmart is in buy range past a 165.85 buy point, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. Shares inched higher Monday, just above the entry.
