We finally had a positive follow-through day and have now had one of the best two-day records since March of 2020. It’s easy to get overly excited, but we’re still in a bear market and have a long way to go before we say the market bottom is in. However, this looks like a nice start to a rally from deeply oversold conditions. Keep in mind that going up by over 1400+ points in two days could bring a profit-taking day soon.
Here’s a daily chart of the SPY with potential resistance coming in around $378, $384.50, and $391.
Will OPEC rain on the bull parade? Crude Oil has been on a three-month slide, so the alliance of oil-producing countries threatened to cut production by more than 1 million barrels a day to bolster global oil prices. Crude surged by more than 6% on the news. Of course, the timing of all this is suspect since we’re a month before the mid-terms.

Everyone’s favorite EV maker, Tesla (TSLA) broke production records in Q3. Sales prices keep increasing and profit margins are getting better. The stock lost 20% in the last few weeks, making this an interesting time to dip back into the automaker.

Here’s TSLA’s weekly chart.
Tesla can be a volatile stock – it’s true, but it does have a historical track record of doing well after Q3 earnings announcements, rising in seven of the last 11 years. With the stock at the bottom of a wedge formation, we could see the stock rip back up to $300.
Speaking of Elon Musk, he has once again proposed buying Twitter (TWTR) for his original offer price of $54.20/share, which was enough to cause the stock to be halted during the trading day yesterday, and it closed up after a 20%+ move. How many of you are in TWTR? Do you think the deal will go through or is this more of Musk wanting attention?
