Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) top stocks have broken out into buy zones
Dow Jones futures were little changed Sunday night, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures. The current stock market rally recently ended a short pause, with the Dow Jones, S&P 500 index and Nasdaq composite rallying to their best levels since early December. A growing number of top stocks have broken out into buy zones, including Boeing (BA), Salesforce.com(CRM), Mastercard (MA), Xilinx (XLNX) and Workday (WDAY). Note the absence of Apple stock and FANG stocks.
The major indexes are far from highs, but the current stock market rally has shifted into a new phase: a tradable rally for top stocks.
