With interest rates rising / elevated, growth stocks are struggling. And in today’s market, growth stocks often are tech stocks.
Today’s chart looks at the performance ratio of the Nasdaq Composite to the S&P 500 Index (large caps).
As you can see, the tech/large cap ratio is down around 25% since the top last year. This clearly highlights the weakness in tech stocks.
That said, this important ratio remains above its 20-year rising price support. It is also trading at a key price support/resistance line that dates back to a counter-trend rally in late 2000. Can this dual support hold?
I find it crazy how the world has created this situation with a darn ratio… in my humble opinion, it would be rather concerning if this dual support fails to hold. Stay tuned!
