Monday’s sell-off was spurred by fears over property developer China Evergrande Group. Investors increasingly believe that Beijing will let Evergrande fail and inflict losses on its shareholders and bondholders, according to the Wall Street Journal The company’s debt burden is the biggest for any publicly traded real estate management or development company in the world.
Among exchange traded funds, Innovator IBD 50 (FFTY) was not yet trading in the premarket Tuesday. Nasdaq 100 tracker Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) rallied 0.6%. And the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) moved up 0.6%.
Stock Market Breaks Key Support
The Nasdaq broke down sharply below its 50-day line Monday, adding more selling pressure to the major stock indexes. The S&P 500 broke support at that level Friday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit its lowest level since June 21.
Monday’s The Big Picture commented, “Spurred by a 3% thrashing of stocks in the Hang Seng benchmark in Hong Kong, U.S. stocks took the cue that the potential collapse of China’s real estate giant Evergrande served as a reason to take profits. The S&P 500 gapped lower at the open. After a brief spell of buying, the index resumed its sell-off. It sank as much as 2.9%. Yet the late-hour drive of buyers cut the day’s loss to 1.7%.”
Dow Jones Stocks To Buy And Watch: Nike
Dow Jones leader Nike is tracing a flat base with a 174.48 buy point, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. But shares are below their key 50-day moving average line and on a six-day losing streak following Monday’s 1.4% loss. Shares were up 0.7% premarket Tuesday.
Nike earnings are due Thursday.
Through Sept. 10, Nike was the No. 8 performer on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, advancing more than 15%. Goldman Sachs (GS) was the top Dow Jones stock, with a year-to-date gain of 52% through Sept. 15.

Nvidia rallied about 1% premarket Tuesday. The stock triggered the round-trip sell signal from a 207.43 buy point in a cup with handle. Investors should sell when a stock gives up the entirety of a double-digit gain to avoid taking a loss.
