cyber security inventory
While technology and growth names in general rebounded on Thursday, with programs among the leaders, the cybersecurity plays were particularly hot. Russia has used massive cybersecurity attacks against Ukraine on its way to a physical invasion. Investors are betting that cybersecurity will be at the forefront of governments and companies.

The stock market had a fiery session on Thursday. A gap in the key indicators appeared with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine with overwhelming force. But they bounced back in force when the West responded with harsher sanctions, but not so far that they are expected to have a devastating effect on the global economy.
Arguably the stock market was set to rebound after several days of selling. Major indexes broke below their Jan. 24 lows on Wednesday, with the Nasdaq briefly entering a bear market on Thursday. So this bounce may wear off quickly.
However, it was an encouraging session of high volume after a series of days of distribution and desperation.
Currently, Thursday marks the first day of the stock market’s attempt to bullish the major indices. Starting late next week, investors can look for a Follow-up day To confirm the new market rise.
Even if the market attempt continues and starts a follow-up day, not all confirmed uptrends will work. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq held the FTD on January 31, but the upside quickly got into trouble, and finally failed definitively on Wednesday. In late 2018, the market had two failed FTDs before finally hitting lows on Christmas Eve that year.
In the current environment, where headlines can send the market in radically different directions, it would be hard to trust any market recovery, even a certain rally.
What are you doing now
Watching stocks and major indices rebound from steep intraday losses, it can be tempting to try to jump near the bottom. But there is a big risk that the market will roll quickly and fall to new lows. Even the upside may be limited if the market advances for a few days and then stops.
The past few months have shown the danger of becoming too aggressive and not expanding. What investors need now is patience. Wait a day for the follow-up to take the necessary action. Even then, you’ll want to add an offer slowly, especially if your buying opportunities are limited.
For now, keep working on your watchlists. The volatile market correction is once again moving potential leaders. Cybersecurity names are rising again, while banks are standing back. So put PANW stock on your watch list, along with the names of other security software – although it probably isn’t Zscaler. But who knows what combinations and stocks will remain strong when a new bullish trend finally takes hold in the market?
So throw in a wide net and an open mind. Focus on stocks with strong RSI lines. Stay connected. When the market shows sustained strength, you want to be prepared.
