On Tuesday, weekly EV registration data showed Tesla’s China sales continued to rise, likely helped by the updated Model 3.

What to do now

The stock market rally still looks healthy. Despite Tuesday, market breadth improved.

Some stocks are flashing buy signals, but investors may want to simply stand by while major indexes and some leading stocks consolidate. If they haven’t already, investors may want to take some profits in extended stocks after big November gains. But that depends on exposure and concentration levels and your personal investment style.

Keep working on watch lists. Be sure to screen well beyond growth stocks as many sectors have advanced.

Read the big picture every day to stay in tune with market direction and leading stocks and sectors.
