Dow futures fell overnight, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures, as Russian President Vladimir Putin announced military action in eastern Ukraine. The battered stock market tried to recover on Wednesday, but sold out hard, amid tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq all fell from their lowest levels on Jan. 24.
Putin announced early Thursday local time a “special military operation” that he said was “aimed at the disarmament and disarmament of Ukraine.” It appears that Russian forces will enter eastern Ukraine, although it is unclear whether they will cross the Line of Control between the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian separatists.
There were reports of explosions in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
Perhaps Putin is trying to induce Ukrainian forces to launch an offensive, providing a pretext for a further invasion of the country.
Earlier Wednesday, America warned that another invasion of Ukraine appeared imminent. “They are ready to go,” said a senior Defense Department official.
The United States has indicated that it is preparing to impose a ban on technology exports on Russia, among other sanctions, if there is another “invasion” of Ukraine.
Tesla (TSLA) was the worst performer for the S&P 500 on Wednesday, falling below its 2022 lows after failing to regain key support. New investors should already exit, but even long-term holders of TSLA shares should consider expanding.

The Relative force line As for Tesla stock, it fell to its lowest level since October. The RS line, the blue line in the provided charts, tracks the stock’s performance against the S&P 500 Index.
Tesla has delivered impressive Q4 numbers and should have a 2022 as production continues to increase even as chip problems continue to limit overall auto industry production. The lack of new Tesla models in 2022, after CEO Elon Musk promised a “product roadmap,” disappointed investors.
But the biggest problem is the weak market environment. This is especially true of growing stocks, with high-value names such as Tesla stocks taking a hit particularly hard.
Anyone who buys a Tesla gets out of the big market cup base, with a buy point of 900.50, it should have been sold long ago. If you buy in different buy points In the seventies, it was time to go out and take the remaining profits. Don’t let huge gains go back and forth and turn into a loss.
But what about investors who bought Tesla shares long ago and are sitting on huge gains? Your patience and conviction have paid off in the past two years. It’s definitely possible that TSLA’s stock will bounce back soon and pick up another foot.
But at some point, big winners like Tesla’s stock finish their run and get stuck. So investors need an exit strategy. Your exit points will vary based on your position size and winnings ratio, your general risk tolerance and your convictions in stocks.
TSLA stock is now 8% below its 200-day streak. The decisive break here will not leave any obvious support level until the 2021 lows of around 540-550. If stocks can’t rebound by the end of the week, long-term investors may want to consider reducing their holdings of TSLA shares. The risk only grows when the broader market begins to collapse to new lows.
The stock market attempted a recovery Wednesday morning, but that quickly faded as fears of a Russian invasion resurfaced. The Nasdaq Composite, which rose more than 1% shortly after the opening, quickly reversed, eventually dropping below its Jan. 24 low. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones also cut their lows on Jan. 24.
Since the S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed below their lowest level on January 31 Follow-up daysThe outlook for a market rally was bleak. Since then, the major indices have continued to gain more distribution days from sell-offs.
The S&P 500 is down more than 10% from its highs, which is a mean correction by conventional standards. The Nasdaq is on the cusp of a bear market, down 19.6% from its November 22 high.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see the market rebounding after so many pullback sessions. But even a few good days will not necessarily be a sign of a clear recovery. On the flip side, the major indicators may be on the cusp of another drop. Another Russian invasion of Ukraine, or just fears of war, may trigger a new wave of selling.
Few stocks are being created at the moment. This is especially true in growth.
The travel sector has faded, despite some positive tailwinds, over the past few sessions, including BKNG stock. Even the still resilient energy and commodity groups are volatile and do not stimulate new purchases.
What are you doing now
What more can be said? The stock market is looking bad, with major indexes breaching their lows in late January after several warning signs. Every day, the reasons for continuing to invest are dwindling. The only exceptions are pockets of market power or long-term winners. But even with long-term winners like Tesla shares, investors will have to expand or get out of the money at some point.
Don’t indulge in a morning bounce, like on a Wednesday, or even a couple of good days. Wait for convincing signals of market strength. This includes creating leading stocks and blinking buy signals.
For now, keep your exposure minimal or be monetized entirely. Stay engaged and prepared by watching market moves and reformulating your watchlists.
