Nvidia stock

Nvidia stock fell to a low of 830.22 on Wednesday, hitting its lowest levels since March 1. But the AI ​​chip leader found support around the 10-week line, paring losses to close 2% lower at 853.54. A strong move away from the 10-week line, the first such test since the breakout in early January, would provide a buying opportunity. NVDA stock is scheduled to have a fixed base at 974 buy points after this week.

Nvidia faces increasing competition in the field of artificial intelligence. Even if its chips stay a step ahead, competing products will dampen Nvidia's sales and prices at the margin. Customers will want to diversify their AI chip suppliers to avoid over-reliance on Nvidia.

Google-Arm AI processor, Intel chip

Google held a major cloud computing event on Tuesday. The highlight was the new AI processor that uses arm designs.

Additionally, Google stock rose 1.1% to 156.60, still within a 152.15 buy point range.

Meanwhile, Intel unveiled its Gaudi 3 AI chip to compete with Nvidia. Intel stock rose 0.9% after hitting 2024 lows during the day, continuing to trade below all of its major moving averages.

Tesla shares

Tesla stock rose 2.25% to 176.88 on Tuesday, after Monday's 4.9% jump. Stocks are rebounding from an 11-month low after Elon Musk promised to unveil a robotaxi on August 8. But it's unclear what that would entail, given that Tesla's full self-driving isn't ready for driverless work. TSLA stock is approaching the 10-week moving average, which has served as resistance in 2024.

Taiwan Semiconductor Co., Ltd

Taiwan Semiconductor Corp. will release March and first-quarter sales numbers early Wednesday. The foundry giant, which will report earnings next week, makes chips for Nvidia, apple (Camel), Broadcom (Afgo), Google and many more. It is also a major buyer of chip equipment. So the Taiwan Semi reports will have wide-ranging implications for the sector.

What are you doing now

Investors need to be patient in the sideways market, waiting to see the direction in which major indices and leading stocks will break decisively. On Tuesday, the sideways market provided a “greatest hits” session, with some leading stocks falling, some reversing lower, some finding support, and some even making upward moves.

Wednesday's CPI inflation report may provide some clear direction for the market to move higher, but it may not. Earnings season is looming, with big markets, sectors and stocks likely to move up or down, or perhaps both.

For now, investors should work on their watch lists. Leading stocks are testing key support levels and forming bases across a range of sectors.
