On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020. Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index. But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close.
This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over. With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a strong bounce back recovering half or more of its losses in just a few weeks.
Traders should line up their future positions now if they haven’t yet, and select prices at which to start buying even while it looks like carnage out there now.

A year ago, shares of Gamestop (GME) could be bought for under $5. The retail operation was seen as on its last legs. But then Michael Burry, of The Big Short fame became a fan. So too, did the posters of Wall Street Bets, a subreddit of traders looking for their next play. They were fans in regards to a short-squeeze thesis, given how many shares were already being held short. That played out spectacularly on Friday.
Shares, which were as low as $12 just a month ago, closed on Thursday at $43 and surged nearly 70 percent intraday to a high of $76, before being halted. The exchange halt caused shares to stop heading higher, and may mark an end of the rally — or not. Traders looking for their next big win might be wise to take a look at other heavily-shorted stocks for a similar explosive rally. They may also want to look out below when the buying frenzy stops.
