Market has a rebound rally

Dow +586.89 at 33876.97, Nasdaq +111.10 at 14141.48, S&P +58.34 at 4224.79

[BRIEFING.COM] The S&P 500 rose 1.4% on Monday in a rebound rally led by the value/cyclical stocks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (+1.8%) and Russell 2000 (+2.2%) outpaced the benchmark index following poor performances last week, while the Nasdaq Composite (+0.8%) gained 0.8%.

The market really gained traction early in the session after the S&P 500 reclaimed its 50-day moving average (4184), which has acted as a strong measure of support over the past 14 months. Given this observation, and the lack of market-moving news, the bullish price action likely fed onto itself and stirred a fear of missing out on a technically-driven rally.

All 11 S&P 500 sectors and all 30 Dow components finished in positive territory, with the biggest gains scored in the cyclical sectors that sold off last week -- energy (+4.3%), financials (+2.4%), industrials (+2.2%), and materials (+2.1%). The consumer discretionary sector (+0.5%) increased the least with a modest gain.

Bank stocks showed notable strength, as the Treasury yield curve unwound some of last Friday's flattening activity. The SPDR S&P Bank ETF ($KBE 51.42, +1.73, +3.5%) gained 3.5% after declining 7.6% in the prior two sessions.

The 10-yr yield increased three basis points to 1.48%, while the 2-yr yield decreased one basis point to 0.25%. The U.S. Dollar Index declined 0.4% to 91.86, providing some relief for commodities like WTI crude ($73.64/BBL, +1.97, +2.8%) and copper ($4.184/LB, +0.03, +0.6%).

Apple ($AAPL 132.30, +1.84, +1.4%) and Microsoft ($MSFT 262.63, +3.20, +1.2%) stealthily advanced more 1.0%, with MSFT setting a record high in the process. Semiconductor companies NVIDIA ($NVDA 737.09, -8.46, -1.1%) and Advanced Micro Devices ($AMD 82.59, -2.06, -2.4%) struggled on reports that retail prices have declined sharply in Europe.

Mid-cap companies FIGS ($FIGS 42.61, +6.21, +17.1%) and ZipRecruiter ($ZIP 23.51, +2.25, +10.6%) rallied on positive-minded analyst recommendations.

Investors did not receive any economic data on Monday. Looking ahead, investors will receive Existing Home Sales for May on Tuesday.
