Nvidia shares edged up 0.8% to 1,148.25, hitting a new all-time high and extending its post-earnings run by four sessions to 20.9%. NVDA stock now has a market cap of $2.871 trillion.

What to do now

The stock market rally is reaching all-time highs, at least for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq. Nvidia stands out for the most part. However, a large number of flagship stocks are still doing well. Investors with these names are in a good position.

But the low magnitude is worrying. A divided market recovery is more unstable, with the risk of sector rotation or simply leading groups joining the laggards.

Investors may want to be careful about adding exposure. Staying put is good, taking care to reduce assets that show weaknesses. If you choose to add exposure, be nimble, willing to exit positions that aren’t working.

The underlying market weakness could be short-lived, giving stocks the opportunity to create new entries or quickly develop relative strength. So keep working on your watchlists.
