Long term investors keep looking for such intra-day opportunities in the market when stock prices correct big-time.
Buy the Dip, a common phrase among stock market investors, was at its full peak during the trading hours on Monday. The rebound in stock prices witnessed yesterday in the US stock market is being considered to be bigger than what was seen since the bottom hit in the pandemic bear market. Long-term investors keep looking for such intra-day opportunities in the market when stock prices correct big-time.
The tech-heavy index Nasdaq 100 was down by about 3 per cent intra-day but finished 0.14 per cent in the green. Some of the top performers were Moderna, Zscaler, Intel, Fortinet, Splunk, Atlassian, Tesla, Adobe, and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, amongst others. Nasdaq 100 is down by 4.09 per cent over the last 5 days and 1.89 per cent over the last 1 month.
