U.S. stock futures soared on Sunday night after selling technical stocks, leading to a decline in the first weekly months of the market.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average futures traded up 158 points, or 0.6%. The S&P 500 was up 0.6% and the Nasdaq 100 was up 0.8%.
The S&P 500 fell 2.5% last week. This is the worst weekly fall in the broader market index since June 26. The S&P 500 fell for two consecutive weeks for the first time since May.
Those losses were largely driven by the steep decline in technology, which is the best-performing market sector year to date. The S&P 500 technology sector has fallen more than 4% to its biggest weekly loss since March. Apple, the largest company in the United States by market cap, fell more than 7% last week.
“Much of the technical lungs have been destroyed since August, but in its wake, clear and threatening investments … have grown,” said Frank Cappellari, managing director of Instinit.
Of course, Jefferies’ Sean Darby thinks this decline in technology may be short-lived.
“There are no ambiguities about fundamentals or revenue expectations. And a reverse surprise will come from the weakness of the dollar, while the emergence of a vaccine and / or increase in long-term rates will restrict performance,” said Darby, a global stock strategist.
