Dawson says stocks need to hold this key level to potentially be considered a rally

According to NewEdge Wealth’s Cameron Dawson, stocks rose on Monday, but not high enough to be considered a true market rally.

“We have to break the most critical level of 4,100,” Dawson said on CNBC.Closing call: Overtime” Monday. Because 4,100 is the S&P 500’s 65-day high.

Dawson said the S&P 500 is in a downtrend and never reaches a major action level in 2022. If the stock breaks this level, it could indicate that the rally has the potential to lead to a new bull market cycle.

Technicals and positioning can only get stocks so far, he added, before a fundamental shift is required to really give stocks forward momentum.

“We need to see a change in fundamentals to think this rally will continue,” he said.

He warned that upside stocks will likely remain limited until the Federal Reserve fully turns around and re-stimulates the U.S. economy.

“It’s unlikely we could go back to pre-pandemic times without the Fed’s help,” he said.

Dawson said if stocks can rally and break the 65-day high, that would make the S&P 500 also less likely to retest the October lows.
