  • What goes up, eventually goes down
  • Times “change”, but human behavior doesn’t

It has been a euphoric year for major US indices, which remained in positive territory despite the increasingly challenging macro environment this year.

However, most gains were driven by investor hype surrounding AI and came from a narrow selection of stocks labelled by the media as the “Magnificent 7”: Apple, Microsoft, Meta, Amazon, Alphabet, Nvidia, and Tesla,

These leading tech companies have been critical in lifting the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 index into double-digit returns. Excluding their contribution, both indices would have reverted to a negative year-to-date performance.

In their recent earnings release, they all posted robust numbers, beating expectations, except for Tesla. It missed estimates across the board as Elon Musk cited high-interest rates as a major reason for the abysmal Q3 results. This setback has seen Tesla’s stock plummet approximately 33% from its 52-week highs.

Nvidia is also up for a major correction. The leading chipmaker is facing a potential cancellation of a $5 billion China order due to US curbs. This could be the potential catalyst that causes Nvidia to break a critical $395 support level and fall all the way to $375, as it is facing a declining head and shoulders pattern. If it fails to hold the $375 level, this could spell disaster and a potential nosedive to $325.

The AI mania bubble burst is another major reason as to when these seven heavy hitters are due for or are in the middle of a correction.

Times change, but human behavior does not. Interest from Google trends in key phrases such as “Artificial intelligence” and “AI stocks” had declined substantially since they peaked in June, as visible by a downward pointing red arrow.

If we illustrate those seven tech giants as one, it would be the “Magnificent 7 ETF”. It has formed a triple top that has failed to break the resistance level three consecutive times, over the past few months, and now the rally is deflating, as triple tops usually do not work in favour of the bulls.

So far, Nvidia and Tesla are leading the downward trend, but others might follow soon.

Traders are facing a dangerous cocktail of high-interest rates, escalating geopolitical conflicts, oil prices spiking, and inflation creeping up again, causing panic among market participants. “Big 7” collectively lost nearly $2 trillion of their market capitalization from their 52-week highs, as this trade is reversing.

As the tech titans tumble, so will the mighty S&P 500, as the group collectively accounts for around 30% of the SPX’s total market capitalization.
