Russian crude oil embargo
President Biden has banned US imports of Russian oil, natural gas and coal, in the latest response to the Ukrainian invasion. US imports of Russian energy are relatively low. With gasoline prices already at record levels, Biden said they would continue to rise, blaming Russia.
The UK said it would ban Russian crude, but over a period of several months. The European Union, which uses a lot of Russian energy, is not declaring a ban, but said it aims to cut two-thirds of Russian gas imports by the end of the year. That may be ambitious, with many member states reluctant to take steps that would raise energy costs further.

Market Rise Analysis
An attempt to rally in the stock market came close to failure on Tuesday, then signaled that this might happen Follow-up day Moderately before closing.
The recovery came as major indexes, especially the Nasdaq, approached their February 24th lows. In many ways, Tuesday’s events seemed like another bottom day, like January 28 or February 24.
Major indices remain well below where they closed on February 24, and below the 10-day moving average. The highs recorded by the current rally on 3 March are even higher. Reaching this level could also mean retaking the 21-day moving average, which has served as resistance for the past several months. Beyond that there are several key levels.
On the downside, the major indexes don’t have to drop much before breaking below their February 24th lows. They each hit new multi-month lows on Tuesday.
The market is still largely news driven. Regardless of the technical picture of major indices and stocks, positive or negative headlines related to Ukraine’s invasion of Russia have the potential to cause immediate positive and negative repercussions. Biden’s ban on crude oil in Russia and Putin’s decision to ban exports are just two recent examples.
Major sectors, stocks
Energy stocks rose and fell while fertilizer and steel stocks fell. Rail operators sold, having seemed to promise to start the week. Health insurance companies are still reasonably resilient.

While holding better than all other EV Toys or ARK-type stocks, TSLA stock is still below the 21-day streak and well below its February highs in the short term.
Nvidia stock rose 0.8% to 215.14, but far from session highs and after hitting a five-month low on the day. Stocks are still well below the 200 day streak.
What are you doing now
Given the weak and volatile market movement in recent days and months, investors should be extremely wary of having anything more than modest exposure.
Limit your exposure to strong market segments. Even so, investors should pay attention to the large fluctuations in those sectors, and consider taking partial profits.
The next clear upside in the market could come tomorrow, next week, or months from now. But don’t expect, get ready. Keep working on those watchlists.
