Dow Jones Futures: AI Stocks Arm, Broadcom, Nvidia Eye Buy Points, While Tesla Surges

Dow Jones futures, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures, were little changed ahead of Tuesday's stock market open. Artificial intelligence stocks Arm, Broadcom and Nvidia are close to buy points Monday, while Tesla surged higher.

This week, Wall Street will turn its attention to Wednesday's consumer price index for March. Further, minutes from the Federal Reserve's March policy meeting are due out Wednesday.

Meanwhile, first-quarter earnings season kicks off this week with reports from big banks JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Citigroup, along with Delta Air Lines.

AI Stocks Near Buy Points

AI chip stock Arm is building a consolidation that has an official buy point of 164. But investors could use a decisive rebound from the 50-day line as a new buy area. Today's price action was strong, but the move occurred on low volume, removing some of the session's bullishness. Keep an eye out for a big rise in strong volume to indicate institutional support at a key level.

Further, more aggressive investors could also use a move above the 145 price level, the stock's high price in late March, as an early buy trigger.

AI stock Broadcom is building a short consolidation with a 1,438.17 buy point. The price action looks like a flat base, but it's slightly too deep, with a depth of just over 16%. The maximum depth of a flat base is 15%. Shares slipped 0.3% Monday, about 8% away from the entry.

And Magnificent Seven stock Nvidia is close to finishing a flat base that would create a buying opportunity at 974. Nvidia stock is in week five of a flat base, which means the entry would be valid after this week. Shares dropped 1% Monday. The AI giant is an IBD Leaderboard stock.
