The Market’s Compass US Index and Sector ETF Examine

That is the third publication of the Market’s Compass US Index and Sector ETF Examine that’s being launched on my Substack Weblog. That is the final US Index and Sector ETF Examine that shall be accessible to free subscribers. This week’s weblog highlights the technical modifications of the 30 US ETFs that we observe on a weekly foundation. There are three ETF Research that embrace the Market’s Compass US Index and Sector ETF Examine, the Developed Markets Nation (DMC) ETF Examine and the Rising Markets Nation (EMC) ETF Examine. The three Research will individually be revealed each three weeks. The DMC ETF Examine shall be revealed subsequent week.

This Week’s and eight Week Trailing Technical Rankings of the 30 Particular person ETFs

The Excel spreadsheet beneath signifies the weekly change within the Technical Rating (“TR”) of every particular person ETF. The technical rating or scoring system is a completely quantitative method that makes use of a number of technical issues that embrace however will not be restricted to development, momentum, measurements of accumulation/distribution and relative power. If a person ETFs technical situation improves the Technical Rating (“TR”) rises and conversely if the technical situation continues to deteriorate the “TR” falls. The “TR” of every particular person ETF ranges from 0 to 50. The first take away from this unfold sheet needs to be the development of the person “TRs” both the continued enchancment or deterioration, in addition to a change in path. Secondarily a really low rating can sign an oversold situation and conversely a continued very excessive quantity could be seen as an overbought situation however with due warning over offered circumstances can proceed at apace and overbought securities which have exhibited extraordinary momentum can simply change into extra overbought. A sustained development change must unfold within the “TR” for it to be actionable.

Three weeks in the past, we introduced consideration to the poor technical situation of the SPDR S&P Biotech ETF (XBI). This week the XBI was the one ETF that garnered a sub-fifteen studying including to the twelve-week run of sub-fifteen readings (Excel Spreadsheet above). This was regardless of final week’s +2.63% worth rally within the ETF. On the threat of repetition, we’re presenting an up to date chart beneath. Notice that relative to the SPX (backside panel) there was nary a touch of enchancment relative to the massive cap index. Following the worth chart are the highest 15 holdings within the ETF.  

The Technical Situation Elements

There are eight Technical Situation Elements (“TCFs”) that decide particular person TR scores (0-50). Every of those 8 TCFs ask goal technical questions (see the spreadsheet posted beneath). If a technical query is constructive an extra level is added to the person TR. Conversely if the technical query is adverse, it receives a “0”. A number of TCFs carry extra weight than the others such because the Weekly Pattern Issue and the Weekly Momentum Consider compiling every particular person TR of every of the 30 ETFs. Due to that, the excel sheet beneath calculates every issue weekly studying as a p.c of the attainable complete. For instance, there are 7 issues (or questions) within the Day by day Momentum Situation (“DMC”) of the 30 ETFs (or 7 X 30) for a attainable vary of 0-210 if all 30 ETFs had fulfilled the DMC standards the studying can be 210 or 100% . This previous week a 79.05% studying of the DMC was registered, or 166 of a attainable complete of 210 constructive factors. One technical take away can be if the DMC rises to an excessive between 85% and 100% it could counsel a brief time period over purchased situation was creating. Conversely a studying within the vary of 0% to fifteen% would counsel an oversold situation was creating. As a affirmation device, if all eight TCFs enhance on per week over week foundation, extra of the 30 ETF TCFs are enhancing confirming a broader market transfer larger (consider an advance/decline calculation).

The SPX Index with This Week’s Complete ETF Rating “TER” Overlayed

The “TER” Indicator is a complete of all 30 ETF rankings and could be checked out as a affirmation/divergence indicator in addition to an overbought oversold indicator. As a affirmation/divergence device: If the broader market as measured by the SPX Index (SP) continues to rally with out a commensurate transfer or larger transfer within the “TER” the continued rally within the SPX Index turns into more and more in jeopardy. Conversely, if the SPX Index continues to print decrease lows and there’s little change or a constructing enchancment within the “TER” a constructive divergence is registered. That is, in a style, is sort of a conventional A/D Line. As an overbought/oversold indicator: The nearer the “TER” will get to the 1500 stage (all 30 ETFs having a “TR” of fifty) “issues can’t get a lot better technically” and a rising quantity particular person ETFs have change into “stretched” the extra of an opportunity of a pullback within the SPX Index, On the flip aspect the nearer to an excessive low “issues can’t get a lot worse technically” and a rising variety of ETFs are “washed out technically” an oversold rally or measurable low is near be in place. The 13-week exponential transferring common in Crimson smooths the risky “TR” readings and analytically is a greater indicator of development. 

As could be seen above, the Complete Technical Rating (“TER”) rose to 834.5 from 604.5. The +38.05% acquire within the TER was one of the best WoW change within the TER because the +55.36% WoW acquire within the week ending 11/6/20 that marked the tip of a sideways 3-month correction within the massive cap index. As we’ve got stated earlier than, the easiest way to analytically view the longer development is to give attention to the 13-week Exponential transferring common (pink line) which continues to trace decrease regardless of the latest minor hook larger and it needs to be famous that the TER has risen again above the transferring common.

Brief time period ideas on the technical situation of the SPX Index.

In a twitter submit final Thursday we introduced consideration to the three white troopers (chart above) and though they aren’t tall in stature or excellent, nor are their heads and bottoms “shaven”, the three day candle sample was about to mount an assault on the Higher Parallel of the Schiff Modified Pitchfork. With Friday’s observe via rally the SPX overtook the Higher Parallel. The massive cap index nonetheless has hurdles forward within the type of TDST resistance and the Cloud (confluence of resistance could be formidable) however it seems from a look on the momentum oscillators that the SPX has the wind at it again growing the percentages that it will likely be profitable in overtaking each.

The Common Technical Rating of the 30 US Index and Sector ETFs

The weekly Common Technical Rating (“ATR”) is the typical Technical Rating (“TR”) of the 30 US Index and Sector ETFs we observe. Just like the “TER”, it’s a affirmation/divergence or overbought/oversold indicator.

The SPX Index rallied +6.16% final week discovering it’s approach again above the Weekly Cloud closing simply off the highs of the week though the advance has so far been capped by the Kijun Plot (inexperienced line). That marked one of the best weekly acquire because the November 6, 2000 weekly acquire of 239.48 factors or +7.32% that marked the tip of a nine-week sideways worth correction. The Common Technical Rating (“ATR”) rose to 27.82 which marks one of the best stage because the flip of the yr. Though the ATR didn’t print a better excessive it did breakout of the 5 month down development (inexperienced dashed line) and it nudged its approach simply above the longer-term  Exponential transferring common (blue line).

The Week Over Week Change in Technical Rankings

The most important beneficial properties in Technical Rating (“TR”) modifications week over week had been in ETFs that had lagged the broader market as of late. The common TR change of +7.67 was the most important common acquire in latest reminiscence. Twenty-four ETFs noticed beneficial properties of their TRs and 6 moved decrease versus the earlier week when 7 noticed improved TRs, 3 had been unchanged and 20 TRs moved low for a mean TR change of -3.07%.
