Market timing signals updated weekly (Saturdays).

Signals provided for entertainment only. Do not make investment decisions based on these signals. 

Ratio Trend Strength Indicators

Using a proprietary formula, we calculate the trend strength of each of the four major indices weekly and list them above.

Positive numbers signal uptrends, the higher the number, the stronger the uptrend. Same thing in reverse for negative numbers. However, they are offered for your entertainment only. The predictive value of our indicators, if any, remains to be seen.

 

About Market Timing

Market timing is one of the more controversial aspects of investing. Market timers only invest long (buy) when they think the market, or a particular segment of the market, is in an uptrend. Market timing signals based on market indices can be used to trade index options, funds or other products designed to emulate particular indices, or to time the purchase and sale of individual stock appropriate to a particular index.

Our timing signals are designed to catch major moves. However, in a non-trending market, they are likely to generate unprofitable repetitive buy and sell signals (whipsaws).

Further, our signals depend solely on information contained within the charts. They do not take into account general economic conditions, interest rates, etc. They will not predict market turns caused by unexpected world events such as terrorist attacks, government upheavals
