DISH is a New Short in the RRG L/S Basket














From time to time, I present Long/Short or Pair Trading ideas in my weekly Sector Spotlight show on StockCharts TV. During the past few months, I have started to track these ideas as a portfolio. This is by no means an advisory service or a model portfolio of any kind, but more an example of the practical implementations of ideas generated from Relative Rotation Graphs. This is particularly because I sometimes do not spend enough attention to these positions and only look at them from time to time, which causes me to be (too) late to exit positions that start to impact the portfolio negatively.

Having said that, nevertheless, it remains an interesting exercise to keep up with.

Sector Spotlight: Tech & Comm Rally Into October


In this edition of Sector Spotlight, with September drawing to an end, I dive into the monthly seasonality, finding some very interesting seasonal patterns for Technology and Communication Services on the one hand and Energy and Health Care on the other. History suggests a 2% out-performance for Technology in October, while the S&P closed higher almost 70% of the time with an average return of 1.6%. Combine that with a strong rotation on the RRG and we're looking at another stellar month coming up for Technology.

Breaking Down the Dow Jones Composite Index




The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100 are probably the most discussed charts/indexes. The Dow Jones Industrials is probably the most well known index. From an RRG point of view, the breakdown of the S&P 500 into its sectors is probably the most-watched RRG.

Sector Spotlight: Erratic Rotation Signals Uncertainty


In this edition of Sector Spotlight, I spend the show talking about current market rotations.

XLC and XLK Continue to Lose Relative Strength, Which is Picked Up by the Rest of the Market











Last week, the rotations for the Communication Services and Technology sectors continued on their trajectory deeper into the weakening quadrant, heading towards lagging. As always with relative strength, one sector's loss is another sector's gain - or, in this case three sectors' losses are the remaining sectors' gains.

Where Is All That Money Going To?


Last week's selloff primarily hit some mega-cap names in Technology, Communication Services and Discretionary stocks. For sure, it shook up markets pretty well and, as usual, the selling of risk assets led to an inflow into risk-off assets like bonds and more defensive sectors.

Sector Spotlight: Long/Short Basket Up 8%

Julius also dives into the Long/Short baskets, first looking at the existing positions and the performance so far and then making some amendments to the portfolio, trying to pick up some new emerging rotations.

Seasonality Expects a Decline For SPY in September and an Underperformance for Technology




Last Tuesday in Sector Spotlight, as well as in my last article of the RRG blog, I discussed seasonality for US sectors. While going over the table showing the average returns per sector per month, my eye fell on another number... the minus-one percent (-1%) for the Technology sector. This is interesting as the seasonal over-/under-performance shows 45%, which means that technology has outperformed SPY only 45% of the time in the past.

Usually, I do not pay too much attention to seasonality figures between 40-60 as they are too much of a coin toss. But the combination of 45% outperformance and a minus 1% historical underperformance for the month is noteworthy.

Sector Spotlight: Avoid Materials in September


In this edition of Sector Spotlight, I look at last week's rotations using daily Relative Rotation Graphs and go over the completed monthly charts for August to catch up on the long-term trends. After the break, I analyze the seasonality for US sectors and look for alignment of expected over-/underperformance with the tails on RRG. Materials (XLB) is lining up for a weak month, while Communication Services (XLC) has a more promising rotation ahead.

September Seasonality Points to Sector Rotation from Materials into Communication Services








The graph above shows the percentage of months in which sectors have outperformed the S&P 500 in the past. For most sectors, the data go back 20 years, with the exceptions of XLC and XLRE, as these sectors were only introduced more recently and the historical data does not go back that far (back-filled).

Seasonal Over- / Under-Performance

This is a chart that I show at the start of or shortly before a new month begins in my weekly show Sector Spotlight. For the coming month of September, there are a few interesting observations to make.
