Here's a Materials Stock With Potential



With the Materials sector (XLB) moving into the leading quadrant on the weekly RRG, it makes sense to look for some individual stocks that may offer upside potential. Using Relative Rotation Graphs, we can do just that by loading all members of the Materials sector and using XLB as the benchmark from the dropdown box.

XLB Picking Up More Strength as Sector Rotates Further into Leading; XLK Loses Relative Momentum inside Weakening





On the weekly Relative Rotation Graph for US sectors, there are five sectors rotating at the right hand side of the graph, either inside the leading quadrant (XLB,XLC,XLK,XLY) or inside the weakening quadrant (XLV). On the daily RRG, it's also only these sectors at the right hand side of the plot, just in a slightly different order. On this time frame, XLK is inside weakening and XLV is inside leading.

Sector Spotlight: Charting Mid-Year Sector Rotation


On this episode of Sector Spotlight, I spends the full show in line with StockCharts TV's theme of the week "Charting the Second Half," examining what may be in store for the markets in the next part of 2020. I look at the rotation on the Relative Rotation Graph for each sector in the first half of the year. Then, in combination with the price- and relative charts, I try to come to an "educated assumption/idea" on what might lie ahead of us in coming weeks/months.

XLY Simultaneously Breaking to New Highs in Price and Relative Strength






On the daily Relative Rotation Graph for US sectors, the Consumer Discretionary sector rotated back into the leading quadrant last week, coming up from weakening. Generally, this is a positive/strong rotation as it reflects the second (or third, etc.) leg within a relative uptrend that is already underway.

This BIG (BLUE) Tech Stock Is On The Verge Of Breaking Lower


There is no doubt that the technology sector is still the strongest segment in the US stock market, but, in the near term, it is losing some of its relative momentum, as you can see on the daily Relative Rotation Graph for US sectors. One of the stocks in that sector with a really weak chart is IBM.

On the weekly chart of Twitter (TWTR), a clear downward trend is visible. The last three peaks are lining up nicely and connecting a downward-sloping resistance line. Parallel to that downward sloping resistance line, there is an also downward-sloping support line that connects the last three lower lows.

Sector Spotlight: S&P Losing Momentum


On this episode of Sector Spotlight, I check the seasonality for the month of July, but no clear over- or underperforming sectors are visible. The rotation of international stock markets is sending a clearer message; the US is losing momentum vs the rest of the world, especially Japan. Following some viewers' comments and remarks, I also come back to the discussion on applying technical analysis to non-tradeable symbols.

Turtle Soup Scan Triggers 29 Alerts, VRSN Ticks All The Boxes!





One of the scans that I run on a daily basis is my scan for "Turtle Soup" Buy signals. Actually, I have two versions of that scan - one that runs at last day's close and one that runs on last intraday update.

For the scan based on yesterday's close, I have set the alert to an email. So, every day after the close, I get an email with the ticker symbols that were triggered based on that scan. That is, if there were any symbols fulfilling all the criteria, of course.

XLE is Down 9%, But Still Moving Up Into the Leading Quadrant.... Why?







This question was forwarded to me by Dave Keller after he received it in the mailbag for his show The Final Bar.

"The RRGs attached all make sense except for XLE. It was down nearly 9% the last two days, but the RRG has it moving up from weakening. What am I missing? XLI, XLF sloping down towards weakening makes sense."

(Sector) Breadth Confirms Weak Rotation for Utilities




Relative Rotation Graphs are not just good for showing you the relative rotation based on price, but can also help you to see the relative development (rotation) of breadth on a sector level. There are many measures for breadth available in the StockCharts.com database, including several breadth indexes that are calculated at sector level.

Breadth, in general, is used to gauge the level of participation of individual stocks during an advance or decline in the markets. One example is the number/percentage of stocks trading above their n-day moving average. For the S&P 500, the ticker symbol that measures the percentage of stocks that are trading above their 200-day moving average is !GT200SPX.
