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 wholly quantitative method that makes use of a number of technical concerns that embody however aren’t restricted to development, momentum, measurements of accumulation/distribution and relative energy. 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 Whole ETF Rating (“TER”) Indicator is a complete of all 22 ETF rankings and might be checked out as a affirmation/divergence indicator in addition to an overbought oversold indicator. As a affirmation/divergence software: If the broader market as measured by the iShares MSCI World ETF (URTH) continues to rally with no commensurate transfer or greater transfer within the TER the continued rally within the URTH Index turns into more and more in jeopardy. Conversely, if the URTH 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 trend, is sort of a conventional A/D Line. As an overbought/oversold indicator: The nearer the TER will get to the 1100 degree (all 22 ETFs having a person Technical Rating “TR” of fifty) “issues can’t get significantly better technically” and a rising quantity particular person ETFs have turn into “stretched” the extra of an opportunity of a pullback within the URTH. On the flip facet 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 shifting common in pink, smooths the unstable TER readings and analytically is a greater indicator of development.
