"The trend is evident to a man who has an open mind and reasonably clear sight." -Edwin Lefevre, in Reminiscences of a Stock Operator
I have a series of ChartLists that I follow during the day as a way to get a sense of the overall market trend. One of the pages displays the four iShares MSCI factor ETFs, those that track Momentum (MTUM), Quality (QUAL), Size (SIZE), and Value (VLUE).
I’ve found this to be a great complement to other pages which track broad market indexes, market internals and sector and industry performance. By flipping through these pages, I can get a sense of what’s driving the market over time.
