NEW! Correlation View for ChartLists!

Earlier this week, we rolled out a powerful new addition to our ChartList Views - Correlation View! The new Correlation View allows you to quickly see correlation values for all of the stocks or funds in any of your saved ChartLists, each calculated against a benchmark of your choosing and over the time period you select. As any experienced investor will tell you, considering correlation is an important aspect of constructing a properly diversified portfolio. With our new Correlation View, we've streamlined that task for you!

To try out the new Correlation View, head over to the Members Dashboard and scroll down to your ChartLists. In the "View As" dropdown menu for any of your saved lists, you'll notice a new option titled "Correlation". Select that and you'll be off to the races!

Also, for an expert's take on how you can use correlation to build a stronger portfolio, be sure to check out Gatis Roze's "Traders Journal" article at the bottom of this week's newsletter.

The NASDAQ 100 Hit a Record High This Week, But Still Lags The S&P 500

Article Image Chart 1 shows the Powershares QQQ ETF hitting a record high this week. It was the last of the major stock indexes to do so, and its breakout is a positive sign for the market. It also did slightly better than the rest of the market. The QQQ, however, has still been a relative laggard over the last month. That's shown by the falling QQQ/SPX ratio since the

A Pullback in the Energy SPDR? Here's What to Watch.

Article Image The Energy SPDR (XLE) is the top performing sector SPDR since mid August with a double digit advance over the last seven weeks. On the price chart, XLE broke out of the channel, exceeded its summer highs and pushed RSI above 70 for the first time this year. It was a remarkable move, but the ETF is short-term overbought and ripe for a corrective period, which could involve a pullback or a...

The $USD Hits Resistance

Article Image This week the US Dollar climbed to its highest level in two months. For those who have been following the Commodities Countdown articles, the reversal in the $USD was expected from the big downtrend. The three-year chart of the $USD shows the Euro turning higher at the start of 2017, the British Pound basing until March and then turning higher and the Canadian Dollar bottoming in May...

Article Image I've been following the stock market for a long time and I'm always searching for that perfect signal that never fails. I still haven't found it and there are never any guarantees in the stock market, BUT following the rotation of money to aggressive areas of the stock market can provide fairly reliable confirmation that a bull market rally is sustainable. The four relative ratios...

Get Ready - Earnings Season is About to Begin

Article Image They say how time flies; and it's true, especially from one earnings season to another, and starting this week we're going to start hearing from thousands of companies as they release their numbers. And boy, there's nothing traders and longer term investors care about more than earnings. This makes total sense. Think about it. Companies cannot control everything swirling around them. What they...

Weekly PMO BUY Signals Explode on DecisionPoint Scoreboards

Article Image Today all but the NDX garnered new PMO BUY signals in the intermediate term. The intermediate-term PMO signals are gathered from the weekly chart PMOs and their crossovers. I'll give you a peek at the NDX weekly chart too, but it is much further away from a new weekly BUY signal. In fact, the NDX weekly chart looks surprisingly bearish. The SPX is in a rising trend channel. Trend lines

Here's How You Build a Super Bowl Champion Portfolio (Hint: Pick Your Correlations Carefully)

Article Image Imagine a football coach who has the best eleven quarterbacks in the NFL altogether on the same team and puts them on field at the same time. This "dream team" would get clobbered. Without tight ends, tackles, guards, wide receivers and a center there to present a balanced attack, there would be no hope of victory. So why do so many investors build a team of assets that does precisely the...
