Final Week’s and eight Week Trailing Technical Rankings of Particular person ETFs

 The Excel spreadsheet under signifies the weekly change within the Technical Rating (“TR”) of every particular person ETF. The technical rating or scoring system is a completely quantitative method that makes use of a number of technical issues that embrace however will not be 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 “TR” of every particular person ETF ranges from 0 to 50. The first take away from this unfold sheet ought to be the development of the person “TRs” both the continued enchancment or deterioration, in addition to a change in path. Secondarily a really low rating can sign an oversold situation and conversely a continued very excessive quantity may be considered as an overbought situation however with due warning over offered circumstances can proceed at apace and overbought securities which have exhibited extraordinary momentum can simply turn out to be extra overbought. A sustained development change must unfold within the “TR” for it to be actionable.

As may be seen above, of the three Rising Market Nation areas we monitor, solely the 5 Latin America Nation ETFs have sported Technical Rankings (“TRs”) which have been above the “pink zone” (above 15) for the previous six weeks. The chart under is of the iShares Latin America 40 ETF (ILF) which broke out of a six-month downtrend in January clearly delineated by the pink dashed channel) in live performance with a flip in MACD which has been monitoring larger in optimistic territory.

The EEM with This Week’s Complete ETF Rating “TER” Overlayed

The Complete ETF Rating (“TER”) Indicator is a complete of all 22 ETF rankings and may be checked out as a affirmation/divergence indicator in addition to an overbought oversold indicator. As a affirmation/divergence device: If the broader market as measured by the iShares MSCI Rising Markets Index ETF (EEM) continues to rally with out a commensurate transfer or larger transfer within the “TER” the continued rally within the EEM Index turns into more and more in jeopardy. Conversely, if the EEM  continues to print decrease lows and there may be little change or a constructing enchancment within the “TER” a optimistic divergence is registered. That is, in a style, is sort of a conventional A/D Line. As an overbought/oversold indicator: The nearer the “TER” will get to the 1100 stage (all 22 ETFs having a “TR” of fifty) “issues can’t get significantly better technically” and a rising quantity particular person ETFs have turn out to be “stretched” the extra of an opportunity of a pullback within the EEM. On the flip aspect 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 transferring common in Crimson smooths the risky “TR” readings and analytically is a greater indicator of development.

The EEM Complete Technical Rating (“TER”) of the 22 Rising Market Nation ETFs rose to 680 from 607, leading to a +12.03% enhance week over week. Strikes of this caliber are extra the norm than they’re outliers. We remind readers that as a result of a  good quantity EM ETFs are thinly traded and are topic to huge swings which in flip creates risky particular person Technical Rating adjustments, that the calculation of the TER additionally fluctuates in an analogous manor. Analytically, specializing in the 13-week transferring common of the TER is a much better indicator. That transferring common has not made a brand new low, and as may be seen on the chart above, there was a collection of upper lows within the TER because the July of final 12 months (yellow dashed traces) because the EEM has continued to commerce decrease from the February 16, 2021, excessive. TER divergences take time to develop, and provided that we start to see worth get away of the down development or the TER decisively get away of the contracting triangle to larger highs would we be ready to recommend that the EEM could also be out of the woods.

Just like the “TER”, it’s a affirmation/divergence or overbought/oversold indicator.

The Common Technical Rating (“ATR”) of the 22 Rising Markets Nation ETFs rose barely final week however the development, as may be seen by the longer-term transferring common (blue line) stays flat in a sideways churn though the shorter-term transferring common (pink line) is starting to trace at a flip. The EEM has been in a grinding downtrend since February of final 12 months and broke Cloud assist in December and has remained trapped underneath it and the Kijun plot (inexperienced line) since then. That mentioned the “ATR” has prevented printing a decrease low as costs seem like stabilizing. It could be technically untimely to recommend {that a} flip in development has begun to unfold however it’s at all times prudent to concentrate to potential technical “whispers”.
