New 52-Week Lows Still Mostly In Energy Sector

Another useful tool for analyzing an index which only includes your kind of equities is a comparison between the number of issues establishing new 52-week high ground and the number sinking to new 52-week lows. The longer the numbers are overwhelmingly positive, the more likely it is that a correction is approaching.

Superficial analysis is very straight forward --- there should be more new highs in an upward trending market and more new lows during a correction. Typically, New Highs vs. New Lows is the last market statistic to weaken...

  • Over the past 70 months (Since April '09), months with more new highs (66) have exceeded months with more new lows (4) by a huge margin (see chart) --- including the past forty in a row; 51 of the past 53. 
  • How many of you think this is going to last forever... please, I want to hear from you.

The New High and New Low issue stats also identify weaker and/or stronger sectors within the Investment Grade Value Stock selection universe --- very important in helping investors determine where the bargains are and where the profit taking opportunities should be.

Remember to be quick on your profit-taking feet, using the two 7's beats one 10 "Brainwashing Book" strategy.  The correction you've anticipated may have arrived --- there has never, not ever, been a permanent upward only stock (or bond) market.
