The Stock Market Leadership Ratio Chart, Part1

Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading Aug 18, 2009 - 02:59 AM GMT

By: Marty_Chenard

Stock-Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn our daily Leadership Ratio chart, we measure the strength of the Leadership stocks and compare them to the strength of the Broad Market stocks. We then divide the two numbers and create a Ratio that shows if the Leaders are moving forward or retreating relative to the Broad Market stocks.


So what is the Leadership Ratio saying?

1. That the Leaders are still charging forward as a group. 2. However, a some of the Leaders are retreating.

What does that mean?

It means that the majority of the Leaders are still moving forward. The minority pulling back are inducing a weakness in the overall effort ... so that shows up as market weakness/softness.

Currently, this is a short term problem that will give the market higher than normal intra-day volatility.

Is there anything worth noting about the current pattern of the Leadership stocks?

Yes ... and you can see the pattern when you look at our labels numbered from 1 to 3.

Each number label shows that a Leadership Ratio up trend was broken to the downside (while still in positive territory).

- After the support was broken at label 1, the NYA Index dropped for 3 days.

- The second time it happened (label 2), the NYA Index dropped for 15 days. Note that the Leadership Stock Ratio went all the way down to zero (Neutral) and held that level ... after which it rallied up again.

- So, now we are at label 3 where the support was broken to the downside again. We can say that we have had "market softness" since August 6th. when the support was broken, because the market has not made any upside progress at all.

What will it do this time? Will we retreat further, hold better than before, or move up higher this time?

Is there another market factor that determines what happens to the Leadership Ratio?

There is, and we will show you that piece of the equation in Part II of this discussion tomorrow.
