What ETFs Are Up Intermediate-Term?

Stock-Markets / Exchange Traded Funds Apr 10, 2009 - 04:46 PM GMT

By: Richard_Shaw

Stock-Markets Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith all the concern about what's surging up and what's spiraling down in the short-term, what ETFs are showing strong intermediate-term trends (based on 200-day moving average)?

Scanning the larger ETFs (those in the upper quartile by assets), we find four that are priced at or above $5.00 with at least 100,000 shares traded on average each day for the past month, and that meet these moving average price criteria:

  • 200-day SMA of Close today > 200-day SMA 5 days ago
  • 200-day SMA of Close 5 days ago > 200-day SMA of Close 10 days ago
  • 200-day SMA of Close 10 days ago > 200-day SMA of Close 15 days ago
  • 50-day SMA of Close today > 200-day SMA of Close today
  • 20-day SMA of Close today > 50-day SMA of Close today
  • 5-day SMA of Close today > 20-day SMA of Close today

They are aggregate US Bonds (BND), agency backed mortgage securities (MBB), short-term municipal bonds (SHM) and short-term Treasuries (SHV).

Key data for each fund: (expense ratio in basis points / average duration in years / credit quality / 30-day SEC yield / distribution yield / sponsor)

  • BND: (11 / 4.1 / AA / 4.31% / not reported * / Vanguard)
  • MBB: (25 / 1.6 / AAA / 0.01% / 3.07% / iShares)
  • SHM: (20 / 1.5 / AA2 / 1.46% / 4.37% / iShares)
  • SHV: (15 / 0.4 / AAA / 0.27% / 0.56% / SPDRs)

[* Vanguard reports the distribution amounts]

Each price chart below shows the 20-day, 50-day and 200-day moving average of the price, as well as two panels below. One panel shows the ratio of the percentage price performance of the fund to the percentage price performance of the S&P 500 index.  The other shows the ratio of the percentage price performance of the fund to the percentage price performance of the Aggregate US Bond index.
