    The chart below measures the percentage of high relative strength stocks that are trading above their 50-day moving average (universe of mid and large cap stocks.)  As of 4/13/10.

    The 10-day moving average of this indicator is 96% and the one-day reading is 97%.  This oscillator has shown the tendency to remain overbought for extended periods of time, while oversold measures tend to be much more abrupt.

  • Is it better to look at high rs stocks trading above 50 dma rather than just all of them...or do they both generally say the same thing? for example, about 91% of stocks in the sp500 are currently trading above their 50dma, not too different from what you have showing on your chart

  • Author’s reply » If you look at the chart, you can see that during some periods of time, less than 20% of the HighRS universe is trading above its 50-day MA.

     

    These periods of HighRS under-performance are periodic and should be expected. No strategy is going to be able to outperform all the time (if HighRS always outperformed, the chart would be a horizontal line at the top of chart).

     

    As far as trying to time when you should be invested in HighRS based on a moving average indicator, please read this post:
