Ranking Critical ETFs

Includes: RWO, RWX, VHT, VNQ, VPU
by: Lowell Herr

Now that I have the capability to work with more than 20 ETFs within the ranking worksheet, I made a list of the critical securities one might use to construct a portfolio. There are three sector ETFs in this group and a special ranking of sector instruments will be conducted to determine which are part of this larger grouping.

While the ranking is important, also pay attention to the far-right Momentum column. VPU is a significant ETF at this time. I favor ETFs that both rank near the tip and have Momentum percentages greater than 50%. Not all 37 ETFs are used in the eleven portfolios tracked on this blog, but many are, particularly in the larger portfolios.

Read this article as this is what we are doing (in part) with the ITA Risk Reduction (ITARR) model and the momentum indicator associated with this ranking system.
