Final Week’s and eight Week Trailing Technical Rankings of Particular person ETFs

The Excel spreadsheet beneath signifies the weekly change within the Technical Rating (“TR”) of every particular person ETF. The technical rating or scoring system is a completely quantitative strategy that makes use of a number of technical issues that embrace however should not restricted to pattern, momentum, measurements of accumulation/distribution and relative power. If a person ETFs technical situation improves the Technical Rating TR rises and conversely if the technical situation continues to deteriorate the TR falls. The TR of every particular person ETF ranges from 0 to 50. The first take away from this unfold sheet must be the pattern of the person TRs both the continued enchancment or deterioration, in addition to a change in route. Secondarily, a really low rating can sign an oversold situation and conversely a continued very excessive quantity could be considered as an overbought situation, however with due warning, over offered situations can proceed at apace and overbought securities which have exhibited extraordinary momentum can simply change into extra overbought. A sustained pattern change must unfold within the TR for it to be actionable. The TR of every particular person ETF in every of the three geographic areas may also reveal comparative relative power or weak spot of the technical situation of the choose ETF in the identical area.

As could be seen above, of the three Rising Market Nation areas we monitor, solely the 5 Latin America Nation ETFs have sported Technical Rankings (“TRs”) which have been above the “pink zone” (above 15) for the previous 9 weeks leaving the Whole Lat AM EM Rating down just about unchanged over the previous three weeks from 190 to 189.5 (we highlighted the continued relative outperformance of the 5 Lat Am Nation ETFs in our final EM Weblog . The Whole EMEA EM Rating that features 8 separate nation ETF TRs has carried out far worse over the identical interval (over the previous), dropping 25.8% to 168.5 from 227. The poorest geographic area Whole Rating change since we printed three weeks in the past has been the Asia-Pacific EM Rating that features 9 separate nation ETF TRs. The Asia-Pacific Whole Rating has fallen to 159.5 from 263, by 103.5 “handles” or 39.3% for the reason that February 18th studying. The SPDR S&P Rising Asia Pacific ETF (GMF) has accelerated decrease over the previous three weeks (chart offered beneath) and has been declining for the reason that February sixteenth excessive of 146.78 to final week’s closing low of 104.96, a -28.5% drop. Notice within the decrease panel of the chart that MACD has been monitoring sharply decrease reflecting the current velocity of draw back value momentum. Admittedly, the GMF shouldn’t be a vastly liquid ETF (with a 90-day Mixture Quantity of 28,700 shares) however the chart of the ETF serves to symbolize the liquidation of the underlying equities within the Asia-Pac area. The panel following the chart of the GMF are the highest 15 holdings within the ETF and are closely weighted to Taiwanese, Chinese language, and Indian equities facilitated by investments in Depositary Receipts.

The EEM with This Week’s Whole ETF Rating “TER” Overlayed

The Whole ETF Rating (“TER”) Indicator is a complete of all 22 ETF rankings and could be checked out as a affirmation/divergence indicator in addition to an overbought oversold indicator. As a affirmation/divergence instrument: If the broader market as measured by the iShares MSCI Rising Markets Index ETF (EEM) continues to rally with out a commensurate transfer or increased transfer within the TE” the continued rally within the EEM Index turns into more and more in jeopardy. Conversely, if the EEM  continues to print decrease lows and there’s little change or a constructing enchancment within the TER a optimistic divergence is registered. That is, in a style, is sort of a conventional A/D Line. As an overbought/oversold indicator: The nearer the TER will get to the 1100 degree (all 22 ETFs having a TR of fifty) “issues can’t get significantly better technically” and a rising quantity particular person ETFs have change into “stretched” the extra of an opportunity of a pullback within the EEM. On the flip aspect the nearer to an excessive low “issues can’t get a lot worse technically” and a rising variety of ETFs are “washed out technically” an oversold rally or measurable low is near be in place. The 13-week exponential shifting common in Pink smooths the unstable TER readings and analytically is a greater indicator of pattern. 

The EEM Whole Technical Rating (“TER”) of the 22 Rising Market Nation ETFs fell to 517.5 from 587.5, leading to a +12.03% lower week over week. Over the 3-week interval since we final publish the Whole EM Rating fell -23.8% to 517.5 from 680. Though it was a pointy drop it was not commensurate with the EEM which fell 12.62% over the identical interval. We remind readers that as a result of a  good quantity EM ETFs are thinly traded and are topic to large swings which in flip creates unstable particular person Technical Rating modifications, that the calculation of the TER additionally fluctuates in an analogous manor. Analytically, specializing in the 13-week shifting common of the TER is a much better indicator. Though that shifting common has not made a brand new low it’s nonetheless trending decrease, and as could be seen on the chart above, the sequence of upper lows within the TER for the reason that July of final 12 months was ameliorated with final weeks studying because the EEM has traded down sharply over the previous three weeks. TER divergences take time to develop, and provided that we start to see value get away of the down pattern or the TER decisively get away of the contracting triangle to increased highs would we be ready to recommend that the EEM could also be out of the woods.
