The Concensus Indicator

Nasdaq New Highs

Stepping back and looking at something we identified as this market continued higher – participation was decreasing.  Now each indicator is different in how it contributes to understanding market movements.  The New Highs is in the buy zone.   But it can remain at this level for some time.  It’s influence is minimized at this point.

Timing the stock market is all about reading the clues from the data. Here we look at Nasdaq Cumulative Volume for a signal.

The bullish interpretation of this data is that cumulative volume has exceeded the previous two highs.  Price action tends to follow action confirmed by volume.

The bearish interpretation of this indicator is that if it crosses below the  yellow line, which is the 34-day moving average – we should move into a mid term sell off…  We’re not there yet.

Nasdaq Charts:

One consideration with all my indicators is that I try to adust the scale so that they move with the market. This will give you a better understanding of the relative correlation or lack thereof.

After correlation, the next consideration is level and direction. If you have high correlation, and the indicator is moving up, then the market is likely to move higher. If you have a buy signal (turn higher) coming
off a relatively low level, then you could be on the verge of a significant move higher.

QQQ –QQQQ Buy/Sell Spread Momentum Chart

The spread/momentum indicators assist in your trading of the QQQQ (Nasdaq 100), GOLD (Gold), US Dollar, USO (Oil) and TLT (20 year bonds). They are tuned to deliver short and intermediate term buy and sell signals. The level, direction, and position to the zero line are keys in interpreting these indicators. For example, direction determines mode and a buy signal ‘above zero’ is more bullish than a buy signal ‘below zero’.
