Charts Of Special Interest
- Bull Market Extensions
There've only been two before this one, in 1961 and 1987. Here's what they looked like.
- ISI's Hedge Fund Survey
It's now the best sentiment indicator of them all. Here's an explanation -- and a chart.
- Carpenter Analytix HFA
Here's another -- and different -- view of hedge fund sentiment. Robin Carpenter's Hedge Fund Analytix (HFA) tracks statistical asset exposures -- stocks, bonds, dollar, and commodity -- among managed futures hedge funds. Here's an explanation -- and a chart.
- Breakaway Momentum
We just saw it for just the 20th time since World War II -- and third time in 2009!
- Tracking The Rydex Funds' Money Flows
How we calculate them -- and why they are so valuable to follow. (NOTE: The Rydex data is becoming less and less helpful due to the migration of assets into ETF's. As a result, we're also now calculating the same inflow/outflow data for the ProFunds ETF's, which include index and leveraged index ETF's plus inverse and leveraged inverse index ETF's.)
- "Normalized" NASDAQ/NYSE Volume
This is the best way to measure speculative activity; we've been using it since 1979. An explanation of what it is, why it works, and how to calculate it.
- Fidelity Sector Fund Cash/Asset Ratio
We had this on the site because it was such a great indicator. Alas; it no longer works; money pouring into money market funds of all stripes have distorted the ratio beyond belief. (It was 12.9% and 14.1% at the July-October 2007 tops!) We left it up here for any historical value it might have.
