A Ranked List of the Strongest ETFs

Go directly to list

The ETFs are listed in rank order according to our strength algorithm.  The "% CH Vol" is included because it can be useful as a filter.  The number given is the percentage change in volume for the day of the listing.  The list is updated every day.  So, when you see an ETF on the list with a big positive number under "% CH Vol,"  it means you are looking at a strong ETF and that its volume is surging.  Say, for example that the number is 65.  That would mean that today there was a 65% surge in volume for that ETF.  The implication is that since the stock is on the list, it is probably in a rising trend and since the volume has just increased 65% there must be some enthusiasm driving the rising trend.  Generally, the greater the volume surge, the better.  This is especially so if the ETF has just pulled back to support and has started to rise again.  The volume surge on the reversal is a real positive indication.  There is commitment driving the rebound off of support.  To better visualize what we mean, go to http://www.stockdisciplines.com/buy-sell-time
and assume that the chart you are looking at is an ETF.  Notice the points (C, E, and G) where the stock rebounds from the rising trendline.  Ideally, on the way down to the trendline the volume will be decreasing.  Then, we like to see a surge in volume when the stock begins to rise at "C."   The surge in volume on the rebound confirms that the stock will probably go up rather than break down and trigger a stop loss.  In other words, it signals that "C" is a place you can take a position with relatively low risk.

A negative number means the volume shrunk today.  That suggests that there was not much commitment to that day's action.  If the stock declined 2% but volume rose 20%, that would be a bad omen.  A stock going down on an increase in volume is not what you want to see if you own the stock.  A stock that rises on a decrease in volume ( a negative number under "% CH Vol") is not as ominous, but it does suggest a lack of commitment on the buy side.  If the stock continues up, you want to see volume increase after that initial decline in volume.  If it doesn't, you can still go along for the ride but be prepared for a decline at any time by adjusting your stop losses higher each day the stock rises. If the volume declines each day the stock rises, we would sell and find a more promising situation.  If a stock declines and the volume declines at the same time (a negative number under "% CH Vol") we do not attach a lot of meaning to the decline.  If the stock has been strong and in a rising trend, a negative number under "% CH Vol" shows there is not much commitment to selling.  Therefore, we usually consider this to be an indication that the decline is just the result of some profit-taking by traders.  We would look for a volume increase when the stock starts rising again.  However, we do not argue with the stock if it declines through a level of support.  We would consider it a signal to sell if that happened.

Click the following link to read an article about volume and liquidity issues pertaining to ETFs, and our own comments about how we deal with those issues. ETF liquidity  

The RSI is provided for the same reason.  Our own strength algorithm finds stocks with  persistent strength.  That means they tend to be in a rising trend overall.  The RSI measures strength over a few weeks.  It can be used as a filter also.  For example, if you are trying to decide between two strong stocks, you might use the RSI to make the choice.  The greater the RSI, the stronger the stock is short-term.

So, both the "% CH Vol" and the RSI can be used to refine your decision-making.

ETFs are ranked relative to others in our database. If there are absolutely no attractive ETFs (unusual because of the diversity of the ETFs covered), we will still get a list, but the individuals in that list may not be very attractive. They will simply rank higher than the other ETFs.

In this list, we do not differentiate between Grantor Trusts (ETPs) like GLD, SLV, IAU, etc., and Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) like PMY, PTM, DGP, etc.
