NEW Sectors Tools starting 1/31/2011

Filed under: Persistence Lists - Daily — daytrend @ 5:06 pm

Have you wanted to track sector rotations through time and get a feel for the biggest winners and losers?  I have.  The SectorsUP and SectorsDOWN worksheets are pretty useful.  Find them among the tabs at the bottom. 

If you have a Windows machine, or a Mac with any recent Excel except 2008, you will want to enable Excel macros so you can get the most out of this and other tools that will be introduced soon.  If you can, enable macros now.

Activate the SectorsUP sheet and look at the notes in row 1.  The SectorsDOWN sheet is similar but works in reverse.

Notice that the top row (row 2) is for today (today’s date is in column 1).  The cells to the right show today’s top 8 winning stocks in each sector.  The top line in each cell contains a “sector symbol,” which you can find in the “AllStocks” sheet.  The sectors are sorted by the average of the 1-day percentage change of the top 20% of liquid stocks in the sector; it is helpful to think of those winning stocks as a proxy for the sector in the “up” direction.  I have found this method of sorting sectors to be more useful than sorting by the 1-day percentage change of all the liquid stocks in the sector because I’m not holding the whole sector. 

The number just below the “sector symbol” is the average, 1-day percentage change of all the liquid stocks in the sector.  Again, the “AllStocks” sheet contains a list of those stocks, for today.  They change slightly every day.

Consider that you may want to pick a sector and see how it has ranked recently.  If you have Excel macros enabled, you can click that sector, on any row, to highlight it on every row.  Do it.  Hopefully, you will find the highlighting to be a big time-saver!  I do.

Compared to the Persistence lists, and the Momo tools to be introduced next, the Sectors tool has no special algorithm.  It is just one of many such presentations for sectors and stocks data that have been available for years.  Let me know if you find it useful or you know of ways to improve it.  (daytrend at gmail or @daytrend)

Enjoy… and hit me with any questions or problems.

Persistence Lists and Sector Tools 1/31/2011

Filed under: Persistence Lists - Daily — daytrend @ 4:27 pm

If you missed it, the Persistence UP and DOWN Lists are becoming part of a larger toolset I’m introducing over the next few weeks. The additional tools complement the Persistence Lists, and they are focused at exposing sector rotations and momentum leaders, shortly after market turns. But more than that, they are presented in much more accessible ways. Tools coming a little later are designed for traders who want to sometimes dig deeper into historical outperformance than possible before. Traders who are natural analytics will love them.

Be sure to take this time to get comfortable with the tools in the new, Excel format, which is a temporary but important step in the evolution of this toolset. Here is today’s file:  Daytrend_20110131.xls

I’m thinking of generating these tools soon after the close, each day, rather than at midday. If you have a problem with the new time, or if you like it better, please let me know.

The Persistence UP and DOWN Lists will come out shortly after the close.  I’m thinking of making this permanent.  If this bothers you, let me know.  daytrend at gmail.  Thanks.

In case you missed yesterday’s announcement, over the next few weeks I am making available additional tools for traders may use for preparation.

You can find the Persistence UP and DOWN Lists, and the other tools as they come out, in this Excel file. Daytrend_20110124midday.  Be sure to read the announcement and download this file.

Introducing New Preparation Tools for Traders

Filed under: Persistence Lists - Daily — daytrend @ 7:12 pm

If you’re an equities trader, you will love the tools I am introducing, starting today.  These tools complement the Persistence UP and DOWN Lists, and they are focused at exposing sector rotations and momentum leaders, shortly after market turns.  But more than that, they are presented in much more accessible ways.  Tools coming a little later are designed for traders who want to sometimes dig deeper into historical outperformance than has been possible before.  Traders who are natural analytics will love them.  None of these tools are new; I have evolved them from >1-5 years, using variations of them for my preparation.

Unfortunately, these tools outgrew a simple blog, so, temporarily, I will distribute them in Excel.  Download the Excel file each day to access them.  For best experience, traders will want to use a Windows machine and have macros enabled.  The ListBuilder tool, coming next, unlocks the Persistence Lists and makes surgically stalking stocks easier than ever before, but it requires running Excel macros (which requires a Windows machine).  I am aware of the inconvenience this causes some traders.  Mac users will still be able to access the data, but the ListBuilder, in Excel, will not run without macros.

If you are familiar with the Persistence UP and DOWN Lists, rest assured that they have not changed.  But, now, you can see the stocks by sector, and you can see historical lists much more easily.  By examining historical lists (and using the ListBuilder) you will have a simple way to put an end to missing trend entries as they pullback and sometimes fall off the list.  Think how you can you use it to improve your results.

So, in the interest of starting small, grab the Excel file and try to get comfortable with it.  Hit me with any questions by email (daytrend at gmail) or @daytrend or skype.  As soon as traders are comfortable with the Excel file, the next tool will appear.

Open the Excel file.  You will see tabs (at the bottom) for each Persistence List and for AllStocks.  The Persistence Lists are organized by day and by sector.  Think of the abbreviations at the top as “sector symbols,” and find them in the AllStocks sheet.  It’s a good idea to memorize them, but most are intuitive.  Some of you are familiar with them from the bottom of each of my Market Stats posts… same stuff.  The AllStocks sheet contains all the stocks that made the first cut for “liquidity” before being considered for any of the tools.

To learn about these lists and how to use them, see the Explanation page to the right.

For best results, you frequently need to make use of prior lists.  The Explanation page describes two strategies.  If trading directly from the Persistence Lists, you are likely to miss entries.

The Persistence Lists are evolving fast.  To keep up, and to see them used in action, see my “Edge” blog: http://daytrend.wordpress.com/category/edge/

*****Starting soon, the Persistence Lists will be more accessible and I will begin making available tools and lists that complement them.

For a while, I will be distributing them in an Excel .xls file.  For best experience, you will need a Windows machine with macros enabled.
