1 POST Copper and Dow Transports indicators of world growth (370)


copper-and-dow-transports-indicators-of-world-growthSimon Baker of Baker Avenue Asset Management said that copper and Dow Transports are leading indicators for world growth. His firm uses a proprietary index he called the 'Baker Ave Market Sentiment Indicator (BAMSI)'. This indicator is a basket of over 4,000 stocks, measuring momentum and market sentiment. Currently the indicator is negative.

From Yahoo Ticker: 20110924 Extract

Baker notes the performance of copper, or "Dr. Copper" as it's called by market pros for the base metal's ability to predict economic action. Typically when copper is moving higher, or at least stable over $4, the economy is in at least okay shape. Copper is down over 17% in September, currently sitting somewhere in the mid-$3.00's.


Another portent of ill are the Dow Transports (DJT), as evidenced by the FedEx' (FDX) horrific quarter and warning this week. "If people aren't shipping then people aren't buying," notes Baker. For Dow Transport traditionalists, weak transports mean a weak economy, which means bad things for stocks.



Here is the BAMSI to mid 2009.

Looks pretty good Simon Baker, but we like the better than 80% accuracy of cycles that one can find in Copper and Dow Transports.

As of today copper has falled from $62 to $42 and Dow Transports have fallen from $5600 to $4200. Mr Baker should also add Hurst cycles to his tool chest, what do you think?.

Investing Quote...

.."Don't take action with a trade until the market, itself, confirms your opinion. Being a little late in a trade is insurance that your opinion is correct. In other words, don't be an impatient trader"...

Jesse Livermore


..The time of maximum pessimism is the best time to buy and the time of maximum optimism is the best time to sell"..

John Templeton


Unless you can watch your stock holding decline by 50 per cent without becoming panic stricken, you should not be in the stock market.

Warren Buffett


My experience has been that in successful businesses and fund management companies, which performed well over the long-term, some courageous decisions were taken. Courageous fund managers reduce their positions when markets become frothy and accumulate equities when economic and social conditions are dire. They avoid the most popular sectors, which are therefore over-valued, and invest in neglected sectors because being neglected by investors they are by definition inexpensive. The point is that it is very hard and that it takes a lot of courage for a fund manager to avoid the most popular sectors and stocks and to invest in unloved assets. Finally, every investor understands the principle ‘buy low and sell high’, but when prices are low nobody wants to buy.

Marc Faber




..“One must search through a maze of complex and contradictory details to get to the significant facts … Then he must be able to operate coldly, clearly, and skilfully on the basis of those facts.” The challenge for the successful speculator is “how to disentangle the cold hard facts from the rather warm feelings of the people dealing with the facts.” Moreover, “if you get all the facts, your judgment can be right; if you don’t get all the facts, it can’t be right”...

Bernard Baruch
