1 POST Dow theory warning from the Utilities Index
dow-theory-warning-from-the-utilities-indexCharles Dow died in 1902, and the investors should thank him for his ever lasting Dow Theory Analysis.

Carrying on this blog theme looking at the Utility stocks. Previous post.

Formula for when the Great Stock Market Rally ends



You can learn about Dow Theory here

This post is concerned with the 4th tenet.


Stock market averages must confirm each other


In Dow's time, the US was a growing industrial power. The US had population centers but factories were scattered throughout the country. Factories had to ship their goods to market, usually by rail. Dow's first stock averages were an index of industrial (manufacturing) companies and rail companies. To Dow, a bull market in industrial's could not occur unless the railway average rallied as well, usually first. According to this logic, if manufacturers' profits are rising, it follows that they are producing more. If they produce more, then they have to ship more goods to consumers. Hence, if an investor is looking for signs of health in manufacturers, he or she should look at the performance of the companies that ship their output to market, the railroads. The two averages should be moving in the same direction. When the performance of the averages diverge, it is a warning that change is in the air.




The above is correct in saying the transports should confirm the industrial index, also the utility index ideally should not out perform the transports, this is because the utility index is considered a safe harbor in times of great risk.

If the utilities out perform transports and/or industrial's then the smart money favor safety which indicates they favor water or electric dividend paying companies over trucking, rail road, consumer, technology or financial companies.

This is major sector rotation which signals great risk in the wider market is upon us or very nearly upon us.

Changes in the world is the source of all market moves, to catch and ride the change we believe a combination of Gann Angles, Cycles, Wyckoff and Ney logic is the best way to ride the change, after all these methods have been used successfully for 70+ years.

"Stock market technique is not an exact science. Stock (and commodities) prices are made by the minds of men (and women). Mechanical trading methods or mathematical formulas cannot compete with good human market judgment."..

Richard D Wyckoff


.."Earnings don’t move the overall market; it’s the Federal Reserve Board… focus on the central banks and focus on the movement of liquidity… most people in the market are looking for earnings and conventional measures. It’s liquidity that moves markets"...

Stan Druckenmiller
