Looking at the TSX Composite at Trader’s Narrative

The Toronto Composite Index has been whacked with the double whammy of a general market drop and a commodity pull-back (oil and gold). The result has taken the index down from almost 12,500, in mid-April, to around 11,800.

Previously, I wrote about my unique take on % of stocks above their moving averages, and below you can see it applied to the TSX index:

As you can see, the ratio is fast approaching levels which have marked significant market bottoms. I don’t think we’re necessarily there yet, but the situation does deserve to be closely watched.

    I don’t get the right scale… can there be more than 100% of stocks above both their 50 and 200 day MAs? Should 1.00 be the max?

    Perhaps my explanation wasn’t clear enough. Of course you can not have more than 100% or less than 0% of stocks above any MA. The right scale of the graph is showing a ratio: the % of stocks above 50 MA divided by the % of stocks above 200 MA (in the TSX Composite). As I point out, that is my unique take on this metric. Hope that is clear now.
