How can I use the price breadth tables?
By Arthur B. Hill - Mon 07-Aug-06 8:02 AM EDTQuestion: How can I use the price breadth tables?
Answer: In his book, What Works on Wall Street, James O’Shaughnessy lists relative strength as one of the best methodologies for beating the market. The Price Breadth Table ranks over 50 ETFs by their breadth performance for 1-day, 5-day, 10-day, 20-day, 60-day, 120-day and 250-day periods. You can click on the column headings to sort by your desired timeframe and see which ETFs are outperforming and which are underperforming. I like to look at quarterly performance and use the 60-day Average of AD Net% for ranking. ETFs in the top 1/3 of the table show relative strength and these make the short list for possible buy candidates. ETFs in the bottom 1/3 of the table are deemed relatively weak and make the short list for possible sell candidates.
