Technical Leaders ETF

By Arthur B. Hill - Thu 28-Feb-08 11:10 AM EST

PowerShares is expanding its technical leaders ETFs with two new offerings. Dorsey Wright Associates (DWA) has teamed up with PowerShares to manage these ETFs. DWA developed algorithms to identify the technical leaders. While I have not seen the algorithms, I do know that DWA focuses on Point & Figure analysis and relative strength. This is a pretty good combination to find the strongest stocks in a given set. The two new ETFs are the Developed Markets Technical Leaders Portfolio (PIZ) and the Emerging Markets Technical Leaders Portfolio (PIE). Powershares and DWA also have the a Technical Leaders ETF that concentrates on U.S. shares (PDP). The table below shows the 100 stocks currently in this ETF. These stocks are deemed by DWA to be the "technical leaders".
