My favorite trend following indicator is something we co-created with Ned Davis Research. It looks at the underlying trends in 22 industry sectors and scores the weight of evidence on a 0 to 100 scale. Here is the chart if you haven’t seen it before (note: I post it every Wednesday afternoon in Trade Signals). The trend for equities is currently bullish.
What about bond exposure? We monitor the Zweig Bond Model.
Please refer to the March 10, 2017 post of On My Radar for an explanation of how it works.
