Order does NOT imply strength.

The following is a comparison of last week's selections to this week.  Here, order DOES IMPLY STRENGTH, with the strongest performing at the top of the list:



Color coding is as follows: 
  • YELLOW = no change in position
  • GREEN = moved upward in position relative to last week
  • RED = moved down in position relative to last week
  • WHITE = new entry; not in top 100 relative to last week
What I find interesting about the above graph is that we have a large number of ETFs that have remained in position (YELLOW) or have moved upward (GREEN), resulting in little rotation.  This is significant, and it is the first time this has occured since I started this method back in late March 2010.

Overall, the Top 25 ETF fund is up 7.95% since inception on 11/26/10.  The maximum drawdown in this period is less than 2%.
