US30 H4 Chart Signs of Support and Daily Chart Potential Rotation

  • US30


FXCM's Dow Industrials proxy, the US30, is showing signs of support. The green short moving average is above the slower orange moving average (blue rectangle). The stochastic is also showing a growing momentum and has moved above 80 (aqua arrow). The longer the stochastic stays in this area the great the likelihood of a swing movement in the US30.

US30 vs NAS100

Below we look at the daily relative strength of US30 against the NAS100. The US30 is the numerator and the NAS100 is the denominator. The fact that the green EMA is above the orange EMA and that the RSI has moved above 50, shows that the numerator has started to outperform the denominator. The US30 represents a distinctly cyclical part of the stock market, whilst the NAS100 represents growth stocks. The relative strength here suggests a reallocation of portfolios from growth back into the cyclical side of the stock market.


Past Performance: Past Performance is not an indicator of future results.


The support and the rotation of capital for and into the US30 has taken place as the Fed pivots to the hawkish side and as the participation rate ticks up. Higher rates will tend to hit growth stocks hardest and the labour market improvement suggests that the needed solutions provided by growth stocks during lockdown may be on the wane. It is still early with heightened risk from omicron, but if the daily chart's EMAs develop angle and separation whilst the RSI maintains above 50, the relative strength of the US30 and cyclicals is likely to continue.
