It’s been one impressive rally…by some measures. The indexes have made an about-face from the March lows, refusing to look back as they erase so much of the carnage of the bear market. The move has been persistent and consistent…just a ton of green days.
But very few big days. Have you noticed?
I’ve been amazed at the lack of volatility, especially recently. It seems a huge day for the DJIA has become a triple-digit net change from the prior day’s closing levels. Just a few months ago, we were getting gaps that big to start the day, nevermind the several-hundred-point moves which were commonplace. Needless to say, it has indeed become a quiet rally.
In order to understand it a bit better though, I turned to an indicator to help make sense of it all, and I was surprised at what I found.
In the video below, I’ll walk you through my thought process that led me to doing this, and of course I’ll explain what it is that I discovered. Of equal importance, you’ll understand how and why navigating this market for as long as this rally runs its course will require a different approach than what is ‘typical’ (if there is such a thing in the market).
