Strongest ETFs

Virtually every other website that ranks ETFs by strength uses the Relative Strength Index (RSI) to do so. That is because it is a quick and convenient upload for the operators of a website. Also, few websites have staff with the mathematical expertise necessary to create anything better. However, we do create our own algorithms and indicators. The strength algorithm we use is one of these. It is proprietary, and it is not used anywhere else on the Internet. It is far more complex than the simplistic RSI and far more effective at finding stocks that are not only strong but that also have strong chart patterns.

If you scan 8000 stocks with the Relative Strength Index (RSI), you will find that many of the stocks that rank high are not very attractive because of nearby overhead resistance or because the surge of strength measured is not really significant for some other reason (a non-significant rebound in a bad pattern). In fact, a stock’s chart pattern can be terrible even though its RSI is very high. The charts of stocks on the list selected by our own strength screens, however, will look much more attractive. The more stocks that are screened, the greater the difference in output will be. When you look at ETFs ranked highest by our strength indicator, you will know you are looking at ETFs that are the strongest available. (Incidentally, the image above, when expanded, looks much smaller than it really is. Use the “Strongest ETFs” tab on the left side of your screen to see a more accurately rendered list).

Here is a sample strategy. A person could select the top ten ETFs and hold them until one falls out of the top 30 list (the ETF in the 30th place is in bold type for easy reference). The “drop-out” could then be replaced with the highest ranking ETF not currently in the portfolio. In this way the portfolio will become weighted to favor the strongest sectors or markets in the world. Adjustments could be made once a week, once a month, or whatever. For some other ideas, click on the “Strongest ETFs” tab on the navigation panel (left side of your screen), and read the strategies mentioned there. Why pay a money manager 1% to 3% of your investment assets to manage your portfolio when you could create your own portfolio that is always invested in the strongest ETFs?

Though we do not use the RSI to determine which ETFs will be included on the list, we do include an RSI reading and a volume change reading for each scan. They are included because some subscribers may find a use for them in selecting an ETF for purchase. For example, an ETF that is rebounding from support (a rising trendline, for example) with a surge in volume is much more attractive than an ETF that rebounds from support with a decrease in volume.

Dr. Winton Felt Educational background. Dr. Felt did his graduate level studies in Systems Engineering/Applied Mathematics, English, Management, and Clinical Psychology. During a good portion of the time he was involved in his graduate studies, Dr. Felt also operated his own business, teaching advanced reading and study techniques at four colleges in Southern California, and conducting special classes for various Christian organizations. General history of securities-related experience. Felt began his study of security trading patterns (emphasizing the “point-and-figure” method and outcome probabilities associated with various patterns) when he was in his early 20's. He became a professional in the financial services industry in 1985. He did his basic brokerage training at Merrill Lynch and achieved perfect scores on the “Series 7” in the areas of “Portfolio Analysis” and “Investment Strategies.” At Merrill Lynch he became the “Mutual Fund Coordinator.” A few years later, he was recruited by Bateman Eichler, Hill Richards (Everen Securities) to finish the development of a stock-trading system and to use it in managing a pooled account. He then founded Asset Management Systems and continued his work on the development, analysis, and evaluation of investment disciplines and strategies. He used multivariate analysis to test the profitability of more than 50,000 investment strategies. He then used the results of his analyses to design high total-return strategies. He also wrote algorithms to enable a computer to search through thousands of stocks to identify those that have any of a variety of behavior patterns known as "setups," price and volume configurations that most often occur shortly before a price surge. Dr. Felt created the Market Bias Indicator (MBI), also known as the Felt Oscillator, the Force of Trend (Group Pressure Gradient) indicator, and a procedure for discovering what he calls "Key Intraday Levels." He managed portfolios, created investment disciplines, created the publication originally known as Value Indicator (later renamed The Valuator), created what was originally a 70-page weekly publication known as StockAlerts (our present StockAlerts subscription service is a derivation and subset of this no longer available publication), and was the founder of Stock Disciplines, LLC. Work and licenses before becoming the principal officer of Stock Disciplines, LLC. Dr. Felt has held various licenses as an investment professional. During the years immediately before he became the principal officer of Felt Financial, LLC. (through which he managed investment advisory accounts), Dr. Felt held a “Series 7” General Securities license and was registered with the NASD. He also held a “Series 24” license issued by the NASD. A “Series 7” will qualify a person to be a “Registered Representative” or “Investment Broker,” and is the license held by the more qualified “brokers” at major brokerage houses. This license is a prerequisite to sitting for the “Series 24” exam. The “Series 24” license is required for those who supervise other brokers (securities regulations stipulate that every Broker/Dealer firm must have at least one individual who is licensed as a "General Securities Principal"). Having both a “Series 7” and a “Series 24,” Dr. Felt had the NASD designation “General Securities Principal” (it should be noted that registration and licensing by the State of California, the SEC, or the NASD does not represent a mark of approval or endorsement by these regulatory bodies, but that certain standards of knowledge and other requirements have been satisfied). During this time, Dr. Felt was affiliated with Titan Value Equities Group, Inc. as a Registered Representative, a Registered Principal, an Advisory Associate, and as the manager of an Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction. Felt Financial, LLC. (of which Dr. Felt was the principal officer), remained in the investment advisory business as a Registered Investment Advisor until December 31, 2005. After that date Felt Financial, LLC. became Stock Disciplines, LLC., and the firm (and Dr. Felt) stopped providing investment advisory services (use the link below for more on why the advisory business was abandoned). Dr. Felt has also conducted investment strategy seminars and tutorials for investors and brokers. Past Affiliations.
