When I get asked about what I think the most important technical indicators are, I have to start with price. This is where it all begins and ends. Everything else is just a derivative of price. Let’s not forget that. We can use all sorts of other things to help supplement that price analysis, but only if we understand that is all they are, supplements.
After price, for me it’s momentum and relative strength that we’re looking for. We want to be in stocks outperforming other stocks and showing positive momentum. Why mess around with stocks showing weakness and not showing bullish momentum? That makes little sense. Today we are going to focus on the areas showing the most relative strength and momentum, how to profit from it, and what that means for the overall market.
