They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. So with the desire to document how Trendrating was effective in capturing 2018 negative trends across different markets we preferred to let the charts show the facts. As our customers know, the rating C signals the beginning of a bear trend and the rating D is a confirmation. By tracking the negative downgrades our active users had the opportunity to consider in time risk management actions to protect past profits.

The functionality “MARKETS” available in Trendrating is designed to track the evolution of trends more effectively than just by observing indices. Most indices are Market Cap weighted and therefore the price action of a few Mega and Large Cap stocks may distort an objective reading of the broad market trend. In the “MARKETS” functionality we measure and track the percentage of stocks trending up (A and B rated) vs. the percentage of stocks trending down (C and D rated). This metric is equal weighted for all the stocks in the database and provides a more neutral analysis of the overall market trend evolution. Bull markets are characterized by a percentage of As and Bs well above 60%. When this metric goes below 60% it usually marks the confirmation of a Bearish phase. Our customers can monitor the development of these aggregated data to spot in advance relevant changes in market trends.
