Japan ETF Trading Signals
MacroVar estimates the following signals: Japan ETF momentum, Japan ETF trend, Japan ETF oscillator, Japan ETF RSI and Japan ETF returns.
Japan ETF MomentumMomentum trading is used to capture moves in shorter timeframes than trends. Momentum is the relative change occurring in markets. Relative change is different to a trend. A long-term trend can be up but the short-term momentum of a specific market can be 0. If a market moves down and then moves up and then moves back down the net relative change in price is 0. That means momentum is 0. A short-term positive momentum, with a long-term downtrend results in markets with no momentum.
MacroVarJapan ETF momentum signal ranges from -100 to +100. The Japan ETF momentum signal is derived as the mean value from 4 calculations for the Japan ETF. The timeframes monitored are the following: 1 Day (1 trading day), 1 Week (5 trading days), 1 Month (20 trading days), 3 Months (60 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. Japan ETF return is calculated for the specific timeframe and 2. if the return calculated is higher than 0, signal value output is 1 else signal value is -1. Japan ETF EWJ momentum signal is the aggregate of the the 4 values. A technical momentum rollover is identified when Japan ETF momentum signal moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.
Japan ETF trendJapan ETF trend signal ranges from -100 to +100. Japan ETF trend indicator is the mean value of the 8 calculations described below. The timeframes monitored are the following: 1-month (20 trading days), 3-months (60 trading days), 6-months (125 trading days), 1-year (250 trading days)
For each timeframe, the following calculations are performed: 1. Japan ETF Closing price vs Japan ETF moving average (MA) calculation: If Japan ETF is greater than Japan ETF MA value is +1, else -1, 2. Japan ETF Moving average slope calculation: if current Japan ETF moving average is higher than the previous MA, Japan ETF upward slope +1, else -1
Japan ETF trend model can be used as a trend strength indicator. Japan ETF trend strength values ranging between +75 and +100 or -75 and -100 show strong trend strength.
A technical trend rollover is identified when Japan ETF trend strength indicator moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.
The most important trend indicator
The Japan ETF 52-week simple moving average and its slope are the most important indicators defining a market’s trend. Japan ETF is in an uptrend when Japan ETF price is higher than the 52-week moving average and the Japan ETF 52-week moving average has an upward slope. If fundamentals of the market have not changed and the moving average slope is still in uptrend, a price drop signifies a market correction and not a change of trend. Traders should watch oscillators like the Japan ETF oscillator and Japan ETF RSI to buy the dip and still follow the trend. The moving average slope turn signifies a change of trend.
Japan ETF oscillatorThe Japan ETF oscillator estimated by MacroVar is the z-score of the current Japan ETF price versus Japan ETF 1-year simple moving average price. The formula for the Japan ETF oscillator is:
Japan ETF oscillator = (Current Price – 250 trading days Japan ETF simple moving average price) / (250 days Japan ETF price standard deviation)
Japan ETF oversold conditions
Japan ETF is oversold when it is subject to a persistent downward pressure due to extreme fund outflows. When the Japan ETF is oversold it is often due for a rebound. Values of the Japan ETF oscillator lower than -2.5 signify oversold conditions. It must be noted that the Japan ETF oscillator must be analyzed ibn conjunction with the rest of Japan ETF quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the Japan ETF RSI.
Japan ETF overbought conditions
Japan ETF is overbought when it is subject to a persistent upward pressure due to extreme fund inflows. When the Japan ETF is overbought it is often due for a correction. Values of the Japan ETF oscillator higher than +2.5 signify overbought conditions. It must be noted that the MacroVar oscillator must be compared to the rest of the Japan ETF quantitative factors. Traders should pay less attention to overbought or oversold conditions during strong trends. They should pay close attention during counter trends and all combined with the RSI.
Japan ETF RSI indicatorThe RSI indicator measures the speed and change of price movements. The RSI indicator oscillates between 0 and 100. RSI is a useful indicator during normal trending market conditions when an asset price oscillates around its trend value. During big moves and strong trends however, like short squeezes or price spikes RSI and other oscillators don’t work.
During normal trend market conditions and when Japan ETF is in a downtrend RSI values between 50-60 signify overbought conditions before the downtrend is ready to resume. During Japan ETF uptrend, RSI values of 40 to 50 signify oversold conditions before the uptrend is ready to resume. It is strongly not recommended to enter a position when the RSI is “overbought” and falling or vice versa.
Japan ETF returnsMacroVar calculates Japan ETF returns for the following timeframes: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. The formula for calculating returns is:
Japan ETF returns = (Japan ETF Closing Price – Japan ETF Previous Price)/(Japan ETF Previous Price)
