Precious Metals industry Momentum

Momentum 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.

MacroVar Precious Metals momentum signal ranges from -100 to +100. The  Precious Metals momentum signal is derived as the mean value from 4 calculations for the  Precious Metals . 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.  Precious Metals 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.  Precious Metals momentum signal is the aggregate of the the 4 values. A technical momentum rollover is identified when  Precious Metals momentum signal moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

 Precious Metals
industry trend

 Precious Metals trend signal ranges from -100 to +100.  Precious Metals 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.  Precious Metals Closing price vs  Precious Metals moving average (MA) calculation: If  Precious Metals is greater than  Precious Metals MA value is +1, else -1, 2.  Precious Metals Moving average slope calculation: if current  Precious Metals moving average is higher than the previous MA,  Precious Metals upward slope +1, else -1
 Precious Metals trend model can be used as a trend strength indicator.  Precious Metals trend strength values ranging between +75 and +100 or -75 and -100 show strong trend strength.
A technical trend rollover is identified when  Precious Metals trend strength indicator moves from positive to negative value or vice-versa.

The most important trend indicator
The  Precious Metals 52-week simple moving average and its slope are the most important indicators defining a market’s trend.  Precious Metals is in an uptrend when  Precious Metals price is higher than the 52-week moving average and the  Precious Metals 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  Precious Metals oscillator and  Precious Metals RSI to buy the dip and still follow the trend. The moving average slope turn signifies a change of trend.

 Precious Metals
industry oscillator

The  Precious Metals oscillator estimated by MacroVar is the z-score of the current Precious Metals price versus  Precious Metals 1-year simple moving average price. The formula for the  Precious Metals oscillator is:
 Precious Metals oscillator = (Current Price – 250 trading days  Precious Metals simple moving average price) / (250 days  Precious Metals price standard deviation)

 Precious Metals oversold conditions
 Precious Metals is oversold when it is subject to a persistent downward pressure due to extreme fund outflows. When the  Precious Metals is oversold it is often due for a rebound. Values of the  Precious Metals oscillator lower than -2.5 signify oversold conditions. It must be noted that the  Precious Metals oscillator must be analyzed ibn conjunction with the rest of Precious Metals 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  Precious Metals RSI.
 Precious Metals overbought conditions
 Precious Metals is overbought when it is subject to a persistent upward pressure due to extreme fund inflows. When the  Precious Metals is overbought it is often due for a correction. Values of the  Precious Metals oscillator higher than +2.5 signify overbought conditions. It must be noted that the MacroVar oscillator must be compared to the rest of the  Precious Metals 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.

 Precious Metals RSI indicator

The 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  Precious Metals is in a downtrend RSI values between 50-60 signify overbought conditions before the downtrend is ready to resume. During Precious Metals 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.

 Precious Metals
industry returns

MacroVar calculates  Precious Metals returns for the following timeframes: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly. The formula for calculating returns is:

 Precious Metals returns = ( Precious Metals Closing Price –  Precious Metals Previous Price)/( Precious Metals Previous Price)
