Railroad industry Analysis

MacroVar monitors the performance, risk, trend and momentum of the Railroad industry by examining the stock and credit performance of major Railroad companies across the US, Europe, Eastern Europe and Asia Pacific. Railroad Stock performance is monitored by analyzing STOXX equity indices of major Railroad companies while Railroad credit performance is monitored by analyzing Markit iBoxx credit indices reflecting the performance of the Railroad high yield corporate bond market.

MacroVar also monitors fundamental indicators closely linked to the Railroad sector published monthly including analysis of sector specific PMI indicators, components of Manufacturing & Services PMI and Economic Sentiment Indicators analysis.

MacroVar also monitors other factors closely related to the Railroad industry like closely related financial markets or macroeconmic indicators.

MacroVar estimates the following signals:: Railroad momentum, Railroad trend, Railroad oscillator, Railroad RSI and Railroad returns.

Railroad industry description

The Railroad industry subsector includes companies providing industrial railway transportation and railway lines. Excludes passenger railway companies, which are classified under Travel & Tourism, and manufacturers of rail cars, which are classified under Commercial Vehicles & Trucks.p>

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

Railroad industry trend

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

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

Railroad industry oscillator

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

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

Railroad 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 Railroad is in a downtrend RSI values between 50-60 signify overbought conditions before the downtrend is ready to resume. DuringRailroad 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.

Railroad industry returns

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

Railroad returns = (Railroad Closing Price – Railroad Previous Price)/(Railroad Previous Price)
