Gold Miners ETF Trading Signals

MacroVar estimates the following signals: Gold Miners ETF momentum, Gold Miners ETF trend, Gold Miners ETF oscillator, Gold Miners ETF RSI and Gold Miners ETF returns.

Gold Miners ETF Momentum

Momentum 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.
