Crypto Market Barometer released on

  Crypto Market Barometer released Today I published my simple but easy-to-read Crypto Market Barometer on our website Click here to get to the new Crypto Market Barometer. This is how the main chart looks like: What's behind the new Crypto Market Barometer We believe that one simple but effective method of gauging the health of a market is to look at how many of the most important individual assets trade above their important SMAs. Since SMAs are a proven way of determining the current trend, a market must be in an uptrend, if more than 50% of its biggest assets trade above their long-term SMAs. If they trade below their long-term SMAs, they must be in a downtrend. For the crypto market, I decided to check the popular BitPanda Crypto Index BCI10. It contains the 10 biggest crypto currencies by market capitalization, and frankly, by only looking at BitCoin, Ethereum, Polkadot and maybe Binance, we already have most of the market covered (again, in

A quick roundup for Dow Jones

Dow Jones Market Breadth

With this blog post I will provide the latest market breadth data for the Dow Jones index. At the time of writing, the data for today was not delivered yet by our provider, this is why today is not yet included yet in the dashboard.

Here is the long-term view of Dow Jone's market breadth data (image provided by


The McClellan Summation Index for Dow Jones allows comparing the strength of the summer months with today's situation. We can clearly see that bulls have their troubles with the Dow Jones index.

Here is the middle-term view of Dow Jone's market breadth data (image provided by so we can get into detail:

The McClellan Oscillator for Dow Jones recovered and is now above the zero line again. This is a slightly bullish sign.

The McClellan Summation Index stopped declining but still has very low values. Maybe we will see a bottom here.

Now to the interesting part: The percentage of index members trading above their SMA 50, SMA 100 and SMA 200 reached their low at Sep21/22. Since then, this indicator has recovered slightly.

At the moment, the percentage of index members trading above their SMA 50 is at 33,33%, for SMA 100 it's 43,44% and for SMA 200 it's 60%. The trend for those graphs is no longer downwards.

From a technical point of view, the Dow Jones might be stable for now:

The index stayed above the 33 810 mark which is the old high from April 09.

The index is no longer oversold, but still below it's SMA 20. Today, I also realized that a trendline can be drawn from a low in January until Sep20 and Oct 04. Today, the index stopped at this trendline and had an intraday reversal.

The RSI also looks better now (see image above).

Dow Jones still doesn't look bullish, but a bearish scenario begins to fade.

Two marks are now very important:

- The Dow Jones must trade above 34528 again and ideally reconquer 35 050.

- Also, it should trade above its SMA 20 again

If the Dow Jones falls below 33 810, the SMA 200 provides another level of support. However, this would be the last significant support and then the next stop could be 32 000. For me, this scenario is not too likely, though.
