Market Talk with Piranha is currently moving to its new home at chrisperruna.com. The new site is up and running but many of the posts need editing as the images and stock charts did not transfer successfully (thanks blogger). I will post all new entries to both blogs – Thank you for your patience while I make this change!

New High - New Low Ratio

Here’s the latest NH-NL ratio chart with weekly numbers updated to the week prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. I excluded the short week so it wouldn’t skew the chart. Although the week ending on Saturday, November 18, 2006 had the highest average number of new highs (541) for the year, the strength calculation ranked it tenth in 2006 behind many of the readings from January and October. New highs were greater during the week of 11/13-11/17 but the strength was less than three of the weeks in October which saw the number of new lows 30%-50% lower. Both sets of numbers play an equal role in the calculation of this NH-NL strength ratio.



Yesterday saw a reading of 525-35 which equals an 87% rating but the readings were weaker earlier in the week so the total won’t make the top 10 (as long as today is quiet). In addition to the NH-NL chart, I wanted to post the chart of the number of stocks on the S&P 500 that are trading above their 50-d m.a. because it has slipped to its lowest level since August.

To calculate the percentage correctly, use this formula:
(New Highs – New Lows) / (New Highs + New Lows) * 100 = X%
