S&P 500 Bottom Indicator: High-Low Index Ratio
$RHSPX is the S&P 500 High-Low Index Ratio. This is calculated by taking the S&P 500 New Highs divided by the S&P 500 New Lows. We use this as a contrarian indicator. When the $RHSPX spikes below 20% to some very low number under 10%, this usually means that the $SPX is near or at a bottom.
As of July 27, 2007, the $RHSPX is at 7.4%. While the $RHSPX can continue to go even lower, we are probably near or at a bottom on the $SPX.
Shouldn't be Used By Itself
These indicators should not be used by itself. Combined with other technical analysis such as resistance and support level analysis, these indicators can be very useful tools.
