S&P 500 Update For The Week Of August 13th 2018
The 60-day Caliber rose slightly to 120 last week which means that over the last 60 trading days the S&P 500 behaved as if it was made up of 120 completely independent stocks. The overall diversity has increased over the last couple of months so the stability of the market may have improved a bit. Higher Calibers sometimes coincided with better market conditions in the past but this might not be the case in the future. All stock trends are removed before the Caliber is calculated.
The correlation between a stock's return and it's Affinity fell to -0.04 last week. This long period of low correlations could indicate a challenging market for investors. The weekly ranking of stocks by Affinity is under the button below.
