Relative Rotational Graphs

Recommended Posts

Interesting proxy Bond yield chart here on a RRG using  ETF's to demonstrate the  2 - 10 yield curve flattening over the 5 week period may give a clue to near future bond markets. (see article link)

For anyone not familiar with Kempenaer's graphs here is a link to a tutorial page. https://www.stockcharts.com/docs/doku.php?id=other-tools:rrg-charts

Also here is a 5 week period RRG of US indices with Dow moving from improving zone to leading while S&P composite moves from lagging to improving and Nasdaq stuck firmly in weakening.

Although I personally can't comment on the bond stuff, I wanted to weigh in on the RRG. I've seen it a few times on Bloomberg (and also on IG actually a few times on the IGTV) and I think they're great! Fantastic way to visually represent movements .

the below video is ok, but it doesn't really get started until about 2.20. Whilst this is only an 'ok' video in it's entirety, whilst I like is at 4.00 he slides the chart and you can see how things are turning cyclically and rotating (hence the name!)

for those who have the time there is this video. Haven't watched it be seems to be a deep dive.

@cryptotrader, yeah the slider part of the vid is a very good demonstration of how the RRGs works to show rotations over time and highlights the comparative instruments changing positions on the race track. The RRG is a great visual representation to show which horse to back from the rest of the pack.

I’ve seen these before on igtv videos. Think they’re pretty good visually but would be interested to see how they create trade ideas over just giving and understanding of where the markets have been. 

Is there anyway to try this stuff out?

@PandaFace I should have included the link for the US indices RRG which is always on display and updated. Also has a slider and an animate button which goes back up to 30 weeks though the zones don't readjust for size and shape as they do in real time.

Noticed that the Nasdaq is just leaving the weakening zone and moving into lagging.

Hi folks, you may have seen the 'announcement' on Community, but at 10:30 today we'll have Julius de Kempenear, founder of Relative Rotation Graphs (RRGs) discussing GBP and how it is trading among its peers, as well as the future prospects of the FTSE 100. We'll be discussing the sectors on the move and how RRG’s try to identify a trend.

Do you have any questions?! Submit them before 10:15 and I'll make sure Jeremy gets them. If you wanted a quick overview on RRGs check out some of the posts above, or the below videos (which granted is a couple years old now).

And which other indicators would you suggest to use along with RRG ? Other strength indicators I assume?

That was an excellent presentation, and especially the segment on using the RRG to see the big picture and deciding what to focus on then looking to a normal chart to confirm that view and look for entry opportunities.

Very well done, could have been longer with more examples.

Was aware of RRG via stockcharts.com but was not aware of  https://www.relativerotationgraphs.com/

Hey folks - we've had some replies to those two questions as bellow... 

On 16/05/2019 at 09:44, PandaFace said:

@JamesIG how do you translate the rotation into a buy/sell signal? 

"RRGs were never designed to be a trading system and have specific "rules" for entry and exit. They are much more a visualization tool. The best comparison is with a regular price/bar-chart. What are the entry and exit points there? Some use, for example, 10-day breakouts while others use 50-day breakouts. Same tool, different rules.

Also the time frame is very important. The image on a daily bar-chart is much more granular than on a weekly bar-chart. Same goes for a Relative Rotation Graph. RRGs based on daily data rotate much faster than RRGs using weekly data.

As a rule of thumb we know that for example crossovers from improving into leading are conservative, late, entries. Crossovers from lagging into improving are very aggressive, and therefore higher risk but a better reward when the rotation continues all the way through. The sweet-spot is probably somewhere in the middle depending on your risk-appetite."

"Personally I like to have what I call a "raw" relative strength line in my charts in combination with the RRG-Lines (JdK RS-Ratio and JdK RS-Momentum). If you want to combine a relative view with an absolute (price based) view I primarily use a plain vanilla bar-chart or candle-chart and maybe add a 9-period RSi and a MACD to asses trends in price."

    • @Foxy No you cant just trade anything, its licenced, i believe there are 61 pairs/markets that the program can trade in. Each Pair has a retail price of $3300inc but i never paid that, i got my initial 5 pairs for $5500. For my $15K i got another 20 pairs, this time including Gold, and a couple of Index's.
    • If one was unsure about investing in specific funds and trusts then they could consider constructing an ETF portfolio based on these technology themes. The potential is there for higher returns on specialist funds and trusts due to stock picking and capital allocation strategies. However, an ETF, will be a lower cost option but not necessarily a better performing one.
    • Now I have openly shared that I have invested in Bitcoin via XBT Provider One in the SEK (Swedish Krona) currency as I am not sure what the future for the Euro holds with Brexit uncertainty and what any hard Brexit implications may be for other EU Member States. However, you can invest in this in EUR currency too. The same applies for in Ether as well. It now offers ETN's for XRP and Litecoin.  There is also the Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust which is trading at a premium but if Bitcoin does well then this too could flourish for investors. This product is more for investing in Bitcoin rather than trading it. It presents a great way for an someone to gain exposure to Bitcoin in their portfolio without having to either physically acquire it and opening a Crypto Wallet, etc. or trading it. I believe nearly 3/4 of the demand from investors investing in this trust is from institutional investors including hedge funds based on the first quarter of 2019.
